Lower its temperatures and get better performance out of your graphics card with the GTX 1080 Ti SC Hybrid Waterblock Cooler from EVGA. This aftermarket GPU cooler is designed for all reference-height EVGA GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards and features a built-in 120mm all-in-one liquid cooler with a 120mm fan. As a closed-loop solution, you won't have to worry about filing, tubing, or maintenance. It has a copper base for maximum heat transfer and dedicated VRM and memory cooling plates to cool the whole card. With a PWM fan, you'll be able to find a balance between noise and cooling performance. To increase its efficiency even further, you can install another 120mm fan for a push/pull configuration.

  • Sleeved tubing and wiring for a clean and sleek look
  • Copper base for maximum heat transfer
  • Dedicated memory plate with direct contact with the water cooling block
  • Virtually silent operation with dynamic fan control
  • Built-in 120mm radiator and fan for heat dissipation
  • Dedicated VRM and memory cooling

    EVGA Hybrid Waterblock Cooler reviews

    GTX 1080 Ti SC Hybrid Waterblock Cooler is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Painless installation on a Founders Edition Blower Style 1080ti I was prepared for a grueling install based on all of the frightening comments I read before I purchased this cooler, but after receiving and installing, I could not be happier. My temps never go above the low 50s and idles are in the low 30s. EVGA must have really stepped it up with good clear instructions and separate heatsinks for the processor and vrm. I have no fan rub problems on the shroud and I did not have to modify anything. I did add a pwm fan connected to my motherboard and use speedfan to control the radiator fan based on the GPU temps. Good luck everyone. I hope your experience is as pleasantly uncomplicated as mine was. Kudos to EVGA for improving their manual and design.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Very fast delivery, I wasn't expecting to get it that soon. Product itself is nice and well built, fits perfectly on the GTX 1080Ti founders edition. However, I wasn't ready. It required tools I didn't have (small hexagonal), and the screws are quite fragile so you have to be careful. A system like this needs to be tightened and I am not a monster of strength or a brutal dummy, but I broke one screw in half and wrecked one all while remounting the card. Which basically screwed me because now the fan is doing an heavy noise at high speed, which I managed to reduce using tighteners around the loose part. Hackish and dirty... But I got -20C under the same Overclocked load, which is what I wanted.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Effective but cheap construction and poor QC Pros: This has lowered my load temperatures by around 30c and idle temps by around 10c. Which is great. I'm now looking at GPU diode temperatures of around 2c over ambient. That easily performs as well as any custom loop I've built with far bigger radiators and a far stronger pump. When it's on it looks solid and neat. I don't think it looks as good as the original cooler on my SC2 but it does look better than the FE or blower cards. Cons: But this is an Asetek product. It's all aluminium. It could be copper and perform even more efficiently. The included thermal paste - which is slapped all over the cold plate and VRAM plate to excess - is poor quality and should be cleaned off and replaced with a reasonable amount of decent paste. The thermal pads are adhesive and low quality. They leave residue all over the ICs. I left them on but they could be better. The included radiator fan is noisy, of very cheap construction, and a very poor performer. It needs to be replaced immediately - I've replaced it with an ML120. The included fan isn't PWM, and neither is the connector to the GPU. So you're probably going to need a GPU to PWM connector to control the radiator fan via PWM. The LED is white only, so if you have an RGB card you'll lose the RGB. This isn't made clear (at the moment) anywhere on the EVGA site. The shroud is cheap and thin plastic, flexes easily, provides no rigidity to the card, and it's a pain to install. Some parts of the instructions are unclear and other parts are missing completely - for instance, on the SC2 the best way to remove the stock cooler is to remove the bracket first, or the cooler gets stuck under there and you can't get the connectors out. This isn't mentioned. On mine the copper VRAM plate is covered in spots - surface damage because the finish is poor and/or it's low quality copper. They couldn't be polished off. Incidentally, the use of copper on the coldplate is a gimmick (just like the other Asetek AIOs) and pretty redundant because the majority of the loop is aluminium, which has half the thermal conductivity of copper. It performs a more useful function as the VRAM plate because then it does a better job of transferring that heat to the GPU block. The pump is non PWM and there's no way to control the speed. So it's incredibly noisy because it runs at full speed all the time. To control it you need to hack up a solution with a mini-GPU connector to PWM and control it via the motherboard. But it does a great job despite all this. I don't have any concerns with its performance, but considering it only has a 1 year warranty, I have concerns for its longevity. This will make mincemeat out of 1080 Tis that run hot. Just make sure you budget for a fan, an alternative thermal paste, perhaps some new thermal pads, and a mini-GPU to PWM cable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well build kit, but shroud was warped causing the fan to rub The kit goes together very well, and once complete the performance increase is noticeable. However, I found my shroud was slight warped so the fan rubbed on the exhaust port. I ended up having to sand the port to create enough clearance. For a kit of this price I would assume a little more quality control.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dropped temps 40degrees C I got a bit nervous taking apart my $700 card - but directions were fairly clear, and did the whole install with no real issues. Immediate improvement. My 1080ti was hitting 80+ under load stock - I now barely break 45 under long-term load. MASSIVE improvement.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cools well but poorly designed 30C idle and 55C gaming overclocked which is the good part. Unfortunately the power supply fan rubbed the shroud which requires shaving the shroud. Based on search it's a common issue. Instructions were passable but could be much better. Included radiator fan is fine for 100 dollar range, too bad the Ti kit costs much more. I'd personally recommend the competitive universal product and copper shims (keep backplate) as this required more effort than that would.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke my video card installing Never broken anything after building computers for 5 years until now. The instructions are terrible. If you're buying this make sure you watch a video on youtube or something.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but... not as quiet as EVGA's factory assembled hybrid card. �Also runs a bit slower than the factory assembled card. �Still much quieter than the original fan cooler.
