Phanteks added a new water block for use with AMD processors to its current line of CPU liquid coolers. The Glacier C350A is compatible with any aftermarket open-loop water cooling system that uses standard G1/4 type fittings. The polished clear acrylic cover is fastened to a nickel-plated copper base. The Glacier C350A water block is available with anodized satin black or a mirrored chrome accents.
Phanteks’ integrated RGB lighting is compatible with all Phanteks RGB-equipped cases and motherboards fitted with industry standard 4-pin RGB lighting headers.
The 70 x 70 x 4mm nickel plated copper base features densely packed rows of integrated 0.4mm-wide cooling fins that stand 5mm tall. Fittings for both hard and soft tube applications are sold separately.
As with all Phanteks' water blocks, the company uses o-rings made of Viton. Viton offers improved durability and an overall superior seal compared to those made of regular rubber. Viton is an elastomer commonly used in a number of sealing applications, including industrial use and the automotive and aerospace industries. Viton seals are popular due to their excellent compression properties and resistance to most oils and petroleum-based fuels and lubricants. Water block seals made of Viton are also resistant to oxidation, ozone, UV exposure, fungus, and mold. This material has an effective operating range between 5°F and 400°F, making it an excellent choice for applications such as GPU water cooling.
