    Hey all.

    I have a msi 2080ti trio and it seems my only path for watercooling is either an nzxt g12 bracket and an aio....or this acrylic and copper block
    https://shop.bitspower.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=7097&search=BP-VG2080MGX

    I was considering going for a custom loop and using the ek kit then buying some extra parts second hand like a 320mm rad and fittings https://www.pccasegear.com/products/39331/ek-fluid-gaming-a240-liquid-cooling-kit

    But then it hit me....the kit is aluminium and the block is copper....so I'm back to the drawing board.

    I have a h150i on my 9900k and it keeps it at a reasonable temp considering its 5ghz all cores. 35 odd idle and 50 while gaming.

    So I'm thinking I might just go down the nzxt g12 path so that I can get my gpu to a better heat/noise ratio. The benefit of going aio is that I can get another corsair and i won't require any new software.

    Just use automotive coolant to help prevent the galvanic corrosion?

    Thanks. Can you suggest something ? Is it just normal coolant you get from super cheap?
