3090 FE Water Block?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a 3090 FE at MSRP. I had been planning hydro x loop with the 3080, but after getting lucky with the 3090 founder's edition, I've now found the water block options on the market are slim to none.

 

Corsair claims their 3090 FE block is out of stock. However, I haven't seen anyone install one in a system, period. Were these ever released and has anyone heard news about availability?

 

I would prefer to avoid Alphacool, Bitspower, or EK if possible, but options look limited. Thanks.

Thanks, the reference edition block is widely available. I'm talking about the block specifically for the Founder's Edition, which is essentially non-existent.

 

The two are not interchangeable, unfortunately.

Same thing for me, literally have my build in a corner collecting dust waiting for the past 3 weeks for the 3090 FE block (Already ordered and paid for). Would be nice to finally build this.

 

lmao glad to know I'm not the only one. I'm thinking of putting it together this weekend and just leaving the 3090 air-cooled until a block presents itself.

 

EK has an ETA of April for their blocks. Alphacool is supposed to be out soon but who knows. Corsair is in the wind. Bitspower has to ship from Taiwan and comes out to about $265 for one that aesthetically isn't my favorite.

 

Byksky on ebay is the only option and I have never heard of them until I found that. Don't trust it one bit.

I have installed the 3090fe water block vertically in my o11d xl. I posted in another corsair thread along with a photo of the finished build. Working well - very pleased with it. I also put an mp5works backplate cooler on. Ordered from Corsair webstore over Xmas and it was sent from Corsair Taiwan to UK, took about 8 days.

That's great. I've got an Alphacool block coming but keeping my fingers crossed for a corsair block becoming available in time to cancel. I've got the loop set up with a temporary soft tube that'll go once the GPU block is in. At this point, I'm just going to get it up and running with the 3090 air-cooled temporarily.
