Liquid Cooling and Overclocking the GTX 580 with Danger Den
One review that has been wahayhaaay overdue is the one you're reading now. Early December we received a new water-block to liquid cool the GeForce GTX 580.
We finally had a GTX 580 available for modification and of course we jumped on it straight away.
So in the article we'll review the Danger Den GTX 580 liquid cooling block, as an extension to that we'll show you how to install the product and then look into cooling performance and everything related.
With such good cooling, as you will notice today, you can open up a plethora of tweaking options as well. So we'll extend the article into an overclocking experience also, where we'll take the GTX 580 close to a 1 GHz core clock frequency thanks to a simple voltage tweak. And heck, we still do not pass 50 Degrees C with that overclock.
So today we'll liquid cool a GeForce GTX 580. We'll be testing what temperatures we can reach but also look at the more advanced stuff, how well the card would overclock with the much improved temperatures.
All these questions will be answered in today's article. The folks at Danger Den shipped out their most shiny nickel plated GTX 580 cooling block, and we will put that to the test. We'll have a look at the product, the installation, temperatures before and after.
Interesting stuff we think, let's have a look at what is reviewed today and then head onward into the full article.

Inno3D GeForce GTX295 iChill liquid cooled review Inno3D has released GeForce GTX 295 iChill. This card has a single GTX 295 PCB with a shiny cute single-slot waterblock. The product name will be Inno3D GeForce GTX 295 iChill Black Series and it's going to be one exclusive product to find in the stores I'm afraid, but we managed to get a sample into our lab. The GeForce GTX295 iChill edition comes pre-overclocked and is stuffed with a sweet game-bundle that will make your ears wiggle a little bit, it's a product that in most scenario's is faster than a Radeon HD 5870 as the the GTX 295 packs 480 Processing Cores and 1792MB of GDDR3 memory and has its clock frequencies set on 600 MHz on the graphics core, 1242 MHz on the shader domain and 2160 MHz on the memory.
