Contrary to initial statements about EVGA water blocks, all disputes have been resolved and we are officially announcing the following lineup of GeForce® GTX 1080 water blocks:

This is very good news.

I'm so glad I went with the FTW and not the Superclocked now.

They don't exists, no support from Nvidia drivers for 3+ SLI you have to rely on application developers using low level APIs to implement support for 3+ GPUs.
On the other hand I'm open to receiving donations of unused 1080s from 3+ SLI.

I went with the FTW from the off, dual BIOS, 10+2 phases and 2x 8pin for not a lot more just made sense to me:)

I would have gone with the Gigabyte G1 originally but it looks very ugly imo. The EVGA ones are really the closest to my tastes visually

Sigh...the exact opposite for me, ordered SC just for the block support...would rather have the FTW but then again I have SC and block in hand today so theres that.

I have never flashed a bios so the FTW cards will be the first ones I do it too.
I expect that one of the two slots contains the original bios, and the secondary slot is open for us to put w/e we want there?

I also assume that putting a custom bios in the secondary slot does not harm the warranty in any way? At least if I use a bios that only unlocks the power target and does not go over the limit of 1.25v?

I wouldn't be too worried, looking at the overclocking performance of some of the custom boards, it looks like they clock no better than the FE versions anyway. Worse in some cases. It seems that a well binned chip will be more important for now, until the 16nm process matures a bit........smile.gif

I hope you're able to see where others are coming from, now.

1080P.. what's that? oh... my old TV set. I get it. tongue.gif

anyway, let's move on...
