Galaxy Ready with GeForce GTX 980 Ti HOF Liquid Cooled Edition

Galaxy is done whitewashing the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, with the development of its HOF (hall of fame) LCE graphics card. The card features an all-white custom PCB, with a 16-phase VRM that draws power from three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, which interestingly, are located along the back of the card, rather than the top of it. The star attraction here is a full-coverage water block designed by Bitspower. The block features an opaque white top, and a white metal back-plate. This card will be sold through Galaxy's various sub-brands (such as Galax and KFA2), when it hits the shelves later this month. The company did not disclose clock speeds or pricing.

I thought it's a Calliope?


In several stories, Calliope is depicted as some kind of zenith of musical instrument (although unwieldy and kinda snobby). It's befitting with 'Hall of Fame' theme.

Well the DVI port blew the design in da Trash ! When will videocard makers realize, we dont need taht anymore, it interfeeres with a watercooling card.
It would have been a nice card, but i said to myself i will never buy a DVI card ever again, esspecially when i want to watercool it !

The company is Galaxy (Galaxy Microsystems). They market cards as under the GALAX and KFA2 nameplates, but just to confuse the issue they sell both SSDs and PSUs as Galaxy.

They are Galax however they are still using the KFA2 name in Europe ATM because the is a trademark dispute over the Galax name, unsure if they are still using the old Galaxy name in the US.

Very good water block on indecent costly card .The cost is not justified!
Cut error procesor, waste from the production of X TITAN old familiar processor architecture maxwell since the GTX 750 is the 28nm in the current low-cost manufacturing process with no new !!! TEHNOLOGIY, some software is upgraded and that's all here what they sold as a new game hay end product << !!!! Please stop throwing sand in the eyes of customers. Only if they would donate 4 of them, would be used by me.:ohwell::shadedshu:

This was the perfect response and I laughed way harder than I should have. I registered an account just to tell you this.

I think this is a fantastic looking card and exactly what I personally would like in a high end performance card. A standard fitted waterblock on these heavy overclocking edition cards makes it simpler to pickup and plug into a system and keep it cool under extreme clocking. I would not actually mind building a rig with the white and black color scheme in mind and grabbing a couple of these!!!

corrected... (i have a wc'ed 290 ... well it doesn't hinder the block at all ... (wait ... even on that HOF nothing hinder the block and surely not the DVI hub ...: nothing need cooling in that area and even without the DVI hub the block will always stop at the same place as it stops now: HDMI/DP port are still in the place )

and you realize some customer still have DVI/HDMI monitor that works more than fine ... ok i could use a DP to DVI active adapter but ...

if you where talking about VGA i would understand but DVI is still good even in the time being (ok DP and HDMI are be... wait ... DP is better yep but most of the affordable monitor, like my 1ms Philips use HDMI DVI VGA... and god i would prefer a DP over a VGA but it still has a DVI)

Maybe it's just me, but I cant trust a water-cooled GPU from the factory.
I would rather do it myself and make sure everything spread/sits perfectly.
I like the idea of a pre-water-cooled GPU, I am sure it would appeal to the average gamer, but in the end, how is the average person meant to install this without adding the tubing, the radiator, water-flow meters, pumps etc etc. And, if the average person IS able to do all that, why not just slap on the water-block himself and be SURE it is all done properly?
