Got email from Optimus: 

That's awesome! 22c lower than the AIO is pretty legit :) Once we get through the FTW orders, we'll tackle the Kingpin. So looking like Feb.
JOSH RAYOptimus Advanced Water Cooling
optimuspc.com     You may be able to order one then, but  I would guess May before you can get one.

    they are slooooow though so keep that in mind
    For 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

    It looks like Evga HC is still 2 months away. Evga looks to be making a high performer before it's offered for sale.

    Thanks for the info! Will it be clear when day 1 is or is that something we should track? I'm hungry to get my KPE properly in my loop.

    I 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.

    I can't seem to find any official word on a 3090 KP block from EKWB. Where are you hearing this? I see it for FTW3 series but not specifically KPE.

    EKWB last word was they have no plans right now for Kinpin block,but block on the back would help any 3090.

    For EKWB to make a waterblock they will REQUIRE a GPU, and not many people are willing to send their Kingpin to Slovenia for a month.

    I went back and forth with them a little bit on the design.  They felt that since they already have the FTW3 down, the Kingpin will be similar.  I guess Strix is harder to design for.  So their design window may be shorter based on what they learned from the FTW3.

    If there's enough demand for active backplate maybe Optimus may design one?

    Has 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?

    Don't think it's worth the hassle, especially when we know there will be blocks for these cards.  Also hard modding the cooling solution is a good way to void the warranty.  Better to wait for a solution that won't.

    You 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 hold
    The 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

    Yeah no ETA on one of these puppies for the KPE according to their support, wouldn't even take a deposit. Probably april-may like HC probably.
