2080ti options for water?

Looked at making a new computer and wnated to know if the brand really matters for the 2080ti if I'm planning to go with a custom water cooling loop. I know for the 1080ti the base reference design was plenty of power delivery to OC decently as long as you were getting the heat out.

EVGA is the only brand that I know of that you can remove the stock cooler and not lose the warranty

Alright that's what I was thinking, so I'll just look for the cheaper EVGA models as those are likely reference. Assuming the super expensive ones are either binned or have more power added to the design. Neither of which matter on the 2080ti based on what I've found so far.

The EVGA Black edition, XC Black edition, XC Gaming, and XC Ultra Gaming are all reference PCB and will be the easiest to find blocks for. All the FTW3 and K|NGP|N variants use custom PCB. Unless you are chasing a crazy overclock, spending more on those cards isn't really worth the price premium.

As said buy one EVGA with reference design, which is more than enough and buy one Watercool Heatkiller block. You can check in their website that their blocks are fully compatible with the EVGA models mentioned. This is what I did and I can't be happier.

EVGA Has the best back plate IMO also if that matters.
The look is cool and actually feels sturdy.
Altho w/e block you get prob comes with a back plate.

Good to know. I'm going to vertical mount it so if the backplate is already sturdy there is no reason to spend more money on a new one.
