EK Water Blocks has unveiled the EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB for installation on Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. The manufacturer clarifies that this waterblock is not compatible with other cards based on Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 series.
Waterblock with a copper base size of 237 x 126 mm belongs to the category of waterblocks with full coverage, that is, heat is removed from the GPU, memory chips and components of the power subsystem. According to the manufacturer, symmetrical channels for the coolant provide a smooth flow without perturbations and low hydrodynamic resistance, so the waterblock works effectively even in systems with low power pumps. The area adjacent to the GPU has 28 ribs, which form an array of micro-channels with a width of 0.6 mm. The base is nickel-plated.
Vodoblock is available in two versions – with a transparent lid and with black. In both cases it is decorated with 12 addressable LEDs. The backlight is compatible with Asus Aura Sync and other common synchronization technologies.

In addition, you can buy an additional euro reinforcement plate, mounted on the back of the circuit board, distributes the thermal and mechanical loads, and gives the video card with a waterblock more attractive appearance.
