View Full Version : Founders Edition GPU block not compatable with actual Nvidia brand?

So I was looking around the GPU waterblocks as I am probably going to just have to buy a new card from Nvidia directly since no one else on the planet has any direct sale of their GPU's, and saw on the compatibility crat for the Founders Edition GPU block that Nvidia isn't listed anywhere.

Is it safe to surmise that as it is Nvidia that it is understood that it will fit? Or was every other manufacturer BUT Nvidia made compatible with this block?

Founders Editions are Supported by Default, no Matter if they are shipped by Nvidia ore one of the Boardpartners, they are all mechanical 100% identical! No Matter which Founders Edition Model you choose, you will have to use the original hexagonal Socket Screws of the FE Aircooler to replace them to the on the Glacier FE preinstalled ones. No big Deal, the Glacier comes with a matching Screwdriver for the Hex Screws. Benefit of the Action is, that you can re-use the Backplate of the original FE Cooler.
Hope, this helps a little..
