Asus EN8800GTX 768Mb Videocard

Introduction

Not many manufacturers have used watercooling as their cooling system especially on a brand new 8800GTX. Watercooling usually needs maintenance and some work before it will work well. Asus have realised that something that sells these days are quiet systems, and one big part in a system is the videocard and its high volume fan. They have mounted a watercooling system on one of their 8800GTX cards and made it easy for you to maintain. We are going to check this system out and see if we can find any flaws or problems with it.

The product comes in a ordinary box with a picture of a girl in the middle and a Asus logo on the side. The box is covered by a plastic film though that protects it from dents and scratches. On the back of the box you can read about the cards features and specifications. The first thing I noticed when carrying the box is the weight of the product, but what can you expect with a watercooling setup and a big 8800GTX card in the box.

So what accessories do you get with the videocard? Well to start with we have several different adapters included. We got a S-Video to RGB, 2x Molex to PCI-E and one VGA to DVI adapter.

Software wise we found a couple if driver cd�s along with 3dmark2006, GTI and Ghost Recon. Pretty good software bundle if you ask me.

Wehter you read them or not you get a couple of manuals to the video card and to the watercooling setup. I would recommend you to check through the watercooling guide especially if you have never ran a H20 setup before.

Well its time to check out the card, as we can see its separated into two pieces. One is the card itself and the other is the watercooling setup. If you look close the watercooling part will be mounted in a PCI slot also so check that you have enough space for it in your computers.
