I pointed it out to him and he then changed his sig to something else cause he accidently made fun of his case I did that for radiators also from feser, koolance, swiftech, and everyone said they were all BAD but in their SIG they had the same setup

i.e. "I own mythical computers; ignore me please."

I imagine that it'll perform better than a stock cooling solution. Water coolers generally over-rad the hell out of their computers anyway for the sake of 2-3 degree deltas. If they're only trying to do better than stock then they'll accomplish it and will do it without resorting to 75% fan speed.

Uhm, ***, some of you are on drugs or something, I'm sure that Sapphire would have at least tested their product as they were going along. Sapphire is a well known brand and the last thing they'd probably want to do is make something that would make them look like idiots.

Sure its not some super expensive watercooling loop which can cool your house and dog at the same time, but it sure is better than having a single noisy fan cooling 2 GPU's. Besides, like I said, with my old setup (Bigwater) I cooled an e6850@3Ghz and a slightly overclocked 8800GT with a single rad and a pump that pushed just over 100L/hr and the fan (Coolermaster Neon 120mm) ran at 1000rpm, I never had to change the fanspeed ever.

Even so, one of my friends with an old Koolance Exos (3 80mm fans) cooled his Q6600 @ 3Ghz and an old 8800GTS 640 for 2 years before he sold it to get an Aquagate Max, its still cooling someones rig.

So I guess now we just have to wait, I'm not saying its good and I'm not saying its bad but none of us can really judge it at all.

also, this is possibly TL;DR.

This is like putting lipstick on a pit bull.



The case is the best part of it, that's pretty sad. I have seen lots of noob posts about this card/loop combo. It would only be good to bring it to a noob lan party where nobody has ever seen any WCing before. It would be like that kid in "the wizard" that pulls out his Power glove to play Rad Racer.


I love the power glove, its so bad!







he he I pwn.

On-topic, that looks ugly. Small radiator too.
Come on...those pants are way too tight to be not made fun of.

I think we've all been pretty much owned.

Heres the review from Hexus: http://www.hexus.net/content/item.ph...=16651&page=12

First of all...that thing is a CPU Block and also a pump.


Second...

Graphics cards________ATOMIC_______Regular
Ambient temperature____22°C__________24°C
Idle temperature________37°C__________73°C
Load temperature_______64°C__________95°C
Ambient-to-load delta____42°C_________71°C

The good

The fastest single-slot liquid cooled card to grace our labs
Dramatically lowers Radeon HD 4870 X2 GPU temperatures
Makes water-cooling so easy your Nan could install it
Lowers overall system noise

The not so good

Premium price, the world's fastest never comes cheap. Card could cost as much as £550 ($700) retail.
Bundle doesn't include any games
Built-in CPU cooling could be better

64 load! OMG and on water! You know it wouldn't be half as bad without the CPU cooler in the same loop.

Hey I'm not saying this is great. But I was expecting this to be worse than the stock cooler. In that sense, I'm impressed.
