I guess I should look into it, I had a white shroud printed for my MSI GTX 970 Gaming 3.5G a while back actually.

My thoughts exactly, a big **** you to Corsair.

I wish I could return the AIO cooler I bought for this thinking it would be released this year, but way past return policy at this point. Good customer support would be for them to buy it back, then I can go on without ever buying a Corsair product again.

Surprised that EVGA haven't capitalised on this and started including a blower fan with their hybrid kit.

It's in stock on the European store page and a few other stores in the UK, just wish I knew where to get a blower fan.

If Evga had included the blower fan, I would have bought that kit months ago to go with my Evga card. Its to bad

Actually, I installed the EVGA kit on my friends card. As long as you have a reference card and not the ACX2.0, you reuse the existing blower. Not only that, with the EVGA kit, the shroud actually covers the entire card and cooling block. Meaning, the exhaust fan for the VRAM actually exhausts out the back of the chassis. As far as I know, the Corsair kit doesn't have a shroud that goes over the top to cover the whole card and cooling block, so the VRAM exhaust dumps into the chassis.

Can someone confirm?

I have the 980 Ti ACX 2.0+ reference clocked card too (managed to get it to 1530MHz @ 1.25v with a custom BIOS, hoping for 1600+MHz @ 1.28v with either the HG10 N980 + H80i/H75/H90 or the hybrid kit). I'm keeping an eye on eBay for any Nvidia reference cooler to pop up... just want that little fan lol.

It is only the blower fan and the 3 little screws I would need, right?

The problem with the EVGA cooler is that the radiator is too small. And that the cooler head is special-designed (instead of designing a bracket), so the EVGA bracket cannot be used with an h100i GTX.

So its much better to wait for the HG10 N980. Then you people with really large chassis can put a h110i GT/GTX on the GPU, and those with a bit smaller, can use h100i GTX. And even the h80i GT is better than the cooler that comes with the EVGA hybrid, since the h80i has a thicker radiator, giving more Surface cooling area.


And anything you will miss with the EVGA is Corsair Link. It will be very nice when my HG10 N980 arrives, when I will be able to monitor liquid temps and such even on the GPU.

Well, we did have this a few days ago.
