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.

Its never even been opened yet.

thanks everyone

Yes it will fit. That model does indeed use the FE PCB, just with a cheaper cooler to produce added on instead of the FE blower.

So yes, that 1080Ti block you listed which will work on the FE PCB will work fine for your card also.

Thanks for the confirmation, Radox-0.
