Alphacool’s catalog has recently been updated with new generation waterblocks for Geforce RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards from Asus and MSI. They are slightly different from reference samples.
All of them are categorized as full-coverage waterblocks, i.e. they remove heat from GPUs, memory chips and power subsystem components. To ensure the best heat transfer, Alphacool includes special 1mm thick Ultra Soft thermal pads, which, according to the manufacturer, are particularly well adjacent to the components. After heating, they behave like thermal paste, so the heat transfer is much more efficient than with conventional thermal pads.
All Eisblock Aurora waterblocks for RTX 3080 and 3090 models are decorated with addressable RGB backlight and come with a back panel. The Eisblock Aurora GPX-N RTX 3090/3080 Gaming X Trio waterblock, shown on photo above, is compatible with MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio and MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio graphics cards.
The Alphacool Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX-N RTX 3090/3080 TUF is compatible with Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 OC, Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080, Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 and Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 OC.
The Alphacool Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX-N RTX 3090/3080 ROG Strix is suitable for Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080, Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080 and Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 OC cards.
Any of the listed waterblocks costs 137 euros.
