Does the RGB lighting show on the back side of the block, or just the front around the plexi?

Can you post a picture of the RGB lighting on both the front and back?

Thanks

My block is the one sided kind, the backplate is solid and the RGB that would shine through the back side logo is now blocked, the 2 sided block would be clear  in that area and shine through, I was not able to reach a header on my system without taking out a radiator if it is off for now , there might be a header on the end of the card but they are hard to reach inside of the acetal end they put on the block , it makes the block look good but it is a PITA to get to the connectors on the end of the card, took me a good few minutes just to hook up the power, lol

Clock 2040  - Average clock maintained was 2012 97.8 % stable
GPU temp 48 average
Hot spot 60.1 highest reading
mem junction 49
Perf cap VRel
mem1 41
mem2 40
mem3 40
pwr 1 41
pwr2 41
pwr3 41
pwr3 41
pwr4 43
pwr5 40
so 100% pump from 60 % pump can be seen but is it worth it for a daily driver?
Benching, it can get you to the next tier but wear and tear on your components ?
card TPD was about 10 w lower too, not sure why


Hello kraade, I want to ask are those temp with your side panels on or off? And do you have core/vram temp data during gaming, when both CPU and GPU are under load?

Just so you know It's still possible to knock 100w out of these cards for some cool running still...
So I ran a battery of benchmarks back to back and then ran Stress tests while hot and  then did about an hour of iracing and it followed my test results really closely.
 Z690 Tomahawk I9 12900K 5.2 PC & 4.0 EC  1.34V  DDR4 4400 1.5v
 
undervolt - 925mv @ clk 2065 and +712mem 322 watt average (PR-1484)  VS OC 106 PT, +35v,  +130clk , + 680 mem 448 watt average (PR15386)
 
the undervolt maintains 2040 mhz under load and the OC is 2165-2130 mhz, it varies
UV : TSE Stress test 20 loop run water temp 28 starting ambient room 23  
1 EK 360 SE 1 Ex 360 PE , 3 x Vardar 120 on SE and 3 Noctua AF12 on PE @60% Pushing
 
UV :  C    | OC : C
GPU 44        52
HS   55        63
MTJ  50       53
PWR 74%    98%
GP2  39       45
M1   41       45
m2   39      46
M3   39      44
p1    39      44
P2    39     45
P3    38      45
P4    42      48
P5    38     44
FPS # are only 1-2.5 fps different at 4K
Anyone know where P4 is because it would look like my pads on this part could use improvement. other than that , looks good to me , BUT>>>
The biggest difference is how much heat is dumped into the room, the room gets noticeably hotter with the OC
If I put in the 3rd Rad , my water temps should be lower but the heat dumped into the room could be more because of the efficacy.

Heat in = heat out

Doesn't matter how you get there. Air cooler, 1 rad, 10 rads, doesn't matter in regards to room temp.

Yes sir, Office is 14.5x14.5x 8.5 feet BOX with a 42" celling fan and one 6x12" register from the AC in the roof, 'Just surprising how much different 318w UV vs 412w Stock vs 480w OC will do to the room over time.
a 1 hour session on stock clocks can get you sweating, OC probably only 30 min , UV < 2 hours

Yeah, I checked that this morning. Their website now indicates middle of August delivery date with DHL Express.

Right. I'm guessing that's for new orders, not already pre-ordered. At least I'm hoping...
 


I ordered mine yesterday 08-14-2022, is expected to become available on August 19, 2022. Estimated Delivery Date: 26 August 2022.
 

Looks like EK does have new stock coming off the line every few weeks for this item.

Wow, nice temps! UnderVolt really helps the temp it seems!  I will try that when my block arrives tomorrow.

I'm curious to find out if you really get it on 8/26.
However, I ordered the full kit with the backplate and that is probably the difference.
 
I ordered mine on 8/3, to be available 8/10 & delivery 8/18.
Then it started to be delayed:
- "available" 8/17, delivery 8/24
then thursday I got another delay
- "back in stock" 8/24 & delivery 8/31

For anyone who doesn't want to wait for EK restocks, PPC currently still has one regular block and one with ABP in stock!

I think you may have a great idea there. They even have good instructions for beginners like me.
I need to research others' comments and experiences with this company.
 
Thanks for the link.

