asus gtx 1080 turbo

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
so... i think i might of messed up. i purchased this asus gtx 1080 turbo not doing the proper research and didn't think i would have a problem getting a water block for it. well i was wrong. i bought it from new egg and their return policy is replacement only. now i'm stuck with this card to keep or sell on ebay.
my original intention was to get a card that i could water cool.
i can only find universal gpu water blocks that might be compatible with this card.
from the backside of this card the pcb looks like it is a mini card with a turbo cooler on it. i dont know much about universal gpu blocks.
I was wondering if anybody knows much about these cards and a procedure to water cool it, or should i just sell it on ebay? thanks for any help on this matter.

Well, you could always do "The Mod" and connect an AIO to it. But if that's not the route that you're trying to take, then selling that card off sounds like the better option. For the next card, I'd advise checking out the GPU block that you want, and basing your purchase off of the compatibility list for said block.

EkWB should have made full cover block for 1080. they got for strix version so why not for turbo version. dig around: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/catalogsearch/result/?q=GtX+1080 dunno if they fit with turbo model or is it just the cooling that is different for the other models.

Are you sure? That card looks like it's a reference pcb. Any block that would fit an FE card should also fit this card.

Can you take some pictures of the pcb with the heatsink off?

EDIT - I saw your discussion on amazon. Apparently this is NOT a reference pcb. That's interesting. Now I really wonder what asus has changed.

That hurts. EK did publish their 1080 road map a while ago and there was no mention of this card. But, it would have been natural to assume it was a reference design. If you can distinguish the differences, you may be able to use another block. Tough spot.

I guess it's water under the bridge. I wished i bought it from amazon, i would of just returned it. but i bought it from new egg and they will only replace it..
So i put it in my home theater / vr pc .
I'll buy a different one for Christmas or just wait for a TI model for my water cooled pc.
At least i didn't pay $800.00 + for it. got it for $649.00

Are you sure that the PCB is not identical to the FE? DId you try to install full-cover reference Waterblock? The CB has the exact same dimensions as the FE... I am ondering because I am considering this card as well since there is a good deal on it here in Germany.

Iv'e quit worrying about it, but if you find a full cover block let us all know. I put this card in my home theater pc and am thinking about buying different card or cards for my water cooled pc

Apparently asus decided to use some different caps from the FE. I still haven't seen an actual pic of the pcb for this board, but people are reporting that some caps are higher and impede the FE waterblock installation.
