Hello! New here so apologies for the rough post.
 
Back on Black Friday of 2016 I purchased a PC with two GTX 1080 Hybrid AIO cards, SLI and all that.
A little less than a year later, the pump in one of them died. I'm about 90% sure it's only the pump itself, computer still reads both cards fine, it's just one doesn't get cooled and if i do anything other than idle it overheats. Touch the tubes and the working one I can feel the subtle vibrating of it working, other one does nothing. Took the offending card out, computer runs fine.
 
For a variety of personal reasons, the dead pump card has been sitting in a closet collecting proverbial dust (not really, it's clean), and I'm itching now to get it fixed and working properly. Obviously, not in warranty anymore. For the sake of posterity, I did try replacing the thermal paste on it to boot.
 
Now here's the thing, from what I gather, replacement pumps aren't made anymore. But what I'm hoping to do is find some way to get it AIO cooled again without sacrificing the matching aesthetic (it's a little silly, but two of the same cards in the PC, I want them to look the same!). I know there's some off-brand ones like NZXT with the GPU adapter, but then the two cards will look vastly different. It bothers me.
 
Part of me wonders if I could use the cooling component from the 2080 kit, and the existing shell portion I already have:  ?
I mean from product images it looks like it might, the actual mount portion looks identical, but that's super subjective. But I don't actually know if the mounting would be the same or if for some reason it just wouldn't be compatible from a cooling standpoint?
 
Was curious if anyone had any thoughts on the predicament, or knew from a technical standpoint if the the 2080 pump wouldn't work on a 1080 card. (I know it doesn't list it as compatible, but I don't know if that's a "we don't support this" type of listing, because warranty, or a flat "nope, won't work" listing!)
 
 
Technical info of my cards:
Part Number: 08G-P4-6188-BR
Description: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming, 08G-P4-6188-BR, 8GB GDDR5X, HYBRID & LED

    I am not sure about the 20xx series pumps, but I have 9xx and 10xx pumps (Hybrid kits) and the pumps are indeed the same
    So if you can find used or new old stock it will work
    Other option is like the NZXT bracket and corsair AIO that will work with the bracket (Some other AIO work)
    There are also other brickets and AIOs out there that will work
    Or get a full water block and go custom loop. Very good option I believe.
    Find a used, dead air cooled card on ebay and convert yours to air cooling using the fans and heat sinks.
    Sell the cards you have and upgrade to a 20xx series cards
     
    That's about all the options I can think of.

    Thanks for the response!
     
    Do you know what these are off the top of your head? If the bracket i have with my card can work with the NZXT CPU cooler, that's an option i'd consider provided i could use my existing 1080 shell, but I didn't think it would fit?
     
    If you've heard of anyone who's done something like this, would love to read their post!

    You can read the info to see all the AIO coolers it supports.  I think another Co. make a bracket, but I can not remember off hand.
    I do see some cheaper on ebay if you use ebay 
    This is one
     https://www.newegg.com/nzxt-rl-krg12-b1-gpu-mounting-kit/p/N82E16835146062?Description=gpu%20aio%20bracket&cm_re=gpu_aio_bracket-_-35-146-062-_-Product
     
    in white and cheaper.

    Nevermind...had brain gas and did not notice the -BR which is a one year warranty.

    Hey all,
     
    Just thought I'd inquire in this thread as well instead of creating a new thread. I'm starting to see 68C temps on my FTW 1080 Hybrid, which seems much higher than a hybrid card should be. The card is working brilliantly, no under-clocking or anything like that. But it is obvious the AIO is dying. I emailed EVGA about it and they were basically zero help, just telling me that the 10** parts are no longer in production and not available. Did not attempt to provide any help with mitigating my heat situation. I would consider buying a 20** hybrid kit to salvage the AIO out of it, because i'd rather spend more money doing that than doing a NZXT Kraken with a different AIO. 
     
    Does anyone know if a Corsair H55 will work? I read briefly somewhere that it would work if you swap the plugs between the hybrid pump and the H55 pump, but i have not been able to find a definitive answer on that. I guess if all else absolutely fails, I'll be doing a Kraken w/AIO. But as OP said, I'd prefer to keep the factory aesthetics.
     
    I'm also wondering if it's just a thermal paste issue. Not sure how much performance degrades over time, but I think before I do anything I will re-do the TIM with TG Kryonaut and see if that nets me any improvement. I've read about some pretty high temps resulting from aged/dried/cracked thermal paste.
     
    Just kind of sucks because now i have a card that is otherwise perfect, but to EVGA it's just a dead card when the AIO fails. Which sucks. I work for a large company and we support our products for 5-7 years, most cases longer. So it would have been nice if EVGA would have atleast kept some pumps on hand for users to purchase and keep their older card going. Or at least make it compatible with an easily sourced AIO from Asetek or Corsair or something. Not everyone can afford to buy the new cards when they come out, but they apparently don't care about that.

    Factory Hybrid card ?
     
    1) EVGA does offer the inexpensive option of EVGA Extended Warranty for total of 5yr or 10 yr - within 90 days of purchase (I went with 10yr on my 1080Ti FTW3 Hybrids)
     
    2) Basics:  Clean out the dust bunnies, Room Temp, have you cleaned the radiators, are your radiators set as intake ?  Case fans & speed - blow In or Out

    Generally speaking, either the pump runs or it does not. It is a single speed pump. Your description sounds more like you need to redo the TIM on the card. So I agree with you that changing the TIM would be a good move, first.

    Factory hybrid yes.
     
    I think I'm well outside the ability to buy the extended warranty. However i confirmed with EVGA that I am covered until Jan 2020.
     
    I have cleaned the rads. My radiator is set as exhaust, at 100% via mobo header.

    Yes the pump works. However i am worried about evaporation of the fluid, and the cold plate getting clogged up. Basic AIO worries, being that they are not user serviceable. i will start with TIM though. Thanks for the replies guys

    Intake - coolest air to radiator will work better = lower temps
     
    If the pump has failed there are no user serviceable parts ---> would require replacement of the AIO pump/radiator assembly
     
    Glad it is under Warranty - EVGA RMA

    The way my case configuration is, I cannot make it an intake currently. But i have an idea of how to make that happen that I might try in the near future. Involving 140>120 radiator/fan adapters lol
     
    EVGA says the 10** parts are no longer made nor available, so if the cooler breaks I imagine it would just be a GPU replacement all together. I have ~5 more months of warranty coverage, so if it gets alot worse during that time i will try to RMA it.
