Today we present to you the aquafrax GTX295 watercooler just in time with the release of the GTX 295 graphics card. The cooler is built in a sandwich style to cool both of the cards. The intermediate level is made of Delrin, the cooling blocks are 99.9% electrolyte copper. As a special feature, one will be able to choose if water runs parallel or in series through the blocks. So you can choose between high flow and low restriction or better cooling with high flow velocity. In parallel mode you need an additional T-Connector.

GPU´s are cooled with high efficiency microstructure. Focus was also on low restriction. The threads are G 1/4 and the cooler will be available as of next week. Materials are copper and delrin.



Also available in about a week will be the block for the newer GTX 260 cards with a 55nm GPU. Both, the old and the new block will be available from aqua-computer. The block is made of 99.9% pure electrolyte copper, as are all of our new graphics card coolers. Height of the cooler is 8 mm. The result is low weight and the single slot possibility. Price will be 89.90 EUR.

Materials: copper, stainless steel, plexiglas
Threads: G1/4

lol...my thoughts exactly. It does look rather clever in it's design.

But hey Bjorn_of_Iceland...just to make your point even clearer...I still have an Aqua Computer G80 that I was not able to sell together with my old Asus 8800gtx card.

So, I sold it alone...I currently have two 3870x2s' that I don't have blocks for...next vga blocks I buy will be universal ones that I can use over and over again...or at least sell without excessive adieu to value/buying-price.

yea but wat universal block will u use for a sandwich card such as the 9800 GX2 or this GTX 295? I mean unless a GX2 block will fit n work with the 295 n future sandwich cards, then u would have to constantly buy a new center block.

Good point...I have yet to get back to having an Nvidia card...I know the gtx 295 is the latest fastest...perhaps if the local economy fairs I will be able to update to RIIE/965 and get into two 295s sli'd

Then I could have a look at the dims and come up with a universal solution.
