Graphics card manufacturer BFG has launched a new graphics card based on NVIDIA’s powerful GeForce GTX 285 graphics core. BFG GeForce GTX 285 H2O sports two features making it different from the rest, higher clock frequencies and a water block instead of a regular air cooler. BFG claims that the water cooling will improve temperatures by up to 42 degrees compared to NVIDIA’s reference cooling. This should make room for additional overclocking, while at the same time it becomes dependent on other water cooling components. Earlier it also launched a water-cooled GeForce GTX 295.
