Mentioning the Caymans usually conjures up images of pristine beaches, tanned women, money laundering and crystal clear Caribbean waters.

However, in the graphics world Cayman stands for AMD's latest high-end GPU series and PowerColor is the first AIB to offer a water cooled HD 6970 board.

The card features EKwaterblocks cooling capable of dissipating more heat than a bottle of Captain Morgan's Spiced Gold and a sweaty bucket of ice. The water block covers all vital components and PowerColor claims it can keep temperatures under 50°C at full load. The block itself features 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch fittings and ships with all the necessary O-rings needed to connect it to a liquid cooling system.
