No, BFG loves to crank up the price for a WC unit. The price difference between a regular GTX 295 and that watercooled one could buy me 2 of my high end waterblocks for my 4870 X2s.

'Only' 3 fans on the latest gtx275 lol.

And you don't think evga or bfg will put a wc on a 275? Hell evga has them on the 260 so I am sure it will happen. You are such a ati fanboy that you will try to find anything to put down nvidia. You always bend facts to suit your needs and it is quite tiring. you should open your eyes and see good things and bad things both have done.

nice, 1ghz... thats the first GPU to hit the 1000mhz barrior correct?

but who would by that from powercolor.. they dont have that great of a rep from reveiws of seen, thats for sure
April 9, 2009 2:32:33 AM

yup I had horrible exp with power color. X800 XL powercolor, sooo much trouble!
April 9, 2009 2:35:17 AM

Really wish eva would do like xfx does and make both or xfx make a wc setup. I am going core i7 so I don't have to have 2 rigs. I like the option to go with which ever is better at the time and go crossfire or sli. I personally could care less with whichever is best just that I want it.

I really doubt that it matter who the distributor is when it comes to GPUs, unless they offer something special like XFX's double lifetime warranty and EVGAs step-up program.
April 9, 2009 2:39:57 AM

Distributors also apply the Thermal paste remember, the cooler and the in some cases the board.

So really.... it does matter for distributor sometimes.
April 9, 2009 2:45:08 AM

come on!! cant like saphire, or HIS, or SOMEBODY that has a great gpu rep make the first liquad cooled 4890?!
theres xfx as well... ;) 
April 9, 2009 10:48:22 AM

I replace the paste on all my XFX boards, it does not void the warranty. Go XFX!

negative, i believe it was either the 8600 or the 9600 that allowed 1ghz+ on the core. with a little modding of course.

Awww, man! I was hoping for at least 5. :lol: 

Water cooling is nothing new, but I would like to see some innovation. I would like more than just the waterblock.

That is a 400MHz increase! You have to be kidding me! Exactly when did this happen?
April 10, 2009 9:11:27 AM

No way was it the 8600. I heard that it could go to about 890MHz with a volt mod, but I'm not exactly comfortable with volt mods. Most people aren't.

Ok, I have a question. For eg., if a 4850 can withstand heat upto 110C, and it goes to 70C on load at 700/1100, can you keep increasing it till it comes to about 100C load with something like 1000/1400? Only for benchmarking of course.
