NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti Owner's Club - Page 223

post #2221 of 10870
I'm a little peeved.

There appears to be only one SLI HB Bridge thats 3 slot spacing for two cards; the one made by Nvidia. Unfortunately this specific bridge doesn't fit with EK waterblocks...

Does anyone know of another company that makes a 2-card 3-slot HB Bridge? Evga doesn't, nor zotac, nor MSI, nor Gigabyte...I haven't found one yet. Quite baffling, honestly. It's a fairly common configuration, isn't it? My mobo has only two x16 slots, so I can't move the cards either.

Since I am running 7680 x 1440@60, I'm pretty sure I need the extra bandwidth.

Other options... use an older sli bridge and take a possible performance hit

Maybe another brand waterblock allows fitment of the Nvidia HB bridge (can anyone confirm this, possibly?)

Or, my least favored option, take the bridge apart and hack off the protruding nibs that prevent fitment...

I haven't pulled the trigger on blocks yet, though my monoblock is EK.. wouldn't mind staying in the same brand.. But it's not a dealbreaker if not.

Does the stock backplate need any modifications with EK block?

This is known and they mention on their site. You can take off the plastic shroud off the SLI bridge and it should fit

I've always been leary about hybrid kits because it's just the GPU chip itself that is water cooled, the memory chips etc are air cooled and on an aggressive overclock they will get very hot. Might lesson the life of the card.

Full waterblock with backplate everything is actively cooled under the waterblock and anything under the backplate still gets some passive cooling from it.

Seems a much better option. 2cents.gif

No, you just need to re-use some of the FE coolers screws. Will do this tomorrow and report back. thumb.gif

Yeah, I didn't do enough research before buying the bridge, hence me asking what I asked.

putting a block on also requires running a loop cost lot more than a $119 kit.
The memory is perfectly fine with mid plate/thermal pads and blower fan.

You can attach two ribbon SLI connectors in two way SLI and it'll have the same effect I've read but can't confirm this.

Google is your friend. smile.gif

Edit: This should work as well, it's only as wide as the SLI connectors in two way.

After restoring the default driver settings, I can then change my settings back to what they were before and it will still be at normal idle clocks.

Yeah with cam running, it certainly does that, but usually I've been able to get it to down clock by turning CAM off. I only use it to adjust the pump RPM for when I'm benching or extended gaming sessions. Normally it's operating in set it and forget it mode for me. But in the newest driver, if I turn CAM off (along with the background services it runs) it still keeps my clocks higher.

I didn't try uninstalling CAM and then installing the driver followed by re-installing cam after. May be worth a shot. Are people actually getting higher 3D mark scores and or performance with the latest driver, because I'f not I'm good to leave well enough alone.

Is there any reason to get this when I have a hybrid kit for the 1080 I can adapt?

Any suggestions for installing the 1080 hybrid kit for the Ti? Should I be cutting the 1080 hybrid kit backplate to make it work with the Ti or do you use the Ti backplate and just install the waterblock portion? I guess it depends on how the Nvidia cooler disassembles with its fan location. Can the 1080 hybrid shroud be put back on with the Hybrid LED in white?
