While the NVIDIA Titan X Pascal is a GREAT card, the stock blower fan is VERY LOUD...and barely keeps the GPU at 80-ish C during heavy loads on an overclock drawing 120% TDP.

So, I bought an EVGA 1080 Hybrid kit, and decided to see if it would fit on the card. The goal is to use as many of the existing parts from the original Titan, and only use the special EVGA modded AIO...here we go!


Just got my brand new EVGA 1080 Hybrid Kit:

Let's get started...first, let's remove the backplate:

Let's take off the front face plate:

Man, I really don't want to take off the PCB heat spreader...but you have to because you can't get to the fan connector:

OK - first we need to take off the large aluminum heat sink. Nice job with the TIM application NVIDIA!

Nice and shiny GP102 Titan X Pascal GPU!

Doh!!!!

We have a Titan down, we have a Titan Down!!!!! Broke a wire off the fan header trying to take the connector off the board(cheap connector...geeze):

Tried to fix it and failed. Good thing the EVGA fan that came with the Hybrid kit worked!

And now for the money shot...currently running [email protected]:

The same work unit was running at 78 C. So, I will call a 23 C reduction in GPU temp (and super quiet) a success!! :thup:
