ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm is nearly identical to the rest of their GTX 980 Ti offerings, except when it comes to the cooling setup. We have 2816 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 clocked at 7GHz on a 384-bit memory bus.
We have the GM200 GPU with a Base clock of 1025MHz, which results in a Boost clock of 1114MHz. We were able to squeeze a considerable chunk more speed out of the GPU, which we'll talk about later.
This is where the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm differs from the competition, with its triple-fan cooler and integrated water block that can take some water cooling greatness. We'll take a look around the cooler now.
Here we have the triple 90mm fans keeping your GM200 GPU nice and cool, and boy do they do a good job. We had our card overclocked 200MHz+ past the Boost clock, and it was perfectly stable with the stock air cooling.
Here we can see where you'd hook up your loops to the GTX 980 Ti Arctic Storm.
The water block on the GPU is huge, as you can see from the pictures above.
A closer look at the water block.
If you want to have the GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm in your system, you're going to realize quite quickly that it's a bloody heavy card. ZOTAC includes a brace for your system - yeah, an actual piece of metal that will keep your card from bending after a few months/years in your system.
