The two black rectangle plastic bits
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)
Draw on it or something, you are freaking me out!!!
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
very helpful, thank you!
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
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
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
Three Months have passed and my Zotac Gaming Amp's are still alive...Thank God..
Tested Port Royal Benchmark:
Question has anyone bought a $999.00 RTX 2080Ti from EVGA ? i was on auto notify , finally receive an email , but the $999.00 card is now $1099 , and is available now,1/14/2019.
Just I want to point out EVGA RTX 2080Ti Black Edition using non A chip and from few guys who are have non A chips, they're limited in OC and you can't use or flash Galax 380W BIOS or any A1 BIOS
If I would rather get XC RTX 2080Ti Black Edition not just Black Edition
Hope this helps
Out of curiosity, I would like to ask if any of the 2xxx series cards you guys bought was defective and needed to be replaced. In other forums I noticed that too many are dying after two weeks of use, especially those from Gainward. edit: I meant Gigabyte.
RTX 2080Ti Full Cover Water Blocks Reviews:
@jura11 my friend i have found very useful reviews for RTX 2080Ti full cover water blocks. Best performers in this exact order from 1 to 4 :
1. Aqua Computer kryographics NEXT 2080 Ti - At a GPU temperature averaging 34 to 35 C , I register under the socket on the back of the board about 35 to 36 ° C, which is very good and better than the previously tested cooler. The memory modules, depending on the positioning, only between 32 ° C and 33 ° C warm, which means the lonely top position. Thermal compound and precision win over thermal pads. The voltage transformers warm up to a maximum of 43 ° C, which is also perfect register under the socket on the back of the board about 35 to 36 ° C, which is very good and better than the previously tested cooler. The memory modules, depending on the positioning, only between 32 ° C and 33 ° C warm, which means the lonely top position. Thermal compound and precision win over thermal pads. The voltage transformers warm up to a maximum of 43 ° C, which is also perfect.
2. Watercool Heatkiller IV 2080Ti - At a GPU temperature averaging 35 C , I register under the socket on the back of the board about 37 ° C, which is very good. Depending on the positioning, the memory modules will warm between 35 ° C and 40 ° C, which is better than with both coolers tested so far. The voltage transformers will warm up to a maximum of 45 ° C, which is good, but not the best measured value of all previous coolers. Nevertheless, the entire board is cool enough in the sum to run as the current test winner to the finish.
3. Phanteks Glacier G2080Ti - At a GPU temperature of 36 C , I register under the socket on the back of the board about 41 ° C, which is useful The memory modules, depending on the positioning, between 40 ° C and 45 ° C warm, which is also not bad. The voltage transformers will warm up to a maximum of 43 ° C, which is significantly better than the product from EKWB and is definitely due to two things. First, the coils are also connected by pad to the cooler bottom and second, the microchannels are different and run much wider.
4. EK-Vector RTX 2080Ti RGB - At a GPU temperature of 36 C , I register a good 38 ° C under the socket on the back of the board, that's good. Depending on the positioning, the memory modules will warm between 37 ° C and 44 ° C, which is not bad either. The voltage transformers will heat up to 55 ° C, also good. Overall, the board thus remains above average cool, which you can only welcome.
Thank you goes to Toms Hardware.de , complete reviews link here:
I'm awaiting the Fed Ex driver to pull any minute now for delivery of my 2080Ti today, i already received my Phantek Glacier RTX 2080Ti block yesterday. Will assemble today and report back my findings on this water block.
Curious, did you test the aquacomputer one with the backplate?
No my friend i did not , i have the Phanteks Glacier block here ready to install but after reading a bit i want to test this video card at stock for a few days to make sure it does not suffer the space invaders syndrome .
The Aqua Computer Kryographics Next 2080Ti is very hard to find and none are available at this moment , same with the Heatkiller block there is none available at this moment anywhere, my best next choice was Phanteks.
Phanteks Glacier G2080Ti this one i have here to test with my FE 2080Ti:
hehe yes you are right, I just realised it's hardly available, not even in aquacomputer's own shop. I was just wondering if the backplate indeed does improve cooling significantly
