They got sent the wrong part ... its a vendor issue Not a part issue
 
Also I would not get the backplate if it says MSI - has to be wrong part ..... Nvidia is the sole supplier of the Pascal Titan X

The ekwb backplate at least has pads to transfer the heat. But as far as I'm concerned, without some airflow or water circulation, it really can't transfer that much heat away. They are really just passive radiators at best. The only tests I've seen don't show any advantage to the passive back plates. This is one reason why I have fans blowing towards the back of my card.

Good point; same reason I have 4 x120mm fans blowing on my cards from the side :)

I have a Titan X Pascal and I used the stock TXP back plate and original screws. Should be the same for the reference 1080 ti.

 




So on EKs website it says that the Founder's backplate isn't compatible with the EK Titan X waterblock, but looks like you are doing that right there...  Why would they say it's incompatible?
 
I have the stock EVGA SC backplates on my 1080s with the EK reference blocks.  They look a little nicer than the FE backplate IMO.

Just to update on the Bitspower block for 1080 Ti. It's live and totally sold-out the moment it went live. LOL
 
Price is 5500 TWD$ which is about ~180 $ or ~170 Euro calculated with average exchange rate. 
 
If I stick with my Ti step-up I probably won't have the patience to wait few weeks until available and imported to me with EK or Watercool already in stock and readily available. Still I love the fact it doesn't have that cut-out where DVI port used to be. OCD activated - that the biggest problem of blocks from EK or Watercool which I can get on very short notice.

Well I completed my Second Order, lets hope this time the In Stock is True and they ship out tomorrow.
So far I have pushed my Cards to +260 @ 2198 MHz so time for some Water Blocks.

Hey what's the difference between all of these EK waterblocks?   I like the matte black one , I see there is a matte black nickel plate and a matte black copper. Should I care which one I get or?
 
thx

One is going to be nickle plated copper. Some people do not like the tarnish that copper develops. They both cool the same.

Hundreds of nickel vs copper threads out there with 10x as many opinions. It's mostly aesthetics IMHO. Nickel plating isn't quite as conductive as bare copper, but it's more resistant to oxidation, so in theory nickel requires a bit less maintenance. Very little discernible performance difference in my experience, but I'm no pro. I've always chosen nickel.

Aluminum is pretty hard to mix into your loop now unless someone goes out of there way to do it. Pretty much all mainstream PC watercooling parts are all brass, nickle, and copper now which are safe to mix.
 
Looking at that chart looks like you can't really mix brass though. but the difference is fairly small. To bad gold costs so much.

Their are a lot of Cheap Aluminum Radiators out their still, I have been asked a few times over the last few weeks.
Brass Tubes and Aluminum Fins are OK, but I still would stay away from them as well in a Custom Water Loop.

  Nice find and from the respected Martin.

There still are cheap knock offs that use aluminum.  

Also as for nickel and folks using distilled water and biocides like silver, they both don't jive well.  I've seen issues with nickel and have personal experience with oxidization issues with all my CPU copper blocks and a few QDC fittings.  Everything else appeared to be fine expect for those components.  I went from promoting distilled water and silver to clear premixed fluids by reputed water cooling companies like Aquacomputer, Innovetek, EK etc.  

Not worth saving a few bucks annually on a custom loop that is worth hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.  It really makes no sense saving $20 annually while risking a few hundred at the least in possible damages.

This is why I use only this in my Rigs Koolance 702 Liquid Coolant, High-Performance, UV Blue, 700ml (24 fl oz) SKU: LIQ-702BU-B
I Flush and Filter the Coolant every Six Months and change every 16-18 months. Zero Issues. *No Biocides and No Silver Kill Coil.
I Brass Nickel and Copper only in my Custom Water Loops.

Nice! 
I lucked out and found an EVGA 1080 TI on Newegg today in stock and purchased the EK pascal block from Performance-pcs right after that. I can't wait to get them, my 980 is showing it's age in some games at 1440p.  :)

I use distilled water and a kill coil and have never had any problems, even after 1yr my loops have been completely clear.
 
When I used pre-made liquids, I had a gunk build up after just 3 months.

EVGA X99

It depends which premix liquids you're using.  Usually the colored fluids are the issue.

Hey how does the EKWB 1080 GTX Ti perform under idle & load?

my reason for asking is that a friend of mine is getting a 1080 Ti , a second hand one and he seeks a good waterblock, I advised him the EKWB-1080-GTX-Ti, EK stands well known as the best for making Water coolers alongside Danger Den, if they still exist.

So yeah some info would be nice, it's hard to find a good detailed review of this waterblock as well.

I hope you guys can give some helpful info thanks

DD isn't around anymore unfortunately, loved my gtx 480 blocks from them. As for data my single card with the EK block goes from around 26-50c, boost depends on load usually staying around 2050mhz. The issue is that different people have different idle temps and have their fan configs setup differently. In my case for instance, my fans are setup for quieter operation, if you can call 19 fans quiet lol.
 
You can take a look at Heatkiller as well, they make some fine waterbloks and they will be my next go to when i change my GPU. Already have a CPU block from them.

System:  2600K - MSI P67A GD80 - G.Skill Ares Blue 4x4Gb 1600 - EVGA 1080 Ti  - 120Gb Intel 530, 1Tb WD,  3Tb Seagate - Corsair HX850W - Creative Sound Blaster Z - Windows 10 Pro 64 - CM 932 Advanced - Edifier S530D - Acer Predator XB271HU (1440p)
 
Watercooling loop: XSPC Raystorm -  Swiftech MCP 655 with EK X-Top v2 - XSPC reservoir - Lamptron FC2 - 2x Swiftech 360 QP

I have the same EK Water Blocks and Sli Terminal Block on both of my 1080Ti SC Blacks....I went with EK Backplates (Nickel) on both.....I dont believe the original Evga Backplates will work and I wasnt going to "bastardize" my Cards...besides the new EK Backplates (being Nickel plated) look great....and you have such a huge choice of colors ....!!
