    Hi,
    Yeah I'm sure the rgb top is removable how else would one attach it to the board ?
    Only mono blocks attach from the back of the board.

    Mike, the round ring you drew a circle around looks like the old Corsair mounting rings. They were a Pain to install. As I recall it was on the H50. You had to very loosely attach the round ring to the backplate then set the pump through the grooves in the ring and twist it to lock it into place. You needed to do this without the block touching the CPU because of the thermal paste. Once you did that you could screw it down. It was a real pain to do. That ring wouldn't be a backplate because it wouldn't need the grooves on the inside. If that is the way it fits on, I won't be getting one. Those things would make a Preacher curse.

    That's as best as I can remember. I only bought 1.

    Just picked this up through work. I'm excited to see how much of an upgrade it is over my Surface Pro 2.

    WOW! Are there any GAMERS at this point in time who would buy a 2080 instead of a 1080 TI or move away from their 1080 TI for the RTX 2080?

    I thought about going for a 2080 Ti, but at that price point, it's not worth it for me. Even if I sold both of my current cards, I'd still need to throw on another three to four hundred dollars just to get one 2080 Ti, and it wouldn't even match the performance of my two current cards.. Looks like I'm skipping Turing.

    Thought about going for a 2080 card for upgrade from my 1050 in my Intel 7700 based PC, Asus G11CD-K, but decided price point way outta reach at this point, might go for a 1080 Zotac Mini, as most likely to fit inside this case, only other option is having a local shop swap cases of the hardware

    Seems you saw the GTA V benchmark with the 1080 TI beating the RTX 2080. Oh well.

    I am more than impressed with Jayz publicly eating crow about his previous " 2080 is really a ti and 2080 ti is really Titan" comments now that he sees the 20xx game performance isn't there to make that comparison. But the higher RTX price points are certainly there.
