Product information - EK-Vector Aorus RTX 2080 Backplate - Black

Watercooling does not merely offer excellent performance, it also adds a degree of individuality to a system. Design and function can be said to be of equal importance when it comes to compatible water cooling components. EK Water Blocks offer backplates such as the EK-Vector-cooler series that cover both aspects with ease.

The EK Water Blocks EK-Vector Aorus RTX 2080 Backplate at a Glance:

  • Backplate for EK-Vector Aorus RTX 2080 cooler
  • Black aluminium
  • Ensures increased stability of the graphics card
  • Great optics and passive cooling for the reverse of the PCB
  • Only usable in combination with EK-Vector Aorus RTX 2080 Cooler Blocks

A Backplate Provides Improved Stability & Better Optics

This pertains to a backplate for Gigabyte graphics cards from the GeForce RTX 2080 Aorus series. It is for use with a compatible GPU cooler from EK Water Blocks, is screwed to the back of the GPU and covers the whole area. Since the back of the graphics card is, as a rule, facing upwards - and thus easily viewable from outside the case in many instances, it makes for an effective visual upgrade, perhaps even more so than upgrades to the front of the graphics card.

In order to accomplish this aim, a small EK logo was placed on the black aluminium plate. Apart from that however, the surface is kept uncluttered. In addition to the visual upgrade, the backplate also offers greater stability to prevent the PCB bending due to one-sided tightening of the screws when attaching the main cooler and thus from being exposed to tension over extended periods of time.

Note: The backplate is not compatible with the GPU's original cooler, does not have water flowing through it, is not intended to fulfil the role of being a heat sink and cannot be used alone. However, it can be used without restriction in combination with the appropriate coolers from EK Water Blocks. The requisite screws are included in the delivery. These are longer than the original screws because they have to be screwed through the backplate and the PCB to the main cooler.
