Rumor: Asus Water Coolable GTX 780 Ti ROG Poseidon

A while ago, Asus came out with its GTX 770 ROG Poseidon. It seems that it was a success, because as a result, Asus is sketching a new Poseidon cooler. The Poseidon graphics cards from Asus can be cooled by air as well as by liquid. By themselves, they feature enough cooling power to be cooled solely by air, though they have threads for water cooling fittings that enable you to slap some extra cooling power on them for some over-the-top overclocking.

The new Poseidon cooler is advertised to feature two 'dust-proof' fans, as well as an LED ROG logo. They are expected to first be featured on the company's GTX 780 Ti card which would also feature an extra powerful VRM circuit.

There was no word on pricing or a release date.

    Nice concept.. Hope it's cheap.. ;)

    Depending on the price this should help newer water cooling users without having to buy an expensive water block.
    It also adds the option for those who arent sure. Good concept I would say.

    Make it have 6GB VRAM and I'll buy 2 for 1,000 bucks each. Possibly more...

    I would like to see the same on an R290X

    Very nice, but I bet it will be priced waaay out of competitive reach for a standard card and a waterblock. And it will probably be as rare and hard to find as the predecessors.

    But in principle, its a very nice move.

    Mmm, okay, that's sexy. I wouldn't buy it to upgrade from my 670, but use this as a beta and launch another card like this when you have pricing and supply under control, and I will happily buy a maxwell Posidon card.

    hope it comes out before year end!

    I am just waiting for a non stock 290X. So far I have only seen a PCB for the MSI Lightning and I am not a fan of MSI GPUs after working in a retail store and having a good percentage of them have fans go bad. Give me Asus or Sapphire.

    Define "Dust-Proof"...

    Wow how late are you guys. this has been on other websites for a week now.

    plus its a 780. not a 780Ti. and locked voltage and so on. basically its useless as you can't overclock high enough to warrant a double cooling.

    I might of gotten it if it was a Ti but eh. I will see what EVGA will do.
