Default Virtual Hideout reviews Corsair Nautilus GPU waterblocks

This waterblock uses 3/8" internal diameter tubing to cool any of NVIDIA's 7800 GT, 7800 GTX, 7900 GT, 7900 GTX and 7950 GT (single only) series video cards. While keeping the cards much cooler than stock cooling, in the tests, the actual overclocking benefit of using these waterblocks was not super- However if you're using a water setup and are looking for reduced noise, and/or are concerned about high ambient temperatures, these blocks as reviewed seem to be a good solution.

"When water cooling started really becoming a mainstream and feasibly marketable product, many a company saw that it could produce their own variations that are more compatible and often much better than the common product. The consumers are typically concerned about two main things when it comes to computers. How does it perform? And how does it look?
Corsair has been a prominent figure in the memory module sector for years and has become a staple of sorts among the computer market for their memory modules for their reliability and performance. It isn't uncommon to find their modules in many of the specialty ordered computer systems whether on the web or at your local computer store.

When Corsair decided to design and manufacturer their own water cooling system many were curious how well their first attempt would do. Their visions weren't disappointing and continue to improve with each revision just as any other water cooling kit does. One of their latest revisions to their water blocks is the Nautilus GPU Block intended for the NVidia Geforce series graphics cards."
