I figured this might be the best place to post this but I am thinking about upgrading from my 980 ti to a gigabyte aorus extreme 1080(not ti) and I was just curious if you guys might be able to tell me if there is a custom bios for the card to unlock power/voltage limits etc. There is a guy locally near me selling one for 350$ so I thought it might be a good buy.

Does this barrow waterblock fit the xtreme auros 1080ti wb waterblocked version also? Is the auros xtreme 1080ti and the auros xtreme wb 1080ti boards exactly the same?

Can ANYONE confirm that all the 1080ti Auros Xtreme PCB board layouts are identical that same??? I want to know if you can use a waterblock for the 1080ti Auros Xtreme air cooling version on the waterblock Auros Xtremes board since you cannot get a replacement from gigabyte.

I believe the Aorus 1080ti PCBs are all the same regardless if it is an extreme or regular version.

It appears they now have a new waterblock for the Aorus 1080ti that now does cool the memory VRM. Did they make this change because there have been issues with over heating of the memory VRM? I don't game often and when I do it is never longer than an hour or so. I have had no issues but this redesign has me concerned as when I first installed the waterblock.

I emailed EK and I am waiting for a response.
I attached a few pics showing the different revisions of the EK blocks. I am still waiting for a final answer from EK as to why they updated the block. Either it was because everyone was complaining the memory VRM wasn't being cooled or because it should be cooled and it wasn't with the original version. That is what has me concerned. If the memory VRM is running hot I have no way of knowing. I am nervous I could be damaging the card. I don't game often and when I do it isn't for long sessions. I doubt I have done any damage so far but if the memory VRM should be cooled I hope EK will send me the newer revision to replace my original revision.

Realistically those don't get hot enough to damage themselves. The memory gets unstable wayyy before enough power is drawn to smoke those. Those things can run up to around 120°C before you have to start worrying.

I understand that and that is why I still went with the EK block. With that said EK revised the block for a reason. I assume that means the memory VRM should be cooled and the newest revision does cool it.
