    Glad that this is a thing now. You can get in future (I assume) a reference board, and mod it with an AIO. Resulting in higher performance, lower temps, and most likely overall lower cost in comparison to pre-assembled AIO cards that usually cost a fortune.

    It was a thing before, there was the kraken g12 bracket and this is the 2nd generation gpu aio from alphacool. Gpus with included aios didn't actually cost much more, you could get the 2080Ti aorus xtreme waterforce for $50-150 more than the air cooled version before it was discontinued.

    The main advantage of this aio is it's expandable. You can get prefilled radiators from alphacool and can even connect it to one of their cpu aios for a combined loop.

    Not sure where you live - but in my place you could never ever find an AIO version for any reasonable price. It would always be 300-400 EUR above the reference.

    Great product, shame it only supports RTX cards by the looks of it (and some 5700s).

    I have a NZXT G12 bracket on my Zotac 1080Ti AMP Extreme, along with some small heatsinks on the VRAM and VRM. My card came with a giant 3 fan heatsink (beefy boy) but temps could reach easily 75-80C even with an aggressive fan curve.

    Now, with a cheap Thermaltake 140mm AIO using a 140mm Noctua fan hooked up to the GPU fan header with an adaptor and a 92mm fan on NZXT bracket blowing onto the VRM's. The card barely reaches 55C and only just touches 60C when playing a super stressful game or running Kombuster. I can see this cooler being a lot better and would expect at least sub 50C during gaming.

    We need more AIO's for GPU's, they love them thanks to the lack of an IHS and direct die contact.
