    I know EK blocks will be available, but I wonder about *good* blocks like Heatkillers. I expect you'll be waiting a few months for those eh Daz? Or is there any word at all from Watercool?

          I can only imagine what the Aquacomputer one will cost. I've seen some pics, and it looks gorgeous, built in temp sensor / flow meter on a single LCD screen. That one should cost megabucks.

            From what I've been reading all the block manufacturers are coming out with something special for the FE editions.

              Those are some steep prices on blocks.

              In other news, I've cancelled my 3080 pre-order after the disturbing news about AIB's cheaping out on the caps, which is causing stability issues with alot of the AIB Partner cards.

              I think I'm going to wait this out a while and eventually buy a 3080 with a pre-installed block.

              If you haven't heard the news yet, here's a link to a great summary video from Jayz2cents:

              I feel bad for anybody that fell for the scalpers and bought one of these cards off ebay way above MSRP.

                I have heard that heatkiller is not making founders block. Aquacomputer maybe same situation. If you have founders you can send to optimus and they will make you an block as they need samples.

                  This is the nicest looking Founders Edition block I've seen so far

                    Interesting design for sure. Wonder how convenient they will be with the terminal on the side like this. I hope to see some builds done with this soon!

                      I hope so but hard to say. Most of us are stuck waiting for GPUs rather than waterblocks. The situation isn't the best i will say, prices are higher than 2080TI blocks. I myself had my eyes on Optimus Strix Block but man they are expensive. Ranging from 250USD (Copper with Thin Backplate) to 380USD (Nickel with Thick Blackplate). EKWB/Aquacomputer/Heatkiller should all be in the same price range of 200-300USD (depending on backplate and accessories).

                      1. Only EKWB/Alphacool supporting many blocks.
                      2. Heatkiller is XC3 (reference) and one of the FTW3/Strix (results to be announced shortly)
                      3. Aquacomputer is XC3 (reference) and they just came out with Strix render
                      4. Optimus has XC3 and FTW3 Ready. Tuf and Strix is to come. - All that 2080TI research and people sending them samples allowed them to come out with block in time.

                      If i get ahold of even an Radeon 6900XT, i would consider sending it to Optimus myself.
