I had to install mine with the logo upside down but since my MB was already upside down the logo ended right side up.

Yeah, the more I look at my rig and the block, I don't see a pleasing way to do it sideways and I'm not sure how my system will run if I just swap my main in and outs on the pump (can gpu blocks flow backwards without affecting performance?), so I think safe bet will be just to deal with an upside down logo until I do a reconfig. I'll see how ambitious I get on Saturday. More excited to see what improvements I get while rendering or caching sims, if any. Been having the tinker bug lately, this was a cheaper solution to swapping gpu blocks.

Anyone else waiting on their 2080Ti block? I preordered mine in December and waiting patiently.
Also ordered mine mid-december.. Just hoping we get them before the 30xx ti drops.

Yeah that was my dilemma, Seeing how I cant take an upside down logo I re piped my loop and will probably re pipe it once more. Changing top rad from 480 EK PE to HW Labs 420 SR2 and also changing top fans to the Noctua industrial model 140mm 2000 RPM PWM fans. Was gonna put an alpha cool 480 cross flow up there but it takes up every mm of space leaving zero room to pipe it up. Think Im also gonna redo the flow. Instead of going into distro then to block Im going straight out of the pump into the block then use distro for VRM cooler and GPUs. May even just can the Distro. Ill see when new Rad gets here. Im still wondering if there is a springless mount that is better on the signature than simply leaving springs out.

you know you can unscrew the block apart and rotate the top right?

Or you have the loop from gpus to cpu ? I have them like that xD

waiting -

they pushed it back another month, due to churning out a new backplate that'll be included with pre-orders. hoping to hear an update next week.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Anything flowing in a direction other than designed will take a performance hit. Its dependent on whether you do this for show or performance. For me every degree counts. CPU, Never go backwards.....at least on any block worth having. The jet plate and channels have a specific flow rate.

As for GPUs, EKWB, if you are one still running blocks for an EK badge (Ive dumped them and moved on), Says you can run their GPU blocks reverse flow with minimal temp difference. I asked this of them on a social media group and had to prod to get an answer as to exactly what is minimal. Best answer I got was 3-5C drop in performance. Well in my book thats not minimal. 2C is not minimal.

While its nice to have easier loops to run and make them pretty my primary goal is the best performance. 3C higher temps on my GPUS drops my OC potential. 5C destroys the potential. Im floating right below the window where thermal throttling begins. HK blocks running in correct direction keeps me under 45C heavily loaded on both GPUs. Reverse the flow, had to try it for giggles, and on the HK blocks and that 42-44C top end goes to 48-50.
