How long until we see AIO full size GPU waterblocks

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Like in the title, not looking for CPU AIO style pump mounted on the gpu die, but a full AIO closed loop waterblock that covers the vrm, vram etc?

I imagine it would be a HUGE cash grab for companies like corsair, nzxt etc. Even more if they pair up with a custom pcb design from a manufacturer (AIO classifieds, kingpin, lightning, strix/rog).



What do you guys think?

There are far too many graphics cards for a full cover water block aio to really work. It might be possible with alphacool's new gpx coolers where there is a central core and having a full cover heatsink for the other components. In reality I see it as implausible for it to come out as it would be difficult to balance production costs for limited/ very specific production runs.

well.. let's say companies do it. The block cost is is around anything from 40 to 70$ depending on what material they use, and what plating they use. Then comes the Asetek pump and 120mm rad. adding VRMs to the heat need to be taken off is a huge deal as it will deem the 120mm Rad useless. so we are talking about 240mm radiator and a block and a pump .. minimum cost is around 90$ and maximum if companies use premium stuff is 160$. add 30% profit that's 208$ and let's round that to 200$ then retailers dd more 20% that's 220$ for a premium block / rad / pump to a meh 140$ product. i don't think the AIO market is ready for such a price.

Second there will be a lot of GPUs out there. if they stick to reference models only then it's OK. but there will always be people who are trying to get other cards for the better silicon. I think we are not there yet. when HBM is there i guess that's when this will happen. not on a 12" Graphics cards.

I think 120mm is enough, AMD demonstrated with 295x2 that you can sufficiently cool both the gpu core with a single 120mm.

Yes it would be a good point but sadly i cant see this catching on for quite some time or until the GPU AIO's come tot he same status and the CPU AIO's

I really hope you have a Titan X AIO solution!

if you look at any aio cpu cooler on neweegg alone, you will see that they have a very poor quality rating, pumps, leakage......

I certainly wouldn't want to go down that route! - Top end gpu costing 3 x cpu, leaking. Naah! Keep your aio biggrin.gif
