I recently bought this card from Newegg due to availability: https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards/TURBO-GTX1080TI-11G/https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards/TURBO-GTX1080TI-11G/

I'm a complete newbie to water cooling, but I'd love to learn and do it with this card. I've read up on the various essentials thread, but I'm still uncertain what I should be doing (ideally) with this card. I would love it if someone can walk me through what I should purchase.

Do you want to use an open or an all in one water loop?

If it is a reference card you can just use a titan XP water block. This is what I did on my 1080ti founders edition card. Also it will depend on your budget as well when building a water cooling loop.

I think a closed loop. I suppose having an open loop would mean I can put my CPU on that loop as well instead of potentially buying a different closed loop for my CPU. I'm not sure what route to go. doh.gif

I don't believe it is a reference board, otherwise the CK cooling block for 1080 Ti would have supported this card, right? https://www.ekwb.com/configurator/step1_complist

I'd like to spend no more than $200 if possible.

Go open loop for the full experience!! Now if the card is non reference and you can't find a block, you may need to go AIO and EK has what you need there. The AIO will come with a waterblock/rad to cool your GPU die and a shroud with a fan to cool your VRMS.

Pretty sure it's not a reference pcb. Side note TC.... how loud is that card? Also have you ever had a regular Nvidia blower card to compare it to?

The card is actually really quiet unless I OC it over air. For example, I replicated the settings found here and can run the card stably. But wow, is it really loud! That is when I decided to look into water cooling.

It looks reference but I would not gamble on it. I would contact Asus personally to double check to see if it is a reference PCB or not. If it is reference then you have tons of options. Lots of companies are making full cover blocks for reference model GTX 1080 Ti EKWB, Bitspower, phanteks and possibly others I have not yet heard of. Also any full cover block that fits the Titan Xp will fit as well.
If it is not reference then your options get smaller and harder as you would likely have to create your own setup with universal blocks.

tl:dr Talk to Asus then go from there.
