This one will work ?? http://www.xs-pc.com/waterblocks-gpu/razor-rgb-gtx-1080-1080-ti

Or a better one or less expensive ?
XSPC should work.

Nvidia reference designs and founders edition only)
https://www.overclock.net/forum/18067-ek-water-blocks/1627564-waterblock-evga-gtx-1080-ti-sc-black-edition.html

As confirmed above..to my recall, the SC is a FE design, just a upgraded Heat sink.
The FTW3 is where things get really complicated and over engineered.

So SC should work with any FE design.

OK so here is what my friends at evga tell me.

1. The FE waterblock will fit... eK's will, however, you need to mod the card slightly.
You need to physically remove a fan header, to make the block sit flush.

2. The eVGA waterblock would fit as well without mods.
It lists the hydro version as compatiable, and my friend again said, the hydro AIO version is the same pcb as the air cooled one, so if one fits the other should.

However good luck finding the evga block.
I have spent about 20 min looking for it, and well, sigh.... no luck

This is what you want if you can find it:
https://www.evga.com/support/manuals/files/400-HC-5599-B1_manual.pdf

which is the same block shown here:
https://www.amazon.ca/EVGA-GeForce-GAMING-GDDR5X-Technology/dp/B073GYYBHJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1515793968&sr=8-1&keywords=EVGA+1080+Ti&th=1

The waterblock is the normal FE design.
Evga only had 2 designs.. one was FE, the other was FTW3.
Ignoring the Kingpin one, because well, i heard less then 100 was made for that one, as you got the card to LN2 and not watercool.

My friend also says you MIGHT try and get lucky with calling eVGA and asking if they have one in the back not listed on there site.

I swore I just saw somewhere that Evga discontinued their block in the last week. They are quickly phasing out the Pascal parts so I wouldn't be surprised if that's true.

Did any of you guys try the suggestion No1 from aigomorla?
I also did a bit more digging in the interwebs an found one that didn't modify the card but the water-block.

Working but not necessarily nice so it would be interesting if somebody did modify the card.
