Why should I cool my graphics card with water?
Peak performance is still bought at the graphics card segment with just as much heat. This is because the decisive advantage over the competing products can only be achieved if the timing screw is turned up to the stop and the calculation units are used up to the last segment. Smaller structure widths and more efficient layouts can indeed limit this problem, but not completely eliminate it. After all, the next generation is expected to reach the maximum as expected.
The problem is exacerbated by own overclocking, as the temperatures can reach critical values. In short, if you want a low volume even in the game mode or even when you want to turn and at the same time turn at the clock screw, hardly any water cooling. In addition to the usual components (radiator, pump, expansion tank), a suitable cooler for the MSI Gaming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card is necessary - as is the model of Wakü specialist PHANTEKS.
Optics and connections of the PHANTEKS Glacier GTX 1080 Ti MSI Gaming water chiller
It is a full-block design, which covers all relevant heat sources of the graphics card and thus effectively cools - ie the GPU, the memory and the voltage transformers. Nickel-plated copper and an optimized channel structure are used to transfer the heat optimally.
The lid consists of transparent acrylic glass on the middle and chromium-plated aluminum on the outside. The connection terminal has four holes (G1 / 4-inch thread). The flat design of the cooler also makes it possible to connect several graphics cards in an SLI network without problems.
The RGB LED lighting is equipped with the same RGB connectors that are also used with other PHANTEKS products and can be controlled via the RGB LED control (if present) of a PHANTEKS housing. Connection to the corresponding mainboards is possible via a connector. A compatibility with the ASUS ROG Aurora and MSI Mystic Light RGB LED headers is given.
Note 1: Connections are not required for integration into the cooling circuit. The original cooler has to be removed before the assembly, which means the manufacturing guarantee will be extinguished!
Note 2: Since the compatibility can be extended by new graphics cards and the scope of supply can change in rare cases, please check whether you can use the PHANTEKS Glacier GTX 1080 Ti MSI Gaming water cooler and which accessories are included with the water chiller block.
