I asked Phanteks support if my card would work with:
GLACIER G1080 FOUNDERS EDITION TI
PRODUCT CODE : PH-GB1080TI_X.
Phanteks reply was: Only works with FE PCB. End.
Sounded like that was a no, but after some research I was conflicted. Other sites such as EK and Aquacomputer showed a lot of FE blocks would fit according to their configuration tool. I learned my card had a reference pcb, same as FE cards,black cards and black oc cards. If their blocks for reference 1080ti pcb would fit my card why not Phanteks'?
So I replied back stating the above. Their response was FE pcb and reference pcb are the same. End.
I guess they meant to say yes it actually does fit?
I responded back and said thanks for confirming that it does indeed fit but they didn't reply.
I guess, since they seemed confused and gave me conflicting answers, I'm just trying to confirm I can take my 600 dollar card apart and it will fit.
