    Cool! Kinda plain, but I think that's one of the better looking FXs I've seen so far. The box is shiny, also. Oooo! :)

    That's kinda cool packaging, though. Is the way one manufacturer is sending'm out? or just a gag all the way 'round?

    Revenant, this is Nvidia's own packaging for their reference card, I would guess that they send their NV30's to magazines, review sites, etc, in this imitation spool can.

    Gainward's Ultra/1000 Plus watercooled board runs perfectly stable at 550/1100MHz, operating at 30°C degrees.
    They've had the NV30 graphics processor unit running as high as 580MHz, so it can be overclocked after all.

    The fun continues, and yes it's that fan again.

    How to cook your Geforce FX 5800 Ultra?

    Update 2

    NVIDIA gave us a call and they told us they were trying to recreate the problem and that they were partially "successful". Basically, they can encounter everything BUT screen corruption (artifacts and other beasts) – i.e. the fan indeed stops blah blah. They also told us that their chips are tested in an oven to make sure they work without any problems at temperatures around 100C. So, their current conclusion is that our board is a black sheep... NVIDIA couldn’t get DiveVision screensaver to work "as advertised" but OpenGL Pipes and Matrix Reloaded worked fine.

    The new version, given the label "revision 2" was shown off today. This isn't the final shipping version, and Gainward were keen to further enlist the thoughts of the Bit-Tech experts to further develop this system in order to enable higher overclocks and lower noise. They expect to be at revision 4 before they have the final product.

    The fittings are shown on a dead demonstration 5800 Ultra board. As you can see there are quite a few major changes including the two separate memory coolers instead of the one piece which was placed over all four BGA DDR-II RAM modules on each side. The main GPU block has changed, although we are told that in the future all fittings will be positioned such that a PCI slot isn't taken up.

    However the most important thing about this new revision of the water-cooling solution is that it can be used on other Gainward cards. The fittings were removed from the dummy 5800 Ultra board and placed on a Gainward 5200 Ultra. Quickly we saw massive overclocks and low temperatures (26-27C whilst running 3DMark 2001). For reference, we usually see temperatures of 59-64C on the 5800 Ultra cards.

    The reservoir and radiator are all packed into a 5.25" bay fitting lunchbox. The unit can be easily filled with water using a syringe and any air bubbles that are trapped will be automatically dispersed within 30 minutes of running. We couldn't get a picture of the inside, however the back looks fairly simple.

    On the front you have a digital temperature display which can take up to three sensor readings.

    The Gainward FX PowerPack! Ultra/1000 Plus "Golden Sample" (aka 5800 Ultra) will retail for £479.99. The whole cooling solution is said to retain for €200 (about £140). Gainward expect some online retailers to offer the CoolFX for around £120.

    Many will question whether there is a large enough market for a solution that costs over £600, however there is no doubting that the CoolFX is by far the most innovative out-of-the-box cooling solution that anyone has offered and kudos must go to Gainward for taking the risk. Also further kudos for listening to Bit-Tech rather than doing an in-house job which probably wouldn't please real water-cooling enthusiasts.

    Expect these on the shelves in May.

    Whilst unconfirmed, it appears that the GeForce FX 5900 (value) is actually an NV30.
