PowerColor has been peddling some nice video cards for a long time now that geeks and gamers would really like to put inside their computers. Video cards, like CPUs and RAM, are often overclocked by the user to get more performance and to get the most out of a GPU, the card has to be cool. PowerColor's latest video card trades fans for a water block to keep the GPU nice and frosty.

The card is called the PowerColor LCS HD6970. The thing has 2GB of GDDR5 RAM and a core clock of 925MHz. The memory clock for the card is 1425MHz and the memory interface is 256-bit. The thing ships with lots of connectivity options and connectors with support for DVI, HDMI, and mini Display port all in the same device.

The copper cooling plate of the water block can cool the GPU to under 50C even under full load. The card comes with 3/8" and " fittings in the box. Pricing and availability on the card is not known at this time. You can expect to pay more than a normal PowerColor HD 6970 for sure.
