I will do cable management inside case after pipe will be done. Outside- back case all cables managed.

Now I now why people using ptg pipes :) but when you get what's goin on, then you don't need them. But maybe next time I will use PTG.
With this pipes already done, one have bubbles. I was so upset that I decided to do it next day and leave it like that.
Today I will continue this transformation.

Here's a couple of quick finished pics of mine. Hate how I can't see much in my case. Huge cards block everything in the window haha

Re: Waterblock for 1080 Classified 2016/10/04 06:48:46 (permalink)
Forgot to take a pic after installing this.

Need to figure out something for lighting.. those pics I had to use flash just to see in my case. I have red leds hanging from around the fans but don't do much. Would be nice if I could remove the led lights from the original heatsink/fan from the card and place them on the side edges of the water blocks.. build some kind of shroud on the back side to cover them and they would light the cards up.

I've got a bunch of old black lights I could attempt to hang in there if it would do anything. Though something is telling me I need white lights to light it up.

Thank you. After quick setup precision xoc, 30min unigine I get 43C max on GPU. Max I get with mem +500 (5508) 2138mhz on GPU, Then 10 more i have freeze screen. But this was quick oc. Tomorrow I will start my work, no time for this and I need to wait till Sunday. One more thing - I need change soon cpu block for EK S EVO, mine inside get some rost after few years of use( mostly cleaned by aka dremel :)).
Picture with 2100mhz cpu / 5508 mem

Edit:
Not finish max oc but fully stable is on 2126 and mem 5400. But im happy with dhis results. Idle 31°C / load 43°C ( one hour test on unigine

You need to find out if 980ti classy will fit 1080 for you. I read somewhere, there is some differences but if you don't check then you don't know. In native res I have 2951 score with everything max ( I didn't think window mode make any difference). Finally everything worx perfect and games flying like rocket...
Thank you guys for any advice and good time with this project.

EVGA Classified 1080 Owners:

I've been emailing all known suppliers of water blocks etc. trying to see if we could get some water-block support going for CLASSIFIED 1080 and looks like my email to Alpha-cool paid off :-)

This is the first time I've heard about block support for 1080 Classified anywhere

See below:


=====================================================
Hi Nicholas,

We are working already on a block for this card which will be available at our shop within the next 5 to 6 weeks.

The description of the block is : Eiswolf GPX-N 1080pro-M05

Have a great day.

Betreff: Compatible waterblock - EVGA CLASSIFIED 1080

Kommentar:

Dear Alphacool,

I am trying to find a compatible waterblock for the EVGA CLASSIFIED 1080 Graphics Card.

EK was initially meant to be making a full-cover waterblock for this card (as they did with all previous EVGA Classified models) however they recently cancelled their plans to make a water block for this model.

You can see from the link below:


There is a growing movement online urging a company to make a waterblock for this card.

Due to the greater height of the Classified some of the most recent universal waterblocks are not even compatible (for example: "EK-Thermosphere ".

Because of the lack of a full cover block AND lack of universal block support for the EVGA 1080 CLASSIFIED; I believe there is a very big gap in the market for the CLASSIFIED.

The Classified 1080 is also EVGA's flagship 1080 model.

I firmly believe if you manufactured a waterblock the enthusiast PC community would definitely remember this.

I recently watched a video by "J's 2 cents" saying Alphacool was "reaching out" to the community so I thought it would be a good idea to get in contact.

I am very active on many enthusiast forums on the GPU scene.

Thanks for your time; I look forward to hearing your reply.

Nick Peyton

Hi were you able to push your clocks any higher by going water on your 1080 Classified?

I'm baack... sorta...
Guys, first of all... Sorry i vanished. Family stuff got in the way, both the bad and the good kind. The good being +1 family member in training.
 
