    After Chinese New Year (that is, after February 11th) Sapphire Technology will start selling a Radeon HD 3870 X2 graphics card with factory water cooling setup, they call it “Atomic WaterCooled” and claim to offer ultra high performance. By the looks of it below, it first reminds me of the soon released CoolIT water block, secondly of the Leadtek WinFast PX8800 ULTRA Leviathan. In fact, if you look closely at the Leviathan card you'll notice they both use the same cooling unit, perhaps the difference comes in the water block design only. Pricing and clock speeds of the Atomic WaterCooled X2 are unknown at this stage.

    I wish they came up with a slightly lower-priced Atomic Radeon with the Vapour-X coolers.

    i WOULD NOT spend my money on that. the card itself 3870x2 is nice but keep the cooler. id rather use stock than that.

    i wish consumers would wise up so we wouldnt see so much of this overpriced underperforming hardware constantly flooding the market.

    Not a bad looking cooler. I actually like the looks of it. A GPU with its own radiator to cool it is pretty awesome. Id like to see a couple of reviews, kind of feel what temps we may get with it.

    Well, there arent any HD3870X2 water blocks... YET. It just looks like a nice normal GPU from that.

    That block looks very clean...
    I actually had a thought today when looking at some pics of the 3870x2 on newegg... I thought: "man, aftermarket cooling companies will have fun designing something for this one..."

    Does it mean that you dont have to keep changing the fluid like other water coolers?
