Why Water-Cool My Graphics Card?Top-class performance in the world of graphics cards results in as much heat as ever these days. Getting the edge over online competition these days requires turning the performance up to 11. Node shrinks and more efficient layouts go some way to combatting this but there is a limit to how much help these can offer. Each generation is pushed to its own limits.
The problem is then aggravated by overclocking, as temperatures start to reach their limits. In short: if you want quiet operation even when playing games or benching, and you want performance at the same time, the only answer is water cooling. Apart from the usual components (radiator, pump, reservoirs) there is obviously the need for a compatible cooler for the GeForce RTX 2080 / 2080 Ti-cards like this model from water-cooling specialists WK Water Blocks.
Aesthetics and Connectors of EK Water Blocks EK-FC RTX 2080 +Ti Classic RGBThis is a full-block design, which covers all relevant heat sources of the graphics card and cools it effectively including the GPU, its memory and VRMs. Nickel-plated electrolytic copper and an optimised system of cooling channels are utilised to provide optimal thermal conductivity.
The cover consists of transparent acrylic glass including an integrated 12V RGB-LED strip with Gigabyte Mystic Light Sync-, ASUS Aura Sync-, MSI RGB Fusion- and ASRock Polychrome Sync compatibility. The connecting terminal provides two holes with G1/4 threads that can be used from both sides. The flat construction of the cooler makes connecting multiple graphics cards in an SLI configuration a breeze.
Note 1: For integration into the cooling loop, parts are required that are not included. For this purpose, 1 g of thermal paste as well as thermal pads do come included in order to establish contact between cooler and graphics card. Make sure that the cooler is used exclusively with GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti reference design cards! Der Originalkühler ist vor der Montage zu entfernen, womit die Herstellergarantie erlischt!
Note 2: This block is not compatible with the graphics cards factory default backplate. The original NVIDIA NVLink bridges can be used however.
