ThermalTake rolled out a pretty niche product; the Pacific V-GTX 10 Series Transparent Water Block for the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 and 1080 graphics cards. While waterblock makers like EK WB routinely create such products, it's still a bit strange to see larger firms like ThermalTake getting into such small niche markets.
This full-cover block features a mirror-finished copper base, a translucent acrylic top, a high water flow design, a 0.5mm micro-channel fin structure, support for G1/4 fittings and a black aluminium backplate.
Pricing and availability is unknown.
Thermaltake together with its premium water cooling partner ASUS is proud to introduce the latest Pacific V-GTX 10 Series Transparent water block, crafted exclusively for the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080/1070 Gaming Graphic Card. The Pacific V-GTX 10 Series, specially designed for virtual reality (VR) gaming system, has complied with the highest “Tt LCS Certified” standard that guarantees the best performance, compatibility and features. The CNC machined copper base can avoid corrosion. Moreover, the aluminum alloy made backplate is used to prevent twist and bow on the PCB. Most importantly, the Pacific V-GTX 10 Series features a 0.5mm internal fin construction with a high-flow water block that allows coolant to flow directly over all critical areas, eventually delivering the ultimate cooling performance.
“We always seek for a chance to build a stronger relationship with our consumers and in turn better understand their needs. From CES 2016 to COMPUTEX 2016, we saw how virtual reality changed gaming, and how this technology created a truly immersive gaming experience for people. We also found how important the liquid-cooling solution is in this market trend. ASUS is one of the most realizable brands in gaming, so it is our great honor to collaborate with them. Together we not only can provide gamers around the world with an unbeatable 4K gaming experience, but can also create a greater e-Sports community,” announced Kenny Lin, President and CEO of Thermaltake.
“We are very excited to partner with Thermaltake to bring the extreme performance of water block cooling to the ROG Strix GTX 1080 and ROG Strix GTX 1070 graphics cards," said Elaine Wen, Senior Director, ASUS Graphics Card Business Unit. "We hope to continue working closely in the future to create even more incredible products that provide the most entertaining experiences to gamers."

Tt LCS Certified is a Thermaltake exclusive certification applied to products that pass the rigorous hardcore enthusiast standards that only the world’s best LCS chassis are held to. The Tt LCS certification was created so that we at Thermaltake can clearly convey to power users and enthusiasts which chassis are built and tested to be best compatible under extreme liquid cooling configurations. This ensures you get the best performance, compatibility and features.
Features of the Thermaltake Pacific V-GTX 10 Series Transparent Water Block:
Mirror-Finished CU Base
The specially machined copper base prevents corrosion and fully complies with Thermaltake’s highest quality standards. The mating surface to the GPU has a mirror finish, providing exceptional heat transfer for the most demanding use conditions.
High Water Flow Design
The coolant flow path includes all critical components. Proper cooling of these components contributes to overclocking stability and reliable operation. The block covers the entire PCB, leaving no components exposed to possible damage during handling.
Unique Micro-Channel Structure
The Pacific V-GTX 10 Series Transparent is designed with a compact form factor featuring 0.5mm micro-channel fin construction for optimal clearance and extreme heat dissipation. The copper base fits most G1/4 fittings.
Special Design Backplate
The aluminum alloy made backplate features 4mm thick to prevent twist and bow on the PCB.
Designed to fit ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1080/1070 with a universal mounting mechanism, the Pacific V-GTX 10 Series Transparent allows enthusiasts to build superior water cooling systems from an aesthetic standpoint as well as incorporate modular chassis upgrades for the future.
