 It looks like EVGA are releasing a Titan X with an aftermarket cooler, well..... almost. Nvidia's Titan GPUs have almost always been limited o the stock cooler as agreements are in place between manufacturers and Nvidia which prevent them from changing the stock PCB, voltage and power limitations and even the cooling solutions, leaving High end Nvidia users with little to no choice.

In the past many manufacturers have gotten past this by shipping the GPU with two coolers, the stock and the aftermarket versions, allowing the end user to upgrade their GU to the aftermarket cooling solution if they wished. Now it seems Nvidia have even closed this loophole,  meaning that EVGA now have to ship the cooler separately. 

 

 

Here is what EVGA say on their official webpage.


EVGA ACX 2.0 for GeForce GTX TITAN X

Most graphics card manufacturers only focus on one aspect when designing their cooling solution and neglect all other aspects of the fan design and heatsink. With EVGA ACX 2.0, we focused on the details that make a real difference.

In fact, did you know that the power consumption of a fan can directly affect your overclocking ability? Modern NVIDIA graphics cards have a maximum power ceiling that takes into account the fan power consumption, meaning the lower the power consumption from the fan, the more power available for the GPU! Triple fan coolers from competitors increase power consumption, thereby lowering your maximum overclocking headroom. When it comes to graphics cards cooling, less is more!

Fan Blade Quality

  • 11 fan blades increase CFM and static pressure
  • Swept Fan Design to Reduce Fan Noise Level
  • Low Profile

Fan Motor Quality

  • Improved magnets allow for 150RPM max increase
  • 3 Phase / 6 Slot Design Improves Efficiency
  • Increased Silicon Steel increases magnet strength

What this means to you

  • 26% Lower GPU Temperature*
  • 36% Quieter*
  • 250% Lower Fan Power Consumption*
  • 400% Longer Lifespan**

*vs reference cooler
**vs competitor dual fan cooling solution

With EVGA now shipping their ACX cooler separately to their own Titan X GPUs, now everybody with a Titan X could benefit from their cooling solution if they wished, though it may be difficult to ship these in any meaningful quantity given the fact that the Titan X is too pricey for most users and that other aftermarkets GPU coolers are available which are compatible with other GPUs if the user ever upgrades from their Titan X in the future.

EVGA's ACX 2.0+ Cooler is coming to the Titan X, but would you pay $69.99 extra to upgrade your Titan X?http://www.overclock3d.net/articles/gpu_displays/evga_s_acx_2_0_cooler_is_coming_to_the_titan_x/1

I'll only get it if you do a review on it

*EDIT*

Nevermind thought it was the watercooled block EVGA brought out, Now that I would get if they made it TX compatible.Quote

Would be awesome if such an option were available for the 290x, I know there are aftermarket models, however I did get some reference ones to watercool when they first came out.Quote
