EK Releases Vector RTX Series Water Blocks for ASUS ROG Strix Series Graphics Cards

Feb 18, 2019 @ 22:01 CST | Stock Ticker(s): TPE:2357

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia based water cooling gear manufacturer, is introducing its new generation water blocks for the popular ROG Strix GeForce RTX series graphics cards, based on Turing TU106, Turing TU104 and Turing TU102 graphics processor.




EK-Vector Strix RTX:


The inspiration for the new GPU block name "Vector" came from the sheer computing power of the graphics cards that are on the market today. Naming a water block "Full Cover" isn't enough these days, when the product is packed with unique features, such as these.


The EK Vector Strix RTX water blocks are specially designed for multiple ROG Strix GeForce RTX Turing based graphics cards. The water block itself uses the signature EK single slot slim look, and it covers the entire PCB length. This sophisticated cooling solution will transform your powerful ROG graphics card into a minimalistic, elegant piece of hardware with accented RGB LED lighting. The block also features a unique aesthetic cover over the block Terminal which is designed to showcase the graphics card model via LEDs, visible from the side.




The water block comes in three different models tailor-made for either ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070, ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 and ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards. Each of them directly cools the GPU, VRAM and the VRM (voltage regulation module) as cooling liquid is channeled directly over these critical areas. This allows the graphics card to remain stable at high overclocks, intensive workloads and also enables it to run at its maximum Boost Clock. Ultimately, you can enjoy gaming at the highest possible performance of your graphics card, stutter-free in a low noise environment.




The newly developed water blocks feature the signature EK-Vector cooling engine that has a larger footprint compared to the previous generation of full cover water blocks. This results in a larger surface area for heat transfer which allows the increase of thermal performance of these water blocks.






EK-Vector Strix RTX 2080 Ti water blocks are compatible with ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards based on Turing graphics processors.


EK-Vector Strix RTX 2080 water blocks are compatible with ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards based on Turing graphics processors.


EK-Vector Strix RTX 2070 water blocks are compatible with ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards based on Turing graphics processors.


As always, we recommend that you refer to the EK Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match! EK is updating the compatibility list with newly released hardware from various manufacturers to the EK Cooling Configurator database so that compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on daily basis:
