EKWB EK-Vector RTX Water Block

After more than 5 years of the highly praised and class-leading performance of the CSQ design series, today EKWB is launching the new Quantum family of cooling, starting with the flagship Velocity CPU blocks and Vector GPU blocks. Featuring a newly redesigned cooling engine with a larger footprint for more surface area, the Vector Series blocks allow increased thermal performance. 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, which means that it can be used with weaker water pumps, or pumps running on low-speed settings and still achieve top performance. The jet plate and fin structure geometry have been optimized to provide even flow distribution with minimal losses and optimal performances even when used in reversed water flow scenarios. New design cues feature a minimalistic full cover single-slot solution for an elegant look with a unique aesthetic cover over the connection terminal. Models with RGB embedded offer a touch of customizable lighting that is compatible with all major motherboard lighting solutions for a synchronized and cohesive system theme.

ProClockers would like to thank EK Water Blocks for sending over the new Vector lineup to test out!

EKWB’s take on the EK-Vector RTX 2000 series water blocks for NVIDIA GeForce RTX series graphics cards:
The inspiration for the new GPU block name “Vector” came from the sheer computing power of the graphics cards that are on the market today. Naming a water block “Full Cover” isn’t enough these days, when the product is packed with unique features, such as these.

The EK® Vector RTX water block is specially designed for multiple NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX Turing based reference design graphics cards. The water block itself uses the signature EK® single slot slim look, and it covers the entire PCB length. This sophisticated cooling solution will transform your beefy graphics card into a minimalistic, elegant piece of a hardware. The block also features a unique aesthetic cover over the block Terminal which is designed to reveal the graphics card model, visible from the side.

The front aesthetic corner piece is lit up with LED strip and can be easily removed to replace the LED strip with your preferred solution. This product is compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 4-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +12V marking on the RGB header.
