    I use nowinstock.net but that only shows retailers after the fact. My best bet is most likely direct from EK or watercool as soon as they go up for sale.

    I have had very good experience ordering directly from EK, 3 day delivery to Southern California, I have never dealt with any defects or RMA with them though.

    Yeah I get the orders pretty quick direct order, even with watercool. Frustration ATM minute is cant order something that isnt there. Watercool updated their page today from "Available January 2019" to "Available February 2019" No preorders even not product images.

    Yeah, I've gotten several replies from them saying 'February' to 'mid-Feb' to 'coming soon' - no exact date. I tried getting them to reply with the earliest or latest release date but no avail.

    Thanks for the heads up @Raja.
    Do you have any experience with the thermal performance on the Phanteks blocks? The block iself appears to have an actual full cover that gets all the VRMS and chokes as well where some have been skipping the maint Vcore and memory chokes. The would match my enthoo elite! Just wish they made an Nvlink in a two slot variety so I could go vertical, Trying to envision how these blocks will look with original backplates.

    Now to see if anyone is selling them.

    Just did a quick google search on this actually. This youtube channel came up. Although these are reference card results. But that could be a good indicator of performance of the Strix block. Not sure of the testing methodology used here (I believe he uses a chiller).

    Phanteks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qi2ck8dC0QA
    EKWB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUrkhkWWaRA
    Heatkiller: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfvYMki4UyM
    Aquacomputer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNSPQvjSEBE

    Not sure why the EKWB block is considerably hotter than the rest. Do the results look legit?

    Yeah I’m gonna have to call BS on Egor especially on the ultra high temps on the EK and the ultra low idle. To many variables not noted and while Watercool and aquacomputer make awesome blocks a 20 spread on the EK? Also two of the vids show shooting through glass.......first rule of thumb for IR cameras, they dont shoot through glass or acrylic etc. Must have clear line to what you are shooting. Another point is first two are referenccing VRM temps while the last two are referencing under the core.

    Tech radar has some delta T graphs on the 1080 Ti versions and they are all within 2C which is a bit more easy to take in. *Not enough of these out but just looking at the design and build quality the phanteks looks top notch and actually outperforms in flow restriction. This is from their first block so things should have progressed after a few years.*

    Another thing to consider on some of the comparisons aren’t Apple for apples putting up a card with an actively cooled backplate against one using stock back plates because of the design of the strix and the LED on/off switch.

    Either way I’ll let you know how the Phanteks does. If it will keep the card under 45C load with ambient loop I’ll call that a win. *I ordered up a pair through Phanteks USA which should be here before the week is out.**Not waiting on the others. They should have had these products ready at or near launch of the GPU as I’m sure they had specs, engineering drawings and probably samples too well in advance and even if they didn’t Reviewers had cards in hand 5 months ago.**The most Interesting would be aquacomouter but they don’t make spec blocks. Everything is reference only.*

    Used Poopal to pay so it they are not represented correctly they will simply get sent back. Decent looking cards, can’t compare to EK or WC as they have no photos up. Im honestly thinking they will perform quit well, all within less than 2C which variables like application of TIM can change it. Either way low to mid 40s loaded is a far cry better than 70 with air that heats up my case interior. Phanteks looks like the first decent one to the party so they are getting my money.

    Nice looking blocks, I went for black

    For what it’s worth, I had great success with the Phanteks blocks on my Strix 1080 Ti cards. *I can’t say that I compared them to any other blocks myself, but they kept loaded temps in the low to mid 40 range and my loop was basic (single 360). *I suspect you will be pleased.

    Good luck and hope the block performs well.

    As for me, luckily, I have a relative in the US who's going back to our country this February and is willing to deliver to me the block. So I went ahead and bought the block. Since the block can only be bought in the US, I can't afford to wait for another week or two and risk the block not arriving on time. This is also my first time to build a watercooling rig, so it's a good thing this thread exists. May be able to learn a thing or two
