As by now we all know what a HD6990 looks like, and the none-more-black top of the LCS is fairly self-explanatory, let's have some nerd porn by showing you around the Shadow H20 which I'm sure the Youtube watchers have already seen.

Two 8pin PCIe power connectors keep the HD6990s twin GPUs working at full capacity.

Doesn't it all look fabulous stuffed into the Rampage III Black Edition and the HAF case. No matter how gorgeous some of the heat-pipe arrangements are these days, the minimalism of a water-loop always gets our hearts pumping a bit faster.

Naturally things like this don't just fall into place so we have to give some props to the many companies for lending us the bits to make this possible.

I'd just like to add that h20 added expense to one side, graphic cards with water blocks on them look very sexeh !

(Results in the oc3d reviews are still troubling me, especially when you look at same cards with better settings, where, to be fair, they really can't be slower.)

Ultra damn fast fps for sure. No quality and physx for me tho.

I actually thought it would be more expensive.

First off, nice review as always. Do love how the card has a full cover waterblock =D.

Personally I think any card that comes with a waterblock by default should have some sort of voltage tweaking so you can better exploit the extra cooling potential.

Also on the side note:

Call of Duty - Black Ops

If you're a fan of the Infinity Ward shooter then you have nothing to worry about here, or to be honest with any card. WTF
