My System Specs

Default 2900XT pic series, and WC concerns

TechPowerUp posted a series of 2900xt pics from all angles inside and out and also echoed a concern that the metal shim around the core is raised just slightly higher than the core. This would defiantely cause problems for would-be watercoolers using existing waterblocks as the block would not be able to make contact with the core unless it was small enough to nest inside the metal shim (or you could remove the shim and void the warranty).

MSI shows off watercooled Radeon HD 2900XT :: TweakTown

Above is a link to a picture of an MSI watercooled 2900xt from tweaktown. Apparently, due to a prescott style current leak, good cooling is necessary for great overclocks, but according the the INQ, great clocks speeds can be achieved by keeping the temps at aroung the 30C mark. All conjecture, but we'll see- As people say, there's no point in taking anything said about this card until it widely distributed and tested.
