    Wow, what an odd list of support this time around.
    It appears everyone's doing slightly custom boards.

    CPU & GPU: i7 9700k OC 5ghz / Zotac AMP 2080ti (Both EK Water Blocks)
    MB & PSU: Gigabyte Z390 Designare / EVGA T2 Titanium 1000w
    SSD & RAM: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB / Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 2x16GB (32GB) 3200MHz 
    Case & Fans: Lian Li O11 Dynamic / x9 EK-Vardar X3M
    Rads: Black Ice Nemesis 360GTX 360mm x 54mm / Magicool 360S G2 Ultra 360mm x 45mm

    No. None of EVGA cards are reference. XC3 is based on it, but still different.

    I was just looking at that:
     
    https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-vector-rtx-3080-3090-d-rgb-nickel-plexi
     
    Damn, answered my own question. EK states factory backplates are not compatible with thier block, and now they may not cover the EVGA cards?

    Does any know for backplates if I get a EK waterblock for a EVGA 3080 do you have to use the EK backplate or if you get a card with a backplate will it work with the EK waterblock? In other words if I am going watercooling on the card should  I get a black for $699 without a backplate or can I grab a better card at 749 or 769 price and still use the EK waterblock and EVGA backplate together?


    Nothing that EK has listed supports EVGA cards. As of yet.
    Just the list provided above, including a separate block strictly for the Asus Strix card.

    Aww lame! I just pre-ordered the reference EK block in hopes of using it on an EVGA card.

    Do you have a source for this or any proof that the EK block won't fit. I have my fingers crossed that EK just hasn't been able to physically confirm the blocks will fit EVGA cards but they still will. Can anybody from EVGA chime in on how far from reference the XC3 cards are? Taller caps? Different positions? etc.

    Same here, well almost.
     
    Added to my cart, checked here to see if anyone knows if they fit, then found this thread

    I don't buy any GPU that doesn't use a reference waterblock, because I'm over one-off waterblocks having 0 resale value down the line.  
     
    Looks like I'll be spamming the Nvidia store instead of EVGA if it's true it's not compatible.  The FE will at least be more desirable long term.

    EKWB and Alphacool both exclude EVGA, MSI, Gigabyte, and ASUS from their 3080 and 3090 reference block compatibility lists:
     
    Alphacool
     
    EKWB
     
    Just looking at the XC3 card boards, they are significantly longer than reference:
     
    https://images.evga.com/products/gallery/png/10G-P5-3881-KR_XL_1.png
    https://images.evga.com/products/gallery/png/10G-P5-3883-KR_XL_1.png
    https://images.evga.com/products/gallery/png/10G-P5-3885-KR_XL_1.png
     
    vs
     
    3080 Reference
    3090 Reference
     
    Frankly, the reference board dimensions are so tiny and jam-packed, that they leave little room for an AIB to add anything.

    I no longer jump on the bandwagon every time something new in computers comes out. However I wonder if I am lucky enough to grab an XC3 tomorrow to have it now if the EVGA step up program will be optimal for upgrading to water cooling seeing how different all the boards are on the most well known brands (evga, asus, msi ect ect) are. Who knows maybe someone will make a special block before then.  Decisions decisions o.0

    EKWB is working on blocks for custom AIB boards, as well as the FE boards. They already have a preorder up for ASUS Strix blocks.
     
    EKWB
     
    Upcoming NVIDIA RTX 30 Series Water Blocks
     
    There are probably a lot of questions about other RTX 30 Series water blocks as well – for the AIB cards and Founders Edition especially. EK water blocks for the Strix and TUF Series graphics cards will follow in a matter of days, while the Founders Edition water blocks will take a bit longer since EK is preparing something really special for those graphics cards.

    As has been stated in previous threads, step up is limited to only one or two types of cards and likely only the base models. So it's risky to plan to step up to a hybrid or hydrocopper card.

    Can any of you watercooling nerds tell if the inlet / outlet location on these new blocks are in the same place (at least width wise) for those of us using distro plates etc?

    Personally, I couldn't tell you until I actually see one physically attached to an EVGA card.
    This is not a good sign to me and I'm not going to rush into buying one without proof that it fits first.

    Agree.  I'd patiently wait to see the right WB for the card.

    Not sure.....I have been running SLi since 680 Series so always use a EK Terminal Block for 2 Cards.....my question is my current Terminal Block is a great support for 2 Cards ....takes all the weight....now with single card I'll be relying solely on the back bracket and hoping enough support on the single card by the tubing (its flex not rigid).......I'm pretty sure it will be ok as the newer PCI-E Slot locking mechanism seems fairly robust on my MXI-E Board..........like some here, I would never purchase a Block until I know for sure its compatible.....
    ...as for width if you mean thickness I believe the new Quantums are a fair bit thicker and heavier then previous ....

    I really wanted to buy an FTW card as I have always done but the fact that EVGA appear to be largely ignoring the EU regarding supply and the fact that EK are not even listing any blocks I'll probably be going with an ASUS Strix (F5 key/Stock permitting) this time around.

    I really wanted to buy an FTW card as I have always done but the fact that EVGA appear to be largely ignoring the EU regarding supply and the fact that EK are not even listing any blocks I'll probably be going with an ASUS Strix (F5 key/Stock permitting) this time around. 




    Asus - Yes Mobo's
    Evga - Yes GPU's
    FC WB's - Yes EK

    Apparently the XC3 cards are based on reference pcb but slightly different dimension. So no, the reference pcb block wont work on it.

    I don't believe any evga's are striaght reference, closest would be the black but even that is longer than reference

    I would wait for it to be confirmed since there could be minor differences

    Alphacool reference water block is confirmed to work on EVGA X3 cards, only issue is just part of the PCB where the 8 pin connectors are located will be exposed, which is not a problem IMO, I will just place a piece of nice aluminum sheet insulated from inside on front on that area since I have GPU mounted vertically, I won't see the back
    Just ordered it on performance-pcs

    I talked to EK about an order I had and asked about FTW3 and the response I was given was that a block is confirmed for October/Early Nov. Hope this helps you guys.
