Well that's rather disappointing. I came here in search of information regarding the waterblock to use. I am sure there will be more people buying these cards, please reconsider.

Now that we have more people with SC2 cards, there should be a full cover block...

Nvidia sells hydro copper version of this card. How hard is it to offer the waterblock for sale for those who already bought a card??...

I contacted the EVGA support regarding this matter and I'm waiting for a reply. I'll post it here.

Honestly, if they are refusing to release a block I'll just de-solder that fan connector and use the EK FE block instead as is seems to match the layout bar the connector.

I can not understand this reasoning of not wanting to get a waterblock for this card and suddenly oblige those who buy it to integrate it in their watercooling configuration, to resell it to buy a sc black or FTW3 ....

I am not sure I understood your reply correctly, but I assume you are asking why I did not get a card with a waterblock from the beginning? Well Let's say I made a mistake. I was thinking the hybrid cooling solution (for me) would be ideal. But after looking around these forums I realized I would like to try and build my own custom loop. Thus unfortunately i'm facing the issue with waterblock now.

Whats frustrating is that nvidia does have a waterblock for this card as evidenced by them selling hydrocopper version. However I suspect the hydrocoper version of the SC2 card actually comes without that fan header so that the can use the standard waterblock on it. That's why they don't want to sell it separately, it would not be compatible with unmodded card. Just my opinion...

No I was not talking about you but rather the choice of EK not wanting to do a waterblock for the 1080Ti Sc2

This was my exact question to EVGA support. If or when this block is released, will it fit our SC2 cards as I think they just removed the second header and used the titan X block. So, let's wait and see.
