EKWB was also at Gamescom 2018 for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-Series unveiling. In fact, they have prototypes of the EK-Vector RTX 2000 present. Our own Editor-in-Chief Andy Ruffell was even there to hold one on hand. Now you can have it as well, as EKWB has opened up pre-orders for it.
These EK-Vector RTX 2000 waterblocks are available in two versions: one for RTX 2080 and one for RTX 2080 Ti. Both are only compatible with the reference Founder’s Edition model PCB. They will also have RGB LED via a 4-pin 12V connector, compatible with most motherboards in the market.
The EK Vector Series water blocks use an Open Split-Flow cooling engine design. This has low hydraulic flow restrictions. So it can be used with pumps running on low-speed settings. While still achieving top performance, of course. The jet plate and fin structure geometry have been optimized to provide even flow distribution with minimal losses and optimal performances even when used in reversed water flow scenarios.
How Much is the EKWB EK-Vector RTX 2000?
There are four variants for each RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti to choose from. This includes a clear plexi and exposed copper verison, a copper with acetal version, a clear plexi with nickel plating, as well as an acetal with nickel plating.
