Re: Fan Hitting Shroud on 1080ti Hybrid Cooler Kit
Turns out my fan was actually a little loose. I just applied washers per The Scarlet One's suggestion and no more rubbing. Of course my shroud looks like it was already ground down a bit, but it looks like the washers provide a fair amount of clearance that it should clear a new shroud.
What I do not like is that knowing they are there I can see them under the back plate, and they do bow the backplate ever so slightly. I thought about trying to mount them under the card, but my concern would be bowing the card rather than the back plate.
Not very pleased with the solution for a $160 item, but it seems to work.
