Default 470GTX Video Card Water Block Mayhem

When Nvidia introduced the 4xx series of video cards we were all amazed at the power these video cards had. At the same time, we were all shocked at the temperatures these video cards reached to give us that level of performance.

I am not going to lie to you, I also freaked out when I saw the temperatures of my 470GTX reach above the 75C mark. Even with the fan of this video card running at full speed, and having an 80CFM 120mm fan blowing directly down across the video card, my temperatures were still reaching the 80C range. This video card quickly became known around here as 'Nvidia 470GTX video card, the only way to heat your house.'

Since I absolutely loved this video card's performance, and its abilities that it was offering me, I did not quite want to give up on it just yet. Since I am a big fan of water cooling, I decided it would be the best choice to grab a few water blocks and then see how this video card cools down.
