Top performance in the graphics card segment is still being bought with equally high levels of heat development. Because only if the clock screw turned to the stop and the calculation units are used to the last segment, the decisive advantage over the competing products can be achieved. Smaller structure widths and more efficient layouts can limit this problem, but not completely eliminate it. As expected, the next generation will also be required to the max.
The problem is exacerbated by its own overclocking, because the temperatures can reach critical levels. In short: If you also want a low volume in game mode or even while playing Benchen and possibly want to simultaneously turn the clock, you can hardly avoid a water cooling system. In addition to the usual components (radiator, pump, expansion tank) is of course a matching cooler for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti or GTX Titan Black necessary - as this model of the German quality manufacturer aqua computer ..
The kryographics replaces the aquagraFX or aquagrATIx, which has been successful and popular for nine years, retains its advantages, but has been optimized especially with regard to the flow behavior. For example, the new Delrin terminal has a much larger cross-section and therefore lower flow resistance. It is not compatible with the aquagraFX series, but, like the old connection terminal, it has two G1 / 4-inch ports on both sides, with the unused threads being closed with the two enclosed screw plugs.
The actual heat sink of the kryographics is a full-block design that covers all the heat-intensive parts of the graphics card. The high-purity and additionally nickel-plated copper of the 10 mm thick base is highly polished at the contact points to GPU, memory chips and voltage transformers to ensure optimum heat transfer. In addition, an excellent thermal pad is included in the scope of voltage regulation.
On the other side of the copper bottom, besides the area of the GPU and the RAM, the water also flows through the area of the high-flow rate voltage transducers, which is especially important for the ambitious overclocking of not insignificant importance. Directly above the graphics chip, the CNC milled copper plate has a structure of many very small channels, which significantly increases the heat absorption area of the GPU.
Once again, aqua computer uses stainless steel for the lid of the kryographics, which convinces because of its material properties and looks very classy. In addition, the top comes up with a chic laser engraving. Thanks to integrated spacers, the water cooler is still very simple and, above all, safe to install. The sleek, flat design makes it easy to combine multiple graphics cards in a SLI harness, which requires optional kryoconnect connector kits.
Hints:For integration into the cooling circuit, connections are required that are not included in the delivery. Also separately is to acquire thermal paste, which is necessary to establish contact between the cooler and graphics card. In addition, make sure that the cooler is only suitable for NVIDIA graphics cards of the type GeForce GTX 780 Ti and GTX Titan Black in the reference design! The original cooler must be removed before installation, which invalidates the manufacturer's warranty!
