Product information - EK Vector RTX RE Ti RGB - Nickel + AcetylThe EK Vector RTX RE TI RGB - Nickel + Acetal from EK Water Blocks is a high quality, high-performance heat sink for custom water cooling that fits multiple NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in reference design. An optimized channel structure and an electrolytic copper block ensure efficient cooling of the GPU, memory and voltage converter. The heat sink with its integrated RGB lighting also provides a stylish look.
The EKWB EK Vector RTX RE TI RGB Water Cooling Block at a Glance:
- Precise fit for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in reference design
- Effective cooling capacity due to nickel-plated electrolytic copper bottom
- Elegant appearance due to black acetyl lid
- Integrated RGB lighting
- Four G1/4-inch ports for integration into the loop
Why Should I Cool my Graphics Card with Water?Peak performance in the GPU segment typical comes with a caveat: excessive heat. This is due to the fact that getting the last drops of performance from the card's Compute Units requires all the dials to be turned to eleven, with the decisive advantage over competing products coming down to who has the superior cooling. Smaller nodes and more efficient layouts certainly help contain this problem, although they don't completely resolve it. Moreover, each generation pushes things to the max - and when this happens, there's really only one alternative: water.
The problem is aggravated by overclocking, because temperatures can reach critical values. In short: If you want low volume even when playing games or even when benching and want maximum speeds, you can hardly avoid water cooling. In addition to the usual components (radiator, pump, expansion tank), a suitable cooler for NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is of course required - just like this model from the water cooling specialists at EK Water Blocks.
Aesthetics and Connectors of the EK Water Block EK-Vector RTX RE TI RGBIt's a full-block design that covers all relevant heat sources of the graphics card and thus cools effectively - i.e. the GPU, the memory and the voltage converters. Electrolytic copper and an optimized channel structure are used to optimally transfer the heat.
The lid consists of black acetyl. The card is illuminated by several RGB LEDs. The LED strip can be directly connected to a compatible mainboard (ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light, ASRock Polychrome Sync) via a 4-pin 12VGRB connector. The connection terminal has four holes (G1/4 inch thread). The flat design of the cooler makes it easy to connect multiple graphics cards via NVIDIA's NVLink.
Note 1: For integration into the cooling loop, connections are required that are not included in the delivery. Thermal paste and thermal pads are already included to establish contact between cooler and graphics card. The cooler is only suitable for GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards in the reference design! The original cooler must be removed prior to installation, voiding the manufacturer's warranty!
Note 2: This cooling block is not compatible with the factory mounted backplate of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. However, the original NVIDIA NVLink bridges can be used.
