Its not abnormal to see graphic cards that's hybrid with a water cooler,we see it exactly with the Radeon R9 295x2. Having water cooled hybrid graphic cards are at an advantage because of the overclocking aspect of it all. We have a another that's about to hit the market and that's the EVGA Water cooled GeForce GTX 980 Hybrid which by the way was announced its release by EVGA yesterday.
The water cooled solution features a very intelligent wiring setup that doesn't become bothersome while being in a cluttered environment within your chassis,it has a much improved copper base heat transfer, very quiet operation with a built-in 120mm radiator and fan. There is also added cooling for the VRM and memory.
EVGA have made claims that the water-cooled GTX 980 graphic card is 36 percent cooler under heavy operation,much cooler than the stock version. The GTX 980 graphic card have a base clock of 1126 MHz (1216 boost) and a effective memory clock of 7000MHz, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980, while the water cooled Hybrid bumps the numbers up slightly with a base clock of 1291 MHz (1393 boost) and rises the memory clock ever so slightly to 7010MHz.
As an added bonus, the GTX 980 comes with EVGA's very on Precision X software. This helps to push the clocks speed all while giving users a real-time data monitoring of the GPU's health.
Anyone interested will be able to purchase the EVGA GeForce GTX Hybrid for a $649.99 complete with cooling kit already pre-installed. As a upgrade,you can get the cooler kit separately for $99.99.
