rtx 3090 xtreme waterforce Water block type

hello everyone =) has anyone found out what type of waterblock the xtreme waterforce 3090 has, if it's copper, brass or aluminum? i'm referring to the xtreme waterforce without the AIO.

 

Correct me if i'm wrong, please: i have a copper rad. having a brass plated block or a copper block, is ok for a copper loop right? it's just if other metal is aluminum is the problem. is my understanding correct?

 

thanks in advanced!

chris

guys to add.... i did find in the aorus/gigabyte website (GIGABYTE Announces AORUS XTREME GeForce RTX™ 30 Series WATERFORCE graphics card | News - GIGABYTE Global), it mentions there "The sunk-designed copper micro fins also shorten the heat conduction path from the GPU". which confused me because in the specs it has an aluminum radiator, though! the aluminum radiator one is for the waterforce that comes with an AIO.

 

or is that the thing? The one that has an AIO is an aluminum built, and the one without an AIO are intended for enthusiasts who normally has a copper loop design?

It's copper. 99.9% of custom loops out there are copper/brass. Esp high end ones. So going aluminum would be all kinds of insane (esp. for a 3090).

I KNOW I KNOW, RIGHT!? so, why the aluminum radiator though? there are mixed publications from gigabyte which are confusing. oh thanks for responding by the way.

That's an AIO thing mainly. There are some nasty examples of corrosion out there, but as long as it doesn't leak and makes it to the warranty period, they don't really care.

LOL makes sense.....just thought (because i don't have any waterforce cards yet), just thought and assumed they would be using the same waterblock for both the aio design and those for custom loops one.
