BFG Technologies has announced a new water cooled G92-based 8800 GTS, branded BFG NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS OC2 WC 512MB PCIe with ThermoIntelligence. Since the G92 8800 GTS has all the requirements to become a new best selling Nvidia card, this is considered to be a smart move made by BFG.
BFG has partnered up with Danger Den, well-known water block manufacturer, to create this card which comes with factory overclocked core from reference 650MHz to 700MHz and Shader clocks pushed from reference 1625MHz to 1728MHz. The only drawback is that 512MB of GDDR3 memory have remained at reference 1940MHz, but if the Danger Den water block also covers the memory chips there should be additional overclocking potential left in those memory chips.
According to the BFG this card should deliver up to 30°C lower GPU temperature when compared to reference cooled G92 8800GTS. The suggested price for this card is $529.99 USD and it also comes with 24/7 Technical support and true lifetime warranty. You can check out additional info here.
