EK Releases Water Block for EVGA's GeForce GTX 680 FTW

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium performance PC water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to present the fourth GeForce GTX 680 water block in the lineup, the EK-FC680 GTX FTW. EK-FC680 GTX FTW is a high performance full-cover water block for engineered specifically for EVGA design GeForce GTX 680 FTW series graphics cards.

This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC680 GTX FTW water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.


Base is made of nickel plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal material or satin finish Acrylic material (depending on the variant). The sealing is ensured by quality rubber gaskets. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure. Block is mounted with enclosed M3x4 DIN7985 screws and plastic washers.

Up to four EK-FC680 GTX FTW series water blocks can be interconnected with EK-FC Bridge & Link system. Additionally this water block lines up with EK-FC680 GTX(+) series water blocks thus even further expanding users choice of graphics cards. The correct connection link for this water block is already enclosed with the product.

Enclosed:
- EK-FC680 FTW series water block
- EK-FC Link
- mounting mechanism with screw-in brass standoffs
- thermal pads

The EK-FC680 GTX FTW series water blocks are readily available for purchase through EK Webshop and our Partner Reseller Network.

I've got an EK block on my card and the circles are fine. Makes the card look less 'plain'. However, I stand by the assertion that the stacked power connectors make the water block look bad. I thought the FTW had side by side connectors?

there's no need for a waterblock since nvidia made evga chop the balls off this card for most people

I like that it can be half black and half nickle plated, but all those circles :wtf:, not for me.

I think you are talking about the classified, not the FTW, this was never meant to have unlocked voltage.

I agree though, voltage locked watercooled cards are a joke, an aftermarket air cooling solution is almost the same.

I agree I wish these GPU makers would put the power connector on the bottom right side and have the power plug in from the right side.
Would make cables plug in so easy.
Also if your going to make a WB with a see through top should make it more clear and not a frosted.

And have the power connector block, SATA, USB or some other random header?

Sounds like your MB is poorly setup , It would not make sense for a company to put those where they know a GPU's butt will be.


I'm running crossfire and the only thing blocked is the CMOS battery.

When space isn't a premium like the full size ATX board you're using as an example that would be true, but on smaller boards, ports and headers do often populate that area even on well made boards.
