So I am looking to get a RTX 4xxx Card with a Preinstalled Water Block.
For BOINC GPU Projects and for Folding.
What would all recommend?
Thanks

    I endorse the Nvidia 4090FE. Most reviews aren't finding a ton of extra performance out of the 3rd party cards.

    If it has to come with a block I would go with MSI, Asus or Gigabyte.

    Give it time they will be and prices should be stable.
    I have had a Zotac card before with no issue too.
    I would think blocks will be available for the founders cards soon
    But from what I hear they run cool the voltage is locked and can’t be increased so water cooling is not Necessary. They are sent out near maxed out as is. So I hear
    Myself I will wait for the prices to drop when inventory is plentiful and holiday sales.

    Holiday sales are not really a thing for GPU. Mostly game bundles are what is seen when they need to increase interest in a card and that is often the latest call of duty game

    They just posted test results
    4090 testing done! Interestingly, waaay more power goes directly to the die. 4090 (strix) vs 3090 (kp) (furmark): 515 watts vs 203w on the die with 560w vs 465w on the board. With our block, die-to-liquid delta is 19c at 515w vs 9c at 203w on die. Which is insane :D

    I waited 5 months for the 3080 KingPin Water Block and ended up canceling it. I did get a full refund.
    I will just have to wait and see what come up in the next 6-8 months or sooner I hope.

    Nice addition! Should be a boost in the last PG challenge coming up in a couple of weeks.

    Going to replace my 2 1080 KPE cards in my X299 Rig.
    More performance and less cost to run the rig.

    You can call UPS and see if it can be held for pickup at a UPS store. It just takes going when they are open and showing an identification.

    It will be here on Monday.
    I just got an email from UPS saying it would be here on Monday so I went out and after 30 minutes they where at my Door on Saturday.
    We have the Best UPS I have ever had here in Colorado.
    But now my EK Waterblock will not be here until January

    Bit late for seeing this, but for anyone else looking for waterblocked 4090s don't buy the Gigabyte 4090 Waterforce. The waterblock dimensions are incorrect so it overextends on one end and doesn't fully cover the fets/chokes on the other end, as if they forgot to flip the block around in AutoCAD. The overall design is really cheaply done as well, with screws located directly over the VRAM thermal pads too so that leaves air gaps over random memory chips.


    Have water, will cool.

    Well this really sucks, my second EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 ULTRA HYDRO COPPER is now leaking like the first one did.
    Off the RMA Land or EVGA that is.

    Ware is it leaking ? The fittings or block seal?

    Block Seal on the inside lower center to lower right, same as my other card of the same model.
    In all I had to replace all of my 2080 EGVA Waterblocks as they all leaked in the same location.
    I at least have a spar for my 2080 KPE Card but Not for my 3090 KPE Card.

    Looks like the auction was pulled. Maybe it had an engineering sample chip in it and can't legally be sold?
