I bought my Tidewater today and couldn't wait, so I got the super duper extra shipping, so hopefully it will come tomorrow! I can't wait <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/exhappysmiley.png" style="border:0px solid;" title="Exhappysmiley">

Be sure to post your temps before and after switching, I want to see how well this works since I was skeptical of it. Subscribed* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Contray to the image that Tt has in alot of their products.. these do very well even the Tidewater Plus.. they can get into places that other blocks cannot which makes them quite versatile for various GPUs. Do post some temps before and after... make sure you use some Ramsinks as the kit never use to come with them.<br><br>

OK. It came. I installed it. It runs well. I haven't gotten full load temps because my door is still off (look at pics). Stock cooler was 50C/85-95C idle/load and the tidewater is 36C idle and the max I have seen is 62C. The volt regulars heat up too much though. At 760/1720 I run stable for about 3-5 mins, then it heats up and starts to artifact.<br>
It's big!<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/5732/mvc023siu9.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
Here's my ram.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/9518/mvc029sgo0.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
My R580 core ^_^<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img182.imageshack.us/img182/6061/mvc030sea0.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
I think the card looks sexy this way...and the tidewater comes with RAM heatsinks.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/2793/mvc032see6.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>

Looks like you got decent temps. Where are you putting that little radiator or whatever?

It's in the bottom two PCI slots, it took forever to get it in there because either my cheap case or TT's lack of a measuring tape put the rad about 1 cm off from where it is suppose to screw in.

Standard R580 core and some 1.2ns memory. It should work pretty well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Now I have a problem... I want my tv tuner back in there, but it's not going to work well sitting right above that intake for the rad. ANyone know of a great pci-e x1 tv tuner? The only one I found on newegg was $70, which I might get because the image quatily would own the one I have now.
