Sorry to disappoint but I believe the 3GB cards trump the FTW HC's. These cards can be OC'd

Damn! I just found these after you mentioned them














I'm not sure how well these Swiftech compare to the EK Water blocks... but I like how the entire card is covered and the EVGA logo lights up.
damn damn damn

As a rule of thumb, I wouldn't suggest loading fan controller much beyond about 30% of their ratings, and if you're loading heavily...you should be cautious about heat dissipation especially if you are undervolting significantly.

When I reviewed the Sunbeam Rheosmart 3 here:

http://martinsliquidlab.org/2011/04/...m-rheosmart-3/

While it's rated to 30 watts per channel, when I tested with a pump pushing only 22 watts, 8volts on the pump pushed the large heatsinks up beyond a blistering 64C. I can't imagine having that sort of heat under a critical component like a hard drive.

I would suggest keeping channels under 10watts per channel for a more reasonable heat load.

I didn't like the heat at 20 watts....just too much for a small passive heatsink.

OR at LEAST add a fan to cool the heatsinks, then I'm sure it could do more.
