Product information - Glacier RTX 2080/2080 Ti, ASUS Strix, RGB - chromeThe Glacier RTX 2080/2080Ti ASUS Strix from PHANTEKS is a premium and high-performance cooler for custom watercooling. It is compatible with the PCBs of the Asus GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti Strix graphics cards. Thanks to the optimised channel structure and nickel-plated copper, it makes light work of efficiently cooling the GPU, memory and VRMs. The heatsink also happens to offer superb aesthetics thanks to the choice of materials with transparent acrylic glass and chrome-plated aluminium.
The PHANTEKS Glacier RTX 2080/2080Ti ASUS Strix Watercooler at a Glance:
- Precisely fits the GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti Strix graphics cards from Asus
- Effective cooling performance with nickel-plated copper base
- Impressive aesthetics thanks to the aluminium and acrylic glass
- Four G1/4" ports for integrating into a custom loop
- Pre-mounted digitally addressable RGB-LED lighting
Looks & Ports of the PHANTEKS Glacier RTX 2080/2080Ti ASUS Strix WatercoolerThis is a full-block design which covers all the relevant sources of heat on the graphics card, providing highly effective cooling for the GPU, VRAM and VRMs. The use of nickel-plated copper and a newly optimised channel structure help to dissipate heat with remarkable efficacy.
The centre of the cover consists of transparent acrylic glass and the exterior is made of chrome-plated aluminium. The cooler is connected using four G1/4"-thread ports). The flat construction of the cooler also makes connecting multiple graphics cards in SLI a breeze.
The digitally addressable RGB LED illumination is equipped with the same RGB connectors as other PHANTEKS products and can be controlled via a PHANTEKS RGB-LED controller (if present). A connector allows the connection to compatible motherboards. Compatibility with ASUS ROG Aura and MSI Mystic Light RGB-LED Headers is also possible.
The sealing rings on the PHANTEKS Glacier RTX 2080/2080Ti ASUS Strix are made from premium quality Viton. This material is utilised in the aerospace and automotive industries due to its enviable durability and resistance to high temperatures and volatile liquids.
Why Cool My Graphics Card with Water?Peak performance in the GPU segment typical comes with a caveat: excessive heat. This is due to the fact that getting the last drops of performance from the card's Compute Units requires all the dials to be turned to eleven, with the decisive advantage over competing products coming down to who has the superior cooling. Smaller nodes and more efficient layouts certainly help contain this problem, although they don't completely resolve it. Moreover, each generation pushes things to the max - and when this happens, there's really only one alternative: water!
This problem is made worse when factoring in the role of overclocking, critical temperatures can quickly be breached while pushing silicon to its limits. In short: If you want the highest possible clock frequencies with the lowest noise, watercooling is the solution for you. Aside from the usual components (radiator, pump, reservoir) a compatible cooler for the NVIDIA Glacier RTX 2080/2080Ti ASUS Strix range of graphics cards is needed - and the watercooling specialists at PHANTEKS developed this especially for the purpose.
Note 1: Integration into a custom loop will require fittings not included within the scope of the included parts. The original cooler must be removed prior to mounting, which invalidates the manufacturer's guarantee!
Note 2: Since compatibility may be extended by the arrival of new graphics cards and, in rare cases, the included accessories may in rare cases change, please be sure to check the manufacturer's website to see if you can use the PHANTEKS Glacier RTX 2080/2080Ti ASUS Strix water cooler as well as what accessories are included.
Note 3: This Glacier GPU watercooler does not include an additional backplate, since the backplate of compatible graphics cards can be used!
