The nickel-plated full copper block guarantees efficient cooling of the GPU, memory and voltage converter. With its transparent acrylic glass cover, the black aluminum frame and the integrated RGBpx lighting, it has a very elegant look and delivers that certain WOW effect through the view of the cooling liquid flowing through it.

Why should I use water to cool my graphics card?
In the graphics card segment, top performance is still bought at the price of top heat development. Because only if the clock screw is turned to the stop and the calculation units are used up to the last segment, the decisive advantage over the competing products can be achieved. Smaller structure widths and more efficient layouts can limit this problem, but not completely eliminate it. Because, as expected, the next generation will also be pushed to the max.
The problem is exacerbated by your own overclocking, because the temperatures can reach critical values. In short: If you want a low volume when playing games or even when benching and possibly want to turn the clock screw at the same time, you can hardly avoid water cooling. In addition to the usual components (radiator, pump, expansion tank), a suitable cooler is of course required for NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Strix / 3090 Strix - like this model from the Wakü specialist aqua computer.
Optics and connections of the kryographics NEXT RTX 3080 Strix / RTX 3090 Strix
The aqua computer kryographics NEXT RTX 3080 Strix / RTX 3090 Strix is a cooler in full block design, which covers all relevant heat sources of the graphics card and thus effectively cools - i.e. the GPU, the memory and the voltage converters. In the area of the GPU, a stainless steel jetplate ensures optimal cooling performance, while wide channels in other areas of the cooler guarantee low flow resistance. Nickel-plated, extremely thermally conductive copper is used to optimally transfer the resulting heat.
The cover made of transparent acrylic glass is reinforced by a frame made of black anodized aluminum. The cooler is impressively illuminated with a total of 13 individually addressable RGBpx LEDs. It is controlled via an aqua computer device with an RGBpx output or a mainboard with a compatible output. The connection terminal has four bores (G1 / 4 inch thread). Due to the flat design of the cooler, it is also possible to connect several graphics cards via NVIDIA's NVLink without any problems.
Note 1: Connections that are not included in the scope of delivery are required for integration into the cooling circuit. Thermal paste and thermal pads are already included to establish contact between the cooler and graphics card. Make sure that the cooler is only suitable for ASUS graphics cards of the GeForce RTX 3080/3090 Strix type! The original cooler must be removed before assembly, which invalidates the manufacturer's guarantee!
Note 2: This cooling block is not compatible with the factory-mounted backplate of the GeForce RTX 3080 Strix / RTX 3090 Strix. However, the original NVIDIA NVLink bridges can be used.
