I quite like it but I would want a fatter rad. Well, if you are going to chase the uber clocks any way. At around 2100mhz my Titan X gets uber hot and it's got a much bigger rad than this.

It needs something like the Fury X rad IMO. Something with more volume.

According to the review, it tops out at 46C after an overnight run of Heaven at the highest settings. Sounds pretty good to me!

I don't even know how that is possible. I can hold around 2000mhz with temps in mid 50s. Mind you to be fair I did water cool my card during the hot part of the year, which was pretty darn long this year.

I should do some more testing now temps are dropping.

One thing I have noticed, though, is that this looks nothing like the original Hybrid "kit" they were selling that mysteriously vanished from the shelves. Usually when you got one you would use your cooler guts but this looks like it's all been changed.

Maybe Tom put the PC next to an open window on a chilly evening. JK Tom! I've never been a fan of hybrids, but that does seem like quite the effective cooling combo.

Well I do know that the 1080Ti does not get as hot as a Titan XP. My card is insane fast though.

I love hybrids. I've had AIOs on my GPUs for years. Would have bought an EVGA if I could tbh, could have saved myself £70. Mind you, if I add a double rad I am sure my card would haul some serious ass

Its possible. AIO can easily challenge temps provided by custom loops these days.
My GPU tops out at 42 under full load. When I benched in the summer it was 56 so you could be right in saying the summer season affected what you recorded.

We had a fantastic summer tbh. Started in May and bar a few rainy and cloudy days the temperatures were nice. Enough for me to sit around in Ts and shorts for many many months. I've not even put my heating on yet tbh, was 18 down here yesterday..

I also come from (statistically proven) the sunniest town in the whole of the UK. So yeah, when summer comes it's wicked down here but you pay the price during winter (getting blown down the street, rattling old school windows and my curtains blow around like a scary ghost lol).
