Has there been any word anywhere (since launch) when the request key website will be available?

ah! thanks for the reminder.

I forgot to ask exactly about that part.


I've been using AIO for a while, but this time I want to go full Pro using a real EK kit for both CPU and SLI 1080

So, which Parts do I need to order from the EK website for the "Water SLI" to connect the two GTX 1080 block to the rest of the kit?


This is the list I've come up with so far:

- EK-KIT X240
- Two EK-FC1080 GTX
- extra bottle of cooling liquid
- (unknown size adapters and fittings to branch out for GPU cooling) tongue.gif
- (unknown parts for Water SLI?) redface.gif

I also know that there are no HB for more than 2 way SLI (and EK is making HB bridges) biggrin.gif

Somebody can do an experiment ... and do before and after temps with and without backplate with active cooling on it?





as the 1080 dont have any VRM/MEM chip on the back of the pcb other than 2 pieces on the gpu part and 1 that only have have thermal pad..
i think the backplate is doing more harm than good on the card itself.

Talking about heat dissipation.. as its not transferring no heat to the backplate (bigger surface metal area) at all, the back of the card have no ventilation no nothing probably raising temps even more..

I have the EVGA GTX 1080 FE arriving at my home in just a few minutes. I'm struggling to decide whether or not to keep it.

I don't plan to overclock or boost the card, but prefer to have the fan speeds on a 1:1 curve (i.e. 60C temperature = 60% fan speed).

Does the reference design still get ridiculously hot under these conditions?
I really don't want my GPU running at over 70 consistently, but I find the custom coolers announced thus far visually unattractive and have had bad experiences with minor quirks with previous custom card solutions (whining noises and such).

Mine was around 65-70c with the fan on auto when i tried it on air before installing the waterblock. If you dont mind the sound the fan makes it shouldnt be a problem.

The EK backplate for my TX was a nightmare, never fit quite right and had to use extra pads to make contact plus an additional $35 when the EVGA 1080 will come with a perfectly good one that I prefer the looks of.

Looking at pictures of both looks like there are 4 common screw holes and the ek backplate comes with M2.5x7 size screws. Should be possible and will go to the hardware store and get a couple types of that size screws to be ready.

If I'm not incorrect, the backplate for the FE-version don't play well with EK block.
