Poseidon look at...

I wish this thing came out... Me being a real lazy ass, I didn't feel like
designing my own one, but now I guess I have to cuz my volt modded GF3 just
runs way too hot. Anyway, 3DPower had the world all excited briefly, but unfortunately
the Poseidon never came out...
The Ultimate in Water-Cooling for your GeForce3/GeForce3 Ti500 reference
products is what the manufacturer claimed, but unfortunately we may never know
just how good this little gem may have been. To be completely honest, I think
it is about time to address the tons of e-mails that I get asking about what
kind of perks reviewers get from working so close with the industry's leading
manufacturers. Well, one example of a perk is this little gem pictured below.
Originally, this product was introduced by me to one of our associates at a
certain company. After convincing them that this product would be a great product
for the hardcore gamer/overclocker in all of us, they agreed to give development
a shot. I approached a 3rd party manufacturer with the intention of pushing
this product out within a two to three month time frame. Now if any of you out
there are familiar with the technology industry, you are well aware that this
is a tall order. Most prototype development can take up to a full calendar year
before it is shipped to retail. Needless to say, I worked closely with the 3rd
party to get the design perfect. This process involved several testing stages
and redesigns. Despite the pressure and a couple of major setbacks, we delivered
the product to the company in time for day two of COMDEX 2001. We had pulled
it off! The first GPU/RAM Block to be mass manufactured and distributed by a
known retail company to the retail market, or so we had thought.
