BFG Water-Cooled GF8800

A further product announcement relating to today's GeForce 8800 launch was made today by board manufacturer BFG Tech. In contrast to the dual-slot, fan-cooled reference design, the GeForce 8800 GTX Water Cooled Edition uses a hand-fitted, custom liquid cooling system produced by Danger Den to dramatically reduce the heat output of the chipset. The improved efficiency is such that the card is halved in size, freeing a nearby PCI Express slot for peripherals, BFG says. A large fan central to the reference board has also been eliminated, quieting the card during gaming and other situations that can stress the chipset. BFG sells the Water Cooled Edition of its new card for $799. A normal, dual-slot equivalent is also available for $599.
