    Hi there

    Are you going with QDC option or not? If not I would do go with that option

    Not sure if you are really need reservoir if you are not adding extra radiator,if you will be going with extra radiator then I would add extra reservoir with pump

    Liquid,Mayhems Pastel or something like this would be OK

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    I think the 360 Kit does not have QDC

    Hi, yes, I will get the QDC option.
    Their manual for Predator says that if you want to add a GPU it is recommended to add a reservoir.

    Hi there

    EK Predator 360 should be OK running GPU and CPU together in one loop without the needing extra reservoir,but if you have budget then I would add :)

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    Hi there

    This kit X360 or Extreme kit is DIY WC kit and is different to Predator as Predator is marketed as AIO/CLC with expandability option

    Just check with EK what will be best way,but still think you should be OK with EK Predator 360 with QDC and block for Titan XP with QDC,adding reservoir is something what I would personally add with extra radiator for myself

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    Thanks for the reservoir tip, I will ask EK about.

    F everything.

    I was going to bite the bullet, and order one. But I can't find one.

    I guess it's a good thing though, I don't have the cash exactly to drop right now lol.

    Pretty sure there was a thing with this particular GPU having to be bought from Nvidia directly.

    That said some stores might get a few retail models in eventually but I believe I've read something like that on how Nvidia will handle all initial sales of said GPU and then there's third party water coolers available as a replacement for the stock vapor cooler if desired.
    (It does seem to run fairly hot for a recent Nvidia GPU at full load even without overclocking and then heat ramps up further with OC unless you bump fan speed which results in the fan being incredibly noisy.)

    I have a reply from EK.
    The 360 Predator with QDC is enough for 1 CPU and 1 GPU. There is no need for an external reservoir.

    Good news for me since I really did not wanted to fiddle with that stuff.

    Order placed, now I hope my Titan will arrive soon :banana:

    That's good news there,as I thought so for CPU and GPU EK Predator 360 should be enough,reservoir is needed as you are going with extra radiator and pump

    Thanks,Jura

    Its absolutely enough. Been cooling my SB chip and 980ti easily, and I don't even run the fans at 50%

    I would say will fit with few modifications,few people running old 980Ti/Titan X Hybrid AIO with Titan X Pascal and temps are in 40's or early 50's

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura

    It will not fit the 1070/80 is a 256bit memory bus the TXM/TXP and 980Ti are all 382 bit memory bus.

    Full coverage blocks will not fit. The memory chips and power phases are different. I would not risk it. I would wait for the EK as it is a true full coverage block that directly cools the vrm's and memory as well as the GPU core.
