EK Launches Quantum Vector Founders Edition RTX 3080 and 3090 Backplates

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is launching separate backplates for the Special Edition high-performance GPU water blocks that were made for the NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX™ 3080 and 3090 Founders Edition graphics cards. The EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3080 and 3090 Backplates are available stand-alone due to many requests by users who wanted to make their blocks in one color instead of having a contrasting silver backplate on a black version of the water block and vice-versa.

EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3080 Backplate
This backplate provides additional passive cooling for the GPU core and the backside of the printed circuit board VRM section. Due to the small size of the card and the block itself, the ribbed backplate boasts an increased surface area for additional passive cooling power.

It comes in anodized aluminum with a silver or black finish. The silver version is intended for the silver EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3080 water block, to make it an all-around silver enclosure, just as the black backplate is intended for the black EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3080 water block. By replacing the stock backplate with one of a different color, you get a truly monochromatic look.

 

 

EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 Backplate
This backplate provides additional passive cooling for the GPU core, the rear-mounted VRAM, and the backside of the printed circuit board VRM section. The ribbed backplate offers an increased surface area for additional passive cooling power to compensate for the small size of the card and block itself. This is a hybrid backplate that combines active and passive cooling. The “active” cooling part is achieved through a section of the backplate contacting the coldplate, which is then directly cooled by the liquid.

The silver version is intended for the silver version of the EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 water block, to make it an all-around silver enclosure, just as the black backplate is intended for the black version of the EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3090 water block. By replacing the stock backplate with one of different color, you get a truly monochromatic look.

The EK-Quantum Vector FE RTX 3080 and 3090 Backplates are made in Slovenia, Europe, and are available for order through the EK Webshop and dedicated reseller network.
