Hybrid Gpu Cooling

    I built a pc about a year ago with a 7600k and a 760 4gb with the intention of getting some experience in building and easing my way into pc gaming. Now that a year has passed I decided that I’d blow my first k on computer parts and make an overkill build!

    My newest build is set to include a 3000 series Ryzen cpu, a gtx 1080 or better (depending on prices) and I would love to somehow incorporate water cooling. I have my eyes on the DeepCool Captian 240 EX RGB for my cpu but as for the gpu I’m not quite sure yet. 

    Many people suggest that air cooling is plenty for a gpu so I set my eyes on the gigabytes 1080 g1, but my lust for the best keeps pushing me towards evgas hybrid cards. 

    I know the hybrids temperatures are great, and I know it’s hit or miss as for how loud the pump is. I’ve seen plenty of benchmarks and they definitely perform well enough to persuade me to get one but I was wondering how reliable an integrated water cooler could be on a graphics card. 

    I suppose my question would be to the owners of an EVGA hybrid card of any kind is, what has your luck been with the reliability of your card? This applies to pumps, hoses or anything specifically water cooler related. Any other tips or suggestions for my new build are greatly appreciated.

I've been running SLI hybrid 1080s (980s before that) and haven't run into any issues.  They stay cool, quiet and are well worth the investment.

Just add a graphics card and maybe a cooler to your build now, and replace the rest of the parts next year.

I know, can’t wait ;)

 

I would do that but graphics cards prices are looking magnificent right now. Especially with the new series of titans hopefully coming.
