Bacata Obsidian VGA waterblock announced

Posted on Monday, July 28 2008 @ 16:40:14 CEST by

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 cooling efficiency. 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).
