Phanteks Announces Glacier G2070 Strix Waterblock for ASUS GPUs
Digital RGB Waterblock for ASUS Strix RTX 2070/2060
Custom liquid cooling might not be necessary to get optimal performance from a desktop CPU in the era of giant (and quiet) tower air coolers unless you are doing some serious overclocking, but graphics cards are another story.
To achieve the highest sustained GPU boost clocks – and hit higher overclocks, if you’re adventurous – liquid cooling is still the way to go, and Phanteks has a new option for ASUS Strix NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070/2060 owners.
The Glacier G2070 Strix Waterblock isn’t just about cooling performance, though, as Phanteks has employed their integrated Digital-RGB lighting for even, full-block illumination. From the images provides this is a rather subtle effect with the liquid glowing through the acrylic, and there is a choice between satin black (pictured) and chrome color finishes.
Like all our Glacier Series products, the waterblock comes with anodized or chrome plated aluminum cover plates, polished acrylic surface, and high-quality nickel finish copper base. The water block features minimalistic design that covers the entire PCB length and is compatible with the original ASUS Strix backplate to highlight your hardware.
The integrated Digital-RGB lighting illuminates the whole waterblock evenly. The full cover waterblock directly cools the GPU, RAM and VRM (Voltage Regulation Module) thanks to the optimized high flow routing design. This ensures optimal performance and cooling to help keep the GPU stable even at high clock speeds or massive workloads.
