Gigabyte 2080 TI Gaming OC - was there a change in PCB?

    Hello OCers,
    I'm building 4 cards LC WorkStation. Due to lack of GB 2080 TI Turbo OC v 1.0, and after spending long hours in Internet i have found that I can use Gigabyte 2080 TI Gaming OC...
    https://imgur.com/dXlTpUs The design looks almost identical to FE.
    I wanted to use EK Vector Classic for those cards which in fact has a cut off for fan output.
    EK rep warned me the PCB has changed. Well, I know that Gigabyte is changing PCB but it often comes with changing of product code - which here didn't occur.

    Has anyone had any experience with different Gigabyte PCB for the same product number?

    @GIGA-Man Would you be eager to help me?



    Thanks

    Piotr

    Hey,

    The Gaming OC had an output change on the rear IO so the OCB changed. It was only a small change though, should be okay to use but cannot say that 100% as we've not had it to test.

    @GIGA-Man Thank you.
    I've got rev 1.0 and the EKWB FC Classic fits ideally.
    Good: I was able to transplant all thermalpads.
    Better: I've beaten few of my records with it.
    Best: It has even overtook: Aorus Extreme WB, Modified MSI SEA HAWK, Zotac AMP Extreme, NVidia FE with EK Vector WB....well it has taken it all.

    I will give pictures later.
    Thanks again and have a nice day.
