Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 Black Series Accelero Hybrid S is an integrated air and liquid solution in the after-market. It offers an all-in-one solution with 200% cooling performance and 9 times quieter than the stock cooler. It is also the first LCS to have an integrated active fan specifically designed to cool RAM and VR. Furthermore, it is simple to use, maintenance-free and excellent value for money.

Traditionally GPU liquid cooling is expensive and complicated and adopted by only the most technical audience, the GPU however is now one of the most power hungry and hottest components you'll find in a high-end PC and will benefit from the iChill liquid cooling system even more than CPUs.

something interesting over here...
A cooler card than other previous series, that features a back plate on almost every model , come on! 700 series really needed that backplate for real ...
also those excellent coolers from many brands like gigabyte G1 gaming cards new fans and back plate, those are needed features on 700, 600 y 500 series.. not now

Cards like these are pretty pointless when other air coolers handle the core with minimal noise

Those other coolers might not belong to PC Partner.
As for Inno3D's choice, the lower clocked Herculez X4, might be a little 'busy' for a lot of peoples tastes -mine included. Not a big fan of hybrid coolers , but it at least adds a chunky heatsink for the VRM, and more choice for the consumer can't be a bad thing can it?

Exactly. When I saw water cooling, I expected it to boost over 1.4 GHz.
OMG fixed yet you provided a wrong spec for the memory bandwidth, did you also have an miscommunication in your corporation :D

It has 4 GB VRAM. It's just that .5 GBs of it limps along at a much slower speed. It's still faster than shifting some of the load to system RAM though I think.


Will they never let me live this down?
