Product Shot 1 The Pros:Doesn't take up as much room as most high end video cards. Near silent operation. Factory overclocked.

The N280GTX OC HydroGen is an overclocked Nvidia GeForce 280 GTX with a custom single slot water cooler from MSI. Introduced in late August 2008 at COMPUTEX, the N280GTX OC HydroGen joins the MSI 280 GTX series with the highest overclock of any GTX 280 on the market.

Running at 700/2300, 50MHz faster than their air cooled factory overclocked card, the N280 GTX OC HydroGen is only approached by the dual slot BFG Tech 280 GTX H2OC clocked at 680/2450. MSI also claims that the card is cooled so well that it runs at a full 10C cooler, even during heavy loads. For more information on the GTX 280 refer to the full report.
