The HG10 addresses the vrm with a custom cooling plate which also has a blower fan on the back to blow air across the plate cooling the surface. Not exactly sure whats happening under the shroud of the evga for vrm cooling. All current solutions follow the original solution called The Mod but they each address issues (vrm cooling) with The Mod in different ways. The H10 for NZXT follows The Mod approach by simply having a fan mount over the rear of the card for vrm cooling. Its a stupid simple approach and costs little. EK has the most robust (IMO-dont hate me Evga, just saying) method but really kind of went at it completely different and it does not count as AIO GPU cooling as its more true water cooling parts pre built and filled/sealed but expandible. Once expanded with a prefilled waterblock its really true watercooling ... they just took the custom out of true watercooling. The 240x variants are also custom cooling as they are true water cooling parts just pre built/filled/sealed but can be expanded on by adding more waterlines (unlike Evga which allows quick disconnects prefilled parts) yourself and any gpu block you want.

or something like that tongue.gif

Which EK solution are you talking about? I am interesting in it now!

this one

How exactly does it cool down VRM chips? It could only do that if you would place full WC block on the card. Something like that already existed - Swiftech H220-X and H240-X, but it does not come with GPU + VRM cooling solution either, so I am lost...

Cools the VRM using the blower style fan passing over heat sinks. Its a hybrid cooler, not a full water cooled card like the Fury X.

It doesn't come with blower-style fan anywhere I see. It is just like any other AIO cooler that can be applied either to CPU or GPU, but NOT VRM chips. It makes no difference whether you use this high end EK AIO cooler for GPU or cheaper Corsair AIO cooler for GPU because you need to use The Mod or Corsair's HG10, which means in both cases VRM chips will get crappy cooling, WORSE than from 3rd party air-cooling, which is terrible for longevity of these cards and terrible for OC.

If anyone could take quick measurement of the radiator + fan, I would appreciate it. Want to pull the trigger on two of these but need to make sure they will fit the spot I have designated. Many thanks in advance. I couldn't find this info on the internet or spec sheet. smile.gif

are you responding to my link of the EK product or to Evga hybrid solution?

radiator is the same thickness as a H50/55, the corsair "thin" units

fan is 25mm, but give 27mm give or take because of tolerances

In the chance you were responding to the post about a CPU water cooling being expandable.... well, you would need a GPU waterblock. Because, its an expandable CPU cooler. EK may in the future launch waterblock "kits" with quick disconnect hoses attached, to pair with the 360mm version of thier new AIO CPU cooler
