Bitspower Unveils Mobius RTX 3090 FE Water Block, and X-TEND Liquid-Cooled Backplate

Bitspower today unveiled a pair of innovative liquid-cooling products for high-end graphics cards. First up is the premium Mobius water block for the GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition; and next up, is the X-TEND Backplate for ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 series. The Mobius (model number: BPPRE-VG3090FEID) takes advantage of the compact PCB of the RTX 3090 FE to give you a compact 2-slot solution, with the plumbing located at its tail-end, rather than along the top (where NVIDIA's fancy 12-pin power connector is located). The block uses nickel-plated copper as its main material, with a chunky tinted acrylic top that's wrapped around by an alloy scaffolding that attempts to resemble NVIDIA's original product design. The top is studded with addressable-RGB LEDs.

The X-TEND Backplate for ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 is an interesting product. It's a backplate that features a small water block that pulls heat from the GDDR6X memory chips located at the reverse side of the PCB, as well as heat from right behind the GPU. A distributor is included, so you can share coolant with your main water block that's on the obverse side of the PCB. Barring the centrally-located water block, the X-TEND is made mainly of acrylic, with a PE-film cover, and is studded with addressable RGB LEDs. The Mobius for RTX 3090 FE is priced at USD $425, while the X-TEND liquid-cooled backplate for the ROG Strix RTX 3090, is priced at $198.

Yup leave it to bp to come up with not one but two nauseatingly overpriced blocks for the same card.

That poor RTX 3 imitation ended up looking like a bow tie. A rectangular shape would have looked so much better.

Wow how is your GPU and Vram junction temperature with the active backplate?
It's in the mail. Should have it next week or so.
I'll be selling my EK block once this arrives. EK is dragging their feet on the active back plates.

I've got Bykski's Strix active backplate block coming in the next couple weeks as well, so I could add numbers as well if there's any interest.

mines in and installed, we can do some stock vs stock comparisons when yours is in

I run at 1600/10,000 as my mining clocks, since it also handles games just peachy - temps are laughably low compared to the stock cooler
