ES GPX Copper Carbon: a block for RTX 3080/90 and RX 6800/6900!
With this new waterblock, Alphacool offers us a reference for AMD and NVIDIA reference cards. It can be installed on the RX 6800/XT, RX 6900/XT and RX 6950 XT in AMD. On the NVIDIA side, the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are also compatible. The only constraint: to have a reference PCB. As you can see, the threads in G1/4″ are located at the back of the block. According to the brand, this allows for simplified integrations, even in tight spaces. By the way, speaking of small spaces, Alphacool mentions a reduced footprint to a single slot rather than a slot and a half. As for the materials used, the base is of course copper. However, Alphacool distinguishes itself by the presence of carbon fiber on the top of the waterblock. This choice also allows to reduce the weight of the whole compared to models in acetal or acrylic. For the moment, we do not know the selling price.
