Evolved GPU Cooling

The new Vector² EVO water blocks effortlessly solve the issue of excessive heat generation during high load on the GPU. These water blocks for the Sapphire® NITRO+ and Pulse Radeon™ RX 7900 XT & XTX GPUs cool the graphics compute die, voltage regulation module, voltage controllers, VRAM, and the MCDs.

Sapphire Nitro and Pulse RX 7900 XT and XTX GPU water block

The main upgrades of the EVO water blocks include:  

  • A new stand-out end-piece design to shorten the water block
  • A custom-made inner O-ring that prevents coolant from seeping between the channels and improves flow across the entire water block, focusing more coolant through the cooling fins
  • New, high-performance pre-cut thermal pads
  • A better-performing thermal paste

 

What differs on Radeon Vector² water blocks is that the cooling engine has been rotated by 90°, so the fins are perpendicular to the die. For optimal delta, the coolant flows over the graphics core die first, and the memory cache die after. Consequently, all MCDs get the same temperature coolant.

New Features of Vector² EVO GPU Water Blocks

Focused Coolant Flow for Improved Performance

Something that wildefinitely be visible at first glance is the increased number of O-rings inside the water block. This feature prevents coolant from seeping between thmicro-spaces of the acrylic top and the copper cold plate. The result is a focused coolant flow that ensures coolant is following its predicted path, including the microfinsresulting in improved cooling performance.

New Pre-Cut Thermal Pads

The new high-performance thermal pads have shown excellent results in thermal conductivity and squishiness, which is equally essential for good thermal transfer and ease of use during installation. They are pre-cut width-wisesignificantly reducing the effort of installing them on your GPU, as they only require cutting in one dimensionThis also minimizes the likelihood of users not cutting them properly, thus avoiding overhangs that could lead to poor contact between the GPU water block and the GPU. 

Upgraded Stand-Out Piece

The well-recognized and unique stand-out piece is now smaller and more seamlessly integrated into the water block to increase compatibility by reducing the length of the GPU enclosure by 19mm.

New Thermal Paste

Engineered for efficiency and reliability, the EK-Loop Thermal Paste NGP features very low thermal impedance, ensuring effective heat conductivity and enhanced system performance. Its optimized formula offers excellent crumpling resistance and long-term stability.

Backplate Included

The package contains the following:

  • A high-performance GPU Vector² EVO water block
  • Premium quality CNC-machined backplate
  • Mounting mechanism
  • EK-Loop Thermal Paste NGP
  • Thermal pads
  • GPU and PCI power cable release tool

A black, full-coverage backplate is included with the GPU water block. Its distinctive L-shaped profile encloses the entire GPU while, at the same time, increasing the cooling surface area. The backplate also comes with pre-installed captive backplate screws that simplify the installation. They ensure that the correct size screw is always used where needed.

Technical and Visual Master Piece

The look of the Vector² EVO water blocks is dominated by minimalistic straight lines and a modern aesthetic. A 10mm thick copper cold plate is used for all Vector² EVO GPU water blocks. D-RGB Lighting is deployed on the longest edge of the water block for improved fidelity and brightness from every viewing angle. The LED PCB is concealed inside a clean aluminum extrusion.

EK-Matrix7 Support - For Easier Loop Assembly and Straight Lines

Matrix7 standardizes the dimensions of the products, including the port position and spacing, making liquid cooling loop assembly more intuitive and easier. EK-Quantum Vector² GPU cooling enclosures follow the EK-Matrix7 standard, seamlessly integrating with EK-Quantum Reflection² distribution plates. This brings compatibility with the EK vertical GPU mount l perfect alignment of ports in both horizontal and vertical positions, meaning less time used for planning of the loop, bending tubes, and the end result will still be an epic build.

We recommend you refer to the EK Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match of this water block.

Vector² EVO Cooling Engine - For Even Better Cooling of the GPU

The Vector² EVO water block actively cools the GCD, VRAM, power stages, inductors, voltage controllers, and MCDs. Passively, through the backplate, the PCB hotspots on the backside of the GPU core, VRAM, and the VRM (voltage regulation module). The Vector² EVO cooling engine features additional small tweaks to the cooling engine to further increase cooling power. 

The implemented Vector² EVO cooling engine uses a novel 3D machined acrylic insert to improve flow distribution and thermal performance. This new cooling engine is based on an Open Split-Flow design, but the asymmetric shape of the jet insert helps distribute an even flow between the first and last copper fins. The fin structure geometry has been optimized to provide even flow distribution with minimal losses and optimal performances even when used in reversed water flow scenarios. It is also characterized by low hydraulic flow restriction, meaning it can be used with weaker water pumps or pumps running on low-speed settings and still achieve top performance.

Premium Materials and Clever Engineering for Longevity and Top Performance

All Vector² GPU water blocks use a thick 10mm copper coldplate with an acetal terminal attached directly to it to create a robust assembly. Tactile magnetic covers are used to conceal the terminal screws, which allows rotation of the branding when the GPU is inverted in the case.

The cold plate is CNC-machined out of high-quality, pure electrolytic copper which is then nickel-plated, while its top is CNC-machined out of glass-like cast acrylic. The black anodized backplate has a new L-shaped profile that touches the base of the water block and encloses the entire GPU while increasing the cooling surface leading to even better performance.

Included Backplate

Captive backplate screws are added to the backplate. They simplify installation, ensuring the correct length is always used where it is needed to avoid any user error or second-guessing.

The backplate improves the overall aesthetics of your graphics cards and also provides additional passive cooling for the backside of the printed circuit board VRM, core, and VRAM sections.

Rotatable Magnetic Covers

Sleek magnetic covers are used to conceal the terminal screws, which allows rotation of the branding when the GPU water block enclosures are inverted in the case or being used on a vertical GPU mount.

Addressable D-RGB Compatibility

Addressable D-RGB LED lighting is deployed on the longest edge of the water block for improved uniformity and brightness. The PCB and diodes are concealed inside a clean aluminum extrusion. The individually addressable RGB LED is compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 3-pin D-RGB LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB (addressable) header (Pinout: +5V | Data | Blocked | Ground).
