EK Confirms Compatibility with GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER GPUs
EK®, the renowned pioneer in premium liquid cooling, announces full compatibility with the newly launched GeForce RTX™ 40 SUPER series graphics cards powered by NVIDIA® Ada Lovelace architecture. With the launch of the new GPU and all vendor partners announcing their complete lists of the upcoming graphics cards, EK has also updated all the water block compatibility lists found on the EK Compatibility Configurator and EK Custom Loop Configurator database.
The latest RTX 4080 SUPER promises competitive pricing and a lower entry point for PC users, and with that, it represents a more attractive product for custom-loop liquid cooling enthusiasts. RTX 4080 SUPER is bound to go on sale on January 31 with a price of $999 (MSRP), which is $200 less than the launch price of the original RTX 4080.
With the release of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, we have seen a plethora of new GPUs announced by the custom board partners, and EK strongly suggests using EK Compatibility Configurator or EK Custom Loop Configurator tools to find a suitable water block. EK is updating the compatibility database with newly released hardware from various manufacturers, adding compatible graphics cards to the list daily.
So far, the confirmed list of SUPER GPUs compatible with EK-Quantum Vector² water blocks is as follows:
EK-Quantum Vector² GPU Water Blocks
The Quantum Vector² series marks a significant evolution in EK’s liquid cooling technology. Designed for enthusiasts and gamers, these GPU water blocks offer unmatched cooling performance, ensuring your high-end graphics cards operate at optimal temperatures, even under extreme workloads.
At the heart of the Vector² water block lineup lies an innovative cooling engine, a state-of-the-art technology designed to deliver optimal thermal performance. This advanced system efficiently dissipates heat, ensuring your GPU remains cool under intense workloads. Complementing this technology is a substantial 10mm thick copper plate, enhancing the blocks’ ability to handle high heat outputs and maintain the stability and longevity of high-performance GPUs.
Crafted from premium materials, the Vector² water blocks exemplify a commitment to quality and durability. Combining top-tier materials and clever engineering results in a reliable and effective cooling solution for demanding PC builds. The aesthetic design of these blocks is both a technical and visual masterpiece, functioning exceptionally while enhancing your PC’s visual appeal with sleek and modern aesthetics.
Vector² water blocks come with a backplate, providing additional cooling and protection for your GPU. Adding to their design are rotatable magnetic covers, which add a touch of elegance and practicality. These covers conceal mounting screws for a cleaner appearance and can be rotated to align with your setup orientation.
In addition to these features, the Vector² lineup also includes Active Backplate (ABP) versions. The ABP options bring enhanced cooling for the backside of the GPU, ensuring even temperature distribution and improved thermal performance. The Direct Link terminal feature in these water blocks simplifies and diversifies tube routing options, enhancing the custom loop construction process.
Equipped with individually addressable RGB LEDs, these water blocks are compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from major motherboard manufacturers. This allows for seamless integration and synchronized lighting effects, enhancing your PC’s aesthetics for a personalized, harmonious visual experience. Lastly, complying with the EK-Matrix7 standard, these water blocks ensure perfect alignment and ease of integration with other EK components, simplifying the loop planning and assembly process.
