    Default Thermaltake, Water and 8800GTX

    well thermaltake made a water cooler for 8800GTX
    http://www.thermaltake.com/product/C...3/cl-w0153.asp

    i wonder how much GTX and GTS differ, since i never saw any of those two, so i guess it wouldnt fit on the gts? or is it for making the cooler sound more fancy and classy.
    btw looking at the pictures and one of them ilustrates the fan taking in cold air form above and under the fan, got me wondering how a simple fan can take air from 2 directions, and seeing its above the voltage regulator i'm sure it aint too cold air under the fan

    the air movement is simple physics. the fan pushes the air inside itself through that hole towards waterblock, therefore creating a low pressure zone. air always moves from high pressure to low so the cold air ( well the air around the fan ) get inside it from whereever it can

    i assume the fan part of this cooler is for the memory? looks nice but the Maze 5 blocks are way cheap and i bet this isn't

    What is with the fan for when you go with the liquid ?
    I understand it is for cooling the memory but I my opion it is bad a design. I perfered performance than looks, I'm glad to have Koolance VID-280 than the Thermaltake.
    This one only cost $100. With this slim water block it won't take much room even in SLI setup.
