The EVGA XC / XC2 Hydro Copper GeForce RTX 2080 Water Cooler Overview:
- Perfect fit for the EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC / XC2 graphics cards
- Effective cooling performance through nickel-plated copper bottom
- Impressive look through aluminum and acrylic lid
- Six G1 / 4-inch ports for integration into the circuit
Optics and Connections of the EVGA XC / XC2 Hydro Copper GeForce RTX 2080 Water Cooler
The EVGA XC / XC2 Hydro Copper GeForce RTX 2080 full block design waterblock covers all the relevant heat sources of the graphics card - the GPU, the memory and the voltage transformers. This allows the graphics card to be cooled effectively, providing maximum performance even during longer gaming sessions. The necessary thermal pads are already preassembled on the GPU cooler, so that the conversion of the graphics card is quick and easy.
In addition to good cooling performance, the EVGA XC / XC2 Hydro Copper GeForce RTX 2080 water cooler also looks good. The majority of the lid is made of transparent acrylic glass and framed on two sides by brushed aluminum.
Why should I cool my graphics card with water?
Top performance in the graphics card segment continues to be paid for with equally top-class heat development. Because only if the clock screw turned to the stop and the calculation units are used to the last segment, the decisive advantage over the competing products can be achieved. Smaller structure widths and more efficient layouts can limit this problem, but not completely eliminate it. As expected, the next generation will also be required to the max.
The problem is exacerbated by its own overclocking, because the temperatures can reach critical levels. In short: If you also want a low volume in game mode or even while playing Benchen and possibly want to simultaneously turn the clock, you can hardly avoid a water cooling system. In addition to the usual components (radiator, pump, expansion tank), a suitable cooler for the EVGA SC / SC2 GeForce RTX 2080 graphic cards is of course necessary.
