    Does anyone have a list or know companies that have released AIO coolers for the Titan XP specifically? I know certain hybrids like the EVGA model for the 1080 can be slightly modded to work with the Titan XP, but I'm wondering if people know any confirmed AIO's designed for the Titan XP, cause I can't find any.

    Thanks!

    I believe there are none as of right now, and the only prepackaged solution of any kind that you can get is one of EKWB's pre-filled waterblocks + quick disconnect for attaching to one of their Predator AIO's.

    I just bought two 1080 hybrid ones for my Titan X pascals and never looked back. You don't actually need the shroud it's more for aesthetics than anything so there's no cutting or modifying needed. EVGA did just mention a few weeks ago that we should be seeing Titan X Pascal hybrid kits in the next few weeks but they've been saying that every month for the past 6 months.

    how hot does your memory/vrm get without the shroud on it to guide air flow over the hot top plate to cool it?

    I have the EK pre-filled and it's great. Low temps and my Titan clockes over 2100mhz and maintains it. Don't think it's gotten over 50c with being in the same loop as my overclocked 5960x on one triple radiator.

    EK is coming out with new AIO solutions "this Spring" according to their website to replace the Predator. I am on my third Predator (one 360 two 240s) and knock on wood the latest one, unlike the others has not leaked since I installed it in early December, . They have had some QC issues, but their customer service has been top shelf in getting them replaced as soon as possible. My 1.3v 4.5Ghz 5820k will hit 68-70C when gaming, but it shares the loop with one of their Titan XP blocks with QDC. The XP will hit 53C with a few hours of gaming clocked at +200 Core +500 Mem. It is quiet and works quite well. Hopefully their replacements will be better built and perform as well as the Predator line.

    Not specifically, but the Kraken G10 works on it. It's recommended to get some extra passive cooling for the VRAM and VRM if you go that route, though.

    I used the EVGA 1080/1070 Hybrid water block on mine. You just pop off the top shrouds, the clear plastic bit that is a part of the shrouds, and the vapor chamber. 10-15 allen headed screws and the four spring screws on the back that hold the vapor chamber on. To me it's the best solution because you get to keep the mid and back plates, so there are no worries about RAM or VRM cooling.

    I've seen people add some heatsinks around the block too, like in this pic:

    What size heatsinks do you think these are? I would like to order 4 of them before ordering the 1080 hybrid, so i can get more passive cooling over the memory. thanks!

    There is no need for any extra cooling, the mid plate and back plates are plenty.

    Yeah, it really isn't bad. I also left the rearmost part of the shroud on and the little side strips as well. They clear the EVGA pump and look kinda cool.

    just completed it! i'm getting 20-22C idle, and currently 44C load in h1z1, boost clocks are around 2062.5 and tick down to 2050. have afterburner set to +200 core and +450 memory.

    took me like 4 hours to do the installation cause i was so nervous lol

    I also left the shroud on, but took off the housing for the vapor chamber that holds the acrylic window on. looks nice indeed!

    I plan to do this to my recently acquired Titan XP. Little late the show but late is better than never! Any other advice? I have seen some use the Evga baseplate and fan that come with the kit, just requires a little dremel work. But what you guys have done seem simpler to me.

    Fully tearing down the card is SO not worth it. I did it a few times trying another solution and believe me, if you are simply looking to add the eVGA CLC this is the way to go. I left as much of the existing shroud on and the stock mid and back plates as well.

    Ok that is good to know. I will be installing today so I will post back how it goes. The card seems to be a strong overclocker, just the stock cooler can't handle it.

    Went without too much trouble. It was hard jamming it into my NCASE M1 but I managed and am pretty happy with the performance. My overclock I ran while on air is netting me 2025-2076 clocks (+200 core/+500 mem). I am curious now how much more it can take. Very happy regardless!

    Be careful - that guide leaves one chip on the PCB without cooling. No idea if it needs it or not, but I'd personally be cautious.

    I wish Asus was doing more of their Poseidon Series, I really like the hybrid option and my card hardly ever exceeds 49°C. MoRa3 ext. radiator 4x180mm.

    Buying a brand new card and voiding warranty is just a but risky with a 900€ card..or even more for Tesla. I am unsure how Asus would deal with the RMA if the card breaks for whatever reason.


    Any experience if Asus turn RMA down if you have watercooled it yourself ?

    I do know that they do accept boards that bricked due to oc, no questions asked ( had that 2 x lately ). Same to Intel, 6700k clipped at 4700MHz, Intel replaced it. But how about VGA cards ??

    EVGA_JacobF has said news may be coming out about the hybrid kit soon. Of course, he's been saying that since November...

    Thanks for the heads up and good to know, seems they suggest beginning Q2 for the new Modular Liquid Cooling.
    Definitely will keep an eye out for that as the Predator AIO had good performance when reviewed.
    BTW where did the leak occur for you and was it same place both times?
    Thanks

    Sorry for the late reply, did not see the question until just now. It leaked at the same place both times, where the tubing connects to the radiator. I have seen a fair number of people commenting that theirs have leaked in the same place, but (knock wood) the third one has worked really well for several months now. As much as I like the Predator idea, I will probably go full water next time or wuss out completely and go for AIO on GPU and CPU, assuming the card I get after I am finished with my Titan XP has that option. I put the EVGA 980ti hybrid cooler and shroud on my Titan X Maxwell and it worked quite well. It saved me while waiting on my RMA from EK. I had to get something to cool my CPU as well since they were both in the same loop, so I went with an H100i v2 and it allowed me to keep the 1.3v 4.5Ghz OC on my 5820K. I cannot say often enough how phenomenal EK's support and RMA service was. I will definitely use them if I go full water or if their next AIO iteration looks promising.

    Hmm, if I do go with their next AIO solution seriously thinking of possibly using some specialist epoxy composite (or something more suitable) around those points, if anyone tries this need to be careful which product used as not all epoxy are designed for this.
    Thanks again.
