EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 D-RGB Active Backplate - Black SE is a cutting-edge addition to the EK® Quantum Line. It is made to complement the existing EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 – Special Edition water blocks and actively cool the backside of a Founders Edition NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3090 GPUsThese newly developed active backplates require at least one slot above them to be empty as they stand 16.8mm tall from the PCB across the whole GPU.

For a precise compatibility match of this water block, we recommend you refer to the EK Cooling Configurator.

NVIDIA FE RTX 3090 Active backplate

EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 D-RGB Active Backplate

The EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 D-RGB Active Backplate links the water block and active backplate with a new terminal, which replaces the original terminal that comes with your water block. As a result, the whole enclosure requires only one inlet and one outlet, which removes unnecessary additional tubing and reduces clutter. It is the ultimate aesthetic and performance solution that sandwiches your GPU between two water blocks, allowing for maximum cooling.

The brand new Vector Active Backplate directly cools all PCB hotspots found on the backside of the GPU core and VRM, but especially the rear-mounted VRAM. Cooling liquid is channeled over all these critical areas.

NVIDIA FE RTX 3090 Active backplate

The inside of the water block follows the stock backplate aesthetics with ribs that span the entirety of the block. The new terminal has 4 ports, two direct (end ports) and two through port-style (either on the bottom or top of the terminal). It can be flipped to have the through ports either on the side of the water block or active backplate, but the flow cannot be reversed. 

NVIDIA FE RTX 3090 Active backplate

The base of the active backplate is CNC-machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while the top is CNC-machined out of glass-like cast acrylic. Just like on the water block itself, the external enclosure does not have any contact with the coolant. It is machined out of a thick solid piece of aluminum, which is afterward anodized into black. The watertight seal is ensured by high-quality EPDM O-rings.

RGB compatibility

This active backplate boasts a whopping 22 individually addressable D-RGB LEDs that illuminate both the water block’s interior and the terminal itself. It is compatible with all popular RGB Sync technologies from major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow symbol on the 3-pin D-RGB LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB (addressable) motherboard header.

  • These newly developed active backplates require at least one slot above them to be empty as they stand 16.8mm tall from the PCB across the whole GPU.
  • This block is made for NVIDIA Founders Edition RTX 3090 cards. It is not a stand-alone unit and requires an EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 Special Edition water block to pair with.
  • Due to the immense variety of fittings/barbs available on the market, we guarantee compatibility only with EK fittings.
  • This product should NOT be installed with any aluminum Fluid Gaming parts!
  • The use of specifically engineered coolants that contain corrosion, scale, and biological inhibitors is mandatory to prevent damage to your nickel plated water block! EK is offering a selection of such products in the coolants section.
  • Make sure that there is enough clearance for the Active Backplate to fit above the PCIe slot. This Active Backplate requires 17mm clearance above the center of the PCIe slot.
