Like other manufacturers offering waterblocks for graphics cards, Corsair responded to the Nvidia GeForce RTX by announcing 30 waterblocks.
At Corsair, these are combined into the Hydro X Series XG7 RGB. According to the manufacturer, several models are planned to be released that are compatible with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 and 3080 Founders Edition, as well as Asus Strix, MSI Ventus and other cards developed by Nvidia partners based on reference models.
Waterblock cores are made of copper, nickel-plated, and supplemented with aluminum parts anodized in black. Hydro X Series XG7 RGB water blocks cover the entire area of the card, with an area of more than fifty ribs forming microchannels above the GPU. The cover of the waterblock is made of transparent acrylic plastic.
The kit includes an aluminum plate fixed to the back of the circuit board. The manufacturer notes that the waterblock is applied thermal paste and glued heat conducting gaskets, which speeds up and simplifies installation.
The backlighting on 16 addressable RGB LEDs completes the picture. The backlight is compatible with Corsair iCUE software and Corsair iCUE RGB controller.
The manufacturer does not name prices or start dates, offering to register on the site to be notified.