Anyway. AHowes, i tried to answer that pm you sendt me in the middle of it all, but i have too low post-score to pm and... Yeah, i kind of gave up. Sorry.
As you guessed i used the screws that came with the 780waterblock+backplate. I was kinda cowboy-fitting them on as they where coned and i had no other screws handy. I'm sorry i wasn't clear about that and that i wasn't able to confirm the mm's of the tim-pads in time. Glad you got it working, though!
 
I'll try to keep an eye on this forum for a while.

I wish I had realized that the 980ti Classy block would fit on the 1080 Classy...I'd have bought them instead of the FTW.  

Oh well.....these FTWs are great overclockers.

Yes.  It's exactly the same block.  The blocks I used on my 980ti Classys actually say, "780" right on them.

EK has confirmed via email this resistor (circled in red) may cause a compatibility problem:
 

Did any of you who got this to fit run into any compatibility problems with this resistor? How did you work around it?
 
Can an EVGA REP provide 'technical diagrams' / measurements please?  -- to be forwarded to the R&D team at EK.
 
Thank you. :-)

Great question.  I'm curious myself as to how they avoided making contact, or if there was ever any danger of it.  It doesn't look like it's any taller than the memory modules, though.  If that's the case, you could insulate it from touching the block by using a thermal pad there.

Re: Waterblock for 1080 Classified 2016/11/26 18:42:46 (permalink)
Okay just received email back from EK_Grega this minute.

Here is the email:







EKWB Support (Grega) (EKWB Support)

Nov 27, 00:27 CET

Hello Nick,

did my best with the information I had (thank you again for detailed pictures).

Here is a sketch of how the contact area goes. The memory ICs are not completely covered and there is still a potential issue with the capacitor (marked red).
To rule out this issue we would need to physically check or have an actual model of the graphics card.
As such, I can't officialy confirm that the water block will fit.


Best regards,
Grega
 
 
Going to continue discussing a workaround with EK_Grega  so watch this space :-)

Still waiting on communication from EVGA (2 weeks since email and 6/7 days since posting on this forum). :-(

Re: Waterblock for 1080 Classified 2016/11/27 12:40:56 (permalink)
Received another reply from EK (EK_Grega had another look in his own spare time.

This guy is amazing.

Anyway here is the latest which I think I am definitely going to attempt.
 
 
[for full size image: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/attachments/workaround-jpg.81413/]



 
HOWEVER: The grinding may actually NOT BE REQUIRED: If you zoom in on the 2nd (bottom) picture very closely you will see that the 'step' on the block does indeed appear to "miss" the "side" of the resistor (marked red). But ONLY by a tiny tiny amount (I'd be surprised if they weren't actually touching). But I could easily use thin electrical tape to insulate.

If it DOES overlap I doubt the 'step' on the memory block would need to be grinded very much (probably less than 0.5mm would do.


However there are indeed guys at EVGA Forums who never had to grind the step who also spent hours checking contact with step & memory.
One has actually just PM'd me personally just to confirm this:


 
AHowes:
I bought the 780TI classified block.. It fit no problem. I did the GPU core check where you mought it and remove to make sure its getting solid contact and it was. Yes the memory part is a little off but enough of the memory is covering so no worries there. Did not notice that little cap in the way as I did check everything from every angle to make sure the block was flat on the memory and making perfect contact with the provided pads.
I did this to 2 1080 classifieds and so have others without issue.. no worries!
Allen
 
And also from EK
        EK_Grega:
Given that there are reports that users were able to install it I do think it should go withouth any modifications.
It would be the best to contact the user that already installed 780 Classy water block to the 1080 Classified and let him explain if he did some modfifications to the water block.

As for the installation.
I would use 0.5mm pads on RAM and 1mm pads on VRM part. Do check if there is proper contact on VRM (marked green). If not, then add 0.5mm thermal pad.
 
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
Anyway its time to go and try the installation (I'll keep you all updated on my progress - specifically regarding the resistor marked in red)
 
Have a good day,
 
Nick
