ehabash1sparetimepcOptimus has had the block for the 2080 ti in pre-order status for a year now.well the FTW3 cards are available now on their site
Dabadger84I'm just gonna go the safe route & either Hybrid cooler my card after eVGA puts them out, or just straight up sell my current 3080 FTW3 Ultra & order a Hybrid version once the queue is launched for them. Not that I wouldn't love to have a full coverage block card, but the process of installing it makes me nervous. Even though I've put countless computers together (and sometimes taken them apart & put them back together several times) myself, I'm still not comfortable specifically with GPU stuff. I've only repasted GPUs a few times, and it was on blower-style cooler R9 290Xs, which had paste issues (I could tell by the temperature variance they were seeing in comparison to the other cards I had in a QuadFire setup), and that was quite a while ago now.Maybe onea these days I'll take apart one of my old GPUs that I no longer use & put it back together with new paste, and see if it still works, get some experience on GPUs that ARE NOT $800+ lol
cerealkellerHas anyone who has ordered there's from the first batch got theirs yet? This company is infamous for missing ship dates by months, if they don't ship them before EK comes up with one, I'll cancel and get an EK.
telehogOrder on 1st batch sent email mid -month said it was looking like the end of the month. Will see if they ship Monday. On Ek notify list. Good chance I will cancel as well and just wait on the EKWB block.
chumeniukI ordered both an AM4 water block and the 3080/3090 one. After about 3 weeks of the AM4 one not shipping after showing in stock when ordered, I cancelled. They may make nice looking stuff, but are horrible at communicating delays (which they continually have).

They may make nice looking stuff, but are horrible at communicating delays (which they continually have).The Optimus AM4 block took about 3 months to arrive after I ordered it. It showed as in stock when I ordered it. Optimus has continually not met stated delivery times on many products. I'm not sure if their 2080 ti blocks ever shipped. Some people waiting for 2080 ti blocks had their orders switched to 3090 FTW3 blocks.
Dsullivan539Just heard from them about my order. Batch 2 will not be shipping before Xmas. Means if you are in Batch 2 get ready to wait until some point in January 2021. What a disaster, really disappointing. Should've taken my business elsewhere.
