Have you guys tried to fit this cooler through one of the cable holes to water cool the gpu?

No idea if that one will work, but I can tell you that I have a Corsair H75 cooler routed that way. IIRC, I had to remove the plastic cap on the pump/heatsink to fit it through

Perhaps try to get some measurements?

Thanks I emailed EVGA. I couldn't find any measurements whatsoever . the cooler block does look about the same width as the H75 so we shall see.

It should work if the water block is not already assembled to the card.

should have read more closely.
Looks like its about same size as the corsair or kraken coolers

yeah the cooler is the same as the cooler they made for the 900 series cards with the only difference being the shroud and possible the radiator fan, but i can't find any info on that one either.
Anyway i emailed EVGA and they basically said that they don't have the exact measurements but the cooler is designed to fit inside the shroud (like that wasn't already obvious biggrin.gif) . I already made up my mind to buy the 1070 SC + the hybrid cooler so we shall see if it fits. Worst case ill return the cooler or wait until i upgrade to a MITX board.

Thanks

I have this kit in my case, I think you'd be able to do what you want to try. I mounted my rad on the top, as I still had enough clearance even with a front radiator

Thanks . I have a h100i in push/pull with an matx board so i wanted to mount the gpu rad on the second chamber. I can maybe squeeze the rad at the top if i remove some fans rework things etc but id rather not mess with it unless i really have to. I purchased the kit and I will give it a shot. Cant wait. biggrin.gif

Long time PC builder (since 2001 in high school). In order to get this gpu to fit, you need to cut down the pci-e connectors and insulate the exposed metal, the side pairs I didn't think needed it.
