unix443It’s a backplate not block mate.
richard203or u can wait for ek 3090 active backplate to come out, im waiting for them to come out
ObscureEmpyrerichard203or u can wait for ek 3090 active backplate to come out, im waiting for them to come outI could swear that EK already had a FTW active backplate for the 3080/3090 lineup, as I remember contemplated ordering one a few weeks back when I was ordering my water block. I distinctly recall opting for a standard backplate since I have a 3080 Ti instead of a 3090. Also, I recall seeing it in acetal (black), but now all I’m seeing is a pre-order for plexi (clear).
unix443Yeh true, but the manual says 1.5mm for those locations not 2.0mm.EK support verifies that, then proceeded to say contact with half of what should be making contact is “strange”, gee really?, and their response is now to open a RMA.I don’t see how a backplate that’s laser cut from a blueprint to precision can be “faulty”.Sounds like an I don’t know, and what’s easier for them is to replace it instead of trying to solve what the actual obstruction is.I don’t think using a bandaid fix of thicker pads for one set of VRAM and not the other is the way to go.Thicker pads might gain actual contact but then the heat isn’t transferring through and out of the backplate.
