I have Zotac 1080 amp extreme, using Corsair H45 (120mm) to cool this gpu with the help of custom made mounting bracket. Earlier idle temps were 42-44c (with fans off) and load temps were 73-75c (triple fans @ 70%). Now it idles at 33c and load temp at 55c.
So, liquid cooling a gpu is best way to silence it.

You have absolutely zero clue on what you're saying. Your claim is solely based on "works on my machine™️, so nothing less will work for you". I have a Raijintek Morpheus slapped on a 1070ti which tops at 49°c @~1000rpm (so plenty of margin to drop fan speeds if I want), and even on stock coolers proper airflow goes a long way, so you have plenty of options before jumping staight to watercooling.

Also, an X60 dead silent? One of the noisiest AiO pumps ever reviewed is dead silent? I don't think dead silent means what you think it means.

Have you ever heard Tri-X cooling system? I might have exaggerated the dead silence but the pump noise (if there was any) got suppresed completely by fans in my system (all run at ~900RPM, 5 fans) and cases side panel and I didn't run fans at even 50% speed (mounted SP140 fans). Yes, I have a large clue on what I'm talking about.

Guys, i understand you are happy with what you've got, but for me:

120mm fans mod gonna cost me around 30-40 bucks, and is gonna get me silent performance at same cooling as the stock fans or even better. Most probably a bit better.

G12 with a cheap AIO is gonna get me to 100 bucks. It voids my GPU warranty. AIOs have expiration date (pumps last so much......., especially on cheap AIOs). When my PC is not under heavy load, there's no fan running, except the CPU (which is gonna get corrected with a macho RT rev.B when it comes out). I don't want a pump running always, or at night. I can hear everything at night, and I don't want to hear a freaking pump (thus AIO coolers are never silent,.......they might be virtually inaudible, but they are never silent). And all that for dropping 5-6-7°C on already good temps at the same noise ratio.

I refloated the thread to report my findings, since there's a lot of ppl with the Meshify C and more than one or 2 had issues with GPUs being hot or noisy AND/OR maybe receive some more suggestions to work around my issues without to many cons. A G12+ AIO has way, way to many cons for me.

Tnx for the help and understanding.

Yeah, price comparision and idle performance deffinitely goes in heavy air cooling favor. Though the AiO mod provides best performance under load and it doesn't void GPU warranty, screws under stickers are also not a reason to void warranty.

If you've red the first comment i live in Europe, and Asus gives a **** about grey areas. So stickers do void warranty.
Also my card is reconditioned.

Just a heads up, if you hook up the 120mm fans to your card, things might not work as intended, learned that the hard way with my Morpheus.
The stock cooler was a blower one, with a minimum speed of 1200rpm=33%, and I bought a pair of 1400rpm beQuiet SW3, expecting a ~500rpm idle (and a mini4pin to 4pin splitter obviously). The problem is Nvidia cards, for some reason, control the fan speed by rpm, so what happened was the new fans were always idling at 1200rpm like the stock one.
In the end, I had to hook them up to the motherboard using cpu temps as a basis (because I don't have any workload where only the gpu is stressed).

Have you looked into fitting an aftermarket gpu air cooler? Not the perfect solution, but it'll cool your card pretty good if you can deal with some the issues.

That would be next option if the 120mm fan mod doesn't work. However as i stated, the temps are good enough. I don't have a heat problem, i have a noise problem.

I know they are directly related, but since i have some margins to move around, I'm trying to avoid voiding the warranty or increase the costs as much as i can. I can afford an aftermarket cooler no problem, but as I'm trying to adapt the build the best i can for my needs, I'm also trying to make it the cheapest i can, without compromising anything. I do understand that sounds a bit contradictory for the PC enthusiast that freaks out about 70°C and spends 100-200 bucks and blasts the fan at 1500rpm just to see the CPU/GPU at 50°C.

I'm not lf it. I'm looking to make the cheapest silent build, with acceptable temps and no water cooling. I'm freaking tired of seeing water coolers everywhere, because ppl still have the image of water cooling vs air cooling of 2010, when we used to have cases designed with 0 importance on cooling.
The macho RT goes for 65€ where i live, and I'm pretty positive that in the right case/fans setup, that cooler, gives you same performance as a nzxt x62, with max RPM on both coolers. The difference in price is of 2,5 times and the AIO pump will eventually start making noise. They all do, no exception..... Also the LGM RT is by a big margin quieter.

Srry for the Offtopic......
