    Default Koolance VID-NX295s (GTX 295)

    Okay so i'd like to share my experience installing a Koolance VID-NX295s waterblock to the new GTX295 Single PCB

    Anyway recently replaced my card for a GTX295 and got myself a Koolance waterblock this thing appeared on my desk yesterday evening when i returned from work....enjoy !









    Contents were simple...The block, Thermal Pad screws and washers and the back plate...No Installation guide...its on the Koolance website you need to download from there

    Used my own thermal compound



    The provided Koolance Thermal Pad...this is the contact surface, very nice, soft and fabric feel

    Temps presently is 44c per block...i recorded this temps whilst running LinX (ambient 28c) (case temp 51c) so i would expect a few degrees off the 44c on idle.
    Previously on the factory heatsink they were idling on 75c per block
    I've yet to try the load temps

    Rivatuner or Precision. I prefer Precision. Easy to use and easy to OC, plus easy to set-up profiles for specific settings.

    Btw---congrats and it looks awe-some. Is it on it's own loop or intermixed with the CPU loop?

    LOL.....a WC pro don't need instruction.....just kidding!
    Nice block and card, they are massive. It's look like almost 14" long, damn almost the same width as the laptop. I guest the lenght since they moved to a single PCB.

    Bully, just curious...ATI are going to release 58xx cards by the end of September and G300 is around corner as well.

    Why don't you wait before you purchase 295?

    I heard 58xx cards are ready to be released for awhile now but ATI just holding back so they can polish the driver.

    One story I would like to hear is the one about the application of Diamond "paste".

    Is it really so much more difficult to apply?

    That is a tasty looking setup....once built is it a single slot solution? (if you fit a different end plate)

    I recently read that yield on the new 300 series chips has so far been <2% so I totally understand why you did not wait, the price of 300 will be high and I expect delays.

    Really?
    So ATI will win again in this upcoming battle.

    I can get a Powercolor 4890 reference card of course for under $190CDN after rebates. Well price war are going to happen in next couple weeks. Keep your eyes peel fellas

    If Nvidia don't have a competeitor for the new Ati cards then I can't help feeling that prices will stay high on the new ones until they do....that is not to say that existing cards won't drop some in price

    That is a tasty looking setup....once built is it a single slot solution? (if you fit a different end plate)

    I recently read that yield on the new 300 series chips has so far been <2% so I totally understand why you did not wait, the price of 300 will be high and I expect delays.
    Yeah the IC7 is slightly more sticky and a much stiffer paste in comparison to MX2 and artic silver
    in terms of performance i am unable to comment as the last time i use the MX2 was on a total different setup ...

    i was very very reluctant actually to buy the GTX295 but the 4870x2 had some problems and if i had to RMA it i had to wait another 2 months without any video card. So i gave up and told myself that this GTX295 has to last at least 1 year before my next card and at present the 5870 is gonna cost a bomb until GT300 arrives and when it does its gonne take at least another couple of months before GTX395 comes then another 1-2months for the waterblocks to be created so i just went for this sinful card!!!
