NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 is known for its size and ability to generate heat. To combat these, ASUS has teamed up with popular water block manufacturer EKWB for the ASUS EKWB GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. The new design shrinks the powerful GPU down to a single-slot card and incorporates a water block. It is listed for $1749.99 at Microcenter.

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.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
