BFG Announces Limited Edition, Liquid-Cooled GeForces

BFG TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES LIMITED EDITION, MAINTENANCE-FREE, SELF-CONTAINED LIQUID-COOLED GEFORCE GTX 285 AND GEFORCE GTX 295 GRAPHICS CARDS

Lake Forest, IL – (August 4, 2009) – BFG Technologies, Inc., the leading North American and European supplier of advanced NVIDIA-based 3D graphics cards, power supplies, and the Phobos High-Performance Gaming/Home Theater System, announced today the BFG GeForce GTX 285 H2O+ and GeForce GTX 295 H2OC graphics cards with ThermoIntelligence Advanced Cooling Solutions—saving customers time and money by providing a high performance graphics card plus a fully assembled, self-contained liquid cooling solution right out of the box.

The BFG GeForce GTX 285 H2O+ and GeForce GTX 295 H2OC ThermoIntelligence Advanced Cooling Solutions are maintenance-free, self-contained liquid cooling units attached to enthusiast-grade BFG Tech graphics cards that easily install into most systems right out of the box and never need refilling or additional components. These unique solutions feature a top of the line BFG Tech graphics card plus a high-performance cooling loop designed by CoolIT Systems that pushes coolant across the GPU and exhausts heat directly outside of the system chassis. Three different system speed settings—Auto, Quiet, and Maximum—give total control over acoustics and performance.

“We’re very excited to be the first company to bring this type of professional grade advanced cooling solution to PC enthusiasts”, said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. “The BFG ThermoIntelligence Advanced Cooling Solutions provide customers a way to get all of the benefits of liquid cooling their graphics cards right out of the box, without having to install a separate liquid cooling system that requires assembly, filling, and challenging maintenance from time to time.”

Impressive Heat Dissipation
Both ThermoIntelligence Advanced Cooling Solutions keep the graphics card running up to 30°C cooler under load as compared to standard air cooled models, which ensures reliable operation and longevity.

Custom Cold Plates
Both solutions feature highly efficient, custom cold plates that direct cooling liquid over vital parts of each specific graphics card to effectively absorb heat.

Heh, the first thing that came to my mind was that it looked a lot like a CootIt product... which it turned out to be :-P nice looking card :-)

Typical BFG...Cool idea, but it's overkill.  I feel like watercooled graphics cards are a waste.

if it runs quieter then it's worth it. Those fans on the vid cards can get pretty loud.

Cooling becomes more of an issue when you overclock. I suspect that a lot of the people who buy this unit will be seriously pushing the envelope with their cards. For my purposes, a liquid cooling system is overkill-- but down the road, when there's a little more product testing done, even consumer rigs will have liquid cooling systems.
