While waiting on availability from EVGA I decided to start looking at what other manufacturers and 3rd parties might have available. In doing so I saw that next week NZXT is releasing a new GPU adapter for 10 series cards. So I figured I'd start asking around as to which would be the better option to water cool an EVGA 1080ti FE card.

Prices are close enough that I'm not really worried about it. I also figure I'd ask the warranty question since a 3rd party wouldn't be an EVGA part upgrading and EVGA part.

Naturally, I'd prefer to simply be able to buy the EVGA hybrid kit but those never seem to be available.

Thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks

You can do a custom cooling loop eg www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx...er-cooling,4975.html

or a Hybrid - www.gamersnexus.net/guides/2831-liquid-c...80-ti-hybrid-project

or use EVGAs kit - www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=400-HY-5388-B1

or wait for the Asus Poseiden version of gtx1080Ti - www.pcauthority.com.au/News/456922,asus-...0-ti-video-card.aspx

It depends on 1) how financial you are and 2) how handy at installing the kits you are.

Being that I already have a 1080ti FE from EVGA I'm mostly looking at kits. While I am decently handy, I don't know if I want to attempt building a custom loop on my first attempt. So that is why I was looking at the G12 + AIO or the Hybrid Kit.
