It makes more sense IMO, after forking out serious money on a water block, to spend a bit more and get something thats guaranteed to hit some serious clocks. Lets face It water blocks alone aren't cheap, and they are rather stupid If all your doing Is water cooling for the fun of It and achieving what over clocks you would otherwise get with much cheaper after market air cooling. If this product is what they say it is then these is defanetly a market for this and I for one will pay the premium.

There's always that other side to watercooling though. Some do it to surpass air-cooling capacity while others do it to get somewhat equivalent capacity without all the noise. For example, the stock cooler on my x2 does a very, very good job IMO but in order to see it I have to wind it up a bit and listen to it and I assure you near 100% it's LOUD. I could however throw a block on it, grab a rad with some low-med Yates and call it a day.

This is concerning a air-cooled card with an aftermarket waterblock. I don't see the point of getting any pre-watercooled anything's unless you REALLY are going to do something silly and/or insane with them. Two reasons: high cost and justification for paying extra for the binning.

Now all that could be thrown out the window if someone just wants to enhance their e-peen
