    Video cards with massive coolers are nothing new, PowerColor has been making them for years, but this is the first time I have seen a four slot cooler that is a self-contained water cooling unit as well. The site is in Chinese and translating it doesn't help much so I snagged some pics to share with you guys.

    That won't stress the slot at all I'm sure.

    Or instead of doing all this crazy cooling you just buy a Titan X, or wait for a 1080ti

    I thought PowerColor only made AMD cards.

    How the hell does that even work? Is it self contained, as in you throw it in an open loop and the rad in the card does the heat transfer? Is that a pump on the rear of the card? WTF?

    KYLE! Grab one of these and abuse it!

    Those cards are positively tiny compared to some of the ones we have now...

    Maybe it is for external power for this behemoth.

    What a ridiculous card. Who is this product for?

    Water cooling loops are not nearly as scary as some people think, just go for a custom loop and stop being distracted by gimmicks like this.

    Not the best idea, rads normally exit hot air from the case, for good reason.
    This re-circulates some of the hot air it expels.
    OK for an open air case but you might as well have an open air rad if going that route.

    As mentioned, a vertical motherboard would see severe stress and most likely void the warranty due to physical damage.
    Only safe for desktop style cases.

    Actually that photo stopped me in my tracks as well. I made the card full size on my screen against a similar card in front of me and went "holy cow! the perspective of that shot makes the girl look like she's 3 feet tall."

    It's like an optical illusion right? It would have been even better if it were a double fan unit lol.

    YES, this is the card I have been waiting for. Now I will jump onboard the SLI community.

    This will fit nice into my new case, I am using a sea container.

    This reminds me of those big game photos where the guy is always standing about 20 ft behind the tiny little spiker he just put down, pretending its a Pope & Young world record.

    It would be better as a 4-slot air cooler...

    This defeats the purpose of water cooling.

    I had one of the developer "samples" that came in the film reel case, kept it for years (though I only used it for a few months). Threw it out when moving from California to Canada, kinda wish I'd kept it. Threw away a (dead) XBox 360 developer box at the same time (the PowerMac), never got around to gutting the case and putting a real PC inside like I had planned.