Hello frankd3,
 
I received my EK Quantum Vector2 today,.. 8-26-22 at 11:00AM. 
 
The box it comes in is huge.
 
 
EK delivered on time. That's nice,.. I just started building my Z690 Dark Kingpin system this morning.
 
The bench is a mess,..

That's fantastic. Congratulations.
Looks good and I'm envious.
 
3 days ago they delayed mine again to September 9. I was thinking they wouldn't get anymore for a long time and I was worried they might be having quality issues.
So I cancelled. I guess I screwed up
I won't be in a position to start my next build for a while so I'll think about re-ordering while I use the 3090Ti in air cooled mode.
I wanted the Z690 Classified and the weekend I went to order EVGA sold out. I feel like forces are working against me
 
Again, congrats!

Performance PC just dropped another batch on Tuesday,.. and they have 4 in stock. You can get three day shipping for $30.00 or free 7-day shipping. https://www.performance-pcs.com/water-cooling/water-blocks/water-blocks-vga/ek-quantum-vector-ftw3-rtx-3090-ti-d-rgb-nickel-plexi.html
 
You might also consider pulling the trigger on the Dark Kingpin,.. I know you wanted the Z690 Classified,..
 
Great deal on the Z690 Dark Kingpin right now, and with DDR5 currently the two DIMM boards work vary well vs the four DIMM,..

 That issue with 4 DDR dimms is well documented. I was planning on only 2.
Others have encouraged me to go with the Dark Kingpin. I downloaded the manual and will read it over the weekend and make my decision before EVGA shows up for work on Monday.
 
I decided to re-order the block. But this time I'm going with the one you got, without the active backplate. I realize that this card doesn't really need it. So it looks like my cancellation was a good idea after all.
I ordered from EKWB again. I know PPCS is a good company but I'll bet they ship by UPS. UPS in my area destroys the shipping packages. When I ordered my EVGA psu I knew it was delivered when the jerk dropped it on the concrete outside my front door and it echoed through the building. I've seen the guy's face from time to time and he looks like he going to go postal any minute. Sorry, too much info.
EK uses DHL which in my experience is the very best. All my previous shipments from EK have arrived in perfect condition.

a bit of advice, I don't know if it will work but someone might want to try it: P4 was my highest temperature area
I figured out where P4 is, Its where the smallest pad is located upper right (the lone Inductor) when looking at the card with the pcie slot closest to you, instructions are to cut a really small pad there, but I bet if you had a little bit of putty and cover the components on both sides of the LR22 and cut a slightly larger pad; it might help,  It is only 3-4 C different and not out of hand by any means , but it might help to even it out in that area.

I think Braegnok was referring to the fact that boards with only 2 mem slots will allow higher DDR5 clocks.  Goes beyond the normal issue of plugging in 2 sticks vs 4 in a 4 slot board.  EVGA shows 6400+ for the classified, but many 4 dimm boards struggle to just run 6400 xmp on 2 sticks.

I think Braegnok was referring to the fact that boards with only 2 mem slots will allow higher DDR5 clocks.  Goes beyond the normal issue of plugging in 2 sticks vs 4 in a 4 slot board.  EVGA shows 6400+ for the classified, but many 4 dimm boards struggle to just run 6400 xmp on 2 sticks.


Wow. I hadn't heard that. Thanks for clarifying. Another point for the Dark.

That issue with 4 DDR dimms is well documented. I was planning on only 2.
Others have encouraged me to go with the Dark Kingpin. I downloaded the manual and will read it over the weekend and make my decision before EVGA shows up for work on Monday.
 
I decided to re-order the block. But this time I'm going with the one you got, without the active backplate. I realize that this card doesn't really need it. So it looks like my cancellation was a good idea after all.
I ordered from EKWB again. I know PPCS is a good company but I'll bet they ship by UPS. UPS in my area destroys the shipping packages. When I ordered my EVGA psu I knew it was delivered when the jerk dropped it on the concrete outside my front door and it echoed through the building.

I have GSkill 6400mhz memory that runs just fine on my Classified motherboard with using the XMP settings without any problems. This is the memory I use with the latest bios.

Hello frankd3,
 
I received my EK Quantum Vector2 today,.. 8-26-22 at 11:00AM. 
 
The box it comes in is huge.
 

