HEATKILLER® IV for GTX 1080 and 1070 available


All versions of the HEATKILLER® IV for GTX 1080 and 1070 are now available, including the matching backplate.
4b1767c00acf7754d0ea2c23f14de7f9.jpg

The new water block features a slick look, high quality materials, excelent performance and offers even more: for example, it is fully compatible to NVIDIAs new SLI-HB bridge. Furthermore, we found a great new solution for illumination. We now have LED strips available that can be connected directly to the LED port of the graphics card. Not only is this reducing cable routing issues, but it's also possible to control the illumination of the water block directly through NVIDIAs Geforce Experience software.

Both the water block and the backplate are compatible to all GTX 1080 Founders Edition and GTX 1070 Founders Edition cards.


Grab yours here!



Waterblocks for ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10 available

eeae5dbd51ab39dfa854c82785450047.jpg

We now offer a waterblock for the voltage regualtion modules of the ASUS ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10. As with all new waterblocks of the HEATKILLER® MB-X series, the
HEATKILLER® MB-X VRM ASUS RAMPAGE V will be available with a top made from acrylic glass. Additionally, we now also offer dark acrylic glass.

Grab yours here!



MultiPort top for HEATKILLER® Tube series

1ed5bd46ed625a737aad3828a116c77e.jpg

Answering the great demand, we now offer a matching MultiPort top for our HEATKILLER® Tube series reservoirs. It is now possible to connect the reservoir to the loop via the top. A matching stand pipe is part of the delivery scope.

Grab yours here!


HEATKILLER® IV CPU series performs greatly in recent reviews

As in previous tests, our HEATKILLER® IV performed greatly in the latest two tests. We want to share those results with you.

e444290b199c1de8149960adbb072333.jpg

The first test was from german hardware site computerbase.de . The testing staff was so enthusiastic about both the performance and the workmanship of the HEATKILLER® IV that they gave it their only buy recommendation.

read more at www.computerbase.de

The second test was done by reviewstudio.net . The HEATKILLER®IV reached top notes in this test, too, and recieved three awards.

What's next?



We are currently working on waterblocks for the Radeon RX 480 and for the new TITAN X.

Stay tuned!

Yeah, we were quicker with adding the articles than with the newsletter. Apparently biggrin.gif Yes, the acetal version fits, too. No, we will not make a waterbock for the chipset, because the preinstalled heatsinks are more than sufficient for those very small (and efficient) chips.

Absolutely love the look of those gpu blocks...! And man, just when I thought I could finally get away from the Rampage V Extreme Edition 10,you guys come out with a much nicer vrm compared to the competition.... Now I'm contemplating that incredibly expensive board again! tongue.gif

Agree prob best gpu block out there, im just waiting for the nikel version backplates for them, as my new case has been cut, and about to do a test fit in the next week or two.

Hum, I'm not sure that this approach will end satisfactory for you. As I told you guys before, we used to have problems with the subcontractors who did the plating for us, with some, it was quality issues, with others, it was reliability... It fianlly seems, we found someone who can satisfy our quality demands, stay within the given timeframe AND offer us a reasonable pricing range. So, right now, we are testing out a bunch of layouts and procedures to see if a nickel plated backplate can be achieved. The problem is that aluminium, the material of the backplate, can not be plated with nickel. First, they need to apply a very thin copper layer onto the aluminium, which then can be plated with a first layer of dull nickel and THEN, in a third step, be plated with the high gloss nickel that we all wish for. As you can see, this is way more complicated than the usual copper-based plating, and more complicated always means more expensive for the customer, essentially. So, yeah, right now, we are trying to figure out how we can simplify this process, so we can offer the plated backplate for a reasonable price.

So, in summary, I would suggest you order the blocks as you like them regardless the backplate. You can, however, install the backplate onto the graphics card afterwards, if we find a reasonable way to offer it.

I'l just get the one you do now, no biggy hopefully by next GEN cards it will be sorted thumb.gif

Can steel be directly plated with no additional steps? I realize it is more expensive than aluminum, but it is also stronger. So perhaps because of the additional strength, you can mitigate the cost by using a thinner piece? And if it can be plated directly then it saves money on that process too which should make it comparable cost wise to an aluminum version.



I already got an answer that the Titan Pascal water block is in development, but do you have any estimate for when it might be released? biggrin.gif

Steel is not more expensive than aluminum, and in apples to apples comparison weighs about twice as much as aluminum at the same quantity. It also does not disperse heat will as aluminum.

When you have a waterblock that already weighs a few pounds, adding another 1/2 pound for a backplate isn't ideal.

Any news on the next batch of back-plates to be in stock on your shop. As typical i went to order and there out of stock... rolleyes.gif
