Believe it or not, this is far from the first time we've heard of a liquid cooled GPU; in fact, NVIDIA
was tossing the idea around way back in 2006
, when Quake III
and Unreal Tournament
were still top titles in the FPS realm. BFG Technologies, which currently holds the greatest name for a graphics card company ever
, has today introduced its GeForce GTX 285 H2O+ and GeForce GTX 295 H2OC cards, both of which boast ThermoIntelligence Advanced Cooling Solutions (read: self-contained liquid cooling systems). BFG
swears that both cards are completely maintenance free, with the GPUs kept around 30°C cooler under load as compared to standard air cooled models. There's no mention of pricing just yet, but both should be available any moment at NewEgg. Good luck resisting the sudden urge to upgrade.
