[PR] MSI and Corsair bring the best of air and liquid cooling to the GeForce GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK

MSI is proud to announce the result of a revolutionary partnership with Corsair at the Tokyo Game Show 2015. Combining MSI’s expertise in gaming graphics cards and Corsair’s closed loop liquid-cooling solution, the GeForce GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK was born. This latest addition to the legendary MSI Hawk family provides outstanding gaming performance at revolutionary low temperatures and noise levels.

The MSI GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK utilizes the popular Corsair H55 closed loop liquid-cooling solution. The micro-fin copper base takes care of an efficient heat transfer to the high-speed circulation pump. The low-profile aluminum radiator is easy to install and equipped with a super silent 120 mm fan with variable speeds based on the GPU temperature. However, to get the best performance, the memory and VRM need top-notch cooling as well. Therefore, the GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK is armed with a ball-bearing radial fan and a custom shroud design to ensure the best cooling performance for all components.

It looks to be reference, thats a shame.

from what I have seen on OCN, it isn't reference but it isn't a lightning either.

I'm undecided on the extra fan. AIO will definitely help the card hit maximum boost clocks throughout game sessions, but still having a fan to cool the VRM will add to the noise. Any reviews out already?

Belgium leeghoofd says:

H55 is not good enough in my book (especially for CPUs), This radiator in combo with a single slow spinning fan feels indeed awkward. Case compatibility will be great due to the thin radiator, but performance will be debatable ...

Sorry guys the old guy is very sceptical about this solution, An H80I radiator would have given far better performance if bundled with a single SP fan...

Nevertheless the 980Ti isn't such a hothead as the 290X. The previously shown AMD solutions at Computex were a fail in my book... With the nVidia it might jield temps into the 55°C region when loaded...

People have been using the H55 with Kraken g10 for years now on cards ranging from 770's to 290x's and everything inbetween, it's definitely fine.

That's a custom PCB from MSI 980 Ti GAMING.

United States Random says:

Oh, whoops, someone said this was for the seahawk on ocn.

It might be actually, just saying it is same PCB than 980 Ti GAMING :D

United States Random says:

Oh, I see what you mean.
You were saying gpu is gaming pcb, not the pic.

I dunno what is Sea Hawk PCB.
I was just saying your pic is 980 Ti GAMING PCB but it is possible both cards use the same, I am clueless.
