EK has released a new custom water block for the ASUS GTX 1080 Gaming Strix, giving users with this aftermarket GPU design the chance to water cool their product with a product that has been specifically designed to support it. 

This block is made from Nickel plated copper and can come with either a Black Acetal top or an acrylic top, allowing this block to work with the colour schemes of pretty much any water cooled PC.

Sadly this water block will force ASUS GTX 1080 Gaming Strix users to remove the original cooler, taking away the RGB functionality of the GPU. At this time we do not know if this block can be used with the GPUs original RGB illuminated backplate, but EK does offer their own standard EK backplate for this GPU. 

This GPU water block is very similar to EK's existing designs, using EK's innovative split-flow cooling design, which allows this water block to provide great cooling performance while decreasing flow restriction within the block itself. This design allows this water block to be used with even weak low wattage pump designs.

This new waterblock from EK will become available to purchase on EK's own Webshop on June 27th. Below is a table containing the MSRP of the water block itself and its backplate designs.

Hi

I just wish I could buy the card. Or any 1080 right now. I refuse to pay the Ebay/Amazon scalper scum. And all my E-Retailers are out of stock on all models.

Well in Greece you need more than 500€ for a 1070 and more than 800€ for a 1080. Funny thing is that custom pcb cards are even more expensive. So I don't think I'll go Nvidia this time.
