Let it Flow

The ASUS EKWB GeForce RTX™ 3090 cards are the result of collaborative engineering efforts between ASUS and EK®. ASUS Auto-Extreme Technology, along with a metal backplate and customized steel mounting bracket, create a durable foundation for EK®’s full-coverage water block. The entire package takes up just a single slot, bringing the tangible benefits of water cooling to small form factor builds, heavyweight workstations, and showcase rigs.


Auto-Extreme Technology - Precision automated manufacturing

Auto-Extreme Technology is an automated manufacturing process that sets new standards in the industry by allowing all soldering to be completed in a single pass. This reduces thermal strain on components and avoids the use of harsh cleaning chemicals, resulting in less environmental impact, lower manufacturing power consumption, and a more reliable product overall.


High-performance Water Block - Go with the flow

A central inlet split-flow cooling engine designed by EK® channels coolant over the GPU and other key components without restricting flow. The design efficiently dispatches large thermal loads and saves prized slot space.


Remarkable Construction - A feat of engineering

A nickel-plated copper cold plate prevents oxidation and ensures efficient heat transfer. On top, the cast acrylic cover makes a spectacle of coolant as it courses over the GPU and other components. High-quality EPDM O-rings and brass standoffs are arranged throughout to ensure proper sealing and an easy installation.


Aura Sync - Outshine the competition
The ASUS EKWB graphics card features an addressable RGB strip that spans the length of the block. Armoury Crate software allows complete control and customization of the lighting colors and effects. Build with other Aura Sync components to enable uniform lighting across your entire setup.

Protective Backplate - That’s so metal!

The PCB is reinforced by an aluminum backplate that adds structural rigidity, helping to prevent flex and protect components and trace pathways from damage.


Stainless Steel Bracket - Steel yourself

The mounting bracket of the ASUS EKWB has been beefed up with 304 Stainless Steel that’s harder and more resistant to corrosion.


Single-slot Design - So much room

A compact single-slot design increases compatibility with other PCIe peripherals and even allows multiple ASUS EKWB cards to be stacked in a system.


NVIDIA AMPERE ARCHITECTURE

The all-new NVIDIA Ampere architecture delivers the ultimate play, featuring advanced 2nd generation Ray Tracing Cores and 3rd generation Tensor Cores with greater throughput.


RTX. IT’S ON.

Experience today’s biggest blockbusters like never before with the visual fidelity of real-time ray tracing and the ultimate performance of AI-powered DLSS.

A Powerhouse Card If You've Got The Dollars To Spare

Would recommend - yes

I managed to get this card in mid-February 2021 in the middle of the global shortage of graphics cards instead of having to wait for my (previously) preferred card and watercooling block for a number of months. This card happened to be in stock for $500 less than other retailers at the time and, as I was planning to put the card into a water-cooled build, this being fitted with an EKWB water-block from the factory was another major consideration in the purchase decision. Let's get the disappointment out of the way: For a $3500 graphics card, the supplied bundle is very light - no games were included, and coupled with the price and performance delta between the this and the 3080/3080ti really highlights that 3090s in general are not value-for-money purchases for gamers. However, there are still a lot of positives (for me at least): - Pre-installed EKWB water-block means I don't have to do it myself and risk warranty issues (EKWB are a trusted brand in the water-cooling space which provides additional peace of mind) - The performance is leaps and bounds better than the 1080ti that I replaced - I was able to pick it up the same-day I bought it instead of having to wait months like many others - The single-slot design works well in a modded vertical mount in my cramped, triple-rad Lian Li O11D Mini - Despite an advertised boost clock of 1725MHz, I'm getting 1950MHz with minor tweaks and I suspect that there's a lot of performance headroom here at 3440x1440 - With a noise-optimised fan profile, the loop is at ~32C with ambient temps ~24C - and after a couple of hours of gaming my loop temp peaks at ~40-42C.
