GeForce GF100 board pictures - already water-cooled
nVidia showcased water-cooled 3Way SLI. The impressive part was that the whole setup was cooled with a dual 120mm radiator
nVidia showed several systems equipped with GF100 prototype boards. To us, the most interesting thing about GF100 is the fact that nVidia opened up towards cooling manufacturers, enabling them to be ready for GF100 when it finally rolls out. We saw several water blocks from the usual and not-so-usual suspects. During the GF100 Deep Dive Day, GF100 3Way-SLI system came with water-blocks for an all-water cooled gaming experience. The system was as quiet as a mouse but again, we would like to see those prototype blocks on the cooler.The system from up and close reveals naked fans and a heatsink that spans across the PCB.
The good news is that nVidia finally decided to follow AMD's lead and use GT200-like mounting zone for the coolers. This means if you have an after-market GT200 cooler, it might work with GF100 boards, just as the GT200-based GPU blocks worked on the prototype system.Triple GF100 SLI setup reveals six DVI connectors. nVidia decided to stay conservative and not push the new standards.
Looking at the backside of the boards, we can see that nVidia is definitely sticking with a conventional dual-DVI setup for now.
