    Aquacomputer Kryographics NEXT 2080 Ti - why does it have to have RGB... why is the RGB part designed to be a waste of energy because you put it in face down so many more times than with a riser or an upside down mainboard mounting...

    I guess I am very critical to looks, they're all too... too shiny for me. I'm a sucker for EKWB's clean, boring look I have to admit...

    Hi there

    Now everyone or most blocks do have RGB and without the RGB you simply won't sell block, this is very sad truth

    What I like on Aquacomputer Kryographics blocks is active backplate and display which is or can be used with Aquacomputer Quadro or Aquaero, that's for me is big plus

    EKWB has been my choice for few years but their quality going downhill and if you are comparing EK WB against any WB on market then you will understand why I don't rate EKWB as much

    Have at home few Phanteks Glacier WB, Bykski and will be getting Heatkiller IV for my build too and if you are just comparing weight, quality of machining, craftsmanship etc then you will see

    With Phanteks you can use stock backplate, same with Bykski etc or Barrow

    I have used and still using EKWB on my build, but will be switching to other WB gradually

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Yes, that it works with the aquaero is a big bonus, if you remember I use the old one (4XT) myself. Only sad that they made the communications cable originate from the place where you connect the tube... I can't imagine how that thin, unbridled cable looks good on this position... but yeah, sadly, it needs to have RGB. I checked some pictures, and at least you don't have to hook it up since you don't need to connect the cables. :D

    Dudes finally got my EK Vector RTX 2080ti RGB water block
    Ran some tests before with my new 2080ti mounted vertically, installed the riser cable again and CRAPPY CRAP CRAP
    No start! Restart, many starts, finally starts and I run GPUZ. it shows the default graphic unit is the Intel one on the CPU, selected the GPU and its running the PCe x16 at 1.1 not 3.0!
    As I said before I had lots of issues with my older 1080ti running vertically. Thought it may be water damage to the PCe x16 port, I suspected the riser cable, this confirms it.

    EZDIY Riser cable bought on Amazon, came highly recommended., Maybe I got a dud.
    I ordered Fractal Designs own riser cable, but taking forever to get here. Maybe I can contact their local head office here in Sweden and ask them if they have spares (Its a Swedish company)

    Is there any existing AIO solution if i wanna use some basic watercooling for my 2080-ti? Not waterblock and full water solution, just and AIO with one or two radiator. Preferably one.

    I think EVGA RTX Hybrid AIO is now for sale which should work, if yours GPU is based or is same as reference PCB which I think it is

    Other option is get NZXT Kraken G12 and you will need get AIO of yours choice 120mm or 240mm but problem with this solution is you will be not cooling VRM and RAM modules and depending on yours case and airflow I just don't know

    My preferred option is go route of the Raijintek Morpheus II cooler, with this cooler you should be have good temperatures and very nice noise levels, have tried that on Palit RTX 2080Ti and temperatures I have seen in low 50's to mid 50's, with fans spinning at 850-1000RPM

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    No worries mate,EVGA Hybrid AIO should work in yours case, just replace stock TIM for Noctua NT-H1 or Kryonaut that's my recommendation

    NZXT not sure if I would choose, I would choose only if you have good case with good airflow and you will need to get as well Copper heatsinks for VRAM and VRM

    Raijintek Morpheus II cooler I would probably choose rather

    But you can build own loop for not so much money, check Aliexpress there

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Hi there

    OK done few tests during the weekend and week and must admit my core is proper dud, 2055MHz at 1.05v, 2085-2088MHz at 1.08v and 2100MHz at 1.093v,memory can do 1100MHz easy and beyond that didn't tried, my old GTX1080Ti is good OC and will do 2113MHz at 1.073v easy

    Will do few tests, will remount waterblock and replace EK thermal pads for Thermal Grizzly Minus Pad and will see if this does make any difference if not have at home as well EVGA RTX 2080Ti XC and test this card if its better OC than my one or get different waterblock Heatkiller IV Pro or Aquacomputer

    I would be happy with OC, just if this clocks are stable in rendering mainly in IRAY or Octane but clocks are unstable in rendering and usually I get TDR or hard lock

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I'll clearly consider the EVGA kit (subscribed to availability alert), no clue brands were selling such kits nowadays.
    Mostly looking to install it before summer.

    My friend too waiting on Hybrid AIO from EVGA,last time on EVGA forum they said availability is bit scarce but this has been in December, in US is bit easier to get this cooler than over here

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura
