Inno3D isn't stopping with the GTX 780 iChill HerculeZ 2000 as its custom design offering, the company showed off an even bigger iChill HerculeZ 3000 variant at Computex. Pictured below, the card uses the bigger triple-fan VGA cooler found on some of its previous-generation graphics cards, with a few touch-ups. The dual-slot cooler uses two aluminum fin stacks that draw heat from the GPU, which are ventilated by a trio of 92 mm fans. Users have the flexibility of detaching the fans by simply turning a few thumb-screws, to clean the underlying heatsink. The cooler sits on top of an NVIDIA reference design PCB, and there are no components on the reverse side that need cooling, but Inno3D dropped in a backplate anyway. The company didn't disclose clock speeds.
