Phanteks announced their G1080 water block for GTX 1080 Ti's a while back but we hadn't seen it in action until now.  [H]ard|OCP installed the cooler on a Founders Edition card and created a video of the process.  Not only do they show how to properly install the water block they also cover a few of the possible issues you might encounter while doing so.  They also made a video showing how the coolant flows through the waterblock which is not only pretty but can help you determine where to insert your GPU into your watercooling loop.

"Phanteks recently sent us its Glacier series water block for our Founders Edition GTX 1080 Ti. We take you through the full process of getting it installed. We check out the mating surfaces of the GPU, capacitors, and MOSFETs and show you just how well it all fits together. Then finally we show exactly how the coolant flows in 4K!"

Glad the FE version mates well with its surfaces. I have the 1080 Ti Aorus version and while beautiful, they are missing a screw hole and the vrms don't even make contact with the thermal pad, they are 1mm off. No vram vrm cooling either which I know probably is OK and apparently common to skip but I am going to have to add a little heatsink, at least there is space for that. Pretty sloppy design
