EK Announces Vector² Water Blocks for Reference RTX 3080, 3080 Ti, & 3090

EK, is introducing a whole new dimension of liquid cooling for modern graphics cards. RTX 3080, 3080 Ti, and 3090 cards following the reference PCB design get their Vector² water block with passive backplate, new synergistic active backplate, and other aesthetic pieces to customize your water-cooled reference RTX GPU to your own desires. The EK-Quantum Vector² RE RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB is a complete liquid cooling solution including a new Vector² water block, black-anodized aluminium backplate, and mounting mechanism. The new look of the next-gen water blocks is dominated by minimalistic straight lines.

The 3rd-generation Vector cooling engine combines the jet plate with a 3D machined Plexi insert to improve flow distribution and thermal performance. This new cooling engine is still based on an Open Split-Flow cooling engine design, which proved to be a superior solution for GPU water blocks. It is characterized by low hydraulic flow restriction, meaning it can be used with weaker water pumps or pumps running on low-speed settings, and still achieve top performance. Great care was taken to achieve a symmetrical flow domain by utilizing an internal bridge to secondary components. This was done to ensure the cooling of secondary components without sacrificing flow distribution over the GPU core.
