Alphacool reveals their Ice Block GPX-N series of RTX 2070 M1 water blocks

At the start of this week, Nvidia officially revealed their RTX series of Turing-powered graphics cards. These graphics cards will become available starting September 20th with the launch of Nvidia's RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, with a lower cost RTX 2070 shipping sometime afterwards. 

Today, before we even have a release date for the graphics card, Alphacool has announced that they have created a full-cover water block for Nvidia's RTX 2070, offering consumers the same Plexi and Acetal-covered options as its RTX 2080/2080 Ti counterpart.

Both versions of Aplhacool's RTX 2070 water block are available to pre-order, 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. Nvidia's RTX 2070 water block is incompatible with Nvidia's reference RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti PCB designs, which feature different power circuitry layouts and other design tweaks.

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.
