Looks awesome!

I was sceptical when I saw it included CPU Water cooling too! 1x 120mm fan seems far too little for 3 large heat sources! But from the review it seems to perform rather well.

Dependant on price, I may just pick up one of these!

That is impressive cooling for such a small cooling system. Awesome review frank I would buy it purely for the sweet suitcase lol

the card didn't perform wonders above and beyond the regular 4870x2 and 4850x2 but I'd say it's worth it for the mini water cooling system, I'm tempted to buy it just to check out that cooling system.

That's a damn nice looking all-in-one setup! They usually suck balls, it's nice to see someone do it right. :)

Does the CPU cooling bit really perform that well? Damn! That config really does look bad@ss!

Quick suggestion for a CrossFireX setup, use the second CPU cooler on the NB :lol:

The benchmarks looks dissapointing, I would expect more performance for the price. The Palit Revolution 4870x2 benchmarks looks crazy as hell. Too bad I can't pick up one during the holiday season.

For a card with so many extras, it would be really nice to get a pic of it installed in the test system - or if there was one such picture in the review, I missed it...

Remember you're getting a full water-cooling setup along with it though...
