According to EKWB, the new EK-Quantum Vector² FTW3 is based on EVGAs due to “popular demand”. FTW3 models of the Geforce RTX 3080 (And Ti) as well 3090 The new synergistic, including D-RGB lighting and the in-house EK-Matrix 7 mounting system, must be combined (if desired) with a passive back plate. At its core is EKWB’s 3rd generation vector cooling system, which connects the nozzle plates with a 3D-engineered flexi insert to improve flow distribution and heat output.
Furthermore, it is based on a proven open-split-flow design with low hydraulic flow control for high performance even at low pump speeds and has a highly balanced flow area to ensure cooling of secondary components without affecting the flow distribution on the GPU. Core. The manufacturer claims that all “Vector²” GPU water blocks use a rugged design with a thick 11mm copper cooling plate and a direct-mounted acetyl connector and an O-ring top.
Two D-RGB lighting options, Nickel and Flexi and Nickel and Acetol, are available to complete the selection of materials. Both versions have a black anodized aluminum back plate and a CNC-milled base made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper. The Plexi version uses D-RGB-LED lights on the long edge of the water barrier, with the circuit board and diodes hidden in a clean aluminum profile. In the acetyl version, a dense D-RGB-LED strip illuminates the dividing line of the element extending to either side of the block.
Different stages of expansion
In addition to the Pure Cooling Block, the APP set is available as the “final mix” of Water Block, Active Pack Blade and Fastening mechanism. To cover the GPU board, a side cover is placed between the GPU Water Block and the Active Back Plate.
However, the ABP upgrade kit comes with all the components needed to convert the EK-Quantum Vector² FTW3 RTX 3080/90 water block into an active pack plate set (ABP set). The base of the Active Pack Plate is CNC-milled from nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while the surface is CNC-milled with glass-like molded acrylic or black POM acid.
Release and prices
The new water modules are expected to be available by mid-March 2022, through which prices will be called below, and there is already the possibility of pre-ordering through the manufacturer’s online store. In the meantime you can achieve compatibility with your own graphics card EK Cooling Configurator Cheque.
