EK WaterBlocks Ready With GeForce GTX 295 Offering

EK WaterBlocks, a well-known name with computer enthusiasts is ready with its offering for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 dual-GPU graphics accelerator. As with any water-block made for the GeForce 9800 GX2 and GeForce GTX 295, this block consists of two cooling surfaces for each of the two PCBs.

EK WaterBlocks' latest unit (model: EK-FC295 GTX SLI) is a monolithic full-coverage block made of copper and acrylic glass. Each of the cooling surfaces has contact points for the various components of the accelerator. The block is available with a whole range of options with its fittings. It is SLI-capable, meaning that its fittings allow its fluid to be relayed to the next accelerator. The block weighs 1.35 kg (around 3 lbs). It will be available from EK WaterBlocks' store starting tomorrow, priced at 125€ (around US $172.60).

heh, does it grant wishes?

jokes aside 3 pounds seems extremely heavy for any single component of a computer, except the case, and maybe power supply.

The one wish it will gladly fulfill:

"I can haz a big e-peenus?"

It's lighter than the Danger Den block. Blocks for the 9800 GX2/GTX 295 tend to be heavy since they have two copper surfaces.

To be honest if I had a GTX295 I would probably get one though, and not for e-penis. I hear temps on the 295 are horrible, 95c load... :shadedshu... But then I would need water cooling, but if I had a GTX295 I'd probably already have a WC setup. Ah, to dream... :roll:

95C is nothing for a video card. :p Get about 130C, then we're talking lol...
