BFG is reaching out to gamers and PC enthusiasts this month with new products that promise speed and efficiency. First up is a pair of maintenance-free, self-contained liquid-cooled Nvidia GeForce graphics cards; the GTX 285 H2O+ and the GTX 295 H2OC. Both cards feature BFG’s new ThermoIntelligence Advance Cooling Solution, which in other words means you can enjoy the benefits of water cooling without the hassle of installing a custom solution.
The new cards have been developed together with CoolIT Systems, are easy to install right out of the box and never need refilling or additional components. They're also factory overclocked and can run using three different speed settings – Auto, Quiet, and Maximum – to control acoustics and performance. The benefit, according to BFG, is up to 30C cooler temps
under load when pitted against standard air cooled models.
You can expect to pay dearly for these cards, though. BFG’s GTX 295 H2OC currently sells for $850 on Newegg and will be joined by the GTX 285 H2O+ tomorrow at a still unknown price.
The company also announced the EX-1000
recently, a 1,000 watt modular power supply certified with the 80 PLUS Bronze rating, which indicates an efficiency of 80% or greater under real-world loads. The EX-1000 comes with a lifetime warranty, 24/7 tech support and is available now exclusively at Best Buy for $199.99.
