Greetings from Greece,
 
I have the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 HYBRID GAMING, 11G-P4-6598-KR.
The last couple of weeks i have been getting constant noise coming out of the pump
and i want to replace it with an aftermarket cooler.
I have found the Accelero Xtreme IV from Artic and it says its compatible with the 1080 ti.

I would like to know if it is compatible with the 1080 ti SC2 hybrid.
Other suggestions are also appreciated.
 
Thank you.

    Before you do all this, could you tell us how you have the rad mounted? Is it with the hoses on top of the rad or on the bottom? You may have air in the pump. The radiator hoses should be on the bottom so any air, and there is always air is trapped in the top expansion tank of the rad and not sucked back into the pump.

    So the radiator is mounted on top of the case and the hoses are set on the bottom of the rad.
    I have uploaded 2 pictures that show exactly how it is mounted.
    and yes It sounds like air is being trapped inside...
    Let me know if it can be fixed.
     
    Thanks a lot

    Agh... that's almost as bad as having it upside down. What you can try is taking the rad out and manipulating it gently while the system is running to see if you can purge the air. Gentle shaking, as long as you're not jerking on the hoses to the GPU will not hurt anything. It's best to mount the rad vertically, hoses on the bottom.

    How is the air going to come out of the radiator and from where? I mean these radiators aren't sealed up and also closed loop?

    Man...  There's air in the loop to allow for expansion. Always, in every single AIO. With the rad mounted correctly, with the hoses on the bottom, the air will collect and remain in the top expansion tank of the rad.
    The idea is to get the air bubbles, if there are any, out of the pump. Also tilting and manipulating your case. If you can set your case on its side, that might work. Don't get crazy. Have you tried anything yet, or do you need to ask more questions?
    I'd last 5 seconds doing phone support.

    I am in a similar boat (same card). Did improve the temps somewhat using the above trick, still I have to run my card at 70-75% to get somewhat normal temps.
     
    IIRC EVGA used to offer said AIO cooler independently. Searched it but to no avail. Anyone here have an idea where I may find said Kit to replace my aging one. Is EVGA offering it for old customers or am I completely out of luck?
     
    The GPU is super for 1080p gaming and I have absolutely no reason, espec with current GPU prices, to swap/upgrade it. Any help would be appreciated...

    This Hybrid Cooler kit is out of production unfortunately.
    I have the same card and still game with it at 1440p until I can find a new 3070 Ti.
    I should also reposition the radiator so that the hoses are coming out from the bottom.
