Phanteks is probably best known for its wide-ranging line of computer cases, but the company has a full folio of cooling products as well. Recently, that folio has expanded to include custom liquid cooling parts with the Glacier G1080. This water block is a full-coverage unit for the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition. It features configurable RGB LED lighting that can be linked into the lighting system on a compatible Phanteks case. Phanteks also has an adapter to connect the lighting to some system boards.

The block itself is made from black and clear acrylic, with an aluminum backplate and a nickel-plated copper cold plate. Phanteks used DuPont Viton in the gaskets, which it says will hold up better to temperature variations in the cooling fluid compared to other companies' silicone rubber gaskets. The Glacier G1080 isn't available yet, but you can pre-order the block at Phanteks' online store for $129.99.
