MSI Teams Up with EK to Create RTX 2080/Ti Sea Hawk EK X series GPUs

The MSI Sea Hawk series of graphics cards is nothing new, packing the performance of the latest GPU offerings with a custom water cooling solution that is designed to deliver users peak performance levels and optimal thermals. 

Now, EK and MSI have teamed up to create their Sea Hawk EK X series of RTX-powered graphics cards, merging what appears to be MSI's high-end Gaming X Trio PCB design with a custom EK full-cover water block. This custom design also ships complete with addressable RGB lighting, which can be controlled using MSI's Mystic Light software. 

The MSI Sea Hawk EK series of graphics cards will ship with MSI's water block fitted right out of the box, utilising a nickel plated copper block with an acrylic glass top. The graphics card is also adorned with a full cover backplate and several carbon fibre patterns on the unit. 

When looking at the specifications of the graphics card we can see that the RT 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti models feature the same listed clock speeds as the Gaming X Trio series (Reviews Here), though these water-cooled models will likely maintain higher boost clock speeds for longer when it is attached to a large enough water cooling setup.

I really like MSI kit and actually own a 2080 gaming X Trio. But as someone who likes more sophisticated hardware, I really wish they would get rid of the dragon Motif..Quote
