- Impressive acrylic glass cover
- Four G1/4" threaded ports for integration into the water loop
Why Should I Water-Cool My Graphics Card?Buying into peak performance graphics cards has always meant contending with an increased degree of heat production, and when frequencies and compute units are already stretched to the limit, you have to start looking for a decisive advantage against competing products. Smaller node fabrication and more efficient layouts can go some way towards resolving this problem but never completely resolve it, and moreover the next-generation graphics cards are similarly expected to be pushed to the maximum.
The problem of the heat production is worsened by overclocking due to temperatures reaching critical levels. In short: Anyone who enjoys low noise levels while gaming or benching, and who wants to retain the highest possible clock speeds, should turn to water cooling. Besides the usual components consisting of radiators, pumps, and reservoirs needed for a water cooling setup, an appropriately customised cooler for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is needed - one like this model from cooling and case specialists Raijintek.
Design & Connectors of the Raijintek Samos AS1080Ti Water-CoolerRaijintek's Samos series uses a full-block design which covers all relevant sources of heat on the PCB and cools them with equal effectiveness - including the GPU itself, the VRAM and the VRMs. This is where the nickel-plated copper and 0,5 mm optimised channel structures come into play to efficiently and effectively remove waste heat.
The centre of the cover consists of transparent acrylic glass. The connection terminal provides four ports (1/4" threaded). Due to the flat design of the cooler it is also possible to connect multiple graphics cards in SLI without issues.
Info 1: The original cooler must be removed prior to installation, which invalidates the manufacturer's guarantee!
Info 2: Integration into a cooling loop will require connectors that are not contained within the bundle. Since compatibility with new graphics cards is expanding and the bundle may in change in rare instances, please ensure compatibility with the Raijintek Samos AS1080Ti water cooler and which accessories are bundled with the water block.
