I see it listed as releasing in December on the EVGA US site, but none of the water cooling options appear on the Australian site. Will they be releasing in AU? Will they be releasing at a later date?

    But is it coming out at all in Aus, or am I buying it in the US and having a friend ship it to me.

    ^^Agreed
     
    Aussie here - I bought a 3090 FTW3 Ultra and expect to put an EK block on it when one gets released.

    Gotta be honest. As easy as it looks, I don't have the guts to pull apart a $1400 card and install the cooler. I'd rather have a US friend ship it to me, if I can't get it locally.

    Spoke to Support and got the following response:
    --------
    Dear Customer, 

    Thank you for reaching out EVGA support team.
    The estimated releasing time of this model is in the middle of January 2021 at the earliest time. 
    This is eligible for warranty under the "3-year Global Warranty" if you purchase in U.S. and use it in Australia. Please note customers in Australia are supported by Taiwan service center for the RMA and are not eligible to any other promotions since the purchasing place is not local retailer. And this will not covered by local retailer warranty service.
    -------

    I'm assuming that last line simply means I can't take it to a local retailer for warranty (which is obvious) but I'm still free to ship it away to Taiwan for any RMA service.
