EK Launches EK-Quantum Vector TUF Water Blocks For ASUS TUF AMD Radeon RX 6800/6900 GPUs
Right now, it’s pretty hard to get current generation graphics cards from NVIDIA and AMD, but for the lucky few who do, EKWB has you covered for water cooling. EK has just released EK-Quantum Vector TUF waterblocks specially designed for ASUS TUF AMD Radeon RX 6800/6900 Series graphics cards.
EK Combines Advanced Cooling Motor With Excellent Aesthetics For EK-Quantum Vector Water Block
The 2nd Generation EK-Quantum Vector hydraulic blocks take advantage of an Open Split-Flow cooling motor design. The main feature of the cooling motor design is the low hydraulic flow restriction which allows the block to operate with weaker pumps or at lower settings. The block is CNC machined from electroplated nickel plated copper while the top plate is either glass-like cast acrylic or durable black POM acetal. The jet plate and fin structure geometry has been optimized to provide the best performance with excellent flow distribution regardless of the direction of the coolant flow.
To prevent leakage, EK uses high quality EPDM O-rings in the block to make sure everything is tight. Brass spacers are pre-installed for easy installation. The mouthpiece houses a D-RGB LED strip that illuminates the entire water block. It includes a total of 9 individually addressable RGB LEDs and an LED illuminated terminal. EK recommends that you combine it with an aluminum retention backplate. This improves the appearance of your card and adds passive cooling for the GPU, VRM, and memory. The back plate is available in black anodized or nickel plated.
Supported models are TUF-RX6800-O16G-GAMING, TUF-RX6800XT-O16G-GAMING and TUF-RX6900XT-O16G-GAMING. Nickel-Perspex and Nickel-Acetal are available for pre-order for $ 184.99 and $ 179.99, respectively. The nickel and black anodized backplate is available for pre-order for $ 52.89 and $ 45.99, respectively. ETA for the backplate and water block is early May.
