PNY Technologies, Inc. ("PNY"), a global leader in flash memory cards, USB flash drives, solid state drives, High Speed HDMI cables, computer memory upgrade modules, as well as consumer and professional graphics cards, today announced the debut of an innovative product line of Liquid Cooled Graphics Cards. PNY's new Liquid Cooled Graphics solution will be showcased at E3 2011 from now until June 9th.

PNY and Asetek, a leader in CPU thermal management, have combined forces to launch a high-end Liquid Cooled Graphics solution geared towards gaming enthusiasts. Consumers will receive a fully integrated XLR8 GeForce GTX liquid cooled graphics system, with a combination GPU/CPU cooling version available as well. Engineered with a closed loop system, and built with an Asetek sealed water cooler already attached, the PNY design offers consumers an out-of-the-box ready, simple to install and reliable product.



This new system delivers significant benefits, with up to 30% cooler temperatures, quieter acoustics, and faster performance than the standard reference designed NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. With increased overclocking headroom versus air cooled, the liquid keeps overall temperatures low to provide better performance for gamers. Liquid Cooled also generates less heat -- for a 30° C difference in temperature -- and your PC parts are protected due to lower exposure to hot temperatures. Additionally, less noise is produced as fans aren't running at maximum speed to compensate for the heat. Lower acoustics means a quieter gaming environment for more gaming concentration and the option for gamers to not have to use headphones to mask noise levels. The overall advantage is extreme performance and higher frame rates without the heat.

PNY's Liquid Cooled system is on display at the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) 2011, taking place now through June 9th at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA. Attendees will have the opportunity to take a sneak peak of PNY's Liquid Cooled Graphics at work in the Creative Labs, Inc. booth #5638, located in the West Exhibit Hall.

"Together with Asetek, PNY will redefine the way gamers build and upgrade their PC systems," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, PC components for PNY. "With a design that outperforms current equivalent air cooled models, this simple all-in-one solution will resonate deeply with gamers looking for a powerful yet affordable option. With tens of thousands of gamers already flocking to E3, there's no better place to launch this product than the world's premiere show for new technologies in computer gaming products."

"PNY's Liquid Cooled Graphics solutions deliver better performance, temperatures and acoustics to gamers with the reliability and ease of installation inherent in Asetek sealed liquid cooling," said Adrian Hodgson, marketing manager at Asetek. "We're thrilled to give E3 attendees the first chance to see these products in action."

For a limited time only, PNY is offering consumers a pre-order promotional launch bundle. With the purchase of a Liquid Cooled GTX 580 on PNY.com, consumers will receive over $100 worth of bonus PNY gear: a 16ft HDMI Mini to HDMI Cable, a custom-built PNY 8GB 'Liquid Cooled' USB Flash Drive, and a 'Liquid Cooled' logo T-shirt. This bundle is available for a limited time only and only on PNY.com.

Pricing:
  • XLR8 Liquid Cooled GTX 580: MSRP is US $579.99
  • XLR8 Liquid Cooled GTX 580 with CPU Cooling: MSRP is US $649.99

So is that single 120mm rad and fan going to cool both the gpu and cpu?
I don't know how well that will perform...

The video card still has its own fan and the block design must have some sort of heatsink fins to take advantage of that

The price is a bit insane though it does includes the graphic card... The only problem here that i see is that when you'll change a graphic card (and which you'll do rather quickly if you're enthusiast), you'll also have to get a replacement for CPU cooling. Which is a bit inconvenient.

Come on, Asetek. Cut the CPU out of the loop and sell something like this as a universal aftermarket GPU cooler so we don't have to mod H50s and H70s etc.

TheJesus you nailed that one on the head.

Would also be nice to run the cooling pipes out of the back of the pc and mount the radiator on the outside of the pc of then hook it up to a real external cooling system.

Less clutter inside the box.

Generic sweetspot heatsink:
The placing of the gpu chip could be a major problem for a generic part unless the whole heatsink underside touching a gpu chip is one big sweet spot.
ie: never mind where the gpu chip is just add TIM on gpu and mount and it should work.

This could then work wonders for current 2x gpu's on 1 card or future 4x gpu's on 1 card.

Mounting issues:
Problem could be mounting screws / holes as each card has it's own placing so would need to be a generic clip on or multi screw hole and this holes can interfere with the cooling of the heatsink you get the idea.

Nothing design wise that a 3 year old child with 2 brain cells can not compensate for and design around.

Alternatively:
I presume one could buy some torx tools to remove the cooling system from this and place it in your next "most likely nvidia to nvidia upgrade" so it could work if the gpu chip is in the same place.

Yeah, I know it would be difficult to make it totally universal, but if they can do it for regular heatsinks they can do it for a liquid loop. Just don't use full-coverage blocks, instead use just a GPU block with various mounting hardware for different GPUs and then a heatsink or set of heatsinks for the rest of the card. Just like how regular aftermarket GPU coolers are sold.
I think they did,
" Pricing:
•XLR8 Liquid Cooled GTX 580: MSRP is US $579.99
•XLR8 Liquid Cooled GTX 580 with CPU Cooling: MSRP is US $649.99"
Alright, I guess they do have one with the CPU cut out of the loop, but they still need to sell the cooler separately.
