Waterblock for a 2080ti

3 hours ago, Samsonite Bag said:

I am planning on water cooling a 2080ti. Is it better to get a FE card and use a Heatkiller IV ( Or maybe a reference PCB Evga card) or should I get an Evga Hydro Copper 2080ti, or a FTW3 with an EKWB block? Would I get any improvements by going with an AIB or should I just stick to an FE card? I'm currently leaning towards getting an FE and I'll probably (or at least attempt to)  overclock it higher. Also are there any warranty issues with taking a shroud off a FE card, if so then I'll probably go with a reference PCB Evga as I have heard that they have the best customer support and don't void warranties like that.

I got EKWB Waterblocks and they work great on my 2080 Tis.

I'm using FE. Clocks seem to be better on FE. I got two, and they both match 2145Mhz OC.

 

I don't remember seeing "Warranty void if removed" sticker on 2080 Ti FE.
