Product information - EK-Vector Trio RTX 2080 Ti RGB - Nickel + AcrylicThe EK-Vector Trio RTX 2080 Ti RGB from EK Water Blocks is a premium and high-performance cooler designed for custom water cooling that fits the custom PCB of the MSI Gaming X Trio 2080 Ti series. Thanks to the optimised structure of the cooling channels as well as the nickel-plated electrolytic copper block, the GPU receives highly efficient cooling across all parts of the card. The heatsink also offers fantastic looks due to the use of transparent acrylic glass.
The EKWB EK-Vector Trio RTX 2080 Ti RGB Water Block at a Glance:
- Customised for the MSI Gaming X Trio 2080 Ti series with custom PCB
- Effective cooling performance thanks to nickel-plated electrolytic copper base
- Impressive aesthetics with transparent acrylic glass cover and use of stainless steel
- Four G1/4" ports for integration into loop
- Four integrated 12V RGB-LED strips with MSI Mystic Light Sync compatibility
Why 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!
This problem is made worse when factoring in the role of overclocking, critical temperatures can quickly be breached while pushing silicon to its limits. In short: If you want the highest possible clock frequencies with the lowest noise, watercooling is the solution for you. Aside from the usual components (radiator, pump, reservoir) a compatible cooler for the MSI Gaming X Trio 2080 Ti series - such as this model from water-cooling specialists EK Water Blocks.
Aesthetics and Connectors of the EK Water Blocks EK-Vector Trio RTX 2080 Ti RGBThis pertains to a full-block design which covers all the relevant heat sources on the graphics card, offering effective cooling for the GPU, the memory and the VRM. The nickel-plated electrolytic copper as well as the optimised channel structure help in optimising the thermal dissipation.
The cover consists of transparent acrylic glass along with elegant stainless steel and four integrated 12V RGB-LED strips that are compatible with MSI Mystic Light Sync. Four G1/4" thread ports allow the block to be integrated into the loop, and the flat design of the cooler also happens to make the installation of multiple graphics card in SLI a breeze.
Note 1: Integration into a custom loop will require fittings not included within the scope of the included parts. 1g of thermal paste comes included as well as thermal pads that ensure contact between the cooler and the graphics card. Users should bear in mind that the cooler is exclusively for use with MSI graphics cards, specifically the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Trio with a custom PCB! The original cooler must be removed prior to installation which invalidates the manufacturer's guarantee!
Note 2: This block is not compatible with the default factory-mounted backplate of the MSI Gaming X Trio 2080 Ti series. The original NVIDIA NVLink bridges can however be used.
- Material: Nickel-plated electrolytic copper (base), acrylic (cover), stainless steel (cover)
