The first of the Shadow H2O series of reviews is the Powercolor 6990 LCS - can the waterblock be the answer to our ears prayers?

I'd just like to add that h20 added expense to one side, graphic cards with water blocks on them look very sexeh !

(Results in the oc3d reviews are still troubling me, especially when you look at same cards with better settings, where, to be fair, they really can't be slower.)

Ultra damn fast fps for sure. No quality and physx for me tho.

I actually thought it would be more expensive.

First off, nice review as always. Do love how the card has a full cover waterblock =D.

Personally I think any card that comes with a waterblock by default should have some sort of voltage tweaking so you can better exploit the extra cooling potential.

Also on the side note:

Call of Duty - Black Ops

If you're a fan of the Infinity Ward shooter then you have nothing to worry about here, or to be honest with any card. WTF
