EK Adds a New Member To Its Classic Line With a Strix RTX 3070 GPU Water Block
EK®, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is ready to offer an additional Classic design GPU water block for the ASUS® ROG® Strix edition of NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX™ 3070 graphics cards. Minimalistic design with fewer details makes this EK-Classic Line water block more affordable while still offering all the qualities of an EK product, such as high performance, excellent customer support, and a comprehensive installation manual.
An EK Water Block for ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 Graphics Cards
After the initial launch of the EK-Classic Strix 30xx series in February, the EK-Classic GPU Water Block Strix RTX 3070 D-RGB now complements the portfolio and offers a Classic solution for the ROG Strix RTX 3070 graphics cards (compatibility list below).
It actively cools the GPU, top-facing VRAM, MOSFETs in the VRM section, PWM controller, and all the chokes, including those in the input power rail. Using a design that is in contact with every single inductor on the PCB minimizes the chances of any potential coil whine.
The base of the water block is CNC-machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while its top is CNC-machined out of glass-like cast Acrylic. 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.
