Thermaltake VGA Water Block for ASUS STRIX-GTX 980
Thermaltake’s new Pacific V-GTX 980 VGA Water Block is a full cover waterblock compatible only with ASUS STRIX-GTX980, delivering extreme cooling performance and compatibility for custom PC builders. Featuring 0.7mm internal fin construction, the Pacific V-GTX Series is manufactured with CNC machined copper base, fits most of G1/4 fittings. A universal mounting mechanism offer error-free as well as no-tools installation, providing the ultimate in cooling performance.
 
Tt LCS Certified is a Thermaltake exclusive certification applied only to products that pass the design and hardcore enthusiasts standards that a true LCS chassis should hold to. The Tt LCS certification was created so that we at Thermaltake can indicate to all power users which chassis have been tested to be best compatible with extreme liquid cooling configurations, ensuring you get the best performance from the best features and fitment.
 

 
Mirror-finished CU Base
Made in Taiwan, the Pacific V-GTX 980 VGA Water Block’s specially machined copper base with nickel coating prevents corrosion and fully complies with Thermaltake’s highest quality standards. The mating surface to the CPU sports an absolute mirror polish. In combination, these features provide exceptional heat transfer and anti-corrosion protection for the most demanding use conditions.
 
Mirror-finished CU Base
The coolant flow path includes all critical components. Proper cooling of all the critical components contributes to overclocking stability and reliable operations. The block covers the entire PCB, leaving no components exposed to possible damages during handling.
 
Outstanding Micro-channel Structure
The Pacific V-GTX 980 VGA Water Block is designed with a compact form factor featuring 0.7mm micro-channel fin construction for optimal clearance and extreme heat dissipation.
 
Remarkable Expansion
Designed to fit ASUS Strix-GTX 980 with universal mounting mechanisms, the Pacific V-GTX 980 allows enthusiasts to build superior water cooling systems from an aesthetic standpoint as well as incorporate modular chassis upgrades for the future.



Thermaltake recommends the following steps to be taken before using the Pacific series radiators and water blocks
  1. To ensure a clean loop, flush and rinse your radiators and water blocks with distilled water prior to use.
  2. Do not use tap water or distilled water as your coolant, it may harm your loop and reduce performance.
  3. It is strongly recommended to use market proven pre-mix coolant, such as Thermaltake Coolant 1000. It offers great performance while protecting the entire liquid loop from corrosion.
  4. Before storing your water cooling components, please clean, rinse and dry. This will ensure a longer lifespan for your components.

Thermaltake recommends the following steps to be taken after completing your water loop setup
  1. It is strongly recommended to use market proven pre-mix coolant, such as Thermaltake Coolant 1000. It offers great performance while preventing the entire cooling system – copper, brass, nickel, aluminum, and steel – from corrosion.
  2. Fill the reservoir with coolant and cycle the power on and off several times while the pump pushing the coolant into the loop.
  3. DO NOT let the pump run dry, when there is no liquid entering the pump turn off your power immediately
  4. Fill the reservoir to the top as it will prevent air from going into the pump
  5. If necessary tilt the system slightly from side to side to bleed the air out of the loop.
  6. Place some paper towels under fittings and joining points to test for leaks.
  7. Run the loop with the fill port open for about 24 hours to completely bleed the air out of the loop
