PC component vendor Thermaltake has peeled back the protective sticker on the latest addition to its Pacific V-GTX 10 Series of full-coverage water blocks for Nvidia GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards. The new block is designed for full coverage liquid cooling of Asus ROG Strix GTX 1070 and 1080 cards. This model is similar to the existing Pacific V-GTX 10 Series Founders Edition water block, which as the name implies is compatible with Founder's Edition GTX 1070 and 1080 pixel-pushers.
The water block comprises a CNC-machined copper base with 0.5-mm internal fin construction. The "Transparent" portion of the water block's name is doubtlessly inspired by the top portion, which is made from acrylic. The block is equipped with G1/4 fittings popular with custom open-loop liquid cooling enthusiasts. A 4-mm thick aluminum backplate, a collection of screws and washers, thermal pads, and thermal grease are included in the package.
The weight of the block is listed as 1.33 kg (or 2.93 lbs), though there's no word if this includes the weight of the coolant. In either case, the thick backplate is probably important for supporting the card with all that weight hanging on it. Thermaltake has not yet provided price or availability information for the Pacific V-GTX 10 series water block.
