EK Releases Aluminum Based Water Blocks for NVIDIA RTX Series Graphics Cards
EK® Water Blocks, the market leader in PC custom liquid cooling, is announcing the expansion of their Fluid Gaming aluminum based custom loop liquid cooling line. With price and performance in mind, EK Fluid Gaming is an inexpensive ticket to the custom liquid cooling world.
Following the release of copper blocks for NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2080 and 2080Ti cards, EK is now launching one aluminum water block that is cross-compatible with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080Ti cards which use the reference PCB and layout.
EK-AC GeForce RTX
The EK-AC GeForce RTX is a full-cover water block designed and developed in cooperation with NVIDIA and it fits several high-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards. This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas, thus allowing the graphics card to reach higher boost frequencies. The loud stock fan gets to be replaced by a slim-line minimalistic water block that will not only make your PC look better, but also make the graphics card perform better. Finally, you will be able to enjoy your favorite games in silence. This water block also comes with a sleek matte black backplate.
To satisfy the fans of RGB LEDs, this water block comes equipped with an integrated D-RGB (addressable) lighting solution, where each LED is individually addressable and controllable through the motherboard RGB software. For the correct header, please consult your motherboard manual, connect it to a 5V D-RGB (A_RGB) header on your motherboard.

As you might know, mixing copper and aluminum parts in the same loop is not recommended. Always use only one type (only copper or only aluminum) of metal in the same loop! Read more about aluminum vs. copper here.
