Eiswolf 2 for 3080, what sized radiator?

Hi I have a Zotac trinity oc 3080 which is running a bit hot.
I was hoping to get a Eiswolf 2 for it with either a 360 or 420mm radiator for it if I decide to add the CPU into the loop.
Is there an option for a prefilled 420 or would I have to get the radiator, tubing and quick disconnects separately for it?
I have a Silverstone Ft02 which isn't really build for watercooling so I can put the 420 down the bottom and a 120 up the top in the future I guess.

Uhmmm, in this case i would definietly recommend to use at least a 420 mm radiator and go for customloop. This is my personal opinion really.

Would the Eiswolf 2 pump not be enough for a 420mm radiator? I have a Noctua DH15 on the CPU at the moment and it's holding it's own.
I was thinking just the Eiswolf with a big radiator down the bottom for now with the CPU on air. Can we convert the Eiswolf 2 block into a standard block if I go to a custom loop in the future?

Yes you can do that. You can use every part for your future loop.I would not recommend to go with the smal pump for such a loop. I would personally use a D5 for the system.

Just to clarify, you would advise against an AIO GPU with a 420mm rad by itself or would it be ok?

No i did not said that. An AIO only for the CPU with a 420 mm radiator is okay but if you want to expand the loop with an additional GPU block it would be too much for the pump. A stornger pump in the loop is in my opinion better.

Oh awesome! I'll just wait for the Eiswolf 2 for the reference 3080 and pair it with a 420mm rad when it becomes available then! I'll rework the loop in the future if the CPU struggles
