For those of you who don't hang out in Overclocking or homebuild,
heres a pair of watercooled DCII's with a twist, I modded them to keep the original shrouds
Meet the Asus 6950 DCIIH20 (very special edition hehe)
first off, take em to bits
Block on and fittings,er fitted
Don't forget the tubing, can't easily get to the block once the shrouds back on
Because its welded on with epoxy putty
Fans back on once the putty is set
and the shroud back on
Both cards done, note elbow direction, cards are linked at the back, not the 'normal' way
And they're back in the case, you can see more tubing than I'd like but I'm pleased with how its gone

Best of both worlds, I get the temps of water, the airflow of the four 100mm fans and the awesome visual effect of a tripleslot shroud (or two)
Maybe other DCII owners will follow suit and go hybrid too?
So, what do you graphics cards guys think?
