Thanks for the heads up, does anyone have a list of all the cards with reference boards? Lots and lots of 1080's on my local craigslist lol.

Is there a big temp difference from running the rad on a GPU as an intake vs exhaust, because I am currently running it as an exhaust on my 290X and the temps get in the upper 70’s. Mainly because I didn’t want to mess with my cases airflow. If I can expect a 10C drop then I will totally go for it.

Edit: I went for it and temps went from 78C to 66-69C, but CPU temps rose a tad.

So i never got to finding a 1080, does anyone have a list of 1080's or 1070 ti's that work with the g12? Id prefer one that can retain the gpu backplate, but not a necessity.

So I haven’t posted in this thread in a while but I’ve since upgraded from the 290X to an EVGA GTX 1080 Superclocked and was wondering if anyone knows if the G10 bracket fits a GTX 1080 reference PCB? Or would i need to go G12? Would really like to use the old bracket if possible because I don’t use the 290X anymore.

Haven't checked here in a while, but in Sept 2018 I upgraded my MSI 980 Ti to a MSI 1080 Ti Duke OC. One reason I like the Duke (as well as the Gaming X is great) is because they have almost a full metal plate to cool VRM components as well. The duke also comes with a backplate.

My temps with the H90 are between 40 and 50C. I have two Corsair ML120 fans in push/pull config - rear of case. This is fan at it's lowest setting.

Personally, I feel if the backplate does anything, it assists with more pressure bringing the cooler and the GPU together tighter. That's my 2 cents.

On a side note, anyone have a rough guesstimate on what temp differences would be if upgrading from a 120MM closed loop to a 240 or even 280MM closed loop? I guess I'm curious. I don't want to drop $300-400 on a new case/cooler (due to my case limitations) only to get a 2-3c difference.

It really depends on a lot of variables, does the rad that’s hooked up to your 1080 ti feel warm to the touch or cool after a while under load? If warm then yes you’ll notice a difference in temps due to that being the limit, if it does not feel warm then the solution lies within the contact to the cold plate, if its thermal paste then that might be what is holding back cooling performance, not saying you did a bad job on the paste or anything, that’s just how i’ve always been able to tell which is the limiting factor.

Edit- To clarify what I meant is if the limit is the coldplate to the aio or the contact between the die and aio, switching to a larger rad won’t make a difference if the current one isn’t dissipating as much as it is capable of. The easiest way would be to upgrade fans to higher cfm ones rated for static pressure, faster rpm doesn’t mean better for it. If that shows a temp drop larger than 1-2C then you’ll see a difference from going to a larger rad. I hope this was of some help.

So in case someone stumbles upon this thread searching for info, here's some tidbits on trying to mount the non-supported Corsair H115i Extreme. I bought one on a whim used and decided to see if I could fit it anyway.

It didn't work out. The problem is that despite having the round Asetek block/pump, it is wider than the supported ones. When you press it through it gets stuck. Even if you used pliers to force it, you would most likely never be able to get it out again. Apparently the G12 bracket can fit it though so I guess that is a bit wider.

Second problem is the pump top. While you can move it up by loosening the four screws around the base, you won't be able to fit in the screw tops for mounting the G10 on the GPU. You could assemble it in reverse and put the screw tops on the back plate side but in that case it would be better to replace the screws with something that doesn't have threads right at the start.

Final problem with this model is the way the tubes are on the pump. They stick right out of the top so for example if you use a second VRM fan on a PCIe bracket like I do on my 2080 Ti, fitting it might be a problem. 92mm fan might fit but 120 did not because the tubes are not very flexible so they are altogether annoying to get anywhere.

TL;DR: Don't try to mount a H115i or any other angular top Corsair AIO on the G10.
