PNY is a pretty conservative company compared to BFG, I doubt they didn't test the CPU/GPU loop before announcing this. Keep in mind, that's a hybrid air/water GPU block. It's cooled by something like a single rad Coolit Omni on top of your standard GTX 580 stock dual slot air cooler.

so how much of the stock cooling did they cut?
if not much or none(reconfigured) then the addition of the watercooling should bring very nice
numbers. thus adding a cpu could actually make sense.

It seems like trying to run SLI with these would be a hassle finding two 120mm fan spots close enough to the GPU's. I wonder how long the pipes are and how flexible.

having read this i was reminded of a product i saw awhile ago from coolit, a universal gpu liquid cooler that was to come out in 2010 sometime. did it ever come out??? I really like these closed loop systems these days, simple low upkeep. kind of figured this was a flop or they decided it would cost too much.

They never manufactured any liquid cooled stuffs before. Hope they don't screw it up.
