Reference GTX 980 with AIO Cooling Spotted

Don’t get your hopes up NVIDIA is not coming out with an AIO cooling version of their GeForce GTX 980 graphics card. Japanese system builder Sycom decided to take matters into their own hands and have cut a corner out of the shroud on a reference GeForce GTX 980, removed the heatsink and replaced it with the Asetek 740GN water cooling unit.

The end result looks pretty good, so good that many sites have been claiming that this is a new reference design from NVIDIA! The AIO cooler can take care of the GPU, but the rest of the cooler is still cooled by the reference fan.

For people who may not want to go the full-blown liquid cooling setup this is a viable option, although currently you can also get a card like this through Sycom by purchasing one of their systems.

Maybe this will get other companies to follow-up on this trend. Only time will tell.
