Impressive. I wonder how long until this type of cooling solution (if ever) becomes standard on super-high end solutions.

With nVidia- it'll probably become standard next-gen and even come with it's own dedicated power-brick (the card).

The nice part about this solution is the fact that it is not dedicated to a single card, it can used with your next card purchase IIRC.

Way too expensive. Make it around what I paid for my h50 and they would have a deal.

I already posted about this and if you read about the temps they are pretty bad for a water cooler. They mention load temps of 82c at stock. Now normally load temps for me on autofan are 95c. Why would anyone pay $200 for 82c when 3rd party air coolers will beat that for half the price. Makes no sense. Now if they were getting down to 70c I could see it being worth it maybe.

Info below from the Hexus preview

Dude I think you need to look at the preview in the above link.

A real-world assessment
Examining the whole noise/heat/power issue in more detail and taking a real-world game into account, we played through Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and noted where system-wide power-draw was highest. The game works the CPU's cores and gives the GPU(s) a good going over. We then left the card rendering the high power-draw scene for 10 minutes and logged the maximum temperature, fan-speed, and power-draw.

The observations were noted with the card(s) installed inside a Corsair Obsidian 800D chassis with side panels on. The table below highlights our findings and provides a subjective analysis of the fan noise.

GPU Power-draw (maximum) Temperature
(maximum) Quietness /10
(higher is better)
CoolIT GTX 480 OC 1.5GB 410W 73C 7
GeForce GTX 480 1.5GB 419W 94C 4/2
GeForce GTX 470 1.2GB 354W 94C 5/3
Radeon HD 5970 TOXIC 4GB 488W 64C 6.5
Radeon HD 5970 2GB 366W 77C 5
Radeon HD 5870 TOXIC 2GB 324W 66C 7
Radeon HD 5870 1GB 288W 76C 6
Radeon HD 5850 1GB 260W 63C 7


Let's explain the table. The noise perception is a subjective rating out of ten for the quietness of the card when under gaming load. Simple rpm doesn't always tell the full story.

During our session of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the temperature of our OMNI-cooled GTX 480 rose to 73C - a massive 20C less than NVIDIA's reference design.

Furthermore, the cooler remains remarkably quiet. With the radiator fan spinning at a moderate speed, it is barely audible and quieter than most of the comparison air-cooled cards.

I'll need to see more reviews full load temps should be a lot lower since its water. 73c is nice but since its water don't you think 60c would be where its at?

Thats the other thing they never mentioned how fast the speed was since that fan can go up to a very high speed they should of done test at low speed, medium then high. Its crappy review really and doesn't impress me that much.

I`m not the least bit impressed with this cooler.

Someone pointed out that they didn't say what their room temps were. So if they were testing at 75 or 80F then that would make the whole review worthless. I always try to keep room temps at 70F.

They should of used wider tubing I can imagine water flow is more restricted with such narrow tubes. Which may make temps not as good.
