Rated 5 out of 5 by waxy Looks great!
First waterblock i have owned for a graphics card. Anything to quieten down reference cooler on the 980ti. First observation is this thing is a lot bigger and heavier than i imagined. Seems to be very well made (the base is solid metal). It looks great when on the card it is a real shame it is pointing down in my case as it does look very pretty.
Whilst putting a full metal block on a graphics card is somewhat worrying the instructions are quite simple and you do get extra heat pads in case you loose a few. I would recommend not torquing down the screws too much (it does mention this in the instructions) as to avoid cracking anything on the PCB.
As for temps:
77-80 degrees under load with stock clocks.
50 degrees under prolonged load with 155% power target and 1525Mhz on the core, radiator used is a 360mm.
