17th September 2015 - MSI, world leading manufacturer of gaming and overclocking hardware, is proud to announce the result of a unique partnership with Corsair at the Tokyo Game Show 2015. Combining MSI's expertise in graphics cards and Corsair's closed loop liquid-cooling solution, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti SEA HAWK was born. This latest addition to the legendary MSI Hawk graphics cards family provides outstanding gaming performance at low temperatures and low noise levels.

The MSI GTX 980 Ti SEA HAWK utilizes the popular Corsair H55 closed loop liquid-cooling solution. The micro-fin copper base takes care of an efficient heat transfer to the high-speed circulation pump. The low-profile aluminum radiator is easy to install and equipped with a super silent 120 mm fan with variable speeds based on the GPU temperature. However, to get the best performance, the memory and VRM need top-notch cooling as well. Therefore, the GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK is armed with a ball-bearing radial fan and a custom shroud design to ensure the best cooling performance for all components.

The advanced thermal solution, combined with high-quality components, enables the card to run at much higher frequencies compared to standard GeForce GTX 980Ti variants. The graphics core can reach up to 1291 MHz with GPU Boost 2.0 technology. The graphics card is also provided with 6GB GDDR5 memory at 7096 MHz. These specifications and the presence of NVIDIA G-Sync technology guarantee a smooth gaming experience, even when using a surround setup with multiple high-resolution monitors.

A powerful graphics card needs powerful software. Even though the GTX 980Ti SEA HAWK boasts some serious clock speeds out-of-the-box, the MSI Afterburner overclocking utility allows users to go even further. Explore the limits with Triple Overvoltage, custom profiles and real-time hardware monitoring. Afterburner also adds an in-game FPS counter and can be customized with downloadable user skins. Stay in charge with the mobile app for Android or iOS, there is no need to get out of the game.
