Corsair and MSI team up again for Hydro GFX GTX 1080Ti

Corsair and MSI are teaming up once again to release a new Hydro GFX graphics card this year. This time around, Corsair has applied its AIO liquid cooling expertise to the GTX 1080Ti, creating an easy to install liquid cooled GTX 108Ti.

The Corsair Hydro GFX GTX 1080Ti is developed in partnership with MSI, using one of the partner boards and attaching a Corsair H55 AIO liquid cooler to it, with an additional blower-style GPU shroud over the top to help cool the VRMs. On the 120mm radiator, you will find an ML120 Corsair cooling fan, which uses magnetic levitation to physically suspend the fan rotor away from the motor when in operation, which reduces both friction and fan noise.

Thanks to this cooling implementation, noise levels should be greatly reduced, especially over a reference design card. The same should be true for temperatures too.

Aside from the cooler, the GTX 1080Ti Hydro comes with a nice out of the box overclock, bumping speeds up to 1620MHz on the core while in boost mode. Here are the full specifications for the card:

This particular GTX 1080Ti comes with a three year warranty and will be available directly through Corsair un the UK, US and Germany soon. Pricing will vary from region to region.

KitGuru Says: As someone who is less familiar with building a custom water cooling loop, I do appreciate these options becoming more common, though they only tend to appear for top-end GPUs. Do any of you guys own an AIO cooled graphics card? Would you recommend it?

    Bizarre timing but in another window I have a 10 series AIO sitting in my shopping basket after being seriously let down by AMD’s lacklustre 580 and promising my 290X to a friend, so back on topic, are the AIO coolers really all that good and are they worth the extra £30 pound premium? Also it’s a bit crazy but the 1070’s and 1080’s are down to within a few coffees and sandwiches difference of each other at the moment, sheer madness.

    since this is a reference pcb i dont really think its worth the watercooling,maybe take a look at evga hybrid cards but their ti will most likely take at least another month or two

  • nbrigdan

    If that’s really just an H55 then this will have pretty poor performance seeing as the cold plate you want to use on a CPU is significantly different from the one you want to use on a GPU. (Given that on the GPU you have direct contact with the die whereas on the CPU you are interfacing with the IHS.)

    Yeah thanks it was the EVGA I was looking at but didn’t want to hijack a MSI thread. The FTW is £500 which is more than I’ve ever spent on a GPU by a considerable margin. Got butterflies about pressing buy.

    Not a reference board.
