Asetek, the firm that created the mighty Vapochill phase-change cooling system and recently became entirely OEM cooling manufacturer has announced the availability of its latest creation - a full-cover liquid cooling block for GeForce 9800 GX2. The block is using a hybrid cooling technology whereby the GPU is cooled by a liquid cold plate while the memory and power sub-systems are cooled by a fan. This enables the cooling system to reduce the GPUs' temperatures by over 25°C compared to the standard all-air solution and do so while maintaining noise levels of just 22dBA. Asetek's GeForce 9800 GX2 cooling system is said to be ready for OEMs but its price tag has not been revealed. From what I know this type of cooling might pop-up in the form of the next gen exotic ASUS and Leadtek graphics cards, where the water block price will be included in the overall price.

I like the idea of hybrid cooling like this. Why add the heat from the memory to the waterloop when we all know memory doesn't need water cooling? This makes perfect sense to me.

The cooler looks great, but they really need to do a better job lapping their block, the one in the pictures looks like shit. Though it is probably a pre-production sample, so I shouldn't judge it yet.

Sweet. also, I didnt know they went strictly OEM cooling now. do they still make water cooling parts like pumps, rads, blocks and such? Not just for GPUS.

Can anyone tell me why the water connectors are that long? I know that we can bend them but why not the normal stainless steel type as usual?

It's probably just a mock up cooler, they're just there to illustrate things I would have thought.

Wow huge water cooling block for the 98GX2. I would be worried about weight on the pci exp slot, and mobo, seriously :laugh:. So much power consumption on the psu LOL. Also there might be a issue with finding room for the card in a case with this water block.

It's no bigger than the stock heatsink.

The added cost will probably push this card into the upper $700 dollar range unfortunately..:(
