Full cover for Gigabyte GTX 780 rev 2.0

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When gigabyte make rev 2.0 old full cover blocks doesnt fit.
Can I use titan full cover, and use thick thermal pad, or using small piece of copper with thinner thermal pad in missing place(red rectangle), most of mounts fits (green circle - my mounts)


Original cooler missing that two elements on right:


Have U any advice for me?

I bought this card month ago, when I didn't thinging about water cooling.

Either get a different card, wait for a water block or use a universal block.

Using a full cover block that is not designed for it is a good way to wreck an expensive card. I doubt you could even get the Titan block on, its mount points would be pressing onto components. In particular the centre right mount stand off would be crushing two caps.

Ek might eventually make a block for it like they did for the 680 SOC but it won't be for a while, they are super busy making blocks for new reference cards

Maybe, but now: "Sorry, we have no plans to make any waterblocks for this position. Thank you."

Are U sure thats they are not removable? Its look easy to remove. If not, some work with dremel and it's gone.

The standoffs are just screwed in but it doesn't change the fact there are two large caps in the middle of the card. The only way to clear them would be to cut a large amount of copper away from the Titan block but you would be into the water channels before it fit.

These blocks are designed for specific component layouts. When there are caps in those positions on other boards the block is constructed with a bridge to cross over the caps. The titan block does not have a bridge because there was no caps to cross over.

It won't work sorry man.

Compare how little difference there is between a ref 780 and 780ti ... and still EK is adamant the titan block won't fit safely to the Ti
