Is the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming 1080 going to get a block as well? It's not listed in the cooling configurator currently.

Or that might not be the "xtreme"?

The water block design is set in stone and will not change. However, we will make our own, nicer looking SLI HB adapter. How about that?biggrin.gif

@EKWB_dudes, I don't know how far along you are in the design of your SLI HB Bridge adapter, but please may I offer a suggestion?

If the design of your SLI HB Bridge adapter has any text, logos or anything else that has a visual "correct way up", please can you design it so that said element is user reverseable? That way, your SLI bridge won't be upside down in those rigs that have motherboards in reverse configuration.

I don't know if you can pass that along to your design team.

+1 on that, it's my constant complain about any and all SLI bridges, they are never reversible for those that run reverse layout builds (which is becoming more common).

Hello, I just received my founders MSI 1080 and I am expecting my acetal EKWB on friday. My question is, I noticed the 1080 has some stock backplating fitted. Will I be able to use the stock backplate with EK waterblock ?

@prase007, short answer, I believe, is no.

For the long answer see the product page here > https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-fc1080-gtx-acetal-nickel and scroll down to the big yellow box.

That specified the Nvidia backplate (the 2 part one). I wonder if the EVGA backplate might work (from the ACX 3.0 cards).
