Hey all,
 
I have an EVGA 1080 Ti founders edition card and in an attempt to extend the life of my pc a bit I would like to use an EVGA hybrid kit for it.  My plan is to do what Gamers Nexus did here: (See edit; link got removed)
 
However the kit he used (EVGA 400-HY-5698-B1) appears to be discontinued.  Will the current EVGA Hybrid Kit (400-HY-1284-B1) water block still work with the 1080 Ti FE?  I realize the shroud will not work, but I am only concerned with the water block.  I am hoping to find an answer so I can decide if I need to go another route.
 
Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks!
 
Edit: Well, it appears my reference links got deleted.  What Steve from GN did was attach the water block from the 400-HY-5698-B1 while still utilizing the fan from the factory FE cooler.  No cutting required.  I am wondering if the bolt patterns from that cooler and the new one are the same.

    Hello,
     
    low post count members have limits on posting links
     
    find the workaround in item #4   Ultimate Self-Starter Thread For New Members
     
     
    RTX "20 series" GPU die is larger ... so it is unlikely that it will have the correct spacing for a "10 series" GPU die
     
    That said, I've never tried or remember seeing anyone saying they have done it
     
    there are some third party AIO adapters to use with many GPUs

    RTX Project EVGA X99 FTWK-5930K@4.8GHz 2xEVGA2080Ti EVGA-1200P2  Nibbler EVGA X99 Classified-5960X@4.5GHz 3-GPU Water Loop 1600P2

    Thank you for the quick reply!  Now that I know the die size is different I wont take the chance of buying the current model. 
     
    I happened to find one that should be compatible on ebay, unfortunately it was about $50 more than the new one in the EVGA store.  But that's the price for me sleeping on buying one

    NZXT adapter & a AIO is an option - just they have limited cooling for the other parts of the card
     
    ID-COOLING FROSTFLOW 120 VGA - is a brand I'm not familiar with "custom GPU AIO mounts"  https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=GPU+aio#
     
     
    me - I run custom loops & water blocks

    I was looking at the NZXT, but I prefer the look and build of EVGA.  I managed to find a new EVGA 1080 Hybrid cooler; but had to pay above msrp.

    I am holding off on a custom loop until my next build; I love the way they look.
     
     
    Thank you again!

    Well, i can tell you for sure, cause i checked it on my own cards, that the EVGA Hybrid cooler that im using on my 780 FE, which is the gtx980 hybrid kit, will fit all the high end cards from the 8800GTS all the way to the GTX980. The 4 mount holes for the screws are in the exact same spot on every single card. I bet its probably the same on the 10 series too but the RTX 20XX lineup is probably different. Im sure if you ask someone would do some measuring for ya, or evga may give you the info direct.

    MOBO: EVGA P67 FTW, CPU: I5 2500K, RAM: Gskill PI 1600 CAS 6, SSD: Samsung 830 128gb, HDD: WD Caviar Black 750gb, PSU: CoolerMaster V-1000, CPU HSF: EVGA ScC HSF~ P/P 88CFM Yate Loons, G-CARD:EVGA GTX780 w/ EVGA 980ti Hybrid AIO Cooler, CASE: LIAN-LI PC-V2010B w/ Window mod, OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, MON: AOC i2367F, HdSet: steelseries Siberia
