I decide to venture in and take the leap on water cooling my 1080ti, I'm not to certain on the cooler I choose. I picked out the Thermallake 3.0 C. I have no experience with this cheaper cooler, its 120mm Radiator. Will this be a big difference then the Asus turbo stock blower cooler that I have? I already bought the watercooler it's on the mail this was just a after though question.. I am on a serious budget so this is what I can afford at the moment then I upgrade later. Thank you..

P.S I searched for any reference in thermal benchmarks for this setup but wasnt able to find anything.

The thing to keep in mind is to ask first then buy, not the other way round. I'd have picked up something on their supported AIO's list, here. The 3.0C version isn't listed in the support list but I'm assuming it should work, provided Thermaltake didn't change the mounting design. Case for your build? Do you have a 120mm fan mounting location that the AIO's radiator can occupy?
