Posted on Friday, Oct 13 2006 @ 01:28 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Corsair released the Nautilus GPU water blocks supporting the latest NVIDIA GeForce based graphics cards in both single and dual SLI configurations. The Corsair Nautilus GPU water blocks are the perfect accessory for the Corsair Nautilus500 external liquid cooling system, and other third party liquid cooling solutions that utilize 3/8” tubing.

The Corsair Nautilus GPU water block is designed to provide maximum cooling for NVIDIA GeForce7800, 7900 GT/GTX and 7950 GT series video cards in both single and SLI configuration. Constructed with a pure solid copper base and RAM cooling pad mounting points design, the Nautilus dual GPU water blocks provide optimum cooling directly on the GPU and the video RAM. This additional cooling allows for significant GPU overclocking. The compact low profile block features a single inlet and outlet for cooling two video cards that reduces the tubing lengths and improves the flow characteristics of the water cooling sub-system.

Designed for enthusiasts, the new Nautilus GPU water block brings up to 40% more GPU cooling efficiency when paired with the Nautilus 500 water cooling unit, allowing for significant overclocking. While overclocking is not guaranteed by any one component, the degree of system overclock generally correlates with the degree of component cooling.

The Corsair part number for the single Nautilus GPU block is CWC100-NGPU, and the part number for the dual pack is CWC100-NGPUDUAL. The Nautilus GPU water block is currently available through Corsair’s authorized distributors, resellers and retailers worldwide. The estimated street price is US$99.99 for the single version and US$199.99 for the dual version.
