Bacata informed us about the launch of Obsidian - a new VGA waterblock for GeForce 8800 GT, GTS and 9800 GTX graphics cards.
The Obsidian waterblock cools both GPU and onboard memory. It shares the same core
CPU cooling technology as the Apogee GT & GTX processors waterblocks, which are
recognized among the best performing waterblocks on the market, and uses revised
Ramcool cold plates to dissipate the heat off the memory.
Mosfet cooling is handled by passive aluminium heatsinks, specific whether they are
used with a 8800 or a 9800 graphic card.
A unique innovation in the design
comes from adjustable standoffs,
providing compatibility with all nVidia
reference design boards in the 8800
GT, GTS (G92) and 9800 GTX series.
The Obsidian waterblock is
compatible with triple SLI setups,
thanks to its low profile and
the use of new custom fittings
specially designed to link-up all
three waterblocks either in series
or in parallel.
The CNC machined C110 copper base plate is at the heart of Obsidian waterblock
Designed and optimized using Computational Fluid Dynamics, it benefits from the same
Diamond Pin Matrix technology, used in the Award winning Apogee GT & GTX.
Actually, Swiftech used the Apogee GT & GTX base plates to build the Obsidian, thus
guaranteeing the absolute best performance on the market.
The Bacata Obsidian VGA waterblock has a MSRP of 89.90EUR (excl. VAT).
