EK Announces EK-Quantum Vector² Water Cooling Product Series for EVGA XC3 RTX 3080 & 3090

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is introducing a whole series of Vector² liquid cooling products for EVGA's XC3 graphic cards. We made sure that powerful EVGA GeForce RTX 3080, 3080 Ti, and 3090 XC3 cards get their Vector² water block with passive backplate, new synergistic active backplate, and other aesthetic pieces to customize your water-cooled 30-series EVGA GPU to your own desires. The EK-Quantum Vector² EVGA XC3 RTX 3080/90 D-RGB is a complete liquid cooling solution that includes a new Vector² water block, black-anodized aluminum backplate, and mounting mechanism. Minimalistic straight lines dominate the new look of the next-gen water blocks.

The 3rd-generation Vector cooling engine combines the jet plate with a 3D machined Plexi insert to improve flow distribution and thermal performance. This new cooling engine is still based on an Open Split-Flow cooling engine design, 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. We went to great lengths to achieve a symmetrical flow domain by utilizing an internal bridge to secondary components. This was done to ensure the cooling of secondary components without sacrificing flow distribution over the GPU core.
All Vector² GPU water blocks use a thick 11mm copper coldplate with an acetal terminal attached directly and a robust single O-ring top design. This simple construction provides confidence during customization and maintenance. Two distinctive and unique D-RGB lighting options are now available to complement the material choice of the product, Nickel + Plexi and Nickel + Acetal. Both versions include a black-anodized aluminum backplate and a CNC-machined base made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper.
  • The Plexi version deploys D-RGB LED lighting along the longest edge of the water block for improved uniformity and brightness. The PCB and diodes are concealed inside a clean aluminum extrusion.
  • On the Acetal version, a dense D-RGB LED strip illuminates the parting line of the stand-out element on both sides of the block. This subtle effect allows vivid displays of color while the block remains entirely black.
  • Tactile magnetic covers conceal the terminal screws, which allows rotating the branding when the GPU is inverted in the case.
EK-Matrix7 Standard
EK-Matrix7 standardizes the dimensions of the products, including the port position and spacing, making liquid cooling loop assembly easier and more intuitive. All Vector² products feature full EK-Matrix7 compliance in every axis, ensuring ease of integration and alignment with all other EK-Matrix7 products. This brings perfect alignment of ports in both horizontal or vertical positions, meaning less time spent planning the loop and bending tubes while still having an epic build as the final product.

EK-Quantum Vector² XC3 RTX 3080/90 ABP Set D-RGB
This ultimate cooling set consists of a high-performance GPU water block and the latest generation of Active Backplate cooling solutions as a single enclosure. The GPU backside cooling is now provided by a full-blown water block with its own copper cold plate and a full-length acrylic or acetal top. The connectivity is also taken to another level with the "Direct Link" terminals that implement a conventional 4-port layout that allows serial and parallel connections from adjacent or opposing sides of the block.

This is the ultimate combination of a Vector² water block, Active Backplate, and mounting mechanism, available in Nickel + Plexi and Nickel + Acetal. Both versions include an EK-Quantum Vector² XC3 RTX 3080/90 ABP Side Cover in the anodized-black finish. The side cover is placed between the GPU water block and active backplate to conceal the GPU PCB. This offer allows users to buy the ultimate all-around cooling set for their GPU, ensuring the best possible cooling and performance uplift.

The combination of the EK-Quantum Vector² XC3 RTX 3080/90 water block, EK-Quantum Vector² XC3 RTX 3080/90 Active Backplate, and the EK-Quantum Vector² XC3 RTX 3080/90 ABP Side cover envelop the GPU from all sides.
