Inno3D Readies iChill HerculeZ Cooler for GTX TITAN-Z

For those not sold on the looks or performance of NVIDIA's reference cooler for its GeForce GTX TITAN-Z graphics card, Inno3D is readying an iChill HerculeZ air cooler for the card. Pictured below, the cooler consists of a densely packed aluminium fin stack shared by two bases and their heat pipes. A base plate is in charge of cooling the memory, VRM, and bridge chip. With restrictions in place for coming up with custom-design variants of the GTX TITAN-Z, barring those with factory-fitted water blocks, Inno3D could take GIGABYTE's route in including its cooler with a reference-design board, and instructions for end-users replace the cooler by themselves. NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN-Z is expected to hit stores on Tuesday, the 29th of April, 2014; prices start at US $2999.

Would be nice if it's a dual slot.

any time i read Titan-Z i pronounce it Titanzee .... chimpanzee made gpu?
nah enough stupidity from me ...

by the look of it it should be a triple slot, even with the shroud and fans it looks thicker than a Prolimatech MK-13 who is triple slot without the fan
i doubt a double slot air cooler would be effective unless its a hybrid cooler... but Titan-Z buyer (?) will not settle for a air cooler if they don't want it triple slot

The reference Titan Z is triple slot aswell, and the iChill Coolers never been dual slot.

Dual slot is a design from the past anyways, time to head forward.

actually ichill coolers are always considered to be "2.5 slots" since they aren't quite 3-slots yet, but a bit over 2.
