Sometimes we struggle to contain all of our thoughts about a particular product within the natural concentration limits of our busy readers. The XSPC Razor waterblock gives us the exact opposite problem. It's so simple, and so good at what it does, that if you're in the market for a waterblock for your GTX Titan, then this is the one you should buy.
You want more?
Well, there isn't much else we can say. It looks fantastic. There is a cleanliness to the design that we admire. Rather than go for a big logo or some flashy graphic, it's taken the minimalist 'none more black' approach. Not only does this allow your GPU to harmonise with the system rather than dominate it, but because XSPC have wrapped the all-metal construction in an acrylic cover we can see a lot of talented artists treating it as a blank canvas to customise their systems still further.
The back-plate is something that we've been crying out for, and we feel that all high-end graphics cards should come equipped with one. It's worth noting that if you're planning to stick with your air-cooled card but want the benefits of the back-plate, you'll need to source some screws as it doesn't fit to an air-cooled card with just the standard ones. It's these things that we test so you don't have to.
All in all there is little to add. It unlocks the performance of the GTX Titan to new levels, especially in higher-resolutions, whilst keeping the card cool and looking fantastic.
Sometimes simplicity is best and the XSPC Razor GTX Titan Waterblock does it all and we have to award it our OC3D Gold Award.
