These Glacier waterblocks are compatible with MSI Gaming and AORUS GTX 1080 Ti video cards. It uses premium materials and are made with fine craftsmanship that Phanteks is well-known for. Phanteks’ Glacier solution is also unique in that it uses VITON sealing gasket material, which commonly finds use in aerospace engineering applications. It is a lot more durable and can withstand extreme temperatures without leaking. Each block uses thick nickel-plated copper base for optimal heat transfer. The GPU in the center as well as the surround VRAM and MOSFET VRMs receive cooling as well.
