MSI’s Sea Hawk cards are for those looking to liquid cool their GeForce RTX GPUs

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Sea Hawk EK X

MSI has announced new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti cards for those looking for something to go with their custom liquid cooling setup. The Sea Hawk X and Sea Hawk EK X are premium offerings for those who really want to push their cards to their limits with some additional cooling.

The GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti Sea Hawk X are outfitted with a closed-loop liquid cooler based on the Corsair H55. It offers full coverage of the components on the PCB and actually employs a sort of hybrid cooling solution. While the GPU is cooled via a water block and 120mm radiator, the memory and VRM components are kept cool using a fan built into the cooling shroud.

The radiator features aluminum fins and a low-profile design that measures just 52mm thick. It’s relatively compact footprint also means that you should be able to find room to mount it in your case quite easily.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Sea Hawk X boasts a 1,515MHz base clock and 1,860MHz boost clock, the same as the Founders Edition specification save for a 60MHz bump to the boost clock. Similarly, the 2080 Ti model has 1,350MHz base clock and 1,755MHz boost clock, versus the 1,635MHz boost clock on the Founders Edition model.

On the other hand, the Sea Hawk EK X models require a bit more work to set up. They’re outfitted with a full cover water block from EK, featuring a central inlet split flow cooling design and a nickel-plated base to prevent corrosion.

Finally, the EK X cards are equipped with the same base and boost clocks as the Sea Hawk X models.

There’s no word on price and availability yet from MSI.
