A test on the eVGA GeForce GTX 280 HC16 Hydro Copper. A water-cooled pre-overclocked heavily pimped out EVGA GTX 280 HC 16 is what we'll review today. EVGA already overclocked this monster for you....

Look as a good solution but I see better solutions for 280, EK 280 solution are the best at date with two faces cooler solution

Upper side:

Back side memory Cooled with water, all heat sources covered .

lol, I ran my 9800GTX+ on 2600Mhz effective ( with stock cooler ) without any problems, so 2700Mhz for this card should be expected...

And, yeah, great review... like always

I was expecting the OC to show more results. Also the Crysis benchmark is messed up, I get more FPS on High settings with very high for cheap hack (like turning on sun shafts, paralax bumpmapping, etc). Maybe its the 8.8 drivers.
