to keep from multiple posts surfacing today since the opening of the 3080 and 3090 hydro copper queues, If you get one of the cards, these two kits will work on the XC3 and FTW versions, Just make sure you choose the right one.  They are different.

possibly.  I got in on both 3080s because i have been trying to get a card for a year or more.  If I can step up with one, great. If not, selling.

No kidding. Bet EVGA didn't expect this. I see some dead 3080 HC cards coming from bad installs too.

Well the cheapest price I can workup on EKWB is $299 for a full kit. Its certainly tempting!

EVGA can't control how people do the install. Lots of people killed 3090's putting blocks on them.

I appreciate the post.
 
Does the Hybrid Kit go on the side where the Hydro Copper RGB plate goes now? 
 
Do you just remove the water block and install the hybrid kit?.
 
I see the compatibility tab on the hybrid kit page doesn't list the SKU for the Hydro Coppers.
 
Thanks,

 yes

 yes, along with thermal pads and paste that I believe comes in the hybrid kit
I see the compatibility tab on the hybrid kit page doesn't list the SKU for the Hydro Coppers.
 it won't show up in compatibility as EVGA didn't consider someone would take a water block off to install a AIO. its a performance loss. but the part that is important is the PCB. there are 2 types. the xc3 and ftw3. all 3080 3080ti 3090 cards fall into the xc3 or ftw3.
Thanks,

I never thought I'd see the day that people were buying cards with waterblocks so they can remove them and downgrade the cooler. I guess desperate times call for desperate measures, but really building a custom loop is not that hard, and the performance is so much better. Sure it takes a bit of research, but the payoff is worth it.

I purchased the 3080 ftw3 hc this morning and bought the hybrid kit, but now I'm thinking of doing watercooling (I'll keep the kit anyways). I'm willing to put some research into it before I attempt to modify the card. 
 
Do you have any recommendations regarding where to start with water cooling? Any good kits you recommend?

I would start by seeing what kind of radiator(s) you would want or need. It all depends on your case and what fans you will be using. Don't go with super thin radiators. The more surface area you have the better your cooling will be. But also make sure your fans will be pushing enough air for the thickness of the rad you choose. From there it's kind of personal preference and what will fit in your case. There are so many options for waterblocks, reservoirs, and fittings out there but most will work without issue. I haven't looked at any guides in many years and don't remember where I learned stuff from at this point, but I would read watercooling sections of other forums and ask questions. I would also recommend staying away from colored coolants. They will gunk up your parts and it's just much easier to clean and maintain if you use pure distilled water with additives only. I personally use mayhems biocide and corrosion inhibitor with distilled water only.

Please don't buy the HC cards just to ruin them with a hybrid cooler. I don't really care but, you're paying MORE for a card with a water block PLUS a hybrid cooler for WORSE performance lol
 
If you have extra cash just go to ebay/newegg/amazon and buy the card you want. Use your brain.

Does it matter which one I get for the drop that occurred today?


Yes, one is for the XC3 card and one is for the FTW3 card.

just wondering, the compatibility of the EVGA HYBRID Kit does not mention the HC variations,
how do you know it will fit?

I managed to buy the 3080 FTW3 HC this morning.
 
I'm now leaning towards a water cooling solution instead of desecrating the card with a hybrid cooler. 
 
Would it be prudent/advisable to just do a loop with the GPU only? I currently have a 240mm AIO on the CPU I could then do a full loop down the road on the next full build?  The CPU AIO is top mounted. 
 
So I could just front mount a radiator, and squeeze in a pump/resevoir and be up and running?
