Some people asking for internal pictures so here it is! This block is the GTX 480, the 470 is similar.
The base it made out of nickel plated C110 Copper, and top plate is delrin.
Here is the outside of the waterblock:
If you take off the top, you can see the internals, and the integrated heatpipe to the VRMs
A closer look at the internal GPU area, and the 06.mm thin pin matrix which allows good heat transfer.
Here is the back of the block, all the memory are cooled, and once again you can see the smoothness of the block where it contacts the memory and GPU.
Lastly we have the inside of the top delrin piece, here you can see the flowpath, and separator.
Of course none of this would matter if we didn't have good performance, so here are load performance numbers for both the GTX 480/470: GTX 470
Load Heatsink: 83c
Load Waterblock: 38c GTX 480
Load Heatsink: 95c
Load Waterblock: 49c
