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.
