I was thinking about upgrading my GPU with this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0713XX64Y/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza, but I can't find any YT videos explaining where the fan installs. What gives?

Depending on the case you have, the fan/rad assembly  installs in place of the rear fan or under the top, assuming you don't have a top radiator.  Most of the time it's against the back wall because of the hose length.  You could also mount it over the rear fan for a push pull fan setup, not that it makes a whole lot of difference.

I have a HAF-X case and I had an extra top fan installed when I bought PC since it was designed for 2 but only came with 1 top fan.

So what you're saying is that if I go with this fan, I'll have to remove a fan to make room for the fan that comes with the card?

I'm not sure what length the cooling tube is on that card, but for most, you remove the rear fan on the back wall and mount the card's rad and fan there.  Have the fan blow out toward the rear.   The top 200mm  fans would stay put.  Where you mount the rad/fan is dependent on the tubing length

The fan on that 1080ti is a 120mm fan, so the rear 140mm fan on the HafX would be removed and the new assembly mounted there.  Usually.

FYI...it's not just a fan, but a fan and radiator assembly.

Didn't realize it was fan/radiator. Thanks for the help.
