How well does it overclock versus the stock cooler? Really nice cooler.

Where did you buy it at? I am looking to buy the exact same cooler.

Won't make a difference w/ overclocking unless you have a serious airflow problem in your case or a volt mod on your card. The G80 is voltage limited once it hits around 650/2100. Mine stays at 51C under full load and will not go higher on the clocks without artifacting on the ATi Tool cube test.

The only reseller of aquacomputer in the US is: http://sharkacomputers.com/

However, they don't have that block in stock. You can order from overseas too direct from the manufacturer.

There are a few other European manufacturers that make G80 blocks as well: http://ekwaterblocks.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=21_31_42&products_id=143&osCsid=8f29589a1de742257e5f5d1af9014a71

This is not accurate. I almost bought an 8800GTX from a fellow that hit 680 core and 2200 memory straight out of the box on stock cooling without any mods whatsoever. Matter fact, he had two of them. They were XFX cards but they were based on the same reference design.

There are always exceptions, but for the most part my statement was accurate.

Card Core Overclock Memory Overclock
ASUS GeForce EN8800 GTX 629MHz 1021MHz
BFG GeForce 8800 GTX 649MHz 973MHz
EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTX w/ ACS3 659MHz 1013MHz
Leadtek Winfast GeForce 8800 GTX 627MHz 1033MHz
MSI GeForce NX8800 GTX 652MHz 1040MHz
Sparkle Calibre 8800 GTX 631MHz 914MHz
Sparkle GeForce 8800 GTX 629MHz 1011MHz
XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 654MHz 866MHz


Also check the signatures of everyone here who owns an 8800GTX. I've yet to see anybody get the scores you claim on both the core and memory unless they had a volt mod, and even then it's not far from what I was claiming.

I can agree with that. Good reference. I was saying that your statement was not accurate because it sounded like you were saying because of the limited voltage that higher overclocks were not possible without modding the board. That's what I thought you were saying.

if you think your card is actually running at 660, look again. It stops at 648mhz. :P

clock your card to 650 or whatever it goes to, then look in rivatuner hardware monitoring.

Yeah I see it says 648. Is it accurate, though?

Probably a bug in RT. Surely the card can be overclocked higher than 648. That would be silly. I have seen 8800GTX's hit 1000 on the core.

Its not a bug, if you set it at 630 or something around there it will be 648 I think. Of course, if you can get over 660, some point it will raise again. Its like a FSB:RAM ratio thing.

At 662 it will rise to 675mhz.
