BFG GeForce 9800 GTX H2OC watercooled Marilyn Monroe once stated some like it hot. And where I say .. some don't. Yeah that movie was a comedy yet what I'm talking about definitely is not. Graphics...

The only way that watercooling would become a good solution is if they sold cards prepped for watercooling, and the same waterblock could be used over and over for every card this way you only have to buy the board and not a new copper block everytime

Nway good reviews, see you added sc for every games, magnifier is definitly a good feature too

Hilbert is great and still improving

Thanks for the review ....most impressed. Love watercooling. got hooked years ago when I was lab setup testing the limits of these things we put in cases. What a hobby ! Now i enjoy gaming to the max on the cheap. Can't wait to get a die shrunk 280 W/Ced. I'm saving my money

Very cool Magnifying feature! I'm not sure if its just me, but the magnified image appears below the original pic... could the magnified image be placed to the right of the selected pic? Either way, its a wicked feature!

Yeh, it is an AWESOME feature, but if I want to see the whole magnified picture, I cut off the top of the original photo and so cannot go and zoom in on the top half. Hope that made sense :/

Am I viewing at something other than the optimum resolution or something (using 1024x768 btw)?
