Any known compatible method to attach an AIO cooler (Corsair, NZXT, etc) to an EVGA 1080 FTW Card?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been reading about the NZXT G10 and Corsair HG10, but have not found a solid answer to the possibility of connecting it with the EVGA 1080 FTW card. I have a few Corsair AIO coolers lying around and if I had to, have no problem buying a different brand to connect to my card if necessary. Just looking for some solid info on the possibility and compatibility of achieving this.

Thanks!

nzxt says right on their website that it is compatible with the gtx 1080

https://www.nzxt.com/products/kraken-g10-white

edit: be sure to adress VRM cooling if going the kraken g10 route, there are copper heatsinks you can buy that do a good job keeping VRM's cool

From there site it says;

"Compatible with over 24 different reference GPUs and more than 19 AiO cooling solutions"

"Compatibility - Graphic Cards Nvidia: GTX 1080, Titan X, 980Ti, 980, 970, 960, Titan, 780 Ti, 780, 770, 760, 680, 670, 660Ti, 660, 580, 570, 560Ti, 560, 560SE"

What throws me off is reference, FTW is not reference and I do not know if it will fit correctly, that is why I was looking for someone else that has, for sure, used a method to attach a AIO cooler to there FTW card.

I believe I have a top plate on the FTW which should take care of all of the VRMs and what not, just gotta make sure that fan is blowing on them heh.

Found some pics;

id be very confident in saying that theres a good chance they wouldnt change the spacing of the mounting holes on the pcb. That mid plate would work wonders for cooling the VRM's. if you look here you see that they had to modify the midplate to get it to fit properly. it seems like an easy, minor mod to make.

Yah it looks like it wouldn't be a difficult mod at all, but I am looking to retain my warranty, I know EVGA is cool with you changing the heat sink, but I dont know how they would feel about a dremeled top plate haha.

that would definitley void your warranty, but hey this is overclock, its what we do here, haha
