MSI SEA HAWK EK X is the product of a revolutionary partnership, combining MSI’s top-notch graphics card engineering with the popular EK water block. The result is one of the coolest and most silent graphics cards available on the market.

High Performance Full Cover Waterblock
Central inlet split flow cooling engine design delivers the best cooling performance for liquid cooling systems, even when using less powerful water pumps.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SEA HAWK EK X 11GB GDDR5X VR Ready Graphics Card, 3584 Core, 1544MHz GPU, 1657MHz Boost is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely videocard 1080ti msi is great. I m using it 2 months and cant find problems. xD Everything working perfectly. In oc mode 1999mhz. Just Wow. O_O

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EK/MSI have made one heck of a GPU A great purchase, very impressed with EK/MSI's design and quality. Here's some of my thoughts on this product: + The clear plexi cover shows the nice block underneath - I will switch from acetal to plexiglass in the future (using clear liquid) + It also makes it easy to see blockages / air pockets + Almost a drop in replacement to my old blocked GPU in my loop + No messing around with removing coolers / adding blocks (as fun as that is) + Due to the above, comes with a 3 year warranty where you don't need to "hide the evidence" of replacing coolers + My sample clocked to 1970MHz out of the box with no tweaks + Front dragon logo is reasonably tasteful + Rear dragon logo is RGB and can be turned off / pulsing / flashing etc. using the MSI Gaming App + Backing plate is impressive due to the large size of the card Neutral: This card is massive. Please double check the dimensions before you purchase it, especially the top with the fittings as it sticks out considerably. Neutral: I switched from a 150w gpu to a 250+w gpu, needing to adjust fan/pump profiles due to the increased load - please consider your cooling capacity if you also make a big jump in heat load. Neutral: Doesn't particularly clock better than reference cards, but it does this without throttling in any circumstances (also noise/temps). - Overclocked to 2050 mhz with no voltage adjustments (I was hoping 2100) - Requires the MSI Gaming App to switch to the OC bios profile (no physical switch) or edit the LED lighting (it is by default off), which is yet another software package on my PC - While MSI priced this model reasonably well relative to the reference / third party cards, the entire GP102 lineup is very pricey All in all, I highly recommend this paired with a high/variable refresh rate monitor, as it lets you focus more on the game and less on the "oh no, I need to lower my settings again".
