This thread is for discussing the EK-Quantum Vector FTW3 waterblock. I understand another thread exist here
, where it seems to have been resolved. This discussion will be dedicated to all things in regards to the EK waterblock.
- Share photos of your build
- Share performance metrics (temperatures, OC gains over air, etc)
- Share any advice you may have with the install
- Feel free to ask questions about the waterblock
Important: As mentioned above, there was a problem with the Revision 1 of this waterblock. Around the mounting holes, there exist components that are very close to the holes. It is highly advised you get these three new standoffs to avoid any shorting issues
EK has revised their waterblock and as of mid-June and after, you should have a waterblock that has three smaller standoffs that will avoid touching these components. To whomever took these photos, please let me know so I can give you the credit. Thank you.
Edit: Credit to Ineedgfx for taking the pictures.
You will be replacing these three screws here
If you have a revision 1 version of these standoffs, you can contact EK and they will send you three new standoffs for free. Make sure to also send your invoice. email@example.com
If you need to service the block and youre wondering what torque value to aim for so you don't crack the Plexi, read EG1122 post below
For those of you that may need to disassemble the block to clean it out, the appropriate torque for the screws holding the Plexi to the cold plate is 0.6Nm (about 5.31 in/lb). I got this information directly from EK support.
