Alphacool presents the Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX-N cooler for reference design NVIDIA RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards. The cooler offers outstanding cooling performance thanks to its full cover design. The new backplate, which is delivered together with the cooler, also contributes to this. This stabilizes the graphics card and ensures an even contact along the whole cooler. The water block cold plate is made of nickel-plated copper. The cooler covers all relevant components such as voltage converters and the graphics memory.

The Alphacool Eisblock GPX-N Aurora Plexi has an LED strip across the entire width with addressable 5 V digital RGB LEDs. These illuminate the entire cooler homogeneously and ensures an outstanding ambiance in the PC housing.

These alphacool blocks have some interesting channels (water ways) that's for sure.

Out of all the waterblock makers, Bykski definitely makes blocks for the most models, you can seriously find blocks on aliexpress for even 1660 custom models. I got a block from them for my Sapphire 5700xt Nitro+ for only $80 on aliexpress, from their largest reseller on their with literally thousands of positive reviews (so you know they're trustworthy).

In my opinion, while Watercool's Heatkiller IV product line is the pinnacle of quality and performance (now defunct sites like thermal bench confirmed this), I feel as though Bykski is equivalent to EK and a far better value.

Because they are mostly more expensive than to change the block... and they always comes later on the market. But be sure.... you will also see some with our cooler ;-)

but they always have better chip/die, and they always pre-OC from factory and nice block, not some crap like this... :/

and no they are not more expensive, if you look how much cost with air cooler and plus your new water block, you loss money. if you going water block from factory they nearly same price as air cooler

Wth? I've never seen an AIB card with a pre-installed waterblock that wasn't $200-300 more than the equivalent normal card.

So what's that, like 14 O-rings in there?

Agreed too much, can make it weak and complicated.

Those are channels where water can go through but hey if you have to dismount it for a clean make sure you screw down everything with the same force or you gonna have some leak...
