Does the gtx1080ti Posiedon and Strix share the same pcb - EK waterblock question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i have a failed fan on my 1080ti Poseidon its under warranty but i dont mind it being dead since its on water anyway. but I've been getting massive sag due to the beefy weight of the air and water cooler combo. Question is this. does the pcb of a Poseidon and a strix match. EK claims it does but does anyone know from experience!

They do look very simmilar, find a picture of the stryx card (buildzoid did a on pcb analysis on it) take the cooler off the poseidon abd compare the pcb. They must be nearly identical. However a support bracket might save you from the gpu sag. The easiest one is a piece of acrilic/petg tube between the gpu and the bottom of the case or psu shroud
