Oh those wacky Colorful engineers. This is one of their two versions of the GTX 680:

No doubt that card requires a horizontal mobo

 

or a trip to the hardware store to construct a support for it. I wonder how much all that yields temp wise over a twin-frozr type cooler?

when it gets to this point, why not watercool?

 

its interesting as an engineering feat, but its practicality is laughable

I'm pretty sure it's more intended as eye-candy than for it's performance. Kinda like Cold Cathodes, absolutely useless. But people buy them for the looks.

 

While they're at it, why don't they strap a Harley on the side and clamp a turbine or two underneath it.. FFS talk about overkill.

I am not sure, but I think that is how they intend it. They are the bling spinners of the computer community.

 

 

This was their take on the GTX 560Ti last year:

It came with its own set of paints

The best you can do with water is ambient too...doesn't stop people from spending a lot on cooling. :P
