German company Watercool eK has just launched the new HEATKILLER GPU-X, on its official website. This is a very good water cooling block that takes care of the GPU, but it also handles the heat from the memory chips.
The water block is made of high-purity electrolytic copper and stainless steel. The terminal block is made of quality POM.
In addition to the graphics processor and the memory chips, cooling is provided for the voltage regulators.
The internal water channels are specially designed to keep the flow resistance very low. Large internal water channels also lead to a lower weight of the water block.
The user will also receive thermal pads that are pre-cut to fit their specific location.
The total weight is almost 1 kg and the design is specifically developed to fit Nvidia
’s reference PCB. That’s around 2.2 pounds in imperial.
Pricing stands at 130 USD and deliveries will start on May 7th 2012.
This means almost 99 EUR for the European customers and we hope the company will not overcharge them like non-European companies always do.
