Published on May 3rd, 2012
Inno3D, one of the popular company in making excellent graphics card, revealed to us its latest creation, the Inno3D iChill HerculeZ 3000 GTX 680 graphics card. This huge and tough looking graphics card features a customizable cooling solution that aims to suit your style.
Basically, the Inno3D iChill HerculeZ 3000 is made up of GeForce GTX 680 with a non reference cooler, iChill HerculeZ 3000. The HerculeZ is made up of 9 scythe blades on each of its fans, a large heatsink and with large heatpipes, and is 29cm long.
The cover of the HerculeZ 300 is detachable unleashing the full power of the cooler. Fan blades are also detachable for easy cleaning.
Unfortunately, Inno3D decided not to disclose the specs of this graphics card yet. I’m not really sure why but the only thing I could see is a GeForce GTX 680 with a “herculian” cooler. Perhaps the the iChill HerculeZ 3000 GTX 680 has above factory settings or is OC by default. Let’s just see when the official specs comes out.
