    There's also the sense of "comfort" (lack of better word) knowing I won't have to risk warranty issues should there be any issues down the line. Since warranty is void when mounting a waterblock. At least in Sweden.

    That said, if there aren't any news regarding a Poseidon soon I'll probably end up getting the Strix with blocks from EKWB and praying I'll never encounter any issues...

    Yes, the water cooling block is very nice really ! But I hope that Asus will bring out another water cooling solution.
    Looking at he new Asus 30-series model names listed on the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website,.. is the mention of the new EK and KO series.

    Neither of these codenames have been used by Asus before, it's possible that these could be watercooled variants, but we won't know until Asus officially announces what it has in store. https://portal.eaeunion.org/sites/od...b-530f96889dbc

    Sorry, the Eurasian Economic Commission location is Moscow, Russia,.. and working language for administration is Russian.

    VideoCards on 6th Sep 2020 published an article using EEC as source in English. https://videocardz.com/newz/gigabyte...o-launch-turbo

    Ah I see, thank you.
    I just don't understand why they would wait to announce/release a Poseidon model. Why not release it at the same time as the others?
    I did just order a 3080 strix, but there's a long delivery time so if Poseidon announce I can always change the order...

    Thanks,

    I unfortunately saw it a couple of weeks ago from EKs site and I'm not sure I'm impressed, It looks like it's just a reference card with preinstalled waterblock. I was hoping it would be more poweful than that. I mean regarding clockspeeds and so on. 2 power connects vs Strix 3 power connectors.
    So it would depend on how well it performs vs a watercooled strix
    The 1080Ti Poseidon had a slightly clock than 1080Ti Strix for example.

    +1 not impressed with the design, no backplate.

    I would preferer not having a 12-pin plug on the front of block, would have liked to see inlet/outlet on the front and the 12-pin on the right side, since they are basically building the PCB for the card those changes would seem posable.

    It kinda has a backplate.
    Only the 3070 has the 12 pin.

    Anyway, I'm waiting for my 3080 Strix OC to arrive, and have ordered blocks from EK, hopefully not much longer.

    Edit: Plus I prefer the looks of Poseidon card with beefier looks and fans etc
