I understand that and that is why I still went with the EK block. With that said EK revised the block for a reason. I assume that means the memory VRM should be cooled and the newest revision does cool it.

If the memory VRM is running hot I have no way of knowing. I am nervous I could be damaging the card. I don't game often and when I do it isn't for long sessions. I doubt I have done any damage so far but if the memory VRM should be cooled I hope EK will send me the newer revision to replace my original revision.

The card has worked flawlessly and temps have been excellent. Anyway, I was browsing on EK's site today and saw this: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-fc1080-...rus-rgb-nickel

It appears they now have a new waterblock for the Aorus 1080ti that now does cool the memory VRM. Did they make this change because there have been issues with over heating of the memory VRM? I don't game often and when I do it is never longer than an hour or so. I have had no issues but this redesign has me concerned as when I first installed the waterblock.

I emailed EK and I am waiting for a response.

I believe the Aorus 1080ti PCBs are all the same regardless if it is an extreme or regular version.

Does this barrow waterblock fit the xtreme auros 1080ti wb waterblocked version also? Is the auros xtreme 1080ti and the auros xtreme wb 1080ti boards exactly the same?

RavageTheEarth Still happily gaming on my Aorus 1080 Ti running a slight OC of 2050. Nice to see the thread is still alive. I think I'll be skipping the RTX generation.

VolatilXplosion Is the waterblocked auros 1080ti extreme stainless steel plating or nickel? When i had the block open last time a saw a "SS" stamped on it.

VolatilXplosion Thanks for confirming that the 1080ti is faster than the 2080 LOL

doom3crazy I figured this might be the best place to post this but I am thinking about upgrading from my 980 ti to a gigabyte aorus extreme 1080(not ti) and I was just curious if you guys might be able to tell me if there is a custom bios for the card to unlock power/voltage limits etc. There is a guy locally near me selling one for 350$ so I thought it might be a good buy.
