Morpheus II Vs. MK-26

Hello all,

I'm playing with the idea of purchasing an aftermarket cooler for my GIGABYTE 1080 Ti Gaming OC. The temperatures with the stock cooler are acceptable, but they're not great by any means. It's overclocked to its maximum potential currently with a 120% power limit. My card will reach a maximum of 75°C during gaming with the overclock applied. That should tell you that my 1080 Ti is throttling, and indeed it does throttle during gaming. I really don't think my card will last for many years if I push these temperatures at this rate.

Can you slap these coolers on a 1080 Ti? If so, which cooler is better? I have plenty of room for it in my bench case, and I do not use any PCI-e slots other than the main one for the graphics card. I plan on using two PH-F140HP fans from Phanteks on them. I have these same fans on my CPU cooler, so I think having all the same fans would be awesome. Thanks for any help!

AMD 1800X w/ Phanteks PH-TC14PE (3850MHz, 100MHz BCLK)
G.SKILL 3200MHz CL16 16GBx2 (3066MHz, 14-14-14-14-28-42-4-6-24-1T)
GIGABYTE GTX 1080 Ti Gaming OC (2038MHz, 5940MHz)
ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero (BIOS v6301)
