EVGA GTX 480/470 Hydro Copper FTW – Be Cool

The world’s fastest GPU now meets the world’s best waterblock. EVGA teamed up with Swiftech to deliver a solution that truly goes “For The Win!” The EVGA Hydro Copper waterblock uses a 0.6x0.6mm thin pin matrix, and the base plate is made of chrome plated electrolytic C110 copper which gives it a clean look. The integrated heat pipe connects to the power mosfet heatsink for optimal cooling.

High performance, high flow fittings are also included in both 1/2” and 3/8” sizes. These barbs are 2-way, 3-way and even 4-way SLI compatible! Below is an example of the remarkable GPU temperature difference:

I guess we'll be seeing quite a few overclocked watercooled cards with how hot fermi is even at stock.

This looks like the way to go for Fermi. I might have to do my first WC build in 6 years...

Jacob just posted up a bunch of development pictures that are fun to look at:

Some people asking for internal pictures so here it is! This block is the GTX 480, the 470 is similar.

The base it made out of nickel plated C110 Copper, and top plate is delrin.

Here is the outside of the waterblock:

If you take off the top, you can see the internals, and the integrated heatpipe to the VRMs

A closer look at the internals, and you can see the 0.6mm thin pin matrix, and the reflective properties of the block itself.

Here is the back of the block, all the memory are cooled, and once again you can see the smoothness of the block where it contacts the memory and GPU.

Lastly we have the inside of the top delrin piece, here you can see the flowpath, and separator.

Of course none of this would matter if we didn't have good performance, so here are load performance numbers for both the GTX 480/470:

GTX 470
Load Heatsink: 83c
Load Waterblock: 38c

GTX 480
Load Heatsink: 95c
Load Waterblock: 49c

Simply amazing. And I thought the stock cooler was doing a nice job (at least by the way it looks).
