ASUS STRIX 3080, 3080Ti, 3090 GPU WATERBLOCK
SHIP TIMES: 4-6 weeks depending on order date. Blocks are currently in production.
The Absolute block is our all-out performance design, created to achieve maximum cooling on all areas of the NVIDIA RTX 3080, 3080 Ti and 3090 Strix GPUs from ASUS. The Strix GPUs pull huge amounts of power and require top cooling on all areas -- die, VRAM, VRM and more -- to achieve the best results.
We've put absolutely every performance and design trick into these blocks to make them perform. Because the GPU cards are large with tall components, the final block is definitely extreme in every sense of the word.
WORLD LEADING DIE DELTA: The Optimus Absolute block achieves a nearly unheard of sub 10c delta or lower on the GPU die. This means the die temp will be only 10c over the water temp (30c die if water is 20c) in most applications, including heavy overclocking and raised bios power limits. In the real world, this means higher overclocks, better stability and excellent reliability.
XL HEATSINK REAR PERFORMANCE: The Optimus XL Heatsink matches or beats even the top active backplates on the market, and absolutely blows past generic cosmetic backplates. The reason is our XL Heatsink isn't a backplate in the traditional sense, but a massive heatsink with full-coverage thermal pad that matches or exceeds the real-world performance of liquid-cooled or heatpipe backplates. In testing, the t-junction will max at 72c during the most intense mining.
- World's best performance in every area: die, VRAM, VRM, rear VRAM
- Optimus XL Heatsink backplate on par with active backplates
- Notched backplate compatible with ITX motherboards and ASUS mobos with dimms close to slot 1
- Symmetrical design with inlet on left side, for the fancy looks
- Includes Kingpin thermal paste and 0.5mm front and 3mm Fujipoly thermal pads.
- New four piece design: separate cold plate, mid plate, top plate and back heatsink bracket.
- Optimus Gen 2 cold plate with large surface area, same design as our CPU blocks, which is vastly larger than traditional GPU fin designs.
- Pro-XE Nickel over raw copper for maximum longevity
- New custom white FDA-Grade EPDM gasket (not o-ring)
- Extremely crack resistant cast acrylic
- Strix GPU Waterblock - All Copper: $249
- Strix GPU Waterblock - All Nickel: +$40
- Strix GPU Backplate - Slim: +$59
- Strix GPU Backplate - XL Heatsink: +$89
COLOR + BACKPLATE AVAILABILITY:
Only the Nickel with XL Heatsink is available to start. The XL Heatsink fits nearly every standard build configuration and the full nickel GPU midplate and cold plate is, by far, the most popular combo. In order to expedite orders, nickel with XL backplates receive priority.
