Premium, high-end, and enthusiast-grade graphics cards these days are available in one of two choices: a compact form factor with the same uncompromising power as the original, or a slim, 1-slot PCB that is cooled with a pre-attached waterblock. It’s not very common, however, that a card would feature both a compact form factor, along with a waterblock attached to the GPU.

That’s exactly what Zotac did with its recently announced GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ArcticStorm Mini.

Based on the 212mm long super compact design of its GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini, the ArcticStorm Mini comes with a full-coverage waterblock that utilizes a nickel-plated direct copper contact (with precision 0.3mm micro-channels for maximum heat extraction).

Adding to its aesthetics is the waterblock’s see through tinted acrylic top, which allows you to see the coolant flow through the top of the block. On top of that, there’s also the card’s overall neutral color design and the presence of a white LED light. Lastly, the waterblock makes use of the standard G 1/4 type fittings, so it’s pretty much compatible with almost all third-party liquid cooling solutions on the market.

As its size denotes, the ArcticStorm Mini is a card that caters to the PC builders and enthusiast who seek the construction of a small form factor PC, while still retaining the option of being able to keep the card’s heat dissipation under wraps via a full system water-cooling solution.

At the time of writing, Zotac had yet to provide an official pricing or information on local availability for the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ArcticStorm Mini.
