    Thanks for the info. I just wish the Matrix would have had a different concept. AIO is great Im sure it offers better thermal performance in an open test bed or a build like a Thermaltake Core P5, it will pull the heat off in a more expeditious fashion but in an enclosed case that heat gets dumped and recycled right back into the inlet. I have heat issue with 20 fans and two 2080Tis in a massive case and have to open the door or it will make my 2 liter capacity loop temps rise because its pulling that hot air through my rads heating it up. Who needs a space heater when these do quite well. I miss the old days when air cooled GPUs had full cover shrouds and dumped the heat out the back somewhat like the turbo does.

    Im not overly optimistic on deliver time of the EK blocks. They keep pushing the release time back. In December it was Mid January. Well now that mid January has come and gone its mid February. Watercool wont respond to any inquires and their website says available January 2019 that has a week left. My beard is getting long and Im afraid by the time a decent card get released Ill be looking like this......sitting at my PC with a single back up 1080, looking at $3000 worth of GPU hardware and listing to Eric Clapton Tears in heaven......

    Following the same old time schedule its t-minus about 8 months until the 3080 cards will be announced.

    I understand. The Taiwan EK rep is usually pretty cool about this stuff, but, yes, there can be some delays to get things into the retail channel. I've got a rebuild planned, too. However, it is likely I will have to embark on that journey after my trip to Taiwan. Driving three 3440 X 1440 panels here, so I need the horsepower.

    I have issues keeping up with one 3440x1440 panel! Its balls fast though!!!

    On a new note I can say enough good things about the customer support reps at Performance PC's. They carry a lot of specialty items in the US that you cant get anywhere else without going outside of the country. I presented them with all that Ive presented here and they were as dumbfounded as I was. They are already on Barrows backside and have arranged for them to have these blocks for breakfast. I spent the better part of the morning explaining and detailing to multiple people in conference with Barrow. In the end I dont have to eat these blocks and Barrow is at least aware of the issue with great detail. Whether or not they decide to fix it is a different story. The blocks may be usable on 2080 (not ti because of the incorrectly modified mosfet portion that only applies to the ti cards) cards with thicker thermal pads but they will not support Nvlink as you cant get the bridge on.
    My hats off to performance PCs!!

    I sent my second 2080Ti back as I wasn't making real use of it with one 3440 panel. Three of them is a truly monstrous pixel count. Scaling in certain DX12 titles on RTX is very impressive, though.

    Keep in mind this is with SMAA X4 which is massively GPU intensive (1440p)

    I'll be running both of mine. Maybe could get by with one but two will have less of a load and in a year I wont be regretting not getting two. Nvidia did shy away from SLI for a bit, not stopping it, just not aggressively supporting it. Thats changed and they are back on it however not past two cards. No titles make use of more than two and only benchmarks have more than two supported. So in essence the days of quad SLI are gone unless someone wants to dump $10K on 4X RTX titans to get top dog on 3D marks.

    Now Im all antsy as Phanteks cards are on the shelves and i have a pair on the way so I can finish this build. Should have known better with the barrow blocks. They have a few things that are OK. Im liking the flowmeter. bought some G 1/4 fittings in the past and they are junk IMO. Once all this is done Ill probably get an itch to add a chiller but thats not going to be an easy bill to fill. Each GPU puts out like 380 watts each add that much more or close to it for an OC'd 9940X and nothing on the market I can find can handle it. 800W is about as high as I have seen. Good thing is in the summer I put a window AC in the window right behind my rig. Duct that puppy up to the back of the case if I have to!! LOL
