I have the Hybrid kit on the 2080Ti (FTW3 Ultra gaming) that I have....how hard is it (or is it even
possible?) to change the rad?
 
I'm just curious if it's even possible, really...my temps aren't bad but I have space for another 420 Rad in the Core X9 heh..

    Entirely possible but requires destroying the current tubes as they are glued.

    hmm...thanks....I'll have to research I guess...at some point (after the warranty on the AIO) I may do it.

    I wouldn't bother as these AiO pumps are already pretty weak. Maybe try do fit a normal block like + EK Phoenix or Alphacool module on it?

    Pumps and mixing metals. Not worth it when you can just buy a hydro copper block with your new rad.

    Or at least the Pump/Radiator Unit.

    I'm sure EVGA will look at the model NZXT and Corsair has done in the past and present.  Make a universal adapter and allow those to fit most AIO brands on it.  Now that would make sense imo!
     
    Yes, you could mod the AIO as a side project as many have in the past but a few issues come to mind.  There might be aluminum (cheaper material to use) in the loop or rad mixed in and the pump's too weak to add anything more to said loop as already stated.

    Just encase no one mentioned it.. but you cant mod the stock hybrid cooler "if your card came with one stock" or you'll void your warranty.

    EVGA has shown off a CPU cooler that uses replaceable parts. I remember seeing gamers Nexus post a video from a convention of it a couple months ago.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    I've been contemplating the same thing, actually. Just acquired and installed the hybrid kit for my 2080ti ftw3, and the results are...middling? I came from two 1080ti hybrids which had excellent results on hybrid, but the new one just feels a bit lacking with the 120mm radiator. My case (PC-011) wont allow for a full block, as seen by others who have tried, but the hybrid did (barely) fit. Really seems like a 240mm rad would be a helpful step.
     
    Not too worried about the pump, as it has to be the same pump in the KP 240 setup, just with a larger radiator, correct? Not trying to make it push thru a 360 or anything, just a slim 240. What rad would be a good fit for that?
    What sizes are the hoses ID? Thinking about just chopping them, and getting some barbs or quick-disconnects to splice in.
    Do we have any idea what the rad and pump materials are, aluminum or other?
    What sort of coolant does Asetek use? Probably drain the whole thing and refill with fresh coolant of some sort.
     
    TL;DR: Cant fit a full block. What would it actually take to replace the radiator?

    Western, in Denver. Maybe the thin air is affecting performance, too
    edit: so there's 2 different gens being used between the standard and KP coolers? hmm...well, I guess still wouldn't worry too much about pump capacity, still not pushing anything huge

    Southwest Littleton here.
    I wonder if the altitude has any effect?
    I know it has an effect on Coolant in a Custom Water Loop.
     
    Not sure on the Generations on the Pumps only know what was posted on the KP Thread.
    and this one Asetek Gen6 Liquid Cooling Technology Powers Ultra High-End GPU Hybrid Cooler from EVGA

    Ha! Wave, I can probably wave back! Highlands Ranch, just off Lucent/470.
     
    In theory, doesn't seem like it would be too complicated to splice a new rad in there. Chop, attach, and fill. In theory...
    Wonder if Microcenter would have necessary fittings, not sure how specialized their selection of fittings is. May go prowl around just for ideas. They have a bunch of EK rads, but not sure about the performance or reputation of the CoolStream SE 240 Dual that they have in stock. I've barely started down the custom watercooling road.

    If you use MicroCenter make sure your past is NEW and not used.

    I do t think I've ever seen any strange fittings there that one would need for a aio.. but who knows. I'd hunt for aio mods cause I know of atleast 1 person that did change the rad on a aio.

    But while your there you can look at the ek pump/res combos! Hehe.. that and a hybrid block and a set of fans and some soft tubing and your in the running for way better temps!
