Awww that sucks! It's a popular card so I'm sure it would sell, I kinda hate that it's the only thing in my current set up that the rgb doesn't link into icue with! Which would be another reason to drop a few hundred on hydro x if you did support the gaming x trio series :( I'm guessing there are no plans for a semi modular approach that will work with multiple card types etc in the future? Would rather not have to go EK and have another rgb system that needs a separate interface! Was so excited when icue launched as it brought everything into one place :(

Word of advice - when planning for water cooling always go for reference cards (i.e. Founders Edition) or anything build on top of the existing reference PCBA. These cards are smaller and generally have less fitment issues compared to AIB models.

Big AIB cards from MSI, EVGA, GIGABYTE or even ASUS are usually substantially less supported by most vendors, including CORSAIR. The reason why AIB cards are large is the fact they utilize large PCBA as a cooling surface and to be able to install large fans. With water cooling you don't need any of that.

My concern is I went ahead and purchase a Corsair Hydro X Series XG7 RGB 20-SERIES GPU Water Block (2080 FE) SKU CX-9020002-WW and it does fix, the problem is there are several MOSFET, VRMs, ect are not protected by the heat sink. Should I continue and put the water block? I've purchase a NVIDIA Geforce 2070 Super.

No need to be concerned. You can go ahead and install the GPU water block.
It is a total conversion solution and cools down all key components (GPU die, memory ICs and related voltage regulator modules) which require cooling.
