EK has officially unveiled their Vector series of RTX 2000 series water blocks, moving away from the brand’s EK-FC series name. According to EK, Full Cover (FC), is no longer an adequate name for their water block lineup, given the company’s addition of new features such as RGB compatibility.   

EK’s new RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti water blocks are designed to cool graphics cards that make use of Nvidia’s reference PCB design, cooling the GPU core, VRAM and VRM components by channelling water over these specific areas. 

In total, EK has revealed eight new RTX series water blocks, four for Nvidia’s reference RTX 2080 PCB and four for Nvidia’s reference RTX 2080 Ti PCB. These models include a Copper+Plexi model, a Copper + Acetal model, a Nickel-plated Plexi model with RGB compatibility and a Nickel-plated Acetal version with RGB compatibility. The image below showcases the RGB enabled block variants. 

EK’s RGB water blocks are designed with 4-pin 12V RGB controllers in mind, supporting popular motherboard standards such as ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light and ASROCK Polychrome Sync.  

EK has also redesigned their core cooling engine to enable increased cooling performance, offering a larger footprint than previous generation block designs, offering more surface area for efficient heat transfer.  EK has further optimised their fin geometry to decrease hydraulic flow restrictions, allowing EK’s latest water blocks to be used with weaker, lower RPM water pumps.

EK’s Vector 2080/2080 Ti water blocks are available to pre-order starting today from the EK webs shop and will start shipping on September 20th. EK-Vector RTX backplates are also available to order, though these parts are set to start shipping on October 5th. 

Below is EK’s official price list for their new EK-Vector series of RTX (reference PCB) compatible products.
