EKWB has introduced its new water blocks designed for AMD’s reference design Radeon VII GPUs. The EK-Vector series water blocks for AMD Radeon VII will enable owners to use custom liquid cooling systems and either run cooler, or overclock more.

EKWB’s EK-Vector Radeon VII water blocks cover the GPU, the memory, as well as its VRM. The manufacturer claims that its new water blocks feature a larger footprint when compared to the previous-generationm and improves cooling performance to let the GPU to work at higher clocks for longer periods of time, or enabling a higher overclocking potential. Just like other modern EK-Vector water blocks, they feature cold plates with proprietary Open Split-Flow micro-channels.

EKWB will offer four versions of its EK-Vector Radeon VII water blocks. Depending on the variant, the base of the water blocks are made of copper or nickel-plated electrolytic copper, whereas the top is made of high-quality acrylic material or POM Acetal material. They also feature an LED strip on the front corner, which uses a 4-pin 12 V connector and can be controlled by RGB command software from the leading motherboard makers (ASUS, ASRock, GIGABYTE, MSI).

Traditionally, EKWB’s water blocks use standard G ¼ inch barbs for tubing and are thus are compatible with a wide range of custom liquid cooling systems. To ensure proper sealing, EKWB’s new water blocks use EPDM O-Rings.

The EK-Vector Radeon VII water blocks and backplates are already available directly from EKWB and will be available from the company’s partners shortly. The water blocks cost €129.90 - €149.90, whereas the backplates are priced at €36.90 - €43.90.

    Nice, looks good. Hopefully it performs. I have two EK WB on my 1080ti and my GPU never goes above 48C undeer hours of gaming or heavy rendering. Reply

    That's pretty nice cooling performance. How big are your radiators? Reply

    It's a 3 fan radiator for the gpu alone. I also bought a double pump (basically two pwm pumps combined) to increase pressure/flow. Works great and is nice and quiet. Reply

    Nice! Good radiators indeed make a big difference. Reply

    According to Tomshardware Germany the EK block is actually on of the worse ones for the 2080 ti.

    It's in german, but the charts should be helpful anyway.

    I have an aftermarket Raijintek Morpheus II air cooler replacing my GTX 970's stock cooler, using liquid metal TIM, and 2 pressure optimized fans in a SFF chassis and I have slightly better temps than that (38c idle, 47c load). Reply

    Anything that runs under 50C constant is a big winner imo. My temps were better when I first installed it, I think i was capping out at 40C under load. Again, on my 1080ti. I need to clean the water block soon, it's been a year and a half without a cleaning and i can see some things getting stuck in the fins.

    Pro tip for anyone interested in water cooling. Buy some medical bandage tape. The kind that is used on wounds but still allows it to breath. You can put that over the water input on the resovour so that no dust gets in there. It allows pressure to adjust inside the radiator which can improve longevity of your pumps.

    A designs card works by computing how pictures show up, especially 3D pictures, and renders them to the screen. 3D pictures and video http://www.ameriplusfinancial.com/ pictures take a great deal of preparing limit, and numerous designs processors are perplexing, expect fans to cool them and need direct power supply.
