Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti offers amazing performance right out of the box. For some people, though, that still isn't enough. For the flock of framerate-mad fanatics, Phanteks offers its Glacier Series G1080Ti water block. Nvidia's Pascal GPUs tend to respond favorably to low operating temperatures by maintaining high boost clocks through long periods, and a custom waterblock may be just the ticket to wringing even more performance out of the GP102 GPU.
Phanteks says the block fits GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition and Titan X graphics cards, though we can't say for certain whether this refers to the original Maxwell Titan X, the newer Pascal Titan X, or both.
The company didn't specify what metal it used for the Glacier G1080Ti, but the company's other waterblocks are made from nickel-plated copper, so it's likely that this range-topping model is built from the same material. Phanteks did say the O-rings are made from a long-lasting Viton material used in automotive and aerospace applications. The liquid cooler line fittings are of the standard G1/4 type.
The Glacier G1080Ti will be available in mirrored chrome and satin black finishes. The integrated RGB LED lighting will help the block fit in with any color scheme. Phanteks says the Glacier G1080Ti will be available in April for $150, and offers two-year warranty coverage.
