    Anyone here with a Strix OC 2080ti that has maybe put the Kraken G12 on their card?

    Interested to hear how well it works

    Thanks

    have a look on your tube, many people have done in and the temps look good, but you need a lot of little heat sinks for the ram and vrm.

    Yes I did notice that potential issue which is why I was hoping to get some feedback

    I believe the AIO would only cover the core/chip, leaving the at least some of the memory and all of the VRM exposed.
    The G12 has a small fan that can cover some of the VRM area, the other is remains exposed

    How well do the little heatsinks work? My case has a side window so I'm wondering about how ugly it start to look by sticking on all those heatsinks

    Alternatively (although many times more expensive) a custom loop would be better, but EKWB doesn't have a block yet

    the G12 looks a lot better than a G10 however looks are down to the end user
    The problem with the little heat sinks is there can fall off if you don't prep the components right, i used thermal glue
    when i used one on a 280x everything was very cool even with a massive overclock.


    TBF depending on the set up you go for a custom GPU look could be not too much more
