Corsair Launches Nautilus GPU Water Cooling Blocks

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Fremont, CA (October 11, 2006) – Corsair® Memory, Inc., a worldwide leader in high performance enthusiast computer products, took its acclaimed water cooling product line to a new level today with the release of the Nautilus GPU water blocks supporting the latest NVIDIA® GeForce™based graphics cards in both single and dual SLI™ configurations. The Corsair Nautilus GPU water blocks are the perfect accessory for the Corsair Nautilus500 external liquid cooling system, and other third party liquid cooling solutions that utilize 3/8” tubing.


The Corsair Nautilus GPU water block is designed to provide maximum cooling for NVIDIA GeForce7800, 7900 GT/GTX and 7950 GT series video cards in both single and SLI configuration. Constructed with a pure solid copper base and RAM cooling pad mounting points design, the Nautilus dual GPU water blocks provide optimum cooling directly on the GPU and the video RAM. This additional cooling allows for significant GPU overclocking. The compact low profile block features a single inlet and outlet for cooling two video cards that reduces the tubing lengths and improves the flow characteristics of the water cooling sub-system.

Designed for enthusiasts, the new Nautilus GPU water block brings up to 40% more GPU cooling efficiency* when paired with the Nautilus 500 water cooling unit, allowing for significant overclocking. While overclocking is not guaranteed by any one component, the degree of system overclock generally correlates with the degree of component cooling.

“Corsair continues to invest in developing the best in class products for computing enthusiasts. The Nautilus GPU blocks are another example of our commitment to support the enthusiast community.” stated Richard Hashim, Director of Product Marketing at Corsair Memory. “Corsair engineers are overclockers at heart. We realize the importance of having excellent cooling for the core components in order to maximize performance. In combination with our Nautlilus500 external liquid cooling unit, and the included processor block, the Nautilus GPU blocks are designed to deliver exceptional system cooling and performance.”

The Corsair part number for the single Nautilus GPU block is CWC100-NGPU, and the part number for the dual pack is CWC100-NGPUDUAL. The Nautilus GPU water block is currently available through Corsair’s authorized distributors, resellers and retailers worldwide. The estimated street price is US$99.99 for the single version and US$199.99 for the dual version. For more information on where to buy, please visit this site.
