The MSI GTX 480 Hydrogen


Showcased back at Computex, MSI has now officially announced its water cooled GTX 480, the GTX 480 Hydrogen. Featuring high-quality copper water block, stock clocks and an impressive overclocking potential, this card looks like a real catch for those with decent water cooling systems.

As noted, the card is at reference clocks, so you are looking at 700MHz GPU clock, 1401MHz for shaders and 3696MHz for 1536MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 384-bit memory interface. MSI also used Military Class components like Hi-c CAP, Solid State Chokes and Solid Capacitors, and it features support for Nvidia 3-way SLI, PhysX, CUDA, 3D Vision Surround. It features two DVI and one mini-HDMI outputs.

The Hydrogen water block weighs in at 830g and takes up a single slot. It covers 70 percent of the PCB and features 0.45mm micro-channel design with 1/4" threads. According to MSI, this is enough to keep the temps up to 24 degrees Celsius lower than on the reference card. Of course, such water-cooled cards are dependent on the water cooling system, which plays a key role.

The card is already listed with a lowest price set at €541,79. You can find it here.
