    nope since its a custom pcb theres 99% chance its not. Founder/refrence cards are the easiest to find blocks for. It doesn't mean there wont be any but don't expect them to come out as fast

    I doubt very much that we will see non-reference WB for 1080Ti. Slim (as hole in the carbon nano-tube) chance at best. Simply put supply and demand. 1080Ti is in short supply as it is and FE (reference) will easily outsell every other versions combined. It was always the case for top-tier VGAs. And to compound this most Pascal blocks are already compatible with Ti (except Bitspower and Phanteks) which offer absolutely no incentive to manufacturers to spend more on R&D.
     
    You can however always use Alphacool service where they can design block for you. Granted not the prettiest things in the world, but still it's probably the only way for custom PCB 1080Tis waterblocks. Not counting out ready made cards with blocks like MSI, Gigabyte or Zotac did with 1080.

    if that were true, companies would never release custom pcb waterblocks for smaller brands like evga and zotac with custom PCB's... oh wait, they have.

    It may take longer this time around though as like he said so many XP blocks allready work for the ti Fe . But I bet they will come out eventually

    I just don't want to wait till who knows when a waterblock will be ready on the FTW3. I see the one temp sensor plug on the 1080Ti FTW3 on the lower left of the PCB,  there are no waterblocks for ANY of the GTX 1080 ICX +9 sensors version from any block vendors. I would like the dual bio and 10-2 phases though.

    If you want to nit pick fine with me. Who am I to stop you. I know for a fact from companies like Aquacomputer/Watercool why they never bother with custom-PCBs for top tier VGAs (in fact Watercool broke with norm because they have block for 1070/80FTW, but for Ti its Titan block...). 90% watercoolers don't bother with non reference PCBs. Period. If you want to deny it - that's your right but without much foundation in facts and market analysis.
     
    Don't hold your breath for many non-reference 1080Ti blocks or you'll suffocate.

    hi do you plan to make WB for EVGA GeForce GTX [link=tel:1080]1080[/link] Ti FTW3 GAMING?

     


     
     





    EK Igor joined the chat






    EK Igor

    hello Yordan

     


     
     





    sadly at the moment we don't have all the plans about which GPUs will be supported with our water blocks, so I can't tell you anything about it at the moment

     


     
     


    Yordan Getev

    thx

    That's an odd assertion you are making about facts considering EK has made a full cover block the all evga custom variants including classy and kingpin, For the 780ti, 980, 980ti, and 1080 minus the brand new ftw2. That's just how far back I stopped looking.

    Will we have day 1 support... No. But, I have no doubt that blocks will become available for all custom enthusiast models.

    There are plenty of waterblocks for non-reference pcb's, why would the 1080ti be any different?

    And as if EK was listening late May. https://www.ekwb.com/news...ce-gtx-1080-ti-series/

    So tell us again about how blocks will only be for reference pcb.

    This is from JayzTwoCents at Computex 2017, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WgDjUGUeR4&t=243s at 0:36 he talks about EVGA's Hydro Copper waterblock for the FTW3.  
    That waterblock does look different from the two offered at EVGA's waterblock product page. https://www.evga.com/products/productlist.aspx?type=18&family=Accessories+-+Hardware&chipset=GPU+Waterblock 
    So it might really be the first look I had seen of the FTW3 Hydro Copper waterblock.
     
    Curious to see if the review for the Ti FTW3 Hydro Copper waterblock will reflect TechPowerUp's review on the EVGA's 1080 Hydro Copper waterblock. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/EVGA/Hydro_Copper_GTX_1080/ 
     
    The video on JayzTwoCents doesn't show the card up close to see any RGB implementations from the FTW3 setup.  The hunt for Ti FTW3 waterblock begins now, hopefully the hunt will end soon.
     
    Members please list some of the waterblocks that will possibly come out for the Ti FTW3.  So EVGA has there Hydro Copper coming soon, and EK says their's will be ready soon.  
    What about Phanteks, Swiftech, Koolance, Alphacool, Watercool, Bykski, Aquacomputer, XSPC, and lastly Bitspower?  When and who else will make a waterblock for EVGA's 1080 Ti FTW3?

    I have 2 evga 1080 ti ftw3's and have all the ekwb parts to build a custom loop for both of them and the cpu. All I am waiting for is the release of there blocks. should be within the next 2 weeks.. hopefully :

    They already presented the 1080TI Hydro Copper in Computex.





     
    Source: https://www.cowcotland.com/news/58034/computex-2017-gtx-1080-ti-hydro-copper-evga-gpu-gaming-nvidia.html

     
    But, I read somewhere in the forum here, that EVGA is not giving any ETA before they arrive from Computex.

    Case: C.M. HAF X (No Drive Bays mod)
    MB: Asus Rampage IV GENE
    CPU: Intel I7 3820 (No O.C)
    Mem.: 1600Mhz 16GB (4X4) Corsair DDR3 VENGEANCE PRO (RED)
    GPU: GTX 1080TI FTW3
    A.I.O. W.C: Corsair H100I V1

    I guess EVGA will be releasing a waterblock for their 1080 Ti, K|NGP|N.

    Kyle from Bitwit (Youtube) mentioned this from Computex.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mU09VpVqwA He says it was designed for that, a true single slot card that can be watercooled for compact configurations.
    EVGA has a new waterblock manufacturer, I think.

    I thought he may have said Hydrocopper meaning waterblock.

    I thought the Copper Plated Aluminum statement was wrong, but Jacob just verified that it is indeed copper plated aluminum, so they could be releasing a hydrocopper as well. Vince did say "wait until you see the coolers that are available."

    EK has bumped their ETA on a block for the FTW3 again. Here's a response I got to a query about it from them:
     

     
     
     
    I've already made the decision to stick my two 1080 EK Xs back in my build and wait on Volta to be released. I'll use the FTW3 I have in my test bench setup on air.

    Pretty, albeit late to market. Some of us don't need it anymore.

    There's another full cover block available for the FTW3?

    My computer finds cures for diseases and searches for aliens when I'm not gaming...what does yours do?
     
    Ryzen 1700, ASRock Fatal1ty X370 Professional, EVGA GTX1080Ti FTW3, 16GB Corsair LPX, Noctua D14, EVGA SuperNOVA 650 P2, Overlord Tempest X270X Glossy, LG 34UM94 Ultrawide
