EK Releases their RTX Vector Series of ASUS ROG Strix Water Blocks

EK has officially released new Vector series water blocks for ASUS' ROG Strix series of Geforce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080 and 2070 graphics cards, offering ASUS Aura Sync compatible 4-pin RGB LED lighting, dedicated Core VRM and VRAM cooling channels and the company's latest cooling engine, which maximises the block's surface area for GPU core cooling. 

Each of these blocks is dedicated to a specific GPU PCB design, which means that these blocks are not cross-compatible with other RTX series graphics cards. This level of specificity allows EK to deliver optimal cooling performance for each GPU model, ensuring that their designs can maintain high overclocks for each of ASUS's RTX ROG offerings.   

EK's new Vector series water blocks are made from nickel plated copper and come with a high-quality acrylic top and EPDM O-rings to ensure a long-lasting seal. Compatible backplates for these GPU water blocks are also available, adding extra passive cooling potential into the mix, shipping in black anodised and nickel plated variants.

Someone with experience of these block tear downs explain why they have that plate across the block?

There is a practical reason but I have never see it uncovered to see why it is necessary. Aesthetically it looks terrible.Quote

Just thinking is it because drilling that many holes across the block in close proximity would or possible increase stress on the plexi they use, so better to use a plate, just a thoughtQuote

actually I dont think the three extra ones in the centre will cause additional stress. I was thinking more along the lines if its possible the nickel block is raised higher in areas due to caps, and then it would make the plexi thickness thinner thus prone to more stress. Could be wrong though, but its been a curiosity of mine for a long time. I have always used reference blocks.Quote
