Perhaps the fastest silent graphics card in the making, PowerColor's new HD 6850 SCS3 finally taken shape, and will launch soon. The card was spotted first in November 2010, but has since undergone many little changes, particularly with its PCB and components.

I'll bet the marketing will say "With customizable PCI rails to support the 87 pound heatsink, this is more likely to break your case than your motherboad."

Ridiculous.

lol yeah. either way though it scares me.

and i rly dont see a point. i dont think this would cater to anyone with a htpc. and prly anyone else is gna run water. or have other fans in their unit anyways.

thing does look impressive though. id love to hold it and see exactly how heavy it is

I'd like to see the back of the card to see what, if any, support is used. I'd also like to see what, if any, heatsinks are included for the rest of the circuitry. If there are anti-bending and adequate heat-removal measures in place it could be an awesome card.

Attached picture since it isn't in the OP.

This thing does NOT weigh more than my Golden Edition. Guaranteed. My heatsink is pure copper and this has what? five heatpipes and some aluminum fins... oh nooooes!

one think for sure though they should make it so if you want you can attach fans i know it ruins the whole entire silent thing but still it would be nice

Yeah, it comes with a fan holder that you mount to the case so the fans won't add weight to the cooler

That's only needed if you have a hot card though

VRM cooling is bad without a third-party heatsink though...

Wow. I like it but I'm afraid of it breaking something. I would be afraid if it broke my motherboard, case, or even worse, my hand.
