When I tried to do the step-up for my just purchased RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra to a RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid, that card wasn't available in the list.  I could only step-down to a lower card, why?

    Well since that hybrid model is not in the list there is nothing you can do about it. I have seen in other instances where something you would think should be a step up option is not there.

    No, step up is limited to specific models and the hybrid would be outside of the specific models.

    Usually the card on the list is a reference PCB, and the lowest mode available.

    You can read all of the step up rules and FAQ’s www.evga.com/stepup

    Just buy a hybrid kit (evga or aftermarket) and keep the air cooler as a backup, or return it.
     
    Honestly while I'm happy with the performance of my hybrid kit, the pump is noisy and you have to go to great lengths to optimize the performance.  The aftermarket kits with a 240mm AIO really seem like the way to go if you're going to get into it. 
     
    I'd eventually consider going to a 120x38mm AIO on my card, but it would be a huge pain to make a CPU block work on the gpu with the existing hybrid configuration.

    Yeah, as others said - Step-Up is typically only on reference base models .
