BFG unveils watercooled GeForce GTX 295

Posted on Friday, Feb 13 2009 @ 22:11 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
BFG has released the GeForce GTX 295 H2O graphics card, this watercooled model has a 576MHz core, 1242MHz shaders and 1792MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1998MHz. These are the standard clockspeeds of a GeForce GTX 295, but I assume the H2O edition will overclock a lot better.
BFG Technologies has taken their award-winning GeForce GTX 295 dual GPU graphics card and combined it with a highly efficient, thermally advanced copper water block co-developed with the experts at Danger Den™ to offer a totally silent cooling solution for customers who have an existing water cooling system set up. This BFG ThermoIntelligence water block delivers an exceptional 44°C lower GPU operating temperature (than with air cooling), and cools all heat generating points on the card—GPU, RAM, voltage regulators, and I/O chip.

“Since the GeForce GTX 295 is essentially two graphics cards and two GPUs sandwiched together, developing this ThermoIntelligence water block to work with the GeForce GTX 295 board was more complex than most”, said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. “Our pre-assembled solution is attractive to those enthusiasts looking for top of the line performance without the risk of building it themselves, and that is also covered by our famous lifetime warranty. Customers purchasing this unit can rest assured that they’ll have the best built water block on the fastest single graphics card on the planet.”

Water cooled but stock speeds? Um why? I could buy my own waterblock for less than they'll charge. And if I have to overclock on my own, what possible reason would there be to buy the BFG version?

Either those clocks are dead wrong (and have yet to be decided) or this is a product that'll go absolutely nowhere.

I'd like to think that BFG wouldn't be that stupid...

Both the press release and the product page on BFG's website list these clockspeeds.
