Inno3D fits the GTX 780 with a HerculeZ X3 Ultra Cooler

Inno3D is perhaps best known for equipping its graphics cards with the HerculeZ cooling system. The latest iteration of this is the HurculeZ 3 Ultra, which features three 90 mm PWM fans, a copper heat sink, and five heat pipes run through a 288 x 95 x 34 mm aluminum heat sink.

The cooler features a modular design that allows all three fans to be easily cleaned / replaced, a backplate to protect the PCB and prevent warping, and an “SLI optimized design” that features two side air holes for improved extra air intake.

With regards to performance, Inno3D hasn’t specified whether the graphics card features any changes to the clock rates, but has noted that it is rated for a maximum sound production of 42 dB and runs 22°C cooler than the reference GTX 780 while under load.
