Purdy. Every time I read about that Santa Clara HQ I read it as "Santa Clause headquarters" - with bits like that inside, the mistaken name might not be too far off accurate for many geeks
wow just wow
i neeeeed one so badly
but at £600 a piece i gonna have to mug a hell of alot of ppl to get 3 of them! lol
Its nice but the £100+ premium for Water Block & single slot ?
What's your point? The block alone will be around £70, plus you get to keep your warantee here.
Can't use dual slot cards in my machine at all as I need all 3 PCI slots so water is the only way to go, not seen any shots of the rear of this thing yet I have had quite a few water blocks that claim to be single slot but they add an unecessarily large backing plate or over large screws meaning that if you have a large PCI device in an adjacent slot like an Xfi with large caps I have to bend or Physx card with largish cooler then teh clearance isn't quite there, would you know if these have this issue or any further shots.
The best WC blocks I have had so far for fitting my stuff in are from Innovatek but even they provide a silly backing plate that I had to hack down would like to just buy something like this and have it fit without getting out the hacksaw/dremel.
If these are good I may just bring a few back from the US next month and take advantage of the nice exchnage rate
I saw this thing in person at the Geforce LAN, it looks friggen amazinly gorgeous...i'm getting two
didn't I read somewhere that this watercooled version would be available at 700MHz core and 2000MHz effective memory? (up from the 575/1800 std?).
*edit*...yah, it was here: http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2006/11/08/GeForce_8800_and_NForce_680i_availability_and_pric/
Kinda embarassing for Bit-Tech to forgot they mentioned theirselves...
Two, he? I haaaaaaaaaaaaaate you!
I'm thinking about getting a 7950GT as it's affordable. Maybe eVGA to make use of the 90-day-upgrade offer.
so its double sided ? it looks real nice, but I think I'll wait untill they have some oc'ed or a little price drop....
POWERRRRRRR!!! at a price...... I WANT!!!!!!!!!
oh well, 7950GX2 will do for me until Eddy Ek does a waterblock for it, and when something actually needs DX10.
this is the best it can get (at least for me). The best gfx in a package with no compromise.
BFG you now top my list of gfx manufacturers
I like the idea of single slot but not the idea of bfg.
looks awesome, i want one to make my pc almost silent. hopefully it will be taken up and other manufacturers will start making this kinda thing for us
What's wrong with BFG?
he did have rather big ears
Christmas here I come!!