 
Braegnok....how do you find the Kingpin Board vs the Apex Board ?
 
I have been tempted to pull the trigger on a 3090Ti w new EK Block ....but after a great gaming session last night of FC6 I cant justify the upgrade over a 3080Ti, especially with 40xx around the corner...tempting for sure....but no can do ;)
That's fantastic. Congratulations.
Looks good and I'm envious.
 
3 days ago they delayed mine again to September 9. I was thinking they wouldn't get anymore for a long time and I was worried they might be having quality issues.
So I cancelled. I guess I screwed up
I won't be in a position to start my next build for a while so I'll think about re-ordering while I use the 3090Ti in air cooled mode.
I wanted the Z690 Classified and the weekend I went to order EVGA sold out. I feel like forces are working against me
 
Again, congrats!



Thanks,..
 
Performance PC just dropped another batch on Tuesday,.. and they have 4 in stock. You can get three day shipping for $30.00 or free 7-day shipping. https://www.performance-pcs.com/water-cooling/water-blocks/water-blocks-vga/ek-quantum-vector-ftw3-rtx-3090-ti-d-rgb-nickel-plexi.html
 
You might also consider pulling the trigger on the Dark Kingpin,.. I know you wanted the Z690 Classified,..
 
Great deal on the Z690 Dark Kingpin right now, and with DDR5 currently the two DIMM boards work vary well vs the four DIMM,..

Hello rj,
 
Actually I haven't had time to finish the water cooling,.. temporarily going with dual MORA 420 Pro systems with 8x200mm fans, two D5 pumps.
 
I know the Z690 Dark does not have enough onboard sensors, water temp sensors, fan and pump headers for the test system I'm building. 
 
I'm setting up the Aquaero 6 LT controller, and EK-Quantum Lumen 7" LCD for graphics tonight. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-lumen-7-lcd-black
 
Installed the EK-Quantum Delta2 TEC block yesterday. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-delta2-tec-d-rgb-full-nickel
 
I need several water temp sensors, fan controllers for the TEC block software. 
 
The CPU will temporarily have it's own 420 pro, and the RAM & GPU will be on the second 420 pro,.. while I test the Delta2 TEC block with i9-12900K.
 
After a few days testing the Delta2 block and learning the software I plan on pulling it. I'll use it on another build down the road with i5-13600K.
 
I'll be going with i9-12900KS, the EK-Quantum Velocity2 block,.. and single MORA for the new Z690 Dark Kingpin system.  
 
I should have everything dialed in, and all the software figured out by next week,.. still have a ton of wiring to do. 
 
The EVGA BIOS is also going to be a learning curve for me, as I have only ran a few EVGA boards in the past,.. going to be a fun project.

What size thermal pads did you use with the waterblock?

Hello gamelover,
 
No pads.
 
I use KPx thermal compound. https://kingpincooling.com/products/kpx-high-preformance-thermal-compound-3g
 
The Delta2 waterblock installs with a Backplate Gasket, EPDM Sticker and Backplate, 4-M4 threaded stubs.
 
Applying the thermal compound is similar to most other waterblocks, no pads used. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/EK-IM/EK-IM-3831109859612.pdf

Braegnok,
 
You are so far out of (above) my league that it makes me chuckle. That is a cooling unit your using for the cpu!
And that lumen 7 is awful tempting. I've been looking at it since I got the announcement. But again, something not yet in stock.
 
Have you considered starting a thread in Mods-Rigs?
https://forums.evga.com/MODS-RIGS-f33.aspx
I for one would love to follow your build notes and learn from it.
And of course post lots of pictures, please.
Then you could post the link in your sig so everybody could check it out.
 
Just a thought.
 
Frank

EK block check up, so I was just verifying a few settings and ran a TS run at 2205mhz- 2175mhz average, +725 mem (1403) for a 22363, and never hit reset. Tweeked some Voltage on the CPU for about 77 degrees-ish at a 28388 Cinebench. Well my adhd-self decides to run about and hour and a half live practice at Darlington , I get out and glimpse over and see my OC is still active and I look at my temp trace, 39c flat line the whole time , mem is in the low 30s. Granted I cap framrate at 145 and medium settings on things outside the track but all the other settings are maxed out , still it sits around 68% gpu utilization at 7680x1440@144hz. But still very impressed by the temperatures on this thing.
