The all new N580GTX HydroGen/OC is equipped with MSI HydroGen all copper waterblock and NVIDIA top-of-the-line GeForce GTX 580 GPU. The HydroGen waterblock is MSI's industry-leading graphics card cooling solution featuring all-copper construction and micro-channel technology for faster water flow and enhanced GPU cooling. The HydroGen technology reduces operating temperatures by up to 24°C compared with the reference design, and is completely silent! When used along with the MSI Afterburner overclocking software, the GPU voltage can be increased to boost overclocking potential. Real-time monitoring for core temperature and memory usage is also supported to keep you in control of the card's running condition. Solid capacitors are used exclusively on the N580GTX HydroGen/OC, significantly increasing service life and stability as well.
MSI Fails to honor warranty
Pros: Card comes ready for water cooling.
Cons: The card failed (started to deteriorate) after 8 months, MSI refused to honor the 3 year warranty and despite requests to speak with a manager (as the card was simply in my system and I did nothing to damage it) they simply returned the card to me.
Other Thoughts: Based on the customer service alone, I'll never buy an MSI product again.

stays cool under fire
Pros: It is the best single in the world...at the moment. Runs everything smooth as ice cream. Stays at 30C compared to stock @ 56C and up.
Cons: Some cheaper cards in 2-way SLI (570s) can outperform it.
Other Thoughts: Love it!
