EK Water Blocks Releases Vector Water Block for EVGA RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 XC3

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is launching its premium high-performance GPU water block for the EVGA XC3 edition of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. The new water block is named EK-Quantum Vector XC3 RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB and is exclusively engineered for the EVGA XC3 RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 GPUs. The EK-Quantum Vector XC3 RTX 3080/3090 water block is compatible with EVGA XC3 RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards. This Vector water block actively cools the GPU, top-facing VRAM, and inductors and MOSFETs in the VRM section.

These newly developed XC3 water blocks feature 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.

EK Releases a Perfect Cable Management System for RGB Cables

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is introducing the EK-Loop CMS, a cable management system comprised of six touch fasteners and a self-adhesive fabric. These hook and loop fasteners allow you to securely connect RGB (and D-RGB) connectors without any worry about them coming apart later, which is pretty usual during the transport of a PC or regular maintenance and dust removal.

These stylish fasteners envelop the joint connection of the RGB connectors on each side and strap them together. Both cables are pulled through a fastener, connected, and in the end, the fastener is strapped together around the entire joint disabling any disconnection of the header. EK-Loop CMS fasteners are black with subtle grey EK branding on the middle that is visible once the cable management system is in place.

EK Launches Mystic Fog Cryofuel Coolant for Vivid D-RGB Effects

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, has launched a brand new RGB-focused coolant based on the latest formula with long-lasting stability and vivid addressable D-RGB reactivity. The coolant is specially developed to bring the best possible light dispersion to various PC liquid cooling products, and it's named EK-CryoFuel Mystic Fog. The coolant is already available in Limited Edition bottles.

The new coolant contains everything a high-end liquid cooling system requires for efficient thermal performance and to provide the necessary protection for water blocks. It carries the essential synergistic corrosion inhibitors and biological inhibitors, promoting high thermal efficiency, and long and safe operational life for liquid cooling products.

EK Expands Flow Indicator Portfolio With Nickel Variants

EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer from Europe, is releasing another series of flow indicators that belong to the Quantum Line. These Quantum flow indicators visually display the coolant flow rate, which is often hard to see with the naked eye. This allows you to instantly see if your loop operation is nominal or there's trouble with the pump or flow in some other area. It also makes the loop look even cooler! It features addressable RGB illumination where the LEDs are covered with a stylish nickel-plated aluminium piece that hides hotspots. Aside from the standalone version, there are two more that mount directly on the EK-Quantum Vector GPU water blocks. All three come with nickel-plated aluminium cover.

This standalone nickel-plated flow indicator features three female G1/4" ports. It can be mounted in the middle of a tube-run with two fittings or fastened to any G1/4" port on a radiator, pump, or even a block by using a dual male-threaded extender. Any of the ports can be used as either inlet or outlet. It can be installed in a straight flow-through setup, or it can replace a 90° angled fitting or a 90° bend in your loop.

EK Announces Quantum Vector RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB Water Blocks

The moment many of us were waiting for is finally here. The launch of the latest edition NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards for gamers and content creators is finally announced. The GeForce 30 Series is the 2nd generation of RTX graphics cards which are expected to become available from September 17th. Now, since many of us are very eager to get our hands on our first RTX 30 Series, and add it to our liquid cooling loops, EK is advising everyone to hold off their purchase until the compatibility list is fully confirmed.

EK is ready to release the 2nd generation of EK-Quantum Vector GPU water blocks, but since the official availability of these graphics cards is more than two weeks away, EK will hold off the pre-orders, for now, to prevent users from purchasing incompatible water blocks. Otherwise, it would cause stress and unnecessary loss of time and finances for the end-user.

EK Launches High-Performance White Vardar D-RGB Fans

EK Water Blocks, the premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing the white version of its 120 mm addressable D-RGB Vardar fans. The frame is made in a matte white, with milky white fan blades that diffuse the light. Another added benefit is the ability to daisy-chain the RGB of these Vardar fans. As their black counterparts, they also incorporate the Extended Range (ER) of the PWM operation feature and the special Start-Stop function which allows for a true 0 dB experience and truly silent environment. With this feature, not only will you be able to enjoy a totally silent PC, but it also proves to be very useful in preventing radiator dust buildup if your PC is idling for prolonged periods. All of this expands the lifespan of the fan.

These fans have a dual ball bearing, most commonly used in industrial fan applications. The operational range starts at 500rpm and goes all the way to 2200rpm. This extended range allows for a wide range of scenarios, covering the requirement of either silence or high performance in a single fan. Aside from the low rpm operation, the fan features a Start-Stop function that will provide the user with a true 0 dB noise environment. When a fan curve is set with the minimum threshold point below 25-30% PWM duty cycle (depending on the motherboard model), the motor and electronics will turn off and the fan will simply stop spinning. EK-Vardar EVO 120ER D-RGB - White restarts operation automatically as fan control ramps up its operational duty cycle past threshold start-stop point.

EK Launches a Quantum Revolution of Tubular D5 Combos

EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer based in Europe, is releasing a new Quantum Line of genuine D5 pump based combo units. These units are a revolution and an upgrade of the market-proven design used in the old EK-XRES Revo generation of pump-res combos since the new units have twice as much ports. EK-Quantum products come with sophisticated 5 V addressable D-RGB LEDs which can be controlled through your motherboard RGB control software or the upcoming EK-Connect controller unit.

The most popular cylindrical pump-res combo on the market is redesigned, upgraded and is better in every way. The top is now featuring three G1/4" ports, one of which has a pre-installed nickel-plated brass internal tube which helps to prevent the splashing of the coolant inside the reservoir if the top is to be used as an inlet. This reduces the chances of air being sucked in by the pump and foaming of the coolant as well. Any of these ports can also use used for filling the system or adding additional upcoming accessories (thermal probes, LEDs, etc.)
