BFG GeForce GTX 295 and 285 self-contained liquid-cooling video cards

Aug 4, 2009

BFG Technologies have announced their latest liquid-cooling system, this time for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 and GeForce GTX 295, promising maintenance-free performance cooling.  The two cards come pre-fitted with BFG's ThermoIntelligence advanced cooling systems, with the company claiming running temperatures of up to 30-degrees centigrade cooler than standard air-cooled models.


The graphics card slots into a PCIe port as usual, while the fan, radiator and pump assembly is fitted to a fan slot at the back of your PC case.  Three different speed settings are on offer - auto, quiet and maximum - offering different balances of noise and cooling performance.

Both cards are limited in number, and will go on sale this month.  The BFG GeForce GTX 295 H2OC is available from tomorrow, August 5th, while the BFG GeForce GTX 285 H2O+ will go on sale starting August 12th.

Press Release:


Lake Forest, IL – (August 4, 2009) – BFG Technologies®, Inc., the leading North American and European supplier of advanced NVIDIA-based 3D graphics cards, power supplies, and the Phobos™ High-Performance Gaming/Home Theater System, announced today the BFG GeForce® GTX 285 H2O+™ and GeForce® GTX 295 H2OC™ graphics cards with ThermoIntelligence® Advanced Cooling Solutions—saving customers time and money by providing a high performance graphics card plus a fully assembled, self-contained liquid cooling solution right out of the box.

The BFG GeForce® GTX 285 H2O+™ and GeForce® GTX 295 H2OC™ ThermoIntelligence® Advanced Cooling Solutions are maintenance-free, self-contained liquid cooling units attached to enthusiast-grade BFG Tech graphics cards that easily install into most systems right out of the box and never need refilling or additional components. These unique solutions feature a top of the line BFG Tech graphics card plus a high-performance cooling loop designed by CoolIT Systems™ that pushes coolant across the GPU and exhausts heat directly outside of the system chassis. Three different system speed settings—Auto, Quiet, and Maximum—give total control over acoustics and performance.

“We’re very excited to be the first company to bring this type of professional grade advanced cooling solution to PC enthusiasts”, said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. “The BFG ThermoIntelligence Advanced Cooling Solutions provide customers a way to get all of the benefits of liquid cooling their graphics cards right out of the box, without having to install a separate liquid cooling system that requires assembly, filling, and challenging maintenance from time to time.”

Impressive Heat Dissipation

Both ThermoIntelligence® Advanced Cooling Solutions keep the graphics card running up to 30°C cooler under load as compared to standard air cooled models, which ensures reliable operation and longevity.

Custom Cold Plates
Both solutions feature highly efficient, custom cold plates that direct cooling liquid over vital parts of each specific graphics card to effectively absorb heat.
