GIGABYTE, the world’s leading premium gaming hardware manufacturer, today announced the GeForce GTX 980 WATERFORCE (GV-N980WAOC-4GD) that comes with an all-In-one, closed-loop liquid cooler. Built on the performance-proven GTX 980 Maxwell GPU, the GTX 980 WATERFORCE combines GIGABYTE exclusive technologies, high-quality components, and innovations to deliver the smooth gaming at ultimate 4K resolutions in a virtually silent operation compared to conventional air cooling. Through GPU Gauntlet Sorting, the graphics card is forged with only the top-notch GPU cores to bring out the maximum processing power for going super overclock.

With the pre-installed water cooling unit and radiator connected with a pair of SFP tubes, the GTX 980 WATERFORCE can be easily fitted in most chassis without the hassle of complicated installation or maintenance. The full-coverage cooling module covers not only the GPU, but also the VRAM and MOSFET to actively dissipate all the heat in an efficient manner, while requiring no additional fan like other competitions for a much enhanced acoustic performance.

The 45 cm robust SFP tubes can effectively prevent the leak and fare a lower coolant evaporation rate. Coupled with the 120 mm silent fan and the low-noise pump, the GTX 980 WATERFORCE is able to perform up to 38.8% cooler than the reference cooling in operating temperature for ultra-stable gaming in near silence.
