Inno3D Announces the First Liquid-Cooled GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Card

Inno3D announced the first GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card to ship with a factory-fitted liquid cooling solution, the iChill GTX 1060 Black. The card features the 6 GB variant of the GTX 1060, with 1,280 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and a 192-bit GDDR5 memory interface. The card combines a custom-design PCB that's identical to the one on the GTX 1060 iChill X3 card the company launched its GTX 1060 6 GB lineup with; with a factory-fitted Arctic Accelero Hybrid S AIO liquid cooling solution.

The Accelero Hybrid S features a pump-block making contact with the GPU, and a secondary-heatsink conveying heat from the memory chips and VRM; ventilated by a 70 mm fan. The block is plumbed to a 120 mm x 120 mm radiator, with an included 120 mm fan. This cooler supports factory-overclocked speeds of 1569 MHz core, 1784 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.20 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory, which are identical to those of the iChill X3. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include one each of dual-link DVI, HDMI 2.0b, and three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors. The company didn't reveal pricing.

This is more than an overkill, this is stupidity. Thing probably cost over 320$.

I don't see any kind of sense in this.

First person on TPU to buy one must resign from TPU. With near silent, over clock able air cooled customs, this is just stoopeed.

It only makes sense when gpu with this cooler cost same for manufacturer and buyers. i mean regular price. I would still not buy it because of pump noise.

Hmmm, they just want to reassure people that this will never happen again:

Personally I think anything that aides in keeping a system cool and quiet is a good thing, particularly if you live in a hot climate where the ambient temperature can be 30C or more with 100% humidity in Summer.

I would disagree with comments saying this is a complete waste. If someone wishes to spend a little bit extra for his GPU, why not, its still cheaper compared to 1070. Besides AIO has its benefits - stable clock, higher potential overclock capability, low temps and longer life-span of your GPU.

if they have bump the stock clock to 2.0ghz then ill take one. otherwise, no need for this as the radiator needs a space

Why? the GTX1060 is so freakin cool already.

I'm sure the main benefit for most is that it'll be quiet at 100% load. I'm all about silent operation which is the reason I've put AIO coolers on many of my cards in the past. When they release a bracket for the 1060 I'll get a dirt cheap Corsair AIO immediately.

If only the 1060 was ridiculously easy to overclock and it was very advantageous to do so... I would see a point in this... but things being as they are... this is shortbus material.
