Alphacool Announces Eisblock ES Acetal for RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Reference

Alphacool presents the Eisblock ES Acetal GPX-N RTX 3080/3090 GPU watercooling block The block is specially developed for the server sector. Nevertheless, it also fits into normal desktop computers or small form factor cases. Of course, it is also available to our end customers. A special feature of this block is the terminal with the G1/4" ports is located at the rear end of the cooler. This arrangement saves space and makes it much easier to lay and connect the tubing, especially in server cases.

Alphacool naturally only uses copper in its water coolers. In the Eisblock ES Acetal GPX-N RTX 3080/3090 the copper is nickel-plated. Compared to the previous models, Alphacool has improved the type of nickel plating again, which significantly increased the acid resistance.

They should have used flat, sockethead cap screws that are black (not black oxide coated as these aren't intended for exposure to water, however their are recently created ways to infuse color into stainless steel akin to anodizing aluminum) , aesthetically it isn't pleasing to see all of the heads of the stainless steel screws (I'm hoping they're SS as zinc plated screws would be cheaping out) scattershot around the top of the block.

FYI. The type of screws I am referring to [see picture below] are correctly called "flat, socket head cap screws" according to international standards bodies like the ISO. Many people, including numerous tech youtubers sadly, will incorrectly refer to them as "countersunk screws" or "hex" screws, but these are incorrect (the cutting tool used to make the necessary female recess for them is called a "countersink", so perhaps this is the source of the confusion) . I feel this necessary to mention so that if anyone is looking for them one day, they know the correct terminology for which to search, otherwise they might not find what they're looking for.

FYI#2 They are available with two different head angles, 90° and 82°, so make sure you're acquiring the correct one to match its respective recess or countersink

That side with all the screws, is the backplate? So you have to install vertically to avoid showing off that monstrosity? They really need to have a blacked out version like the post above me suggests...

They have been inspired by EK for sure, but hey they dont have a patent on black aluminium with bolts in it! :D I actually dig the 'complete block' style without the acrylic (EK) on top. A shame that SLI is dead: It would look dope as F with 4 of these lined up!

The backplate is uggo, but the block itself looks nice. Install vertically at all costs.

Ok I see, then it looks better installed normally. All I know is that I couldn't live seeing those screws everyday...

I honestly like all the screws showing. I love the industrial look. And I miss EKs old block designs (5+ years ago).
