Inno3D Shows Triple-Slot Cooler for GTX 500 GPUs

Custom coolers for graphics cards are nothing new; almost every OEM partner to NVIDIA and AMD has its own custom cooler for the reference graphics cards put out by these companies. Custom card maker Inno3D is the latest to join this group... the manufacturer has come up with a triple-slot fansink designed specifically for NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 500 series cards.

NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 500 series, which includes the flagship GTX 580 and the GTX 570 cards, have raced to the top of the popularity charts since their release. An enthusiast’s delight, the only shortfall of these cards is perhaps the lack of heavy-duty cooling on the reference design. Inno3D has taken note of this shortfall to design its own solution - a triple-slot fansink.

Named iChill VC26, the new cooler is a cool looking apparatus with three PWM fans - two 80mm ones and a 90mm one. The smaller fans dot the centrally placed bigger one on the outside. As can be seen from the pics (courtesy: TC Magazine), the cooler is 260mm x 100m x 53 mm in size and has as many as 112 aluminum fins.

Five copper heatpipes and a copper base dissipate whatever heat is generated by the GPU quickly and efficiently. There is also a blue LED on top to light up the iChill logo. If the manufacturer’s claims are to be believed, the iChill VC26 is a wicked cooler that can keep the GPU cooler by as much as 30 degrees compare to the reference design. For enthusiasts, this directly translates into exceptional card stability and the availability of tons of overclocking space.

Inno3D has not been forthcoming on the availability or the pricing of the cooler though.

Information has been released... too late tbh.

DDOSing these companies won't make them change their minds, but it might make others think twice. I don't think they've successfully brought any site down though.

This is more confusing :confused: :blink:

I agree with Alien on a lot of what he said.

Some things are not for everyone to know about. While I agree with right and wrong not everyone else does, take extremists for example, they have a different opinion of what is acceptable to better their own belief and do not take any one elses into consideration.

It all reminds me of the quote in " A Few Good Men" where the lawyer asks for the truth and gets this reply:

Kaffee: *I want the truth!*
Col. Jessep: *You can't handle the truth!*
Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

Another type of quote that reminds me of why the leaks should not have happened is "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."

Talking about what both Alien and chudley have, I'd add that it's about the difficulty of organising a society with perfect information on the demographics to be able to ascertain the level of information that is available to them. While many learned people would be intrigued to the Wikileaks findings others may take that it react and do something that harms lives. You cannot calculate which stories are allowed to pass to who, as once it's out there then it's out and with sensitive issues this can cause huge problems. While there is benefit to the some of the information from Wikileaks it's also dangerous, I'm in no way condoning the failing released by Wikileaks I just question if they really thought about the full ramifications of the manner in which they did it especially with the media hype bringing people who would normally have never seen Dispatches or any such show into the picture. That's good for some as it gives them a better insight into the world, but for others it provides more room for a lot of "crazy" talk about things that are barely understood.

Wikileaks is said to be releasing documents from a harddrive about executives from Bank of America, and how this could even bring down "the unnamed bank" (said to be BoA) due to the level of corruption within the higher ranks. While on the surface that makes sense, let's think more about that by taking a look at the fact that the Fed bailout information was released showing what a huge chunk of money BoA recieved which is much less than Citigroup but still, then with news of an impending Wikileaks release the stock price dipped but later recovered. Bad things are known about BoA's practices such as the Merrill Lynch buyout, and it's dealings in subprime with automated systems it also owns MBNA a relatively "bad" credit company and so on. If the Wikileaks documents were about BoA and really were that damaging to the banks stock price, investors, investor relations and clients then regardless of how bad the banks practices were and it's behaviour that'd cause speculator hysteria to crush the banks liquidity and as it stands it'd be a huge problem for many business and home owners, it'd cause a bigger problem than it'd solve and be quite frankly irresponsible if the information was that damning. Give it to the regulators as they're there for a reason, a huge speculative hysterical response could have large ramifications for an economy that's only just starting to look good again.

I'm torn on the Wikileaks issue because some of what's been released is just so damn important but then on the other hand it's playing with fire, some things aren't meant to be known by those that would misuse it or gloss over what they feel are the key points and use it in their own ramblings. Yes there are problems with major systems and wars, we all know that (at least those who've thought properly about it) but there are ways to deal with certain things, although that said the shock to the world has had some good effects too. It's an issue that's all over the place and has me rambling on too.

I'll close by saying that those that are putting the pressure on for Wikileaks to be crushed aren't affected by the DDoSing of Paypal and so on, to me it looks more like an elaborate petition to show how many are angered by the way Wikileaks is being dealt with. DDoSing these sites as an act in itself achieves little if anything, but the message is there although it's obvious because people were so intrigued by the releases anyway. The debates and the talks will go on and so will the actions taken by both sides and it'll be interesting to see how it pans out. Apologies to anyone that read the entire wall, that's time in your life I can't refund!

I find it pretty funny that everyone is accusing them of DDoS'ing.

DDoS'ing requires a huge botnet of "zombie" computers. What they are doing is voluntarily flooding sites with traffic using an opensource project called LOIC......... which isn't all that effective anyway. It even gives the server's that they are attacking their IP addresses and some other info XD

DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. The fact that they haven't actually caused a denial of service might remove the title of DDoS. That they're using LOIC, shouldn't. It doesn't make a difference if it's voluntary or not, either way the site is getting a whole pile of pings it doesn't want.

I think you need to do some research.

LOIC is a bit more than a few pings!

And Visa and PayPal did get dosed.
