The Arctic Spider sets a new standard for GPU cooling. Wintsch Labs has designed this product with the extreme overclocker in mind. Made for the GeForce 6800 graphics cards, the unit utilizes an amazingly powerful 437watt Qmax peltier device that is capable of delivering load temperatures below 0 degrees celsius. The Arctic Spider's 62mm 437watt Qmax TEC unit bests the competiors' standard 50mm modules by over 200 Watts!

:headbang: Its great innit. Any rough ideas on the price in rip off britain?
Also can someone please explain this quote to me

The TEC unit can be powered by a stand-alone 24volt - 25amp 600watt power supply or by connecting two Meanwell S-320-12 power supplies in series.

437watts x2, plus your watercooling setup, plus 2 6800 Ultras...
It's cool though, heh.

Wow, that's sweet. Below 0 degrees on water cooling. Unheard of. I wants. But I guess I'd need to go water cooling first to use it...

It's technically not water cooling, if you get a good enough block this setup isn't even that amazing, considering a 200W peltier would probably get your temperature below 0 degrees celcius anyway.

Who spends money on SLI and two 500+ dollar video cards and then worry about his electric bill?

Performance > electric bill :-D
