I'm curious how many are runnin' water cooled vid cards out there? I'm considerin' a few of the setups I've seen around - not narrowed down or anything yet . . . I'd like to get some feedback from those of you who are: what you're using, how much improvement you've seen, heatsinks applied to the chips help?, anything else you may think is worth taking into consideration.

Thanx in advance for your help.

i used becoolings video chip cooler on my radeon 64 using arctic silver epoxy to attach it, not much improvement at all to be honest, I think it has more to do with the radeon chip limits itself, getting it colder didnt seem to help- I like the radeon alot, but it looks like I am going to get a geforce2 or 3 , they are supposed to be very successful overclockers when cooled properly

I am contemplating cooling my radeon as we speak with water cooling, I have a senfu block, and am in the process of trying to figure out how to clamp the block to my radeon, I can run the water,( anti freeze mix actually), from my dorm fridge, of which I run my main pump, I may just use epoxy, but am open to any thoughts you guys have// if you have any input, email me?

yeah,
I have my Prophet GTS pro water cooled with a 72W petier. I got big gains in core clock speed, with stock cooling it maxed out at 220MHz and with the water/pelt plus a voltage mod I'm running at 285MHz.
See the pic:

Gentlemen, checkout this case w/ built in H2O cooling, it cools the CPU, Video card, HDD and the PSU. Looks pretty cool.

the ONLY way to do it with a radeon is arctic silver epoxy, make sure you take the proper steps to get that heatsink off so you dont damage your chip!
Immoral, illegal and dishonest, but if you screw up the heatsink removal and damage the chip, arctic silver epoxy the stock heatsink/fan back on and RMA it!
(only if you are comfortable with the I, I, D. of course :)
