xxDarkxxthey are slooooow though so keep that in mindFor my ftw3 i bought the optimus block day 1 (you have to prepay so keep that in mind)I received it the day before NYE so over 2 months wait They have to finish a design first and then take orders and then you have to wait. You might be able to get your hands on this in May
vulcan1978I have two issues with the Optimus block, one, EKWB is releasing an actual active back-plate which is extremely beneficial to the 3090 and two, yeah this is going to sound silly but man, there is no RGB whatsoever on the Optimus block. Also, cost and availability. It looks like a great design, add in an active back-plate like ekwb is releasing and RGB and I'm sold.
xMAXxIMUSxHas anyone cut or removed the hoses up to bezel on card, to add to custom waterloop, or found a way to use stock pump an cooling solution in a custom gpu loop?
xxDarkxxYou may not get an active cooling backplate but you get one of the largest backplates ever made. Its seriously a ton of copper it will be the heaviest waterblock you ever holdThe fujipoly pad is massive it litterally covers the entire backside and its pretty thick. They didnt need to do that! Honestly they must have done some testing and found it to be a better solution. If i wanted to buy a similar thermal pad it would cost me $100 !The backside is also finned. I would like to see a comparison of backside temps between one with active cooling vs the optimus. I bet you will be surprised at the results
