Congrats on your new card. Have you seen the Evga waterblocked cards yet? EVGA | Intelligent Innovation Well never mind I think I read you have been to their site, but for those who haven't take a look. Also this has probably been posted already but just in case, Toms reviews of the 2 cards Meet The GeForce GTX 480 And 470 : GeForce GTX 480 And 470: From Fermi And GF100 To Actual Cards!. Fabe

Yea I've seen the eVGA waterblocks, they are actually swiftech blocks.. Gabe makes some good stuff and it's a nice block. It cools the cards well they had some info on there site about it a while back.

I already ordered a Water-block for my card. it's the Danger Den block. check out these pics. I got the Nickel Version. so it will be shiny.

Nice! I kinda like the copper ones but the Nickel would put off a cleaner led color if you have any. Fabe

Yeah, 2 out of 3 4890 vanillas I had died.

I've pretty much scratched them from my list of future card makers.

It is disappointing, they made great 6 series and 7 series nForce motherboards, both my 750 and 790 were/are running great. x58 came, and there was a bunch of problems with them. Their graphics cards were great until it hit the 9 series, where they kind of stepped out of the enthusiast area and in to mainstream.

With the GTX400s now, EVGA and ASUS appear to be the main recommended card makers.

My remaining card is from the same batch that the other two came from...
