    You are probably never run EVGA Hybrid AIO?

    I'm running right now Titan X with Hybrid AIO,with Hybrid AIO you are keeping stock fan something like this

    Those Hybrid are not full coverage blocks or water blocks,they're using same pump as Corsair

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    This doesn't matter where are phases or VRM as EVGA Hybrid are not full coverage blocks

    Thanks,Jura

    Then you would probably be better off getting a GM200 based one as look at the socket on the GP104 It is a bit different. The 1070/80 kit may mount different.

    According to the manual of the 260, it's fine for 1 extra block (e.g. gpu) - so we'll see.

    Installation CPU wise was very smooth and easy, very impressed with the documentation and build quality thus far.

    Just hoping for a quick delivery once EK start shipping the GPU blocks on tuesday.

    This card is the best.
    The noise from the stock cooler is not that bad.
    I can't hear it with my headphones on.
    I tested the noise in Paragon. 980Ti G1 makes allot of noise in Paragon and I can hear it even with the headphones.
    Happy customer here :banana:
    After I slap the EK block it will be even better.

    Installed an EK Nickel block :)

    http://imgur.com/3MKvtEQ

    Basic results are below (I don't have time tonight to do more) - this is using the QDC pre-filled Nickel block with the Predator 240.

    Firstly - the predator 240 seems to be waaaaaaaay good enough to handle +1 gpu ontop of the CPU.

    As I say, I've not had time to overclock yet - this is all on stock settings.

    Without the block:

    You know the story. My card boosted to around 1,740 - obviously without a very agressive fan curve it would not stay there at all. Temps would settle around 75 or so depending on the game.

    With the block:

    Boost clocks are now 1,835mhz and stable without touching anything. Free performance, woo.

    Max GPU tempreture reached was 42 deg c. (this is running Unigene valley on a loop).

    Overclocking tomorrow... :)

    Impressive results. That is quite a temperature drop.

    I just got my EKWB.
    I will be mounting my predator 360, water block and backplate today :banana:

    Nice :)

    Considering whether to get a back plate for mine or not, tempting!

    Overclocking wise, I've done a little and can get around 2050~ stable - but remember that the voltage options are not yet in afterburner - once that version is released I'll do some more in-depth overclocking as I haven't really bothered that much until Voltage tweaking is available.

    Meanwhile, I really hate ASUS's Fan expert... half tempted to use my Fan controller instead (although that too is quite crappy!)

    I will mount my back plate in the weekend, I wanted to see if everything is ok first with my installation of the water block.
    I have not played with the fan settings for the predator yet, it's not that noisy, yet :D

    Backing plate will be a tight fit with your Phobeus above your Titan.

    :)

    Let us know what you make of the backplate / if its worth getting :)

    - Also, slightly off-topic, what's the Pheobus like?

    It's not Phobeus, it's just the xonar essence stx.
    It's a great sound card, I have no need to change it.
    I will move it on a lower pci-e lane to get the room for the backplate.
    I have it there because of the SLI.
    No more SLI and air coolers, so much space now :D

    I'm using the 5.1 omnisurround USB because of SLi and space! Miss my Xonar, so probably going to pick another up.

    I was not going to mention this because it's not achievement I am proud off.
    I managed to damage my board when removing the fracking screws used by nvidia.

    https://postimg.org/image/knog3xxhh/

    Look at the lower left corner, right next to where the screw whole, a capacitor is missing.
    I hit it when I was getting that screw off.
    To my knowledge, these are used to regulate the voltage, they have low voltage values and one missing is not going to make too much of a difference and I have the proof since my Titan doesn't give a flying frack about that missing part.
    These parts are glued by robots and there is a possibility that the gluing was not perfect.
    I will be gluing it back in the weekend. I have a friend with the exp and proper tools for the job.

    So... listen to the idiot and get a backplate because it will be safer.

    Oh dear!!

    Definitely sounds like a good idea for protecting them then!

    I'll order one up :) - otherwise knowing what I'm like, I'll do the same.

    Only it'll be 10x worse than a single resistor!

    (I already checked with EK that you don't have to remove the block to install, so that's good. That'd of been a pain! haha)
