no doubt about performance and quality of EK water blocks, rads (and misc)... but there should be no doubt about a hefty premium in price, I would bet that even a +200-300$ over overpriced gtx 1080 sea hawk x should be expectedmeans)

I wish I can purchase that AIO without card itself. I think this system works on the new TITAN X better than 1080.

It's a complete aftermarket solution so a 200-250$ premium would make it a sweet deal. Although I would like to see that Rad/Pump combo for sale as standalone unit for Liquid cooling builds as it certainly would help in saving space in case.

There ya go, pump on the radiator so a nice sleek waterblock on the card itself, very nice.
Too bad they did not sacrifice that extra port and made it a single slot card though.

That would be pretty expensive. In theory you could just buy EKs titan X full cover block and cheapest EKs predator cpu AIO and do plumbing and refill the unit. If my memory is not deceiving me, EKs warranty even covers that.

Looks fantastic but like many 1080's will be priced atrociously and guess what - will over clock the same as sub £600 card

ohhh that one look yummy and not a crappy AIO (not in the literal sense ...)
a real block and loop just with shorter tubing and pump-res-rad combo

i have to add ... "GG MSI you got/did a good one!" (well it's MSI ... not even surprised ... i like that brand more and more)

as other mentioned ... one fear : pricing :laugh:

I said over gtx 1080 sea hawk x (not over the cheapest gtx 1080)... newegggtx1080seahawk
for that money (add another 200-300$) you can not only buy gtx 1080 with custom loop (and block of course), but almost make it double.

Single fan Predator cooler. Now that's what I'd want on my CPU...

I really like the block and backplate, very sleek and subtly stylish. Nice looking card.

Get rid of the DVI-D and make it a single slot. Who's buying a watercooled GTX 1080 and using DVI-D? Beautiful card though, if you're going to sell an AIO this is the way to do it.

Superior cooling all in one package ! Great kit nice and upgrade is possible and cheaper .Worth buying , it could be a TITAN pascal and the pack would be even better .

This is very new. I've asked them about it when first Predator AiO came out and they said they don't have plans for it. Obviously they do now hehe :) I just have to check if I can fit it into my mounting point between cages.

Well, this is £999 at Overclockers in the UK.

Ouch.
