Aftermarket cooling / Mod for the Asus Turbo
I just purchased the Asus GTX 1080 Turbo secondhand for a really good Price.
I did watch some youtube videos before buying the Card and decided I could put
up with the cooler considering the Price.
However after having the Card operate under full load yesterday, something needs
to be done to cut down the noise.
What options are there?
Most of the videos mention that the turbo Card isn't 100 % identical to the ref. Cards.
The DIY / AIO cooler solution is no good for me. I would have a hard time finding a spot to fit the radiator, not
to mention it would be costly since I have to buy both the bracket and the AIO Cooler.
I also thought about modding the original turbo cooler by removing the fan and the plastic shround but keeping the baseplate and heatsink. I would then add a bracket to the pci slot below the Card with 2 fans blowing onto the now exposed baseplate and heatsink, but I don't know if it would Work.
Any input / experiences would be appreciated.
