Water-Cooled GTX 1080 Ti From Corsair And MSI Released Today

Today, Corsair released the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti, which was made in partnership with MSI. It’s an overclocked version of the Nvidia graphics card that sports a built-in liquid cooling system to keep the card’s temperatures as low as possible. The card also comes with a 120mm radiator and a 120mm white LED fan attached.

Compared to the Founders Edition of the GTX 1080 Ti, Corsair claims the Hydro GFX version stays nearly 50 percent cooler, even under peak load. This creates significant room for overclocking; according to Corsair, its card had a peak core clock speed a little over 1900 MHz, while the Founders Edition’s peak core clock was about 1850 MHz.

The following are its core and memory clock speeds in three different modes out of the box:

Boost/Base Core Clock

  • 1,506 MHz / 1,620 MHz (OC Mode)
  • 1,493 MHz / 1,607 MHz (Gaming Mode)
  • 1,480 MHz / 1,582 MHz (Silent Mode)

Memory Clock

  • 11,124 MHz (OC Mode)
  • 11,016 MHZ (Gaming Mode)
  • 11,016 MHz (Silent Mode)

Like all GTX 1080 Ti cards, it’s equipped with 11 GB of GDDR5X memory, a 352-bit memory bus, and 3584 CUDA cores. The card can consume up to 250 watts alone and a power supply of at least 600 watts is suggested.

This isn’t the first time Corsair and MSI teamed up for an all-in-one water-cooled graphics card. They also made a Hydro GFX version of the GTX 1080 that yielded similar results. It’s currently on sale from Corsair for $600.

The Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti retails for $800, $100 more than the Founders Edition straight from Nvidia. Check out our full review of the GTX 1080 Ti for details on how it performs.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
