MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Sea Hawk X Pictured

Here's the first picture of a liquid-cooled GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. The new MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Sea Hawk X features a factory-fitted all-in-one liquid cooling solution by Corsair. This includes a liquid pump-block for the GPU, and a heatsink cooling the memory and VRM under the airflow of a lateral blower. The card ships with factory-overclocked speeds of 1607 MHz core, 1797 MHz GPU Boost, and 8108 MHz (GDDR5-effective) memory, against reference clock speeds of 1506/1683/8008 MHz.

Is it just me or is that a rather paltry OC for an AIO GPU??

One 8-pin pcie plug, is it just FE edition with corsair's AIO slapped on it or what is the point.

EDIT: oh the news was gtx1070 not 1080. Failing too much today...

Jebus, what a "gigantique" GPU :-D ... nono ... the MASSIVE AND OVERSIZED PCB IS NOT ENOUGH! TAKE THIS ENORMOUS EXTRA RADIATOR ALSO! hell. WHO buys such shit design? You guys still run full towers today?

Sea Hawk? Here I thought it was going to be a seahawks themed football card, that'd be... different.

It was a toss up between the urchin, the mahi-mahi, or the pelican, and the sea hawk.

It's actually not that big - it's just a 120mm design. You could throw it over your front intake.

Also, no, not everyone is in fact obsessed with running the smallest, most cramped and PITA to work with Mini-ITX case they can get their hands on. I understand this might be difficult to come to terms with - but not everyone shares your exact same opinion. :rolleyes:

Just think of it as slapping a bigger radiator in your car, it won't go faster, but it will run cooler.

not dumb solution - for mitx cases - at least previous hybrids (on 980ti) showed exceptional thermals and noise levels...

everything is oversized when it's bigger than gtx 970 mini or radeon nano. 6-6.5" should be the standard today.

Speak for yourself, I would rather have full sized cooler on my card, especially with my ambient temperature.

Ill take full sized or three slotters anyday if it means cooler components...

Yep. kind of have to if you want to run your system entirely on custom water cooling. Some mid towers can do it too.

You clearly dont understand pcb design. Its not easy making pcb that small and still fit everything, they usually have to go with a thicker pcb to make up for less space to fit all the circuitry. Once you do get that small, its not exactly a good thing.
