Well I have some experience with these AIO's:
780 Ti + NZXT Kraken G10 + H55 single fan: 55-60C
" " dual fan push-pull: 48-53C
MSI 980 Ti 6G Gaming + H55 dual fan push pull: about the same, we are talking about the same TDP here, so same should apply for 1080 Ti.
MSI 980 Ti 6G Gaming + x41 dual fan push-pull 42-47C
Try adding a second fan if you haven't already.
The x41 is hands down a better AIO, I would keep the fan's at an inaudible 50% RPM and it was still at least 7C cooler than the H55. It's a lot thicker than H55 as well.
Also, I'm sure you know this but, you want this AIO pushing this heat out of the case!
You wouldn't believe it but I've seen people posting their AIO cooled GPU set up with the radiator pulling heat into the case and expelling it right on to the VRM fan and you just want to do a line of face palm emoji's.
I have an x41. I actually have it blowing into the case but it's blowing at exhaust fans. I did a open case test too.
It runs great, at the temperatures you're saying. 50% fan speed at 42C to 47C. It's when I run a custom bios at 330 watts it gains an extra 4C or 5C. That kind of makes sense, if you get 4.5C for every 10 watts, at 300 watts you'd be at 45C and 330 watts you'd be a 49.5C.
I have it in push pull also. I'll probably try different things later today. But turning on the blower fan higher got me at 48C which helped a lot. Must be cooling the midplate. Got to find means of extracting heat in other ways.Edited by SlimJ87D - 4/5/17 at 3:52am
