GeForce 8800 hits 660MHz with watercooling

— 1:50 PM on November 8, 2006

Nvidia's new GeForce 8800 GTX didn't end up requiring liquid cooling despite what some rumors suggested a few weeks ago, but that hasn't stopped SilenX from developing a fancy-looking waterblock specifically designed for the new card. Some German folks on the Award Fabrik forum have gotten their hands on a prototype, and the product certainly looks interesting. Where waterblocks generally only cover a graphics card's GPU and/or memory, this model takes care of the power regulation circuitry, as well. The guys at Award Fabrik say they were able to get a GeForce 8800 GTX's load temperature down from 84°C with the stock heatsink to just 51°C by using the SilenX waterblock, and that they managed to overclock the card from the stock 575MHz to a scorching 660MHz. Thanks to The Inquirer for the tip.
