Inno3D teases iCHiLL series with the GeForce GTX 1080

InnoVISION Multimedia Limited, a leading manufacturer of high-end hardware components and computer utilities, is introducing its new iChiLL air cooling solution built for the high end graphics cards to be launched this year. Built around 3 large 92mm super silent fans and optionally complemented by a 4th 50mm fan, the A.P.C.S. design optimizes the heat dissipation via its integrated heat-pipes and 123 aluminum cooling fins.

Inno3D teased their custom GeForce GTX 1080 AIB using the iCHiLL solution on Facebook, and followed with another teaser shortly after, showing a load indiactor feature which will be present on their iCHiLL line of cards, and it will also be featured for the iCHiLL GeForce GTX 1070.

 

The iCHiLL line will come in two flavors, as seen in the image:

 

  • The X3 model (featuring 3 fans), which is incorporated with Scythe fan blades for silent operation and possess the ability to pull in more air for better cooling performance.
  • The X4 model (featuring 4 fans). This model will sport 15 turbine blades for even better extra cooling performance operation with 3 92mm fans and an additional 50mm fan.

 

From the image, we can also infer that at least the GeForce GTX 1080 iCHiLL card will come with a 6+8 pin connector set, allowing it to provide an even higher overclock headroom than the reference model (which has one 8-pin, leading to a max TDP of 225 W, with the base TDP being 180W). The custom board can have a maximum TDP of 300, providing a very large headroom for extreme overclocking on air. The company claims this new high-end solution will not come at an increased manufacturing cost or MSRP to the end consumer.

I started gaming with Minesweeper on my dad's office computer that ran Windows 95 and have been hooked since. I've spent many hours on classics like Wolfenstein 3D and today, I spend several more on games like Deus Ex, Darksiders, Just Cause and keep a special place in my heart for BioShock and Metro 2033. I may have a background in computer science, but I aspire to write and direct a film adaptation of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Pripyat one day. I love cats, cooking and light, soothing music. Huge Godzilla fan.
