Hi everyone,

I own an Inno3d 2080 Ti iChill Black graphic card.
Link: https://www.inno3d.com/en/product_detail/page/56aa7eef1da667d00bad4bc2df21c7e1beee3a7c6ab7b7120f9506c96c7322da

The radiator has been acting weird recently as it is not cooling the GPU properly. Half of the radiator is cold and the other half lukewarm. I'm looking into ways to fix it which leads to my question.

If I was to change the cooling kit completely would it be possible to mount the Alphacool Eiswolf 2 AIO - 240mm RTX 2080/2080Ti FE (2070 & 2080 Super) onto the graphic card?

I've seen it done with Inno3D 3080/3090 iChill (of course with AIO built for 3080/3090 GPUs) but I'm not sure if it would work for my graphic card.
I wouldn't mind going with a cooling fan replacement instead of AIO water cooling as long as it fixes the problem.

Thank you!

It's very likely that the pump might be failing or there's cavitation. How is the radiator mounted in your chassis with respect to the GPU? A picture of your setup would help us two fold. You might want to contact Alphacool support with regards to that card since a non reference PCB will impeded installation that would otherwise be straightforward on a reference PCB design.

If this list is correct, then your GPU isn't supported by the AIO you're looking at;

It's also not showing up on the GPU configurator here;

One other thing that came to mind is to see if you can contact Inno3d and see if they might have an alternative cooling solution for the GPU or perhaps a replacement cooling unit.

Here is the setup: https://ibb.co/fSNbz0b
I have two of them. Malfunctioning one is disconnected. It does work but the temperature ramps up to 85 degrees as soon I use it for rendering or similar tasks.

I have contacted both Inno3D and Alphacool. We'll see what they say about AIO kits.

Forgot to ask. Would it be possible to install a waterblock on it create a custom loop instead of trying to find AIO kit?
I'm a newb when it comes to water cooling. That is why I went with AIO. :D
