Thermaltake TideWater -- Fool proof VGA water cooling?

http://www.xtremecomputing.co.uk/review.php?id=223

The Tide Water did a bit better than I expected which is impressive considering the flow restrictions created by the GPU block and radiator, I was impressed with the TideWater, mostly while it was at low speed setting because of the silent operation, I would be dubious about overclocking at this setting. After looking at these results, I think you may be able to get away with it, although your GFX would be hitting the low-mid fifties, which is something any decent stock cooler can handle.

Running the TideWater at high-speed setting is a little disappointing due to the noise levels, not that it is loud but there is not much difference between the Stock cooler and TideWater in sound output. Apart from that the Tide Water is quite impressive and has a good temperature thresh hold, not once have I seen my overclocked LOAD temperature past 50c on the fast setting and on occasion my idle temp would drop to 28c. Itís just a shame Thermaltake did not use a bigger cooler then I think the Tide Water would have been the Ultimate GFX cooler on the market.
