MSI and Corsair Announce GeForce GTX 980 Ti Sea Hawk Graphics Card

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

The MSI GTX 980 Ti 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.
The advanced thermal solution, combined with high-quality components, enables the card to run at much higher frequencies compared to standard GeForce GTX 980Ti variants. The graphics core can reach up to 1291 MHz with GPU Boost 2.0 technology. The graphics card is also provided with 6GB GDDR5 memory at 7096 MHz. These specifications and the presence of NVIDIA G-Sync technology guarantee a smooth gaming experience, even when using a surround setup with multiple high-resolution monitors.

A powerful graphics card needs powerful software. Even though the GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK boasts some serious clock speeds out-of-the-box, the MSI Afterburner overclocking utility allows users to go even further. Explore the limits with Triple Overvoltage, custom profiles and real-time hardware monitoring. Afterburner also adds an in-game FPS counter and can be customized with downloadable user skins. Stay in charge with the mobile app for Android or iOS, there is no need to get out of the game.

Available now, MSRP: US $739.99.

What kind of fan is that, where the logo in the middle doesn't rotate while the fan itself is spinning? :rolleyes:
Looks fake, don't like! :cool:

Really don't see the need for this when they're such cool running cards anyway, even with a decent overclock, well designed traditional coolers and fans can easily cope with room to spare.

..just for the 'wow' factor I guess.

I like the fan on the radiator, but I wish the unit itself had a little more pizzaz in the design. Seems a little too boring personally compared to the usual awesome MSI designs.

All the corsair H coolers are Asetek or CoolIt rebrands. If Asetek doesn't make anything new Corsair can't do much.

My point was they could have gone for an H75 or H80i instead which are somewhat newer (and slightly more expensive).

Not if there is a VRM called Sherman, then its the other way around.

Corsair also sells this card
Corsair Hydro GFX
Pre order at $739.99 MSRP

In a way the news here is that Corsair is entering the market, even with the help of MSi.

Most likely because they have a boatload of stock of the H55 and that it's good enough to cool this GPU...

This Hawk model is beautiful. Compare to other MSI cards.
Remind me on GTX580 Fermi, one of nicest reference models ever I play on him at the moment.
In Europe will cost 730-750e probably...
Nice clock, 1190MHz...
