Vadim universal GPU block now compatible with GeForce 8800 GT

Posted on Wednesday, October 31 2007 @ 07:10:06 CET by

The Inquirer reports about a pretty interesting new watercooling block for GPUs from a small British firm called Vadim Computers. The special thing about their Blastflow waterblock is that most parts of the block are universal - if you want to upgrade to a new graphics card the only thing that will need to be replaced is the base plate of the watercooling block.
Vadim has and sent us pictures of its 8800GT aluminium plate, which can be simply bolted with Blastflow Siberian GPU block, followed by mounting onto the card itself.

We have seen the Blastflow in action and this GPU block is quite an impressive one - we have completed the run on Zotac's 8800GTX and now we're running tests on XFX 8800Ultra, and Gainward's 8800GT.

As soon as we complete this ménage-a-quatre we'll run the review. So far, Zotac's 8800GTX went from already bloody impressive 630MHz (faster than 8800Ultra default clock) all the way to 710MHz, with memory working from 1GHz to 1.25GHz DDR. Results in this configuration are really impressive, but we are interested in what the 8800GT can do. We've seen a 700MHz GPU clock and 1GHz DDR memory clock on a single slot design from Zotac, so seeing this block on should yield with interesting results.

The watercooling block costs about £90 ($185) and the aluminum plates are sold for £20 ($41).
