MSI 1080 sea hawk EK water cooling solution questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey i have just bought a MSI 1080 Sea Hawk EK card but im not sure what i need to get a the water cooling connected

Ive looked at the predator 240 with the QDC tubes.
But do i need to buy specific fitting/adaptors to the grafic card too or is the predator 240 with some coolant enough, i allready have a cooler on my CPU so i dnt need it for that part.

If there is an other solution that is smarter i would like to know too.

Hope there is some helpfull souls out there, cause i getting tired of searching for what solutions people use.

You have two approaches to liquid cool your PC.

One is with AIO, All-In-One system, like the EK-XLC Predator. AIO solution is easy to install and does not require you to deal with liquid.

The second approach is the custom loop. This means you assemble everything on your own, and you also pour liquid into the system.

Now, MSI GTX 1080 SEA HAWK EK X is a, "custom loop" card, it is meant to be installed in the custom loop. For a custom loop you usually need 4 basic components:

1. Water block (which is already on your card)
2. Radiator (with fans)
3. Reservoir
4. Pump

All those parts are connected with fittings and tubing. Here is the page where we explain the idea of the custom loop: https://www.ekwb.com/solutions/custom-loop/

You can also use our Custom Loop Configurator, where the system will guide you through the selection of the required parts: https://www.ekwb.com/custom-loop-configurator/
