The guy that posted a picture of the g10 on the 1080 never came back.

Is it possible to keep the backplate when using the g10 on the 1080?

You can keep the back plate. Two options, A. use the NZXT mini backplate on top of the existing back plate but remove the foam pad and B. dont use the NZXT back plate at all, use just the bolts, adding washers if needed.

Yes I used a 1.6mm sized shim on my evga card and it works great, using a Corsair H55 AIO with 2x corsair SP 120mm pwm fans in push/pull config, getting low 20c idle and load temps in the 40s

Awesome! I'll do this with my upcoming 1080 EVGA FTW.

I bought some shim from ebay.. tough to find the right measurements.. The shim will need some dremel trim!thumb.gif

Website for measurements for the GPU

Another cool video for the mod: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weV0FlahyDo&feature=youtu.be

Bought some Artic thermal pads for the front and backplate as well to replace the oem stuff underneath the plates.

https://www.arctic.ac/worldwide_en/thermal-pad.html.. I used this in my laptop and killed the temperature by a lot.

Waiting for my MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X so I can swap my G10 and Kraken X41 from my GTX 770 to the new card.


And I'm sure someone is going to ask why I would spend the premium price for the MSI card. The answer to that is simply that it has the best cooling setup for the other components. Heat spreader on the VRAM and heatsink for the VRM. Haven't seen any other card provide complete cooling solutions for both.

Just pop the G10 and X41 on it and it's good to go.

You may need a shim. I got the evga FE that boosts to 2,088mhz, and did not bother to mount the g10 on it yet, simply because the consensus seems to say that there won't be much OC headroom added.

Let me know how your experience goes, please. I am still looking for a good enough reason to mount the g10. I would have done it if it wasn't a bare dye - possibility of crushing it. And if something does go wrong, who long how long an RMA would take with the current lack of stock.

Maximum overclocking isn't the only reason to go with the G10.

With the GPU running significantly cooler there will be no GPU throttling. It will run at that maximum boosted setting at all times which gives it more consistent performance especially during extended gaming. It's also much more quiet, and dumps less heat into the room. (which is important to me since I live in Texas and my study faces south, directly at the sun).

I don't see it as being any more risky than it was when I put the G10 and X41s on my two GTX 770s.

My 770s would exceed 90C under air and stay under 50C with the G10. I suspect that the 1080 will stay under 45C with the G10 and X41. It may not give amazing 2.1+GHZ boost speeds, but it will be quiet, cool, and never throttle back the speed.

And since I already have the bracket, cooler, and thermal paste it's a free conversion for me.

OK. Let me know how it goes for you. Do you plan on removing the backplate? If not, how will you ensure the screws end up being long enough? Keep me updated, thanks.

I also came from a 2 gpu setup than initially ran hot - crossfire 290s. The g10 kept my 290s at 42c load. so I have two brackets and two aio laying around

Don't plan on removing the backplate. I didn't need to with my current MSI card.



I doubt that this card is so much thicker that I can't do the same. Worst case scenario I'll leave the NZXT backplate off and use some small washers instead.
