Origin PC Brags About First Liquid Cooled Titan

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 18 comments

Origin PC has annouced that it will be the first company to water cool the all-new Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan.

Origin PC has been working with EK Water Blocks to make one of the most badass PCs that money can buy. It aims to make a gaming rig with up to 4 GeForce Titan cards in SLI. Presumably to prevent the overclocked cards from running too hot, Origin PC will use its "Cryogenic" liquid coolers.

Kevin Wasielewski, CEO and cofounder of Origin PC said "When NVIDIA first showed us TITAN, we were simply blown away by its single GPU performance on even the most demanding games and applications. Just wait until you see it running on an ORIGIN PC . With support of our CRYOGENIC Liquid Cooling Solution, Professional Overclocking and up to 4-WAY SLI, TITAN brings us the first true gaming supercomputer."

No word on pricing yet, but seeing as Origin PC aims to put four professionally overclocked Titan cards into a single machine, it's a safe assumption that if you need to ask, you probably can't afford it. What we do know is that the systems will be on sale starting February 21.

    Cryogenic liquid cooling? So does it require liquid nitrogen or liquid helium?

    I suspect thats little more than just a marketing name for their cooling solution. Liquid Nitrogen/Helium isnt viable for long term usage and cant be used in a conventional water loop.

    Now that Titan is exposed for just an overhyped card, let's try and keep it in the appropriate perspective, no more godly reverations and kidney selling please.

    If this is a limited run of cards why are custom PC companies getting all of them?! That's bullsh*t. I work for AT&T and we have a company wide policy stating that employees cannot buy the new iPhones/Galaxy S phones for a a few weeks so that customers get first dibs. That's how it should be. Selfish jerks.

    this card will be able to hold someone over for another year, with no competition what so ever. amd and nvidia are going back into snooze for the rest of the year apparently

    First is kind of a misnomer considering today is the first official release of Titan and I can go to Geekbox and get a water cooled Titan now. So they are one of the firsts but they are not exclusive to it on day one.

    because this card is ALL ABOUT MARKETING and hype and not about people actually buying it.

    the marketing anticipation delivered on the promise
    the benchmarks failed to deliver anything deserving of more than a $600 tag
