Since you already have the H-75 I would definitely give it a shot and see if it can do the job on the 1080ti. I have heard from a couple people that it (it being the 1080ti) runs on the warm side compared to previous Pascal releases. But thats just word of mouth and they could be full of you know what. But keep in the back of your mind that it may need a little more cowbell for cooling if the temps are on the warmish side after your install.

Yeah I had a mid plate on my 980ti (eVGA sc) and required a shim. Still got it 25x25x1.5mm

I saw the Gamernexus diy 1080ti hybrid where they used an eVGA hybrid AIO, but that has a stepped copper base so no shim needed,

I can't work out by pictures if I will need a shim if I go for the founders edition and try to leave the midplate and fan assesmbly in place like Gamernexus did

If you can readily get your hands on them they are typically cheap. Better to have them on hand and not need them than vice versa. That way you dont have to wait on anything and its done right either way. thumb.gif

I just got a MSI 1080ti Amor OC. Would the G10 fit on it?
post #6175 of 6246
I am putting together a Kraken G10 on a EVGA 1080 TI FE. I have ordered Enzotech MOS-C10 Forged Copper MOSFET Heatsinks, and Koolance HTS-GP001P Video RAM Heat Sinks.

I can't seem to figure out if I need a shim, and what size the shim is if needed. It looks like I only need the shim if I keep the shroud and backplate on. Is that correct?

It looks like this guy skips the shim, although it's not a Founders card.

Any help would be appreciated.

I was able to piece together information via this forum, and reddit.

Some people are choosing not to use a copper shim. Some are using it. I am assuming that if you are not using it, you must take the midplate off. I will find out when I take mine apart. 20x25x2mm is the best fit, with 25x25 working. It sounds like 2mm may stick up over the lip a little, it may be closer to 1.8mm.

Last night I ordered multiple different thickness shims in the 20x25mm size. I called the company this morning at 8am, and they already had them cut and were shipping today. I will let you know the quality of the shims when I get them, and more importantly which is the best fit.

I found out that it is possible to keep the original fan on the card, and just use the G10 bracket. I have heatsinks for the vram, but maybe keeping the stock fan is a better choice. Does anyone have any thoughts on that?

In case anyone is interested. The Kraken G12 is out and compatible with the latest Xx2 coolers from NZXT where the G10 isnt. Its also backwards compatible with the. X41 X40 etc. Supposed to be easier to install as well.

I have not come across this yet. glad to see they are doing this. It never made any sense to me that they were building new AIOs that were not compatible. Nice catch

As for easier to install. I have never thought the G-10 was difficult at all, the whole concept is quite simple.

Just repeating what the marketing says tbh smile.gif I didnt find it too bad after watching a couple of videos but Id imagine it gets easier after the nth time doing it as well.

Does anyone have a picture of this shim installed?

I just bought a Kraken G10 for my 1080ti FE and I will be installing a Corsair H75 on it.
