    Hardware Labs introducing Nemesis GTX Series

    Black Ice NEMESIS GTX Advanced PC Radiators

    The Black Ice PC Radiators ushered the dawn of professional PC watercooling over 10 years ago with the Black Ice Pro and Xtreme series. These were followed by the groundbreaking Black Ice Gen Two, GTS and GTX PC radiators, providing unprecedented performance for compact form factor heat exchangers.

    Enter NEMESIS
    The Black Ice NEMESIS Advanced PC Radiators are a culmination of over a decade's worth of experience in ultra compact heat exchanger design. Black Ice NEMESIS radiators feature Supercruise optimizations that maximize performance for an even wider range of fan speeds. The Black Ice NEMESIS GTX radiators will achieve ultra-stealth operation using sub-800 rpm fans and scale up performance with higher rpm fans.

    Internal core optimizations provide an unprecedented 15% increase in internal surface area that also enhances overall system flow rates. A radically optimized 25 micron copper fin core provides increased frontal surface area, while also dramatically reducing air pressure drop enhancing fan performance.





    Bring It On!
    These optimizations combined with the unique Black Ice GTX dual core flow pattern yields a single 120mm radiator capable of handling 450W. The NEMESIS 120 GTX will essentially allow a system builder to unify a CPU/GPU loop into one 120mm radiator.



    The Black Ice 560 GTX, the monolithic quad-140mm fan iteration, is rated for 2500W of heat dissipation, easily providing top notch thermal management performance for any overclocked quad SLI/Crossfire rig, with surplus capacity to spare.



    Quality Beyond Skin Deep
    The trademark craftmanship of Black Ice radiators remain unsurpassed and the NEMESIS maintains that tradition. The new finish, dubbed Dark Matter emphasizes the aggressive angles on each NEMESIS radiator with an even more solid build quality. (Euro Version uses a Black Carbon finish)

    And it doesn't stop there. The quality of the Black Ice NEMESIS radiators do not just go skin deep -Hardware Labs backs each Black Ice NEMESIS radiator with a lifetime warranty* against defects. Another first in the industry.

    Black Ice NEMESIS GTX radiators are now being made available across Europe and is exclusively distributed by CaseKing GmbH.

    Hardware Labs Performance Systems, Inc., is the pioneer and only company specializing in the design and manufacture of high performance PC watercooling radiators. It serves numerous industries with its high performance compact form factor heat exchangers, from high performance computing, motorsports, military, medical, power generation and power electronics.

    Black Ice, GTX, NEMESIS, and Supercruise are trademarks and/or registered trademarks of Hardware Labs Performance Systems, in the US, EU, and other other countries. Other company and product names maybe trademarks of their respective owners.

    Someone needs to test these ASAP. If their claims are true, which i highly doubt, it would be quite amazing... A single 120 capable of 450w dissipation, right.

    With a 3000rpm+ fan they probably can.

    More interested in the Nemesis GTS, would be a good competitor to the Alphacool ST30 and a bit less than 1mm thinner which is all I need for cramming it in the 250D.

    It is likely that they just twisted some words around in the marketing department and what they meant is more along the lines of: You can use it to cool components with a combined rated TDP of 450W while keeping them at a temperature slightly lower than the stock cooler manages.

    About time they changed the GTS. They were terrible radiators before. They seem much more appealing to me now.

    At 16FPI, that seems highly unlikely.

    Whats the radiator thickness on the 480? I am limited with what I can fit with the PSU in the bottom of a 900D.

    55.7mm. I'm wondering if CaseKing will deliver to the US, I need new radiators for a build.

    they were not terrible. in fact i still have them in my loop. you just need to run them with high speed fans. it's basically a single layer GTX, but to make up for the lost layer, they increased the fin count, to compensate for the same amount of heat exchange rate. and to get all that air through, you need high speed fans. it's most ideal for people working with limited space. i have mine setup with fan profile that throttles from 800rpm to 2000rpm according to CPU load. but performance wise, it performs on par or even outperforms common popular dual layer rads. i learned all this from martin.

    EDIT:
    however, i do have to say that i have doubts that the new Nemesis GTS will be able to match the Nemesis GTX in high rpm. on paper alone, the fin counts are the same between GTS/GTX Nemesis. but i could be wrong. hopefully new reviews will start popping out. there're those of us working with limited space who are interested in the single layer Rad.

    That's funny they want that much $ for one of those, I can get way better/more for less...

    has anyone tried the Nemesis GTX and GTS?

    I am really interested to know how the two stack up against each other.

    This day and age people want quiet systems. High FPI just ain't cool anymore.

    HWLabs is as good as you can get for radiator build quality. So can't really get better radiators than this.

    that's a good point, however, the higher FPI GTS has shown to out perform many dual layer Rads in the same size class. so it is "cool" for those who want to squeeze out a few more degress of performance, after all, one of the main reason one go through all the trouble to convert a system from stock to water cooling. and secondly, PWM takes care of all the issues with noise. my system is setup to throttle from 1000rpm to 2000rpm, just as any stock HSF setup.

    high FPI isn't for everyone, but for many who work with limited space, there really isn't any other solution other than a thinner rad, higher FPI, and PWM fan.
