Alphacool NexXxos NVXP is copper and cools the power converters wich is not unimportant when OCing.

I personly use the DangerDen, however if you have a koolance system already, it would be easier to go with the koolance because of the tubeing.

However that alphacool dose look intresting, but i cant find a price for it!

I'm not going to water cool my GT.
My NV5 does a good job cooling it so really
there is no need. :)

I'm going to wait for the next gen card.
Since I'm moving to PCI-E it would
just be a waste of $.

I'm not sure if it's available in the US yet. I payed 80 here in europe.

I really like the look of the NVXP. I can only speak from Expeariance with the Koolance cooler in a round about way. I have the GPU-180-L06 which is basicly the same block with different hose atachments. and even under heavy load in FarCry and HL2 the GPU dosent go over 41c at room temp of 75f thats with a 100Mhz over clock. and a CPU block and NB block inline also.
