The entire Waterforce unit includes an OLED panel with real-time temperature output, fan RPM control, and variable pump RPM control. When tweaked appropriately, the company states that thermal performance is improved (temperature lowered) by 42.6% over the reference air cooled GTX 980.
If you're wondering why anyone would spend $3000 on a special liquid-cooled, 3-way SLI GTX 980 setup, so were we. Here's what Gigabyte says:
“The WATERFORCE is specially designed for the gamers who dream about a silent and powerful SUPER PC. No more noise-nightmare or problem of uneven temperatures while using multiple graphics cards.”
That's not much convincing, but I suppose anyone doing extreme overclocking in a 3-way setup would get use out of the Waterforce solution. The PSU requirement is listed as 1200W minimum for the system.
Here's the system in action:
