The water cooled graphics card isn't something that's exactly new; we've seen a lot of companies offer it over the past few years. BFG Tech tends to go the more hard core route which involves people needing an existing water cooled setup within their case.
Other companies go for the all-in-one solution; MSI did it not too long ago with the 9 series and we've also seen ECS release a dual pack which comes with two 9800 GTX+ cards. We've even seen some companies do it to AMD cards, but not for a while now, it seems.
Today we're looking at one that comes from ZOTAC. It's an all-in-one system that's strapped to one of NVIDIAs higher end cards, the 9800 GTX+. While a bit of a pointless model and designed just to cause a bit of trouble for AMD, plenty of companies are offering some pretty good variations of the card.
Today we'll have a look at what ZOTAC have done with it and see if it's able to stand out from the competition. But before we check out the water cooling and the card, let's take the time to have a look at the package and see what ZOTAC have included.
