I had just installed the H55 on my 1080 and was hitting 57C at first, but a day later, it started getting right back up to around 60C. I think my 1080 is a bit hotter running and paired with the room temp around 28C, it reaches the same temps. So I decided to do what someone else did on this thread and installed my 6700K's H105. Now it barely reaches 50C in The Witcher.

A side note, I installed the H55 on my 6700K and fully expected I'd have to lower my clock speed. I was very pleased to see I'd only gained about 5C.

Oh, really? Well, that's the exact opposite result the review sites got; the Hybrid should've cruised on by that H55. Hmm...maybe MSI messed up mounting on their Sea Hawks, but you were able to secure yours on better?

See, that's also weird. Why would a 180W TDP card show nearly identical temperatures as a 250W TDP card? I mean, ambient temperatures, fan speed, and a load of other variables here, too, but that is eerily close for a 40% increase in TDP.

And, then a 10C difference going from a 120mm to a 240mm. That's sizeable and more than I anticipated. So...maybe the radiator is also a thermal bottleneck here (at least on the Gen4 Asetek's you're using).

Man...we are certainly in the wild west of GPUs on AIOs, at least in terms of testing. We need one review site to grab all the AIOs they have and to run some tests on a GTX 980 Ti they have laying around, hahaha.

Yeah, I was pretty disappointed. I wouldn't care as much if the 1080 didn't down clock itself out of fear every 5-10C.

Has anyone tested Kraken G10 on MSI 1080 Gaming?

I'm wondering could this middle plate be left on because VRM cooling could be good enough with Kraken's fan.

Very interesting...

I also have an H105 for my CPU and was thinking about doing that same exact swap, and was also concerned about the CPU temp rising. The only difference is I have a 4930k compared to your 6700k. I think mine is gonna run a bit warmer due to more cores unfortunately.

If you dont mind me asking, what did you have your 980 TI clocked at when you were hitting the upper 50's? Were you above or below 1500 MHz boost?

Fits fine on bothe the 1070 and 1080 gaming x. No shims needed and both plates can stay on.

You should definitely be getting lower temps on the 1080. When i tried mine it was much cooler than the 980ti even with an oc.

Yep. Fits just fine. If you remove the padding from the G10 backplate you don't even need to remove the MSI backplate. The only thing you have to remove is the heatsink/fan on the GPU. Leave everything else as-is.

The H55 handles mine at 1.4v like a champ. Highest I've seen is 72C.

As for the 980Ti Hybrid, I had it at 1502MHz at 1.212v.

Great! Can you see VRAM temps with GPU-Z? This is probably the most tempting combo. Gaming X + Kraken G10 and Corsair H90. VRAM chips' temps are pretty much the only concern. Did you put any shimms on the GPU or did you just slam the cooler on it? smile.gif
