Now this is something I’m far more interested in. Hard tubes and closed loop water cooling can be a pain to setup and install, especially for graphic cards … this could what the answer to all my problems.
EVGA today released four new all-in-one (AIO) liquid VGA coolers for its GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards, under its Hybrid Kit branding. The Hybrid Kit “400-HC-1184-B1” is meant for RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 XC, XC2, and Founders Edition variants. The “400-HC-1384-B1” is designed for RTX 2080 Ti Founders Editon and EVGA’s XC and XC2 renditions of the RTX 2080 Ti. Both these models are priced at USD $169.99. The “400-HC-1284-B1” is designed for FTW3 series cards based on the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080; while the “400-HC-1484-B1” is meant for the RTX 2080 Ti FTW3. Both these FTW3 variants are priced at $179.99.
These coolers earn their “Hybrid” name in being a combination of liquid and air cooling. An AIO pump-block pulls heat from the GPU, while a heatsink ventilated by a 100 mm fan suspended along a shroud cools the VRM areas of the graphics cards. A base-plate covers the memory areas, and transfers heat to the AIO block. A 120 mm radiator along with a 120 mm PWM fluid-bearing fan dissipate heat drawn from the GPU and memory. The shroud covering it all is studded with addressable RGB LEDs that plug into the aRGB header of the PCB.
