Aqua Computer released the aquagrafx GTX280 watercooling block for the GeForce GTX 280 graphics cards.
The cooler is produced from highly purified electrolysis copper and provides an extremely high cooling capacity. Due to the up to 20mm broad channels inside the block it has an extremely low flow resistance.

The copper plate of the cooler is approx. 8 mm strong and weighs approx. 660 g completely. It is CNC milled from a solid raw part of almost 2.2 kg of copper.

The GPU area is covered by an optimized cooling surface which offers around. 25% more surface than the one used until now.

The GPU, video chip, RAMs and voltage regulators are covered by the block. Altogether, 17 components on this card are cooled by the aquagrafx G200. The connections are G 1/4".
The waterblock can be preordered at Aquacomputer for 94.90EUR. The product will be available on June 25.
