Default EVGA GTX 980 HYBRID Review Comment Thread

Water cooling and graphics cards are two things that go perfectly together. EVGA's GTX 980 HYBRID combines both elements into a new card that features insane clock speeds, near silence and awesome performance.

Nice review Sky. Would love one of these, actually would love two of them.

One quick question, how long are the hoses running between the rad and the card?

Judging from the length of the car, and the size of the rad in the picture, they look to be about 12-14"?

Nice review, though would have liked to see pictures underneath the shroud. Looks like a beast card.

I also noticed that you can get just the water cooling parts as an upgrade for your existing 980 for $99US

EVGA - Products - HYBRID Water Cooler (All in One) for GTX 980 - 400-HY-H980-B1

Well once it comes out that is.

That certainly beats (price and aesthetics and probably performance too) the only other options I know of for AIO cooled GPU (NZXT bracket and a AIO or AIO and zip-ties and some custom heatsinks for the ram / vrm)

We can expect a 980 Ti review next week on 28th. R9 390X is most likely going to take time. I think R9 390X launches on June 24th which is when we can see reviews.

I seriously hope these and and the Skylake's get announced/soft-released at computex. I've got the upgrade itch and the mitx build that's my in between from X58 to whatever I get next is just not beefy enough.

I'd really just like to know if I'll decide to go Z170 or X99 and throw a 980Ti in it or not. If it's not at least 6gb I'll look at going another route. My X58 lasted from the release until last winter so I'd like to get another system that has some life length.

Though there's this original Titan for sale nearby.....
