It is nice how AMD has only single slot connectors. When you put water block on it it looks so sleek. And on Nvidia cards you have that stupid DP port sticking out. I have a desire to cut it out just to have a single slot card with a water block.

Was about to ask what the hell you are talking about. So I looked at the 2080ti to see what you mean. Luckily with the 1080ti founders you can go single slot, and you are right. It does look nice. I had to do it for mine.

Nice design, but EK need to do some more budget friendly options, considering this is at best a mid-range card.

They are trying that with those cheaper Aluminium blocks, but they are not as well supported as their proper lineup.

I'd love to see cheaper water blocks hit the market.

Yeah at first I thought blocks this low down the stack would be a bit pointless with how much they cost but in hindsight these cards are hitting RTX 2080 performance under water(Even surpassing on min frames) so I guess you could justify the cost with the "cheaper" blocks. Though still that's only at ~250W so a beefy air cooler should be able to push that somewhat ok when they arrive.
