Alphacool launches their RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti water block

Nvidia has revealed their RTX series of Turing-powered graphics cards, offering gamers not just increased shader performance, and pricing, than their predecessors but also the promise of Ray Tracing and AI accelerated processing.  

Many early adopters of these graphics cards will desire top-tier performance levels, which means two things, high-end cooling and overclocking. To cater to this market, Alphacool has created their Ice Block GPX-N series water block for Nvidia's RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, enabling high-end water cooling capabilities with both Acetal and plexi-covered flavours. 

Both of these water blocks are available for pre-order today, starting at €114.95 for the Acetal-covered variant and €149.95 for the block's RGB-enabled plexi-covered version, which is compliant with ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB fusion, MSI Mystic Light LED and other similar RGB LED control systems. 

Both of these water blocks contain the same block design, which is manufactured using copper and is later plated with nickel. Both of these water blocks support NVLink/SLI

Both water blocks ship with a backplate, though both models feature different backplate designs. The Acetal version uses a classic backplate that is covered with cooling fins for better cooling. The plexi version of the ice block GPX water cooler uses a smooth backplate that together with the cooler encases the entire PCB. 

Both of these new water block designs are available to pre-order from Alphacool's website and will ship on September 20th.

Yup, plus if you're already insane enough to spend that kind of money on a GPU, what's another few hundred quid.Quote

Plus if you've got that kind of cash sitting around, you probably aren't THAT worried about making a mistake when creating the loops and everything else.

Man...this really makes me want to try my hand at a real water cooled pc rather then my AIO :/ but I don't wanna drop the $500-600 on all the parts to cool my 4790k and my 1070 :/ they cool enough as is when under load to where I really don't know how much cooler I would get.

Ugh...I still want to try making a custom loop, maybe this coming xmas or something I'll finally throw the gauntlet at it.Quote

You could just make a GPU only loop for now until you get more funds for a CPU loop?Quote

GPU loop is 10x more important than CPU loop, trust me on that. It always makes me laugh when people drop a nut on water cooling their CPU, and leave the important part on air.

Any Ryzen CPU can quite easily "top out" on air cooling (apart from TR but that's not a usual thing to use) and Intel can get to 4.4ghz easy on a decent air cooler or AIO.

I got 250mhz extra 24/7 boost out of my Titan XP slapping it under water. IIRC I spent about £300 cooling it, but it performs like an absolute champ and I never have to worry about it because even during the heat wave it never went over 50c.Quote
