Not a bad little idea really. I guess the CPU fan would have to be oriented upwards so that the GPU gets more cooler air.

my buddy had an ASUS thingy like this on his 8800Ultra (first gen).

It was garbage, and the card was almost constantly overheating...

Atleast the BFG isnt 2x double slots like that asus garbage...

Essentially a coolit domino attached to a video card rather than a CPU, I wonder how well it works? I wasn't all that impressed with Domino ALC and I think the application will limit its function with certain setups, good luck with a SLI configuration unless your case will accomodate 2 of these. Also, those are pretty moddest overclocks on both cards, is it really worth the premium price tag?

The clock-speeds seem a little lacklustre, yeah. My own GTX280 H2OC came stock-clocked at 680/1458/1225, and that was some time ago now. Still, guess you never know what kind of overclocking headroom you might get with it.

They had to wire it at the edge without considering how long the card is.

Bah if you are going to put a card under water do it right, build a loop. I really dont see the point to unit's like this, but I guess I am not the target consumer.
