You're really going to put a 55$ water cooler on a $400 graphics card?

 

Besides, the cooler on that gpu isnt horrible

Pretty easily enough, Ihave a 1080 + 8086k on the same 2x92mm loop and the 1080 runs at like 48c


Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious

but your talking about custom water cooling right.

Yes, it fits and would easily be enough for cooling for a 1080. A 120m AIO is generally plenty for just about any gpu that isn't heavily oc'ed. 

I don't see many in-depth benchmarks of it but TechRodent's review seems to indicate that it performs about the same as other 120mm AIO's and popular cooling brackets like the NZXT Kraken G10.

It will fit, it will likely lower your temps, is it worth it... if you want to try it and don't mind taking your stuff apart, sure!

ya that what am scared of taking it apart?? If am scared to take apart my memory heatsink to put an RGB headsink i think ill stay away.

Using an weaker pump and a tiny radiator.  I'll let you in on a secret, AIO's are only bad because the pumps and evaporation.  The GPU will see a massive drop in temps

In order to install this cooler onto your GPU, it does require disassembly of the card down to the PCB (the electronics board). in some cases this is as simple as removing the 4 GPU cooler retention screws and unplugging the fans and LED's, there is the possibility that there could be more involved as I am unfamiliar with the current gigabyte coolers.

 

after removing the old cooler you'll have to install the new cooler, this may require thermal paste application by hand if it does not come pre-spread on the water pump coldplate.

 

The above steps do require some care and caution, particularly when tightening screws and working around the GPU silicon as unlike a CPU with a heat spreader it is a bare silicon die that if handled roughly or incorrectly could cause damage.

 

My recommendation, watch a few videos on hybrid GPU cooler installation on youtube and you'll be able to determine if it something you're willing to tackle.

ill have a pc shop do it for me if he doesnt charge so much and watch him do it.  of have him build a custom water cooler for me hope it do cost more the $500

Stick with the cooler that came with the GPU. No sense in getting this for what will most likely result in 3% extra overclocking performance.

k ill stick with fans thank you

Water is better than air. Especially for pascal cards. I’d do it if I couldn’t do custom cooling.

ya but my card at max 100% usage on 1080P is 58C-60C and on 4k is under 68C and i heard that really good temp for my 3 fan cooled GPU, then again my GAMING ROOM is 65F/18C

Sure that is good. But there is always room for improvement.
