Well, given how much larger it is, if it didn't cool better and quieter Inno3D can fire their engineers.
Given the noise and temperature of Fermi, I think we'll be seeing a lot more custom coolers!
I'll get one if it's in the £270 range
Think you'll be looking at over £300. Prices on Scan at the moment are from £281 to £343. With a custom cooler it'll probably sit in the higher end of this range if not above.
Is it possible to do SLI on a triple slot cooler card? If so do this with the GTX480 and it might be worth considering but until the GTX470 is reduced in price its just not worth it.
Looks like an Arctic Cooling solution. Inno has done "custom" coolers with them in tha past.
That's one large cooler, better be good at cooling for the price.
Had a 4870x2 recently, thought id splash out on the posh triple fan cooler, £60 notes later a VERY cool 4870x2, whisper quiet .... oh yeah i had to spend another £30 to cool the bloody case down cos now all the massive heat was being blown strait into the case .....
Looks sooo good. wonder what the price will be.
yes if I remember it was designed by AC and distibuted to Inno. Look on the bright side customer coolers have well sorta gone to the way side as for a while the stock coolers did a decent job but thanks to Fermis horrible design its bring custom coolers back so in away it helps bring those companies back up.
This is just too costly as all the heat that use to flow out the back of your case will now flow right into your case and raise the temps of your overclocked CPU. I think Nvidia is forcing people to take out Bank loans to watercool a high end Core i7/ Fermi rig.
I hope EVGA makes a custom 470/480. Or Nvidia respins them and adds a 475/485.
Currently sitting at £268 on Ebuyer.com, grabbing one as we speak.
