Inno3D iChill Black Edition GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card Pictured

Inno3D is ready with a new high-end graphics card based on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 580 graphics processor, which comes with a factory-fitted water cooling system. Dubbed the iChill Black Series GTX 580, the card makes use of a pre-fitted water-cooling loop consisting of a full-coverage water block, and tubing leading up to a pump/reservoir/radiator unit that uses one 120 mm fan. The loop can be detached at the card's end. The iChill card is bound to feature some factory-overclocked speeds, coupled with quite some headroom courtesy water-cooling. Its exact pricing and availability are not known. Based on the 40 nm GF110 GPU, the GeForce GTX 580 is NVIDIA's fastest GPU, it features of 512 CUDA cores, and 1536 MB of memory over a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface.

They work better them most people give them credit for, be its not as good as real water cooling.

They somehow found a way to make a long card even longer.

Kudos.

That's my gripe. The performance of the Coolit Units, bought on thier own, doesn't justify the cost, but I'm really assuming that this cooler doesn't add too much to the cost of the card.


Nevermind Barry was supposed to let me know when the 5-series coolers were supposed to come out, and failed to, and my order for replacement fans...well..they sent me 2 fans they knew wouldn't work, and could potentially kill my Coolit product, instead of telling me they could not fill my order.

I must admit, that was asome time ago, but it's left a sour taste in my mouth when it comes to Coolit. When you order replacement parts, you should only ever be sent parts that work, not parts that could cause further problems, nevermind charging a customer for those parts.

And yes, they would not allow me to send the fans back, and would not give me a full refund for the parts that were completely useless to me.

I wonder if this could fit in a single slot for 7 way folding epicness? Dunno what you'd do with the fans, but meh :P

if i were in the market for a gtx 580 i would give this some serious thought. my only gripe would be that the cooling lines arent long enough - it would interfere with where i have my h50 lol

this would be amazing with a slightly better quality waterblock, and 240x120mm radiator, then you could just about go sky high with your GTX580.

Under water I'm guessing theyre capable of 950+mhz.

Dual-PSU?

Just bolt everything together and hide it inside your case

Let's face it, the H50 was a success. Many people have been wanting to see something like this for graphics cards for some time now. I'd like to see it on mid-range cards as well. Not everyone has the time to build a water loop from scratch, so this is very appealing to mainstream gamers and novice overclockers.

I believe we have some woman from CoolIT here that joined a few months ago to rave about their new customer support system and crap, then never showed up again (typical). Their quality control is also nonexistent, so I'm with you on the CoolIT hate.

Why thank Corsair? Coolit has been making these types of coolers years before Corsair bought a product form another company and slapped their name on it.

You mean the CoolIT Domino units that were notorious for exploding?
