With the package out the way it's time to move onto the card and straight away when you look at it there isn't a whole lot to talk about thanks to the massive blue cover over the front. Apart from the cover the only thing you can notice are the two pipes coming out the top of the card.
These two pipes of course head on over to our radiator/pump where all the magic happens. With a 120mm fan and a weird L shape design it's clear that this bad boy is going to take up some serious case space and is going to make SLI a difficult task.
Moving over to the radiator we of course have the 120mm fan that helps cool the radiator and in turn cools the water to keep our 8800 Ultra nice and cool.
As far as connections go we have the standard inlet/outlet pipe as you would expect along with a molex connector that powers the pump. Coming off that is another little cable that plugs into the video card and spins the fan.
The whole setup is pretty effortless thanks to the liquid already being inside the tubes/radiator. You literally just have to bolt it in, plug some power connectors in and away you go.
With that sorted out, quickly moving back to the card it's a very standard setup. Across the top of the card we have both our SLI connectors and two 6-Pin PCI Express connectors.
I/O wise we have the standard Dual Link DVI connectors that we are used to seeing on most high-end cards along with our little TV-Out port.
As you would expect the card is going to be packing some decent clocks, so what are they? The standard 8800 Ultra comes packed with a 612MHz core and 2160MHz DDR memory clock. The Leadtek Ultra Leviathan comes in at a huge 684MHz core and 2322MHz DDR memory clock.
