Hydro Copper FTW cards

In addition to reference and SuperClocked versions, EVGA is the first partner that has showed its water cooled Fermi cards, and although Inno3D announced that it will do a similar card, EVGA cards are already listed. The EVGA Geforce GTX 480/470 Hydro Copper FTW feature a Swiftech made water block and both feature a single slot design.

The Hydro Copper GTX 470 and GTX 480 will both feature a rather high factory overclock, and of course a rather high price tag so the GTX 470 HC FTW will cost US $499.99, or precisely the same amount of cash which you would pay for a standard GTX 480.

The GTX 480 HC FTW works at 750MHz for the GPU, 1500MHz for Shaders and 3800MHz for 1536MB of memory. This is quite a high factory overclock considering that the reference card works at 700/1401/3696MHz. The GTX 470 HC FTW works at 650MHz for the GPU, 1300MHz for Shaders and 3402MHz for 1280MB of GDDR5 memory. The reference GTX 470 works at 607/1215/3348MHz.

The GTX 480 HC FTW will have a US $649.99 price tag while the GTX 470 HC FTW will have a US $499.99 price tag. Although, bear in mind that water blocks can easily reach prices of over US $100 so the price seems like a reasonable one.

Very nice looking GPU's, and i would not mind having a pair of them in SLI, even though i am not a big fan of water cooling. Also can't wait to see what the bench marks of these cards, and the standard air cooled ones.

I like this. Chances are with the temperatures these things run at a lot of people will be wanting to fork out the extra for these cards. Its nice to be able to watercool without losing the warranty.
