NVidia 6800 series Water Block!!!

i was looking around at this local stores website and found this amazing block for the 6800 series cards. Not only does it cool the GPU but it also cools the mem!!! It's so crazy but it also has a big price tag. But if you get it I can only imagine how far you can OC those cards. Here is a link http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/fro...ml?id=u4B5Uaep

Cooling the memory seems a little pointless for the GT and Ultra. They both use DDR3 which produces nowhere near as much heat as standard DDR.

I can bench my x800 for hours and the memory chips will be almost stone cold. If you ever needed to cool them down, I'm sure some Ram heat sinks would be a far better idea.

$0.02

This thing looks good, and all purchasers have been happy. The reviewers on the other hand....

I've read that this adds such a tremendous amount of heat to your loop, that the particular reviewer suggested adding it to a seperate loop, or putting a rad in specifically for it. The temp drop is ok, but they said only allowed around 20 more mhz on the core. Also the machining on it is pretty bad because there are burrs on the side of it. For $98(www.directron.com) I'd expect better machining myself. You can get an adaptor for the swiftech block for 14 bux, and the block itself is only $40-ish. This is the route I plan on going, get some ramsinks for the ram and you should be good to go. This appears to be more for aesthetics than anything. I shouldn't talk without first hand experience though :-X

yes i would have to agree that this heatsink is def not worth 129 and i dont like the way they desinged it to cool the Ram (DDR 3 does not barely heat at true use ) but on the other hand the GPU FAN that comes with the card def needs to be removed and replaced with a watercooler to insure less Fan noise or EMP(EMP problems With studio Mikes etc)

Well these guys have it for around $150 but I found this and they have it for only $94. (now I just need $94)

But before you buy from ANY online company PLEASE check them out on www.resellerratings.com

**edit**

honestly I like this one as it matches my setup pretty good and you can adjust the fan speed. But it's not like the one that I posted befor witht he quick disconnect cables.

modular power supplies don't seem worth it to me :-/ for another 100 I could have nice cooling unit, better ram or something. Thats just thread crapping so ignor that, but I do want to bring to you attention no one really knows how solid the rails are on these, which is important in overclocking(a good psu). Just something to consider, but you guys are right those look damn hot!
