    At Computex, GIGABYTE unveiled its GeForce GTX TITAN with WindForce 3X bundle (GV-NTITANOC-6GD-B), in which you get a reference-design yet factory-overclocked card, and a WindForce 3X cooling solution that you DIY install it on the card yourself. Both the card and the cooler are bundled into a single large box. The card comes factory-overclocked at 928 MHz core, 980 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory. It maintains these clocks even with the reference cooler, but it could get louder than normal, and may not be able to sustain boost states as the GPU temperature jousts with the 80°C mark. With the WindForce 3X cooler installed, the card will run quieter, and the GPU will sustain boost states better.

    The WindForce 3X cooler is complex aluminum fin-stack heatsink, in which two equally-sized aluminum fin stacks draw heat from the GPU, using five 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes. These are ventilated by a trio of 80 mm fans suspended on a metal shroud. Included in the add-on package are thermal pads for the memory and VRM, two syringes of TIM, screws, washers, an Allen key, and a large mouse-pad. GIGABYTE could price the card at a premium.

    Now, what about the GPU's warranty?

    Ha! Nice way around NVidia's rules.

    Warranty via Gigabyte, physical damage from cooler assembly not included. No NVidia warranty. Gigabyte can fix the card just like NVidia can, anyway. Where's the problem?

    the problem is that you have to void the warranty just to use what you just bought, they could have at least done something like EVGA for this one

    You don't void the warranty. Unless you damage the card installing the cooler your warranty is still 100% valid.

    Nice idea, props to Gigabyte for this.

    Although it seems almost criminal to remove that lovely reference cooler. :eek:

    Pointless bundle. Most people I've seen running Titans even on high-end water kits, are limited by insufficient power on the PCB and NOT their temperatures. Since this card is still a reference design, it's more than useless to bundle this cooler with it and then make you have to swap it out yourself.

    You don't own a REAL GPU card if it doesn't have at least FOUR 120mm fans... ;)

    Ok, i never knew that it is a new release, i bought Titan 3 or 4 days ago, and i have exactly that one and the salesman told me it is new and i am one of the first to bought it there in the center of computers, the price is little over the normal Titan by about $100, doesn't matter as long i am paying over $1000 anyway, but what concern me is, what about the performance of this card in long or daily use?
