Water Cooled GTX 1080 Revealed By Colorful
Colorful has announced its new water cooled GTX 1080 that comes with a stock custom water block. A Chinese water block manufacturer, Bykski, is the makers of this custom water block.
This custom GPU uses the same PCB as GTX 1080 Founders Edition, and it is very likely that this GPU will come with a similar clock speed. However, the GPU is built in a Water Block, which theoretically should allow overclockers to achieve higher clock speeds without the interruption of thermal limitations.
It is important to mention that Colorful is the China’s most popular GPU manufacturer, and their brand of graphics cards are rarely seen outside of Asian market, which means it is highly unlikely that we will see this water cooled GTX 1080 in any other country.
This water cooled GTX 1080 will release after May 27 and the price for this GPU is yet unknown. However, rumors suggest that this water cooled GTX 1080 will debut at a price lower than GTX 1080 Founders Edition.
Inno3D has also revealed its custom GTX 1080 cooling solution known as iChill X4 Ultra, which comes in two models X3 and X4. Both of these feature 3 main 92mm Fans, with X3 using Scythe silent fan blades and the X4 using 15 turbine fan blades.
