EK Releases Quantum Vector FTW3 RTX 3070 GPU Water Block

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is ready to offer its premium high-performance GPU water block for EVGA FTW3 editions of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. This new water block is named EK-Quantum Vector FTW3 RTX 3070 D-RGB and is exclusively engineered for EVGA FTW3 RTX 3070 GPUs.

This water block is 314mm wide and 155mm long and cools all key components on the GPU's printed circuit board. The EK-Quantum Vector FTW3 RTX 3070 is compatible with EVGA FTW3 RTX 3070 graphics cards. This Vector water block actively cools the GPU, top-facing VRAM, power stages, and chokes in the VRM section. The newly developed FTW3 water blocks feature clean, symmetrically-shaped, optimized flow paths that reduce hydrodynamic instabilities and vortexing (dead spots) inside of them.
An Open Split-Flow cooling engine design is implemented, which proved to be a superior solution for GPU water blocks. It is characterized by low hydraulic flow restriction, meaning 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 performance when used in any given coolant flow orientation, unlike some products that are currently available on the market.
Fin array is populated by 28 microfins with 0.6mm wide microchannels that provide optimal cooling performance, without unnecessary flow restrictions or clogging hazards.

The base of the water block is CNC-machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while its top is CNC-machined either out of glass-like cast Acrylic or durable black POM Acetal. The 2nd generation Vector GPU water blocks also feature Acetal terminals. The watertight sealing is ensured by high-quality EPDM O-rings, while brass standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for a safe and easy installation procedure.

EK recommends you refer to the EK Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match. Compatible graphics cards are being added to the database daily.

D-RGB Lighting on EK-Quantum Vector FTW3 RTX 3070 D-RGB
The aesthetic end-piece is housing the addressable D-RGB LED strip. These water blocks boast a total of 8 individually addressable RGB LEDs and are compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 3-pin D-RGB LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB (addressable) header.

Backplate for the FTW3 RTX 3070 Water Block
EK recommends the purchase of a retention backplate, which improves the overall aesthetics of your graphics cards, and also provides additional passive cooling for the GPU core, backside VRAM on the cards, and backside of the printed circuit board VRM section on EVGA FTW3 GPUs.

Availability and Pricing
The EK-Quantum Vector FTW3 RTX 3070 full-cover water blocks and backplates are made and assembled in Slovenia, Europe, and are available for pre-order through the EK Webshop or EK Partner Reseller Network. These water blocks and backplates are expected to ship out in late March 2021. Pricing goes from 42.90-49.90 EUR (inc. VAT) for the backplates and 169.90-174.90 EUR (inc. VAT) for the blocks.
