OC3D Exclusive: Xirex GPU Waterblocks
When you hear the term water-cooling it usually conjures up names like Danger Den, EK Waterblocks, Alphacool and the like. Overclock3d.net have managed another exclusive for you, our valued readers, and it concerns the imminent appearance on the net of some pretty sweet looking gear - namely GPU waterblocks. XIREX are a small German company specialising in water-cooling and running under the auspices of distribution giant Rombus; if the sample pictures are anything to go by, they may well be onto something. From what I have been able to deduce, XIREX is made up from former employees of Alphacool.
XIREX appear to be heading down a path in pursuit of manufacturing ultra-low profile waterblocks in an effort to maximise motherboard expansion slots and increase air-flow within a typical PC case. XIREX are also striving to achieve an optimal price/performance ratio for you the potential customer.
The images that we have for you here today are for Nvidia's 8800 GTX, and reports suggest that the waterblock will have a maximum thickness of around 4 - 5mm. Anyway, enough banter...let's get to the images.
