EKWB Unveil New Vector Series Water Blocks for EVGA 3070/3070 Ti FTW3
Mike Sanders / 2 months ago
EK Water Blocks (EKWB) is ready to offer its newest premium high-performance GPU water block for EVGA FTW3 editions of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Series graphics cards. This new water block is named EK-Quantum Vector FTW3 RTX 3070 Ti D-RGB and is compatible with both the EVGA FTW3 RTX 3070 and the 3070 Ti version of these GPUs.
This water block is 155 mm wide, and 314 mm long and cools all key components on the GPU’s printed circuit board. The EK-Quantum Vector FTW3 RTX 3070 Ti is compatible with EVGA FTW3 RTX 3070 and EVGA FTW3 RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards. This Vector water block actively cools the GPU, top-facing VRAM, power stages, and chokes in the VRM section.

The newly developed FTW3 water blocks feature clean and optimized flow paths that reduce hydrodynamic instabilities and vortexing (dead spots) inside of them. An Open Split-Flow cooling engine design is implemented, which proved to be a superior solution for GPU water blocks. It is characterized by low hydraulic flow restriction, meaning it can be used with weaker water pumps or pumps running on low-speed settings, and still achieve top performance. The jet plate and fin structure geometry have been optimized to provide even flow distribution with minimal losses and optimal performance when used in any given coolant flow orientation, unlike some products that are currently available on the market.
The base of the water block is CNC-machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while its top is CNC-machined either out of glass-like cast Acrylic or durable black POM Acetal. The 2nd generation Vector GPU water blocks also feature Acetal terminals. The watertight sealing is ensured by high-quality EPDM O-rings, while brass standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for a safe and easy installation procedure.
The aesthetic end-piece houses the addressable D-RGB LED strip. These water blocks boast a total of 8 individually addressable RGB LEDs and are compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 3-pin D-RGB LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB (addressable) header.
EK recommends the purchase of a retention backplate, which improves the overall aesthetics of your graphics cards, and also provides additional passive cooling for the GPU core, backside VRAM on the cards, and backside of the printed circuit board VRM section on EVGA FTW3 GPUs.
