EK Water Blocks has announced the launch of its narrowest GPU water block to date. The new EK-Quantum Vector Direct RTX RE Ti D-RGB is specifically design for reference Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards to improve compatibility in space-constrained PC cases.
To offer improved compatibility of custom liquid-cooled reference design Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards in small form factor systems, EKWB has removed the terminal block and instead, the fittings screw directly to the acrylic top, allowing for a narrower enclosure.
The EK-Quantum Vector Direct RTX RE Ti D-RGB GPU water block utilizes the EK signature single-slot slim design. The water block completely covers the reference Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti PCB, with the base milled from a nickel-plated electrolytic copper and a top cover machined from a high-quality cast acrylic that features digital RGB lighting for an elegant appearance.
This new low-profile GPU water block uses an open split-flow cooling engine design with low hydraulic flow restrictions that means it can be used in systems with weaker or low-speed pumps, while still achieving high thermal performance levels. EK claims the jet plate and fin structure geometry is optimised to produce even flow distribution and minimal losses when used in reversed water flow scenarios.
EKWB has equipped the EK-Quantum Vector Direct RTX RE Ti D-RGB GPU block with 5V D-RGB LED Lighting that connects to standard 3-pin 5V motherboards RGB headers and is compatible with leading motherboard RGB synchronisation software such as Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light and ASRock Polychrome Sync.
The EK-Quantum Vector Direct RTX RE Ti D-RGB series water blocks are available for order now via the EK Webshop and official EKWB retail outlets, priced at €151.16.
