Inno3D Working on GTX Titan With HerculeZ Tri-Fan Cooler

Inno3D is preparing another GTX Titan, this one also non-reference. It is built with the HerculeZ 3000 cooler, which carries three PWM fans and has a very hefty appearance. The cooler carries five copper heatpipes that transfer heat to a dense aluminum fin array. The heat is transferred to the heatpipes through a copper base.

Underneath the cooler, the card itself is an ordinary GTX Titan, although overclocked to a boost clock speed of an impressive 927 MHz. While the boost clock's speed remains unknown, we can safely assume that it is near the GHz mark or maybe even beyond. The memory speed is still at reference speeds of 6,008 MHz.

The image that WCCF Tech managed to get just before the official Weibo page was removed also clearly shows an NDA of May 20, 2013. This could be a hint of a release date and when we may see other non-reference Titan cards, although this is only speculation.

    I don't usually call things ugly but....
  • sumoncpi
    I am do not use this

    that cooler looks horrible, although its unlikely i will ever buy a titan, if i did i would stick to a reference cooler.

    actually the cooler works great, the best one i owned. runs at 49-50 deg C most of the time, and 55 on a hot day playing bf3 on ultra.

    the one i own is not orange though and i think it looks nice, dont like the blue pcb though but i bought it anyway.
    had bad experience with inno3d years ago but gave them a chance again after reading several reviews with high praises. so far so good

    why is it so hard to post on news for the past few days??

    Just buy the cheapest card with the reference cooler and put an Arctic Cooling cooler on it. They may be expensive but you can't beat them for noise and cooling capacity except with a water block.

    titan is one of those cards that you drool over from a distance and then buy a 7870 2gb and be happy. :)

    The titan, when waiting for the 780 is simply too darn long
