    Dude that review is the biggest piece of horse I've seen. Estimated benchmarks and testing on a unreleased or unleaked driver that probably hacked image quality down to get those improvements if they are even true. You have one review or one preview of something in your favor.. Big deal. Want me to show you 20 other reviews in the 295's favor? the title of the subject says it all "Computer Based"
    The 295's on it's first or second driver release. Give em time to optimize. Why is it that these guys are the only place that have showed the results? How come anandtech, toms, pcgh, Hardocp, hardwarecanucks have'nt posted anything like this yet?

    /end involvement in thread because I'm not getting into this again with you.
    No these are reviews and not previews. I'm not a fanboy either way but just the sheer biased opinion you bring to every nvidia thread pisses me off. But i'm done with it also.

    Jason, half the links you supplied did not work, and the rest doesn't give a direct comparison to 4870x2. What gives?

    Here's another link which compares the 295 to the 4870x2. I think their conclusion is fairly obvious.

    The answer is clear, if you want the gtx295 to be the irrefutable best card in the world, just give one to snipe.

    Well, that's a nice feature: you will be able to choose if the water should run parallel or one after another through the blocks.
    Can we get an estimated MSRP, availability stateside date, and some performance curves? You know, the important info. Thanks.

    Having both cards, I'll have to say that my 295GTX benches faster for over 80% of my games/situations. The only game that swings in ATI's favor consistently is Bioshock.

    Brand loyalty be damned. Give me the best performing product. At the moment the 295GTX is the best card on the market for 80% of the games I play. My only complaint is the price. I would have hoped to have seen this card come in at $400, especially when the next gen cards are coming in the 3rd quarter.


    Anyhow, who's gonna hit the market first with a WC block? I know AC and EK are working on one. Anyone have an ETA for US stores for their blocks? Also, will Swiftech or Dtek be releasing a block for this beast? Having a loud fan in my completely WC'ed system is really annoying me to no end.

    Fantastic. Any sketches or pricing?

    Can anyone comment on the quality of DD's full cover blocks since the 8800 debacle? I'll have to admit I lost faith after their 8800 blocks. How did their FC blocks compare since then?

    What was wrong with the Danger Den 8800GTX blocks????

    Never had a problem with mine.

    I have one on my 8800GTX now and at load it only gets up to 53c max and that's overclocked to 650?

    A certain batch had microfracture leaks. In addition, the quality of the craftsmanship left something to be desired when compared to the work that then newcoming EK had created. Quite frankly, as an OG DD purchaser, I was greatly disappointed with the block and promptly resold it. Anyhow, that was then, I'm hoping their recent blocks have stood up well since I'll most likely pick up the first 295 block that hits the market.

    I think I will be buying the one from Aquacomputer. That thing looks insane.

    If it's not too pricey though.....

    I called Jeremy the other day to show him how BFG is starting their own line of PC's with self contained cooling units. I didn't ask if he was making a block for them, but it seemed kind of awkward they went with someone else all of the sudden.

    Thanks for the price Shoggy. My only questions left are 1) Are there any mixed metals in this block? 2) Any performance data?

    Thanks.

    BFG is going the n00b wai by using Cool It stuff . . .ok if you are doing a SMALL case where you just do not have room for a proper radiator but the Phobos case is large enough to do proper water-cooling. Lame. This does not mean they will not still sell the GPUs with the blocks from the factory (different market guys). I doubt the Phobos will be long for this world anyways.

    Is there something wrong with the MC-TDX? They are offering two 1366 variations (I am using the one with the chipset bottom).

    Can anyone comment on the quality of DD's full cover blocks since the 8800 debacle? I'll have to admit I lost faith after their 8800 blocks. How did their FC blocks compare since then?
    I saw the DD block on a 295 this weekend. Their post 8800 blocks are totally different (they went back to the superior design they used before that series).
