The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition already sports one of the most unique original designs from NVIDIA to date, but you could still take things up several notches with this stunning water block from EKWB. The Special Edition water block, as the company dubbed it on Twitter, is supposedly its "most advanced" to date, and EKWB is hoping to open up pre-orders for it as soon as next week.

Specific details on the water block are scarce at the moment, but the teaser images reveal some gorgeous machining and threaded channels at the edge of the water block. You can also make out the RTX 3080 branding on what looks to be the acrylic segment at the far end. It fits in very nicely with the original aesthetic of the Founders Edition card, to say the least, and it's shaping up to be a beautiful piece of modern computing hardware and a welcome departure from the garish RGB LEDs that dot so many custom designs.

In the meantime, EKWB has also announced water blocks for the new AMD Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs, which are intended to be paired with a matching AM4 CPU block. In comparison however, the AMD design isn't quite as sleek or elegant, featuring a plain black acetal top with the Radeon branding emblazoned across it with addressable RGB LEDs to boot.
