Alphacool has announced yet another RTX 30 series GPU water block. The Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX-N 3080 Founders Edition adds to the already impressive Eisblock line-up for Ampere based video card blocks. This latest water block will feature the same upgrades as the previously released versions including the special 1 mm thick ultra-soft thermal pads, full-cover nickel-plated copper block, and included backplate.
The Alphacool Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX-N 3080 Founders Edition water block provides RGB LED lighting and water cooling options that were previously unavailable to FE consumers. You can pick this block up for about $162 USD. Please read the press release notes from Alphacool below.
Alphacool Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX-N RTX 3080 Founders Edition with Backplate
Today, Alphacool presents its latest RTX 3080 GPU cooling block for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition to pre-order. Delivery is expected to start at the end of October. This cooler covers all the necessary components that require cooling. This includes the voltage converters, graphics memory and of course the GPU. All known hotspots of the graphics cards are completely cooled with water. Alphacool includes special 1 mm thick Ultra Soft thermal pads with this GPU cooler. As the name suggests, these are very soft and nestle perfectly to the components to be cooled. When the thermal pads heat up, the consistency and behavior is more like a thermal paste than a thermal pad. This of course has a positive effect on heat dissipation and is thermally far superior to standard thermal pads.
The Alphacool Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX-N RTX 3080 FE comes with a suitable backplate. This does not have to be purchased separately. Like all Eisblock Aurora coolers, these models offer a comprehensive Digital RGB, sometimes better known as aRGB, illumination.
