Gigabyte Fits a GTX Titan With WindForce 3X Cooler

Image source: Hardwarezone

With the exception of EVGA's overclocked variant showcased at CEBIT, vendors have refrained from modifying the GeForce GTX Titan's reference design. Consequently, it refreshing to see the GV-NITAN-6GD-B, a GTX Titan fitted with a WindForce 3X cooler that is rated for 450 W of heat dissipation.

Hexus.net speculated that although they "weren't entirely sure on the merits of switching out from the elegant [and competent] reference design," a conjectured temperature reduction of 10°C would allow the card to run at higher frequencies and voltages, and it could be worth it for those "looking to push their Titans to the limit."

The card surfaced during a stop on the company's "New Idea" Tech Tour, and though we've yet to see any details on the card's pricing or availability, we expect it to arrive with a $50 to $100 price increase over other reference GTX Titan cards.

    This thing looks cheap.. IMHO the original cooler makes the product look much more premium.

  • If you really wanted to push your titan as much as possible on a more long-term basis, you'd use water-cooling. I know some people are scared off by the concept so I guess this could appeal to them, but this is probably targeting a very niche market(even smaller than titan's target market).

    You would be using liquid helium.

    I thought they were going to say that the card would cost less due to all the custom materials used in the reference cooler.

    Just a head's up - it says MSI's GeForce GTX Titan in the subtitle! (should be Gigabyte) :)

    I dunno, the stock titan looks great and doesn't seem all that loud from the vids. I don't get this one...at least when they did it with the 680s it was because it was a bit loud.
