Thanks! I'm pretty stoked... this will be the first time I have nabbed a top card (in the current lineup). I tend to go for the lower or middle tier card. Pretty excited smile.gif Shipping has it arriving sometime early next week biggrin.gif

Update...

Alright, so the GTX 1080 has arrived smile.gif and I have to say, I have been quite busy putting it through the paces. In order to prepare for its arrival, I had to redo the loop (and clean it out). I really tried to make this loop as clean as possible, while also making it super easy to add to, once the 1080 block arrives (*Spoiler Alert* I have a bitspower block on its way, and will be here next wednesday!)

Additionally, I have been working on a new desk. With my recent move across the state, my new space wasn't as conducive to my previous desk. So I made a new one. It is 6' x 2' and absolutely perfect for what I have and need. So enough of me talking, and on to the pics!thumb.gif




All nice and wrapped up...



I honestly wasn't sure what I thought of the FE shroud design, but up close and in the hand it is definitely a nice piece of kit biggrin.gif


I didn't get any pics of the tear down and re-build of the loop sadly... but I do have things back up and running an d lit up. It's too bad the GEFORCE LED couldnt be RGB rolleyes.gif Oh well... the Bitspower block I have coming is, and will match everything just nicely




Here are a couple shots of the new Desk (computer throne) that I put together.. sorry for the poor quality, lighting is terrible where the desk is right now frown.gif



And here is everything all put together (for now..) All that is left is to get the 1080 underwater. I am trying to decide if I want to go with black coolant again.. or if I should try something else, like White or Red or maybe a silver??? Anyways, let me know what you think.. this project is nearing completion biggrin.gif

Update Time! Many Pics biggrin.gif

I received in the mail my waterblock for the GTX1080, and cannot be more happy! I had intended to get an EK block, but couldnt pass up an opportunity to snag the Bitspower fullcover block when I saved 50 dollars in the process.. block, back plate and rgb setup for less than the cost of the EK block itself? YES PLEASE... Anyways, on to the pics...



















I added the last pic to show the (relative) performance of the system, as well as what the block brings. The 1080 is an FE card, and with the stock cooler the temps would sit at 83C, and the clocks would eventually settle in the 1700 range. With the block, I have had a max temp (so far) of 40C and have been able to maintain a decent overclock of 2050mhz and +350mhz on the Ram (haven't tried for more yet). Anyways, this build is pretty much done...unless I decide to get an i7 or maybe go x99 thinking.gif ...but, I will be getting some better, more professional glamour shots to cap off this project. Let me know what you think biggrin.gif
