EK Announces Full Compatibility with GeForce RTX 40 SUPER Series Graphics Cards
EK, the pioneer in premium liquid cooling, is pleased to announce full compatibility with the newly launched GeForce RTX 40 SUPER series graphics cards powered by NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture. To accommodate the release of the new GPU and the complete lists of upcoming graphics cards from vendor partners, EK has updated the water block compatibility lists on the EK Compatibility Configurator and EK Custom Loop Configurator database.
The RTX 4080 SUPER, which offers competitive pricing and a lower entry point for PC users, is particularly appealing to custom-loop liquid cooling enthusiasts. It will be available for sale on January 31 with a price of $999 (MSRP), $200 less than the original RTX 4080. With the introduction of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, numerous new GPUs have been announced by custom board partners. EK recommends using the EK Compatibility Configurator or EK Custom Loop Configurator tools to find a suitable water block. The compatibility database is continuously updated with newly released hardware from various manufacturers, with compatible graphics cards being added to the list daily.
