Colorful Reveals Water-Cooled iGame GeForce GTX Titan

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 10 comments

Colorful has revealed its water-cooled GTX Titan iGame.

A while back, we informed you that Colorful was working on a number of liquid-cooled GTX Titans, although few details were actually known, and the images we got were rendered with the wrong graphics cards underneath the coolers. Now, though, Colorful has revealed the actual production model, the GTX Titan iGame.

The PCB of the GTX Titan underneath is nothing other than the Nvidia's reference design. This is because Nvidia has restricted manufacturers from altering the PCB design. The only items that manufacturers can change are the clock speeds and the cooler. The only changes to the GTX Titan iGame are those as well, as it features a liquid cooling block along with higher clock speeds. The GTX Titan iGame runs at 954 MHz base clock with a boost clock of 1006 MHz.

Colorful has shown the card in two different versions: one with an acetal cover, and another with an acrylic cover. A poll will decide whether one or both of the cards will actually go into production. The cooling block on either of the models is essentially the same beyond that. They feature the same basic design and cover the GPU, the memory and the VRMs.

So far, there has been no official word on pricing or availability, but expect the cards to be priced above that of the stock GTX Titan.

    Interesting. I've only seen designs with the NVIDIA reference cooler, but I like the water cooled design.

    That's a nice looking block.
    Slightly conflicted on the reference card, though. On one hand, I think it's kinda stupid of nvidia to not let manufacturers make better cards, and on the other hand, in the case of this company which I've never heard of, I'd probably be more careful with a non-reference PCB, because I wouldn't trust their quality 100%.

    Might as well buy the stock Titan and install a better block...

    Pretty cool but I have to say to Colorful: You're a bunch of fking retards to slap on the iGame name. We're already underwhelmed with all this "i" bs and besides that Apple does not have any real correlation with serious gaming. Either the person naming this is a delusional fanboy or they think there are enough sheep building pc's to be enticed by the "i". Get a grip idiots.

    "This is because Nvidia has restricted manufacturers from altering the PCB design."
    I kinda like this.
    Most times i had no idea if a cooler would fit my GPU or not.

    It's the king of all GPUs and sadly - i can't afford it...
    But if i could, i would have loved calling one my own!

    Full cover or bust.

    Glowstick fluid + black-light cathodes + see-thru liquid cooling = win.

    Shady that manufactures cannot boost the vrm's, replace components with more premium versions, BOOST THE VOLTAGE for even higher clock speeds. The main reason for water cooling is to remove a higher wattage worth of heat. When you can't boost the voltage it's not the cooling thats limiting the overclock it is the instability of too low a voltage to get the clock any higher. Even though you have the thermal headroom to dissipate the extra heat from increased voltage nvidia doesn't allow it. Not saying the titan isn't already a great card but this water cooling with voltage increases should be able to get past 1200mhz. Screw you nvidia for locking down the voltages.

    I would prefer.
    Just saying. -CB
