The card does come equipped with a single-slot EK Nickel Acetal waterblock and higher than stock clock rates of 1050 MHz on the core and 5700MHz (effective) on its 3GB of GDDR5 memory, but it's still hard to imagine anyone feeling ok about dropping close to US $1K on one of these, especially considering a couple of HD 7950s could be had for a similar amount of money.
