Not everyone wants to go for straight up water cooling, but I thought a one stop thread to track new cooling solutions may come in handy as some should be due out soon.
I'm just going to post links showing the products at the moment, maybe some benches I can dig up later as I find them.

I'm also not recommending any products, simply posting info as I find it. I'm sure there are more in the works I've missed, also if any of you have been hunting benches on a particular product, please post it! Thanks.

If any mods see solutions and would like to update this post, please do. :)

thought this might be appropriate. has 2 250mm fans blowing directly on my dual gtx480's. keeps my gpus at a steady 65C under full load.
