I know, but I suppose launch day is not 26th since they promised stock at launch and NCIX (pretty good at finding stock) seems to be on pre order mode.

How long typically does it take for water blocks (full, gpu only, etc) to become available for new model cards after launch? Would a company like Evga have them first, or someone like EK? New to watercooling and I think this card will be a good candidate for it.

usually Eddy from EK talk about them on XS forum, he even show cad drawind first

with the motherboard it's more easy he receive a sample before the release date, but with Nvidia .... hard to say
