Upgrading Original C1-GTX to 1080TI

Recommended Posts

Hey ya'll I've been a huge fan of this product since the beginning and have heard from a few of you upgrading your C1 to a 1080 TI from the original GTX.

 

I am very familiar with opening up the product having already installed a NVME, more RAM and more. I believe all that is needed to upgrade to the TI is an upgraded Power Supply and a Specific 1080TI card to match the current AIO Cooler.

 

Can anyone, maybee you Corsair Dustin, let me know the model needed for the Power Supply and Type of 1080TI card / any other items needed for this mod?

 

I would really appreciate it. Thanks again C1 Brothers and Sisters.

Hello fellow C1 owner

 

I'm not anything to do with Corsair but on another thread I believe an employee states the following SF600 PSU will physically fit:

(edit) original thread here:

I see someone else states they got the SF750 to fit in the i160 which outwardly at least is a near identical chassis?

I believe the statement on the 1080ti is going to be that you need a custom bracket to hold the cooling block on (again, I'd have to search on the forum a lot to see where it was I saw this).

 

(edit) See a discussion thread here for the not so great news, but: "The 1080ti in the one is a modified version of MSI DUKE card with our HG10 bracket attached to it."

Not directly about your query, but everything else I noted about the Corsair One from the forum:

 

Lots of successes with an improved 140mm fan in the top it seems. No major changes to lighting possible due to lack of space for a lighting controller. (edit) some discussion here:

Crashes/graphics cards issues: double check the PCIE cable or change it. (edit) some discussion here:

Motherboards: someone said the ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming Mini-ITX motherboard fits (in an i160 version...), but note that Corsair say the X299 absolutely wont as they had to modify a daughter-board in order to get it to fit for the stock version in the later models.

(edit) dont use the corsair PCIE cable with the Z390 boards though, reason on page two of this thread:

Original MSI board is still vulnerable to one of the Intel security issues as there's no bios update

At least one Corsair One owner (Bocefuss4500) has gone the Ryzen route via a Asus ROG Strix X470-I Gaming and lots of other cool bits :)

Did I miss anything about the corsair one? :) would genuinely like to know if there are any other tweaks not mentioned above

 

Hope this helps

@mylittleonepro hey well I will absolutely look into this information. Thanks for all your inputs. I really appreciate it. Can anyone else confirm mylittleonepro? Thanks again my dude.

 

I also noticed it mentions motified version of the MSI Duke 1080TI card. What modification could have possibly been done?
