    I'm a bit confused? What is a water block supposed to do except turn your GPU into a single slot.
    What is that? :confused:

    With those beefy coolers on the new 4000 series, watercooling have gone from adding weight to be an waightreducing option, with a better cooling capacity :)

    yep as I complained about in the asus 357mm !!! (roughly +2cm than the rtx 3000 which were already too long)
    this seems small, I'll wait to see if they make an active backplate vram or not they work fine to make your backplate go from 80°c to like 40°c extracting that heat out of your radiators instead
    they also cool the VRM of the gpu which...people seem to forget....see much more current and watts passing through than the giant megablock motherboard coolers
    power circuitry is the thing that blew up in the 3090 fiasco (nvidia limits are so high that your card will burn before it's too late soucre : buildzoid)

    Was just looking at Alphacool's 4090 block, 200x150mm(terminal included). Thats damn short for a GPU :)

    Looking at the EKWB block/BP combo is 238x148mm(terminal included), about the width of a standard EATX board
