Alphacool Announces Waterblocks For MSI & ASUS RTX3080/RTX3090

Today, Alphacool presents several new coolers that are ready to pre-order for GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 cards. Delivery will begin at the end of October. These include coolers for the ASUS STRIX and TUF series and coolers for the MSI Gaming X Trio series. The new coolers cover all important components like voltage converter, graphics memory and of course the GPU. Also any other important areas that tend to get hot are also cooled via liquid. To ensure the best possible heat transfer, Alphacool uses special 1 mm thick Ultra Soft thermal pads for all surrounding components, which snuggle particularly well to the components. The incredibly soft consistency of the Ultra Soft thermal pads behaves similar to a thermal paste after heating. Due to this perfect coating, the heat transfer is much better than with standard thermal pads.

All Eisblock Aurora coolers for the RTX 3080 and 3090 models are delivered with backplate. It is not necessary to purchase them separately. Like all Eisblock Aurora coolers, these models offer a comprehensive Digital RGB, sometimes better known as aRGB, illumination.

I wish they came with nickel plated copper backplates. It's great to get something bundled but if someone can afford a 3090 and custom loop they will spend the extra to get a backplate that matches the block.

lol I'm the opposite I'd rather have full copper and no nickel plating.
Pure copper and distilled water for me please.

The visually attractive coolant duct game is a very thick plexi element which in turn increases the chances of leaks and will make it harder to moudeng in smaller layouts. No matter, nice.

Every high end GPU is better with a full block on it.
