ZOTAC Unveils Water-Cooling Solutions

ZOTAC International, a leading innovator and the world’s largest channel manufacturer of graphics cards, motherboards and mini-PCs, today unveils two new water-cooling solutions – the GeForce GTX 580 Infinity Edition and ZOTAC Omni for gamers that demand a water-cooled graphics card or want to upgrade their existing graphics card with water-cooling.

“As graphics processors become more powerful, greater cooling performance is a necessity which typically results in greater noise levels. To combat the heat and noise levels, water-cooling is an excellent solution,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director. “By equipping the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 580 Infinity Edition with a water-cooler, we were able to reduce temperatures by over 25-percent and produce lower noise levels.”

Gamers with existing ZOTAC GeForce GTX 580, GTX 570 and GTX 480 graphics card can opt for the ZOTAC Omni water-cooling upgrade kit. The ZOTAC Omni kit includes the self-contained water-cooling solution and everything a gamer needs to water-cool reference-design GeForce GTX 580, 570 and 480 graphics cards.

It’s time to play with the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 580 Infinity Edition and Omni water-cooling upgrade.

Can a single 120 rad cool a 580, let alone a 480, efficiently?

I've been wondering if someone was going to come along and do to GPU cooling what the Corsair H50 did to CPU cooling.

Now I see why CoolIt limited their own sales....must be something to be said for making the product for others rather than keeping the sales in house;)

quite interested in this solution. Clearly it wont match the dedicated loops of more expensive set ups, but it should certainly be a good balance between performance and quiet operation. If this is a sub $100 bit of kit, I will probably take the plunge. Especially after having to send my gigabyte 580 back do to a busted fan. Paired with something like the corsair H50 or the antec kits, you'll get pretty solid performance out of rather small cases as well!

if some heat pipes and fins can, its safe to say a small rad can.....:wtf:

yes, absolutely. And for the record a 480 put out more heat than a 580.

I like the idea. Its a step in the right direct for making this worth something. I'm feeling like a completely closed loop water cooled gaming rig now.

Indeed, which is what he inferred in his sentence. See the 'let alone' part?

lol, so think rad (it will be not a surprise if it`s made of aluminum:roll:) pump is covering all rad, only one fan ~2000prm does it work properly wo overheat in 2D? :roll::laugh: i think in 3d it will burst up:laugh:

K, now they just need to make it $50 and add 560 Ti support.

but pump in h50 is a bit powerful, and 580 tdp is much bigger

I know, but if the h50 also wasn't even designed for GPUs. I imagine something similar that is designed for GPUs will do just fine even on a 580 or 480

smth like this is pretty cool, but THIS..here rad is thinker than in h50 and also we have power system or supply system(sorry because i don`t know how to translate this from russian:() and it give us more tdp, so here we`ve got around 250watts(in stock, i don`t know how many when the card is overclocked) of heat and i don`t think that such kind of rad will cool it properly:)
