XG7 compatibility ?

Hi, I'm getting a full Hydro X setup through the doors in a few days, but now I notice that the XG7 2080 has a Rev. B version.

 

I have the MSI 2080 Super Ventus OC (NON-XS), and as far as I remember XG7 2080 (FE) was compatible, but now I need the Rev. B?

 

Do I really need to change to the Rev. B or can I use the first version?

Super Ventus apparently has DP connector instead of USB type C (see below) on the bottom I/O corner, hence the DP connector will collide with the aluminum cover thus preventing installation.

 

You need Rev.B for your Super Ventus OC, i.e. the CX-9020009 block: https://www.corsair.com/p/CX-9020009-WW

 

P.S.: Always check http://www.customcoolingconfigurator.com (y)

I just returned my 2080 Super Ventus OC (2 days left thanks to holiday return window) and purchased the FE that's back in stock at Best Buy. When I was trying to fit the Rev B block to the card it didn't look close to lining up properly, also the PCB was way taller than the block. The whole thing didn't look right at all. Luckily I was still within the return window and I wanted the FE more anyways.

Strange, since my Rev B fit perfectly with my 2080 Super Ventus OC

Yeah, Rev B fits perfectly with 2080 Super Ventus OC.

 

What you probably actually had was a Super Ventus XS OC, which has taller PCBA:

Could be, I purchased it in-store. The box didn't show any XS branding on it, but the link you provided also doesn't show it either. Regardless, I returned it for the FE which I wanted in the first place. Now I just need the time to finish the build. Also contemplating white plastidip for the GPU cooler to match my build.
