Is there any news about getting a water block for the EVGA 1080 TI SC2? (11G-P4-6593)
It doesn't use the reference PCB so none of the current blocks will work with it. I can't possibly be the only one wanting one.

I have the same card, and would definitely be interested in a water block for this card.

I compared pictures of the reference pcb to the SC2 and the Vrm section, mounting holes and 98% of the PCB are identical. They moved the voltage control chips to the back side and added 9 small Thermal Sensors. Since the ICX cooler is Identical for the SC Black(Ref board) and SC2 the water block should work. It's the back plate that might be a problem.

I'll try to have a bit more info.

I received my info. On the picture below you'll see the second header on the left. This is what is blocking the compatibility.

Here is a picture of new fe waterblock, looks like there is nothing important next to this fan header (near the ek sticker on the waterblock), it is possible to make it compatible with a simple mod to the waterblock or to the card

Thanks for looking into this! I was wondering what the difference was between this and the stock PCB/FE waterblock besides the fan header.

I currently have 2 of the SC2 cards but I'll probably swap them for the FTW3s once y'all release the water blocks for those.

So is it just that fan header getting in the way? Is it a simple task to desolder and remove the header?
