EK TUF Water Blocks

EK has launched the EK-Quantum Vector TUF Water Blocks for the ASUS TUF RX 6800 and 6900 GPUs. The EK-Quantum Vector TUF water blocks specifically made for the ASUS TUF AMD Radeon RX 6800/6900 Series graphics cards.

The 2nd generation EK-Quantum Vector water blocks take advantage of an Open Split-Flow cooling engine design. The main feature of the cooling engine design is the low hydraulic flow restriction which allows the block to function with weaker pumps or at lower settings.

The block is CNC-machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top plate is either glass-like cast Acrylic or durable black POM acetal. The jet plate and the fin structure geometry have been optimized to offer the best performance with great flow distribution with any coolant flow orientation.

EK uses high-quality EPDM O-rings in the water blocks to make sure that there are no leaks ever in the water block under normal circumstances. Brass standoffs are pre-installed for easy installation and the end-piece houses a D-RGB LED strip that lights up the entire water block. It features a total of 9 individually addressable RGB LEDs and a LED-lit terminal.

EK recommends that you pair this with an aluminum retention backplate. This improves the look of your card as well as adding some passive cooling for the GPU, the VRM, and the memory. The backplate comes in both anodized black or nickel-plated color schemes.

The EK -Quantum Vector TUF water blocks have been specially designed for ASUS TUF’s RX 6800 and 6900 XT graphics cards. The supported models are the TUF-RX6800-O16G-GAMING, TUF-RX6800XT-O16G-GAMING, and TUF-RX6900XT-O16G-GAMING.

Both the nickel-plexi and nickel-acetal are available for preorder for $184.99 and $179.99, respectively. The nickel and anodized black backplate are available for preorder for $52.89 and $45.99, respectively. Both waterblocks and the backplates will be available sometime in May.
