Yeah, I'll definitely keep an eye on it. Tried to put in a cancellation actually as I don't believe the card is going to fit in my case like I previously thought. A bit bummed out by it, but if it does arrive and I decide to try and stick it out (maybe some modding) I'll update you guys.
ill trade you for my FE that cost me $770 w tax :/

You can get various types of RTV, ones that can be peeled off easily (in this case you would want that for RTV reasons), or some that can hold a heatsink to a VRM chip if you glued the side of it, etc.

thanks for the explanation

ok, let me put it like this: if i had nail polish and that RTV at home, i would use rtv. But for me nail polish is good enough, not to run to the next store to buy rtv.

You can also use gasket seal maker black RTV from a auto store. It's what is used to hold lid heat spreaders onto CPU

Look at the images here, someone actually has images of them applying and also pealing off a RTV equal.

What about kapton (polyimide) tape. Some people who delid put that instead of nail polish to protect from possible LM spillage.

should be fine, but how good of a sealnt it can be is a concern. I like RTV because it flows, but it isn't harder to clean.

Flashing the BIOS should not be an issue but it's always something to be cautious about if you don't have a 2nd card to revert the card to its original state.

Also, I would be hesitant to flash the BIOS of the 1080 Ti using that of another GPU that has a totally different PCB (power delivery etc.). The FE/factory 1080 Ti may not handle the power as well and could cause issues IMO.

I think some people looked at the power draw here and found it to be safe but not sure.

Would it be an issue if only the GPU die is watercooled and the VRM and VRAM is still cooled using the reference fan? Im basically talking about the evga 1080 hyrbid half shroud method that gamersnexus did
