"BFG Technologies Ships First BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra OC with Overclocked Core and Water Block Cooling

Overclocked, Water-cooled Graphics Card Called "Revolutionary" By Customer

Lake Bluff, IL – (June 24, 2004)– BFG Technologies®, Inc., a leading U.S.-based supplier of advanced 3D graphics cards and other PC enthusiast products, announced today that they have begun shipping the BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra OC. The first customer to pre-order and receive their card was Dana Sauer of Dagsboro, Delaware. Dana ordered a custom BFG 6800 Ultra OC that is overclocked out of the box to 470 MHz and comes with a pre-installed water block on the GPU.

"I chose BFG based on my positive past experience with them," said Dana Sauer. "With the BFG 6800 Ultra OC upgraded with a water block, BFG has built the card I would have had to piece together myself. I had to be first in line once I saw that BFG was offering a card pre-built with a water block and a chip overclocked out of the box by 70 MHz."

"I'm very impressed of what BFG is doing with the 6800U," said Eddie Scott, another early customer. "It is quite revolutionary in fact. I have never ever seen a company offer a 70 MHz OC out of the box, water jacket already installed, and to top it off a lifetime warranty. That is most impressive and also confirms that BFG is the one to follow." "
BFG Technologies is offering several bundle options for their latest hard-core graphics card:

BFG GeForce(TM) 6800 Ultra OC(TM) GPU with Water Block Overclocked to an impressive 70 MHz over the stock core clock, this card will feature a water block instead of a GPU fan for those wanting to purchase or who may already have an existing liquid-cooled PC system.

Sounds kick ass, but I personally will be putting my own WB on mine. I want to get a setup for a vapochill to put on one of these bad boys and see what some extreme cooling can do.
