EVGA GTX1080 FTW SC Waterblock release? - Page 5

post #41 of 61
Hi Guys,

As a long term fan and support of both EKWB and EVGA, I think its fair to say the enthusiasts community is waiting with anticipation for the release of the EK EVGA GTX 1080 FTW GPU Blocks.

I think its also fair to say that, its now 1 day before the end of August and we are all very disappointed that the waterblocks still have not been released!?

https://www.ekwb.com/news/official-list-of-ek-water-blocks-for-gtx-1080-series/

We your customers and fans are the ones that lose out the most when EKWB and EVGA have commercial disputes. Whatever may have occurred in the past, it does not send a good message to your customers when either vendor chooses to put the other vendor at a disadvantage.

Could someone at EKWB please confirm on what day/date the waterblocks will be released? Some of your customers have waited an extremely long time and have had to delay builds because of this unfortunate situation.

It should be released in about 2 weeks

Looking at the other forums it looks like there will be no classified ek waterblock in our future. Akira might be able to verify but here's the link

Really annoyed and looks like I'm swapping for a Titan XP at this point.

We will be able to use the existing backplate that comes with the FTW?

Ya it was $112 when I looked this morning, $139 now, but that's ok, better than not having one. All of the other blocks are around the same price, it could have been an error on their side for the cheaper price.
