Agreed. The included spreader works well and I've had great success with applying nice even coats.

I did the shunt mod to my first pair of 1080 Ti cards that were vertically mounted. All I can say is be careful and it shouldn't be a problem. I was paranoid and fabricated some barriers out of the plastic from the CLU packaging to prevent any possible runoff from continuing down the PCB. I'm glad I did, because the next day if found one bead of CLU sitting on the plastic. Admittedly, I was a bit aggressive with the CLU application.

Before applying CLU, I coated the PCB surrounding the shunts with liquid tape and then I used liquid tape to glue the barriers to the PBC just below the shunts.

Hope that helps.


When I can afford some Conductonaut (been so broke) I'm going to coat the surrounding areas and sides of the shunts with nail polish, let it dry, apply the Conductonaut with a Q-Tip, saw a video how to do it properly, put water block back on, hoping to have no issues.

My card is vertical as well.

Edit: Conductonaut because I heard it's thicker than CLU and someone else who used it moved the card around and it never budged. smile.gif

Does anyone know of the difference between getting a founders edition from EVGA 1080ti, getting the hybrid waterblock, and the $810 EVGA geforce 1080ti hybrid sc2? Are they essentially the same thing? Im asking cause one is cheaper than the other. I could step up to the sc2 but then id be subject to silicone lottery, also my geforce hits 1979 clocks at 100% fan speed completely stock ( no voltage, no paste )game stable in mass effect. What should I do? I could cancel my B+H order for the hybrid waterblock but I think I have a decent clocker on my hands.

Yes they are essentially the same. As they both feature the same maximum power target as the Founders Edition. (300 w).

The hybrid does have a slightly higher out-of-box boost frequency. But you could set that up yourself by overclocking your card.

So essentially; yes they are exactly the same.

Evga also doesn't bin these cards; so it's even quite possible you could get a non-hybrid which after overclocked, boosts higher than the hybrid.

See my above post again, I edited, with a 1979 max boost already should I stick with what I got? What oc could I expect on water roughly?

I have used both. I used Conductonaut on the cards that I'm using now and CLU on the previous cards. Truthfully, they are about the same. I actually think CLU is a tad easier to spread/apply. I do like the included fine tip nozzle that comes with the Conductonaut, but you need to be careful with it. I accidentally squirted LM all over the place the first time I tried to use it.

I have a few extra tubes of CLU and wouldn't mind hooking you up.

I dip my finger in rubbing alcohol, let it dry and then use my finger like an ape.

The only compound I use a tool for (nylon qtips) is for spreading liquid metal. Otherwise I finger paint it on like a chimp.

I found a good way to apply Cond. on the shunts is to put a little drop directly on it and then spread it with the flat end of a cable ties.

The Q-Tip is fine to spread LM on a larger surface like a heatspreader. But i wouldnt use it for the shunt mod for two reasons:

-The Q-Tip is bigger than the shunt, that makes it unprecise and chances are higher you spill the LM somewhere you dont want it.

-The Q-Tip is good to apply a thin layer, but you want more LM on the shunts. I applied almost a little hill on both shunts and still get a TDP at about 75 during gaming and up to 100 in heavy benchmarking like FS Ultra. I think danger is higher to apply not enough LM than to apply too much.

And dont forget to scratch the metal ends of the shunts clean, there might be a coating on it that will work against your mod if you dont remove it.
