Gigabyte to Bundle WindForce 450W on Select GTX Titans

Gigabyte’s rather impressive looking WindForce 450 W cooler was formally unveiled in April during the company’s “New Idea” Tech Tour, and since then, the tri-fan GPU cooler has been seen on a GTX 680,  GTX 770 and the GTX Titan. Since Nvidia currently restricts companies from altering the latter card’s reference cooler, Gigabyte plans to circumvent this by bundling the WindForce 450 W cooler as a “DIY upgrade with select batches of reference design GTX Titans.”

The bundle will retain the GV-NTITAN-6GDB codename and will include instructions on how users can replace Nvidia’s cooler without affecting warranty coverage.

    LOL, BRILLIANT strategy. tho the reference cooler is still better looking.
    however, if the bundle package means that I DON'T void the warranty by taking the reference cooler off, this would be awesome for people with custom water loops and whatnot

    I really do not understand why Nvidia is so restrictive on some things like making all of the Titan GPU's have the same exact cooler seems silly and petty. Not that I would ever spend the kind of money it would take to buy a Titan in the first place it is just way way to much money for a single card at least for me.

    The major benefit in the 3rd party cooler on the titans is the price savings; Which is lost if they are selling 2x coolers with each unit. I guess titan customers don't care about savings though. I'll shut up now.
