Aqua Computer Announces Kryographics TITAN X Pascal Water Block

German-based liquid cooling specialist Aqua Computer offers its kryographics Pascal for Nvidia TITAN X as of now. Like the block for the GTX 1080/1070 card, the TITAN X variant also features a jet plate above the GPU area to provide an outstanding cooling performance. A bypass channel after the GPU helps to reduce the flow resistance and allows water to flow directly above most hotspots on the graphics card.

The kryographics Pascal for NVIDIA TITAN X is completely CNC machined in Aqua Computers own production facilities in Germany. The base is made of electrolytic copper with a thickness of 10 mm. A precise manufacturing allows using thermal grease not only for the GPU but also for the RAM. This ensures the best possible connection between the graphics card and cooler. For the voltage regulators a thermal pad is included in the scope of supply.

Aqua Computer Announces Kryographics Water Blocks for GTX 1080 and GTX 1070

The German-based liquid cooling specialist Aqua Computer has added the water block kryographics Pascal to its portfolio. Due to an almost equal PCB it is possible to use the cooling block with the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. For the first time Aqua Computer uses a jet plate in a kryographics block. The changed channel flow reduces the already low flow resistance. The large slotted cooling structure above the GPU offers an outstanding cooling performance.

While developing the block Aqua Computer paid attention to route the cooling fluid through all important areas. A bypass channel after the GPU helps to reduce the resistance of the block and allows water to flow directly above some RAM modules. The kryographics Pascal is completely CNC machined. Production takes place in Aqua Computers own production facilities in Germany. The base is made of electrolytic copper with a thickness of 10mm. A precise manufacturing allows using thermal grease not only for the GPU but also for the RAM. This ensures the best possible connection between the graphics card and cooler. For the voltage regulators a thermal pad is included in the scope of supply.
