The EK-FC RTX 2080 Ti Lignum high-performance water block is an aesthetical evolution of the EK-Vector RE water block specially designed for multiple reference design NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards. As with Vector RE, the cooling engine is tweaked for even more performance with an optimized flow pattern. It also offers extended compatibility fitting more reference design based graphics cards.
The founder and owner of EK Water Blocks, Edvard König, has designed a new line of showstopping products – the EK Lignum series.
Mr. König discovered his passion for woodworking at a very young age and began his career in a workshop. That knowledge and enthusiasm ultimately led him to start designing and manufacturing water blocks that we know today. It was only a matter of time when these two paths of his would collide and bring about something truly amazing.
EK Lignum, signature edition of EK liquid cooling products is inspired by Mr. Edvard König’s love for woodwork and modern computer technologies. It is the perfect symbiosis of the oldest natural building material and contemporary high-end cooling solutions. An unparalleled example of how your PC can reflect your lifestyle. EK Lignum and it’s wooden opulence can bring a feeling of comfort and warmth to your home while keeping your PC cool and silent for its maximum possible performance.
EK-FC RTX 2080 Ti Lignum
The water block itself covers the entire PCB length. This sophisticated cooling solution will transform your beefy graphics card into a minimalistic, elegant piece of hardware. The block also features a unique walnut aesthetic cover over the block top and terminals which is handcrafted and made to create a multi-layered relationship between nature and the modern environment. Each waterblock features a unique wood pattern which differs from every other waterblock that is made.
This water block is compatible with all reference design GeForce RTX 2080 Ti based graphics cards, but as always, we recommend that you refer to the EK® Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match.
The water block directly cools the GPU, VRAM and the VRM (voltage regulation module) as cooling liquid is channeled directly over these critical areas. These newly developed water blocks feature a redesigned cooling engine that has a larger footprint compared to the previous generation of EK® Full Cover water blocks. This results in a larger surface area for heat transfer which increases the thermal performance of these water blocks.
The EK-FC Lignum Series water blocks use an Open Split-Flow cooling engine design which proved to be a superior solution for GPU water blocks. It is characterized by low hydraulic flow restriction, which means that it can be used with weaker water pumps, or pumps running on low-speed settings and still achieve top performance. The jet plate and fin structure geometry have been optimized to provide even flow distribution with minimal losses and optimal performances even when used in reversed water flow scenarios.
The base of the block is CNC machined out of nickel-plated copper while the top is CNC machined out of high-quality black POM Acetal covered by Walnut. Sealing is ensured by high-quality EPDM O-Rings. The brass standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for a safe and easy installation procedure.
This block comes with aretention backplate which improves the aesthetics of your graphics cards, but also provides additional passive cooling to the GPU core and circuit board VRM section.
G1/4″ threaded fittings can be used on both sides of the terminal.
The NVIDIA® NVLink is compatible with this water block.
