    Isn't it ironic - air-cooled CPU and water-cooled GPU...

    People must have alot of time on their hands,hell the card comes with a little fan with out memory heatsinks except the Ultra and it ran find,or the one I tested did,I think this is to the extreme,how many more FPS will he get for all that extra hardware??,Plus a water leak to change his whole system when things go bad .Should Call it pre-vapor hardware LOL.

    BTW I do haft to says it is very nice craftmanship throw.

    Grief, if computer cases aren't packed enough already. Imagine that and a water cooled CPU ...

    No, I was just pointing out how packed a case would be if the CPU was also watercooled. Two lots of input pipes, and output pipes, unless you run it off one, which I don't think would be very effective.

    Be watercooling RAM next.

    It can be as effective to have the cpu and gpu cooled by the one setup, it just depends on what order you have the setup in.

    Ah i thought you meant it like "watercooling a cpu has never been done before! mebbe theyll do that next" Yea cases will be a bit packed, but just use a manafold.
    I dont like sig pics so i turn off sigs Which doesnt help when i dont know what ive written here! DOH!
