I attached a few pics showing the different revisions of the EK blocks. I am still waiting for a final answer from EK as to why they updated the block. Either it was because everyone was complaining the memory VRM wasn't being cooled or because it should be cooled and it wasn't with the original version. That is what has me concerned. 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.

That was my post back when I first installed the EK block on my Aorus 1080ti extreme. I was concerned then about the memory VRM not being cooled. I haven't thought about it since. 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.

Can ANYONE confirm that all the 1080ti Auros Xtreme PCB board layouts are identical that same??? I want to know if you can use a waterblock for the 1080ti Auros Xtreme air cooling version on the waterblock Auros Xtremes board since you cannot get a replacement from gigabyte.

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.|

|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.|
