"A lot cooler than water?" Hardly. At stock settings on my Ultra my card loads at 54C. With it clocked to 700|1836|2300 it loads at 58C. And that's with my quad in the loop with it.

When I had my GTX before, it loaded at 51C when overclocked to 650|2100.

A good water setup will always be more effective than the best air-cooled heatsink money can buy.
