Phanteks Announces Glacier G2080 ASUS GPU Waterblock

Phanteks today announces the release of the new water block designed specifically for the ASUS Dual EVO RTX 2080/2070/2060 Super cards. Engineered to deliver high cooling performance, the Glacier G2080 ASUS is the latest addition to the Glacier Series.

Like all our Glacier Series products, the water block comes with anodized or chrome-plated cover plates, polished acrylic surface, and a high-quality nickel finishes copper base. The water block features a minimalistic design that covers the entire PCB and is compatible with the original ASUS Dual EVO backplate to highlight your hardware.
Synchronize with other DRGB products from Phanteks and compatible motherboards with the integrated Digital-RGB lighting. Thanks to the optimized high flow routing design, the full-cover water block directly cools the GPU, RAM, and VRM efficiently to ensure optimal performance and cooling.

Available at most local retailers in May 2020; MSRP: USD $149.99.

This is really beautiful.

But those fins are very thick and widely spaced .... even if the area that they cover appears larger than on most GPU blocks, I'd have to question its likely cooling performance.

Others' thoughts?

Agreed. Those fins are WAY too wide for me as well. I can't recall seeing spacing like that in a long time.

I get the feeling the designers doing these blocks are not suitably qualified engineers. Maybe the same guys who do the cases etc, or they use an external agency that focuses on design and not function.

There really is no practical reason for fins to be that thick.

I mean if there is anywhere where you want resistance to flow for a block, it's at the DIE, to improve the heat transfer. Not a lot, but a bit of restriction to work at it's best.

another? is something lifted or something that suddenly all these waterblocks come out for 2000 series Nvidia cards?
It seems so...late....like who cares at this point?

I have the 1080Ti Phanteks block for Asus Strix OC and has the same fins - I run my GPU at 2076Mhz core 12,000 memory and it never exceeds 39C.......maybe the EK runs 1-2 degrees cooler but the quality is so much higher on the Phanteks - this thing is heavy!
