For graphics card and CPU
During CES 2017, EVGA has shown a new GPU cooler and a modular water cooling system for CPUs. With the iCX EVGA wants move away from its flagship ACX 3.0. Although no precise details have been revealed we can already say that the old cooler looks quite it looks quite similar to the new one. Apart from that EVGA has also come up with an expandable all-in-one water cooler.
Just a few months ago, a large number of EVGA 10-series GPU owners were reporting high VRM temperatures which was related to the ACX 3.0 cooler. The company fixed the issue shipping free additional thermal pads. Although this issue appeared only under heavy workloads like stress tests such as Furmark, EVGA has decided to refresh its cooler.
According to the first pictures EVGA did stick to the two fan design and only changed the backplate. Compared to the older model, we see more air-vents and grills. At the moment we still don't know if the iCX cooler will be part of a premium series or if it will replace the current ACX cooler.
Furthermore EVGA has shown an AIO cooler with expandable loop and 120, 240 and 360mm radiators. Each radiator will feature EVGA-branded fans and EVGA plans to launch a quick-release liquid cooler for GPU and CPU water blocks once the AIO system is available on the market. It’s not the first time that EVGA unveils something like that but despite this fact we still don't know a release date.
