Holy cr@p - just saw that too - it wasn't $179.99 a few hours ago, I think it was $129.99. I wonder if it's been bumped up because EK have said they will delaying their system for a few months. Hope this is a typo..  You might get their money EVGA, but it'll probably be the last time you ever do for some.

Exactly. It was $119.99.  They increased the price 50% for essentially a functionally identical product. They've even reused the media materials from the 5188 model. We need an explanation that doesn't resemble gouging.

For that price I'm taking my money elsewhere, There's making a profit and then there's greed.

Price went up to $180?
 
Was definitely in at $120. Probably not at $180.

I know. And I see, $119.99 and $11....no wait, $179.00! And the product specs are identical. Yet for some reason, the 5388 price was increased 50%.  Sure would be nice to know why.

Inquiring minds want to know.
 
I was just told it was a 5 minute job to modify the 1080 kit... if that holds true it would be worth it.

Especially since the warranty on the AIO is only a year.

I just noticed the huge price jump too ...
 
Pretty dirty dealing right there ... I'll pass till the price inevitably drops ... I honestly don't expect the actual 1080ti Hybrid card (with cooler already installed) to drop at 900+ bucks ... 
 
Never expected to see such gouging from EVGA ... 
 
Bummer...

If your even marginally comfortable with a dremel then you will have no issues modding the 1080 kit ...

Don't need to mod anything at all unless you want the full shroud cover on it (for the Titan XP at least).

1080Ti needs mod otherwise the plate won't sit due to VRM's iirc.

This is what I don't get. They copied the media material from the 5188 INCLUDING the shroud that won't fit the 1080 Ti and increased the price 50%. Someone needs to have the marketing dept at EVGA stop with the liquid lunches.

The shroud and stock blower fan cool the VRM's *dramatically* ... on 50% fan speed, mid game (think Crysis 3 or Witcher 3) ... the air being vented out the back of my 980 Hybrids measures over 110F about the same as the air being pushed out of the radiator, which of course is only cooling the GPU die ... that's insane and there's no way I'd do without the shroud and blower unless I modified some sort of fan to blow over the VRMs ...
 
Just a thought as I've really studied the performance of my 980 Hybrid cards for the past two years or so ...

You're correct, the shroud channels the air and makes a significant difference. I'm just going by the video from Gamers Nexus where they claim the VRMs on the Titan XP run within spec even without half the shroud (note the fan is still there though). Also for the last 8 months or so we've had little choice for the Titan XP but to get creative while at the same time trying to keep the original shroud in one piece and not physically modded for resale/warranty reasons.

The only difference between the 1080 hybrid and the 1080ti hybrid are the mid plates.

And now they've dropped it to $159.00!! LOL ... (at least they are watching and considering folks angst) ... good job EVGA!  Still not cheap enough as the only cause for a price increase is demand ... but hey, at a point? I know it's business ... six months from now, it will most likely be $119.00 again but I'm not sure I can wait that long ... (damn you PayPal credit!!! LOL) ...

Pardon my ignorance, but does this hybrid cooler fit any founders edition? I just got an asus founders and its 83c the entire time while gaming. I have 30 day to exchange it, as of now they don't have any evga 1080 ti in stock at my local micro center.

Yes, It will fit all founders edition as the manufacturing was done to Nvidia spec without any third party alterations.

Thanks for the quick reply. Now its the waiting game.




No problem at all. Personally, I was kind of stoked about the hybrid kit until the pricing shenanigans occured. So here is currently what we are looking at.
 
- Getting a 1080 kit (119.99) and just using the pump [Shroud can be modified with use of a dremel and/or file]
- Waiting on EWKB's AIO modular solution to launch
- Biting the bullet and buying the 1080ti when it is released (currently: 159.99)
- Custom loop (I gauge about $315 including full cover block, pump, rad, reservoir, fittings, and tubes). Could probably be reduced if you went universal plate.
