BFG GTX 285 and GTX 295 With Self-Contained Liquid CoolingCategory: Video Cards
Posted: August 4, 2009 01:04PM
The latest additions to BFG's graphics line up will feature self-contained liquid cooling systems, which the company claims can reduce temperatures up to 30c under load when compared with traditional air cooled models. The two cards, the GeForce GTX 295 H2OC and the GeForce GTX 285 H2O+ will both ship with a ThermoIntelligence Advanced Cooling Solution provided by CoolIT. The system features a combined pump, fan and radiator assembly that installs to a rear fan mount in your case. The system is also designed to be maintenance free, which means no re-filling is required. Three different settings, Auto, Quiet and Maximum aim to give you control over cooling performance and noise. Naturally, the cards also come with bumped clockspeeds out of the box and will be available (in limited quantities) in the U.S. (through Newegg) and the U.K. soon. You should be able to pick up the GTX 295 H2OC starting tomorrow and the GTX 285 H2O+ on August 12th, though no pricing information is given.
