EKWB teases their upcoming RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti water blocks

EK has started to tease their upcoming RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti water block designs, showcasing both Acrylic and Acetal topped offerings which both feature RGB elements. 

At this time, it is unknown whether or not EK plans to release a single water block solution to support Nvidia's entire RTX lineup, much like their Geforce GTX 10-series Founders Edition water block, which supported Nvidia's GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1080, GTX 1080 Ti, GTX Titan X Pascal and GTX Titan Xp graphics cards. Alphacool has already created a water block that supports both Nvidia's RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards, the Eisblock GPX-N 2080/2080 Ti

Unlike EK's previous RGB water block designs, the company's latest prototypes offer RGB illumination from the end of Nvidia's graphics card, with the Acetal version offering an illuminated end block while the Acrylic version emits light around the GPU's acrylic top. Previous RGB illuminated EK water blocks contained LEDs along the base of Acrylic topped graphics card water block, with acetal blocks featuring no RGB support.

EK expects pre-orders for their upcoming RTX series Founders Edition water blocks to be available "soon". The pricing of these new water block designs remains unknown.

Pretty. And if you can afford a 2080Ti then you can afford the water. Can you afford not to? I reckon these will be nice and toasty on air.Quote

Well everyone can afford water, you can just take it from your bathroom or so. But it will most likely damage your hardware, since you most likely have no where to put it in your PC Quote

Prefer their older 980ti/1080ti clear blocks. Just not buying into this rgb on blocks craze.

The lighting needs to be soft and subtle, with a gentle glow. When you can pinpoint the source of each individual LED like in above pictures, it does not look well done. Quite funny though, because NBD and I were recently commenting on how we preferred the EKWB over the alpha cool ones, and then they release... this.

Of course you can turn it off, but whats the point of the extra cost then. Still though, that small EK logo is just class!Quote

I'm not a fan of EK. They're not a "details" company. ALL of their stuff is over-priced. That said, for certain things like full motherboard mono-blocks, they're the only game in town for some boards. The only EK products I would highly recommend are their radiators.Quote
