Hey so, I've seen that EVGA updated their product page for the RTX 3000 series with the cooler design being with black lips instead of red ones..
 
Those who ordered the cards recently, like I did.. last Saturday, will get the black lips? (Ordered from Newegg btw)
 
or still retain those red lips?
 
Maybe you guys know?

Haven't heard of the "black lips" getting into anyone's hands yet, don't know how many red ones have to go out first, but I do wonder.

My 3090 ordered on 10/23 from New Egg has red trim. So unlikely.

If my card arrives tomorrow with red lips, I'm going to consider it a badge of honor as a "founders edition."
 
That'll make them seem less obnoxious... Right...?

The red accents aren't my thing.. and I wasn't a fan of them when my 3090 arrived. But I forgot about them as soon as I installed my card. For me, my case is a sleeper build rig that sits behind and to the right of me, so the only thing I see is my giant temp bar ARGB, which is all I wanted tbh.

Would also like to know if I masked it off/ or removed the cooler from the board and painted this a different cooler or painted any part of the fan shroud would that void the warranty?

Warranty is "has to look like stock" so take that how you will.  If you use something like Plastidip that you can remove before you send it in, you might be in luck.

So supposedly we will be able to obtain different designs somehow after we got the cards?
 
Since it's alittle tricky taking the shroud off..

Could you share if there will be options for EU-buyers to get them as well?
I ordered mine today on Amazon DE.

GN did a tear town of the EVGA cards and tried to remove the the red trim, unfortunately it is more than just a snap on piece. It will likely require a whole new fan shroud to change the color.

Any update on this? Someone posted on Reddit that they just received a 3080 FTW3 with black lips instead of red. For those that get one with red lips, will there be a fix?

This is what I always refer to it as: The Taylor Swift Lipstick GPU. Noooooooo! lol Seriously though, are there some 3D printed covering that would just sit on top/over the red parts or something? I doubt they're sending out new shrouds, and I'd rather not send in my GPU for a few weeks just for the accent color.

Kind of funny! If they originally came black, we might be asking, why not a color, like red! I might prefer the red, or blue, or green........

LOL - my 3090 FTW3 Ultra received Monday has the red lips, not crazy about it but certainly not a deal breaker for me.
Card running great for me so far.

I don't even see it in my case. I can't be bothered to worry about aesthetics in a graphics card. I bought it to run games/apps...not for a "it looks cool in my case" factor.

I was "meh" with regards to the red lips, but after seeing this, I want the red lips.

It is by the juice of PSU that graphics acquire speed, the card acquires lips, the lips become a meme. It is by reboot alone I set my PC in motion.
