AIO Cooler for RTX 2070
« on: 19-January-19, 11:48:13 »

Is there an AIO Cooler that can be attached to an RTX 2070 yet ?

NZXT's G12 doesn't show support for the 2070.

Perhaps you can mod the G12 to fit the RTX 2070 mount points.

I'm interested in connecting an AIO cooler to an MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z 8G.

Has anyone tried this ?

Or is it too much of a risk in voiding the warranty given reported failures with the stock cooling system ?

MSI customer support stated that users installing an AIO cooler on their video card will not void the warranty as long as you don't damage the card itself.

I ended up modifying an NZXT Kraken G12 to support an NZXT Kraken X41 AIO cooler on an RTX 2070.

It took a bit of Dremel work and PlastiDip, but the 2070 now has a working AIO cooler. The biggest challenge was drilling new holes on the bracket to support the screw mounts on the video card.

To enhance the cooling, Enzotech copper heatsinks were added to the memory and VRM chips. Mounted above the video card are (3) 40mm PWM high static pressure fans attached to a PCI side mount fan bracket. The fans speeds are controlled by a Corsair Link Commander.

There was a video on Youtube showing how to make the bracket mod.

The AIO cooler keeps the idle temp around 24° C and average load temp in mid-40°s C.

Seems like a major oversight of AIO cooler manufacturers to overlook support for the RTX 2070.

It's curious how NZXT is excluding 2070 support for their Kraken G12 bracket.
