VIA Technologies today unveiled the world’s first graphics card aimed specifically at the embedded market in the form of the VIA eH1. The new card is DX10.1 compliant and carries the ability to bring full graphics and video capability to any system that has a PCI Express slot.

For the GPU, VIA has gone with the S3 Chrome 5400E, which is widely believed to be the most power-efficient 64-bit discrete graphics solution currently available. The manufacturer has also added 512MB of DDR3 memory to the card to give it top-notch processing power. The VIA eH1 AIB also features advanced full support for DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1, while its 64-bit architecture is compatible with Open GL ES 2.0.

The card boasts of multi-stream 1080p HD video decoding and Stereoscopic 3D rendering capabilities on two displays. As a low-profile PCI Express add-in board, the eH1 is ideal for embedded applications that call for advanced graphics and video processing performance. According to VIA, the eH1 is a tailor made graphics card for the embedded industry including digital signage and advertising, POS, POI, gaming and other similar areas.

For connectivity, the eH1 graphics card has dual-link DVI and HDMI (with HDCP) output and it supports H.265 and VC-1 format support for Blu-Ray. VIA has added a three year guarantee with the card to make it all the more attractive.

“The VIA eH1 hits a real sweet spot for the embedded industry as a whole," said Daniel Wu, Vice President, VIA Embedded Platform Division, VIA Technologies, Inc. "Offering technologies like DX10.1, OpenGL/CL, plus multi-channel HD video playback on an extremely low power AIB will excite system integrators who want to bring the latest features to existing platforms."

The VIA eH1 is available to customers on request specifically for project testing purposes.

Hey there guys.

I am about to start my journey into water cooling and will be putting my fully custom loop into an Corsair 800d.

Now my question to you is. where should I put radiators and pumps etc?

My thought so far are;

360 rad in the top.

drive bay res in the drive bays (DURH!!!)

blocks obviously where they should be.

and then a pump in the bottom section to the right of the PSU.

Also thought about possibly adding a 120 rad on the exhaust fan at the back.

So......any thought or recommendations about layout guys?

This is what i would do if I could do it over.

Duel pump setup for the PMP450 and 450S

A duel 140 rad mod by LazyMan I did this and its not so tuff to do

I think Tom did a video on the air flow of the 800D, I found it. The 800D is a air flow nightmare so plan out your fans well.

What's your budget?

I'm not a fan of koolance at all. Almost dislike them as much as thermaltake but lets not go there lol.

I checked your other post. 570's get damn hot. And if you overclock the i7 and gpu that 360 rad might not be enough actualy probably wont be.

I mean if you get a thick 360 rad up there and aren't afraid to do a push pull with 3 fans outside the case then I could see it working.

But ya I like lazymans mod with the added 240 rad !

Here is Dazmodes watercooled 800D build. This is part 1 which shows how thick of a rad you can run with just a push configuration.
