Gigabyte Reveals WaterForce GPU Cooling

At a tech conference, Gigabyte revealed a new product: the WaterForce water cooling system. This water cooling system is a little different from what we've seen before, as it features an external radiator/reservoir/control mechanism that is permanently hooked up to three graphics cards.

In this case, the loop is hooked up to three GTX 780 Ti cards, and the tubing appears to enter the chassis through an enlarged 5.25"… thing. The control unit also has a display on which the temperatures of each card can be seen as well as fan and pump speed. It also has a handful of controls.

We're not exactly sure what to think of this product. It seems like an unnecessarily complex form of an all-in-one water cooler, though for those who would prefer not to mess with DIY water cooling but want a little more control, it might just work. Let us know in the comments what you think.

Pricing and availability information remains unknown, though it wouldn't surprise us if this is nothing more than a prototype that will never go into full-scale production.

    I like the idea, although if i went to water cooling i think i would just make my own loop. With that said i know a lot of people might not have the time for making a loop and this seems like it would be quicker and would cool just as well.
