But I agree with you best way would be to modify the waterblock.

If it already has no warranty, I perfectly understand. I recently had to weigh out a very similar option, but my card is "only" a $450 1070 SC (and has the warranty intact).... Hehehe....

EVGA is pretty lenient with their warranty (probably the most lenient out of the AIB partners), but I think even they'd void for this reason. biggrin.gif

I think that should decide everybody for himself.
I just wanted to share my solution.

I think they would even RMA that. They RMA almost everything no problem lol biggrin.gif

That's called "being shady", and tends to be frowned upon here.... If you physically modify portions of the card or cooler, your warranty is toast, accept it.

If you’re doing this really gently I think you can bend them later back up and use the stock cooler.

I already mounted my Bitspower Waterblock, I think any other should fit too.
You just have to make sure the pins make no contact with the block or each other which could lead in a shortage.
I did put a thermal pad on top just to make sure they 100% can’t get contact.

I also checked the rest of the pcb as I had a spare 1080 Ti laying around couldn’t find any other differences which would block the waterblock from mounting.

Will try the card out tomorrow.

Did the 6 pin header next to the power connectors interfere with your block?

No it did not.
