    Not to be out-gunned by Aqua Computer, Ljubljana-based EK Water Blocks has also announced its own liquid cooling offerings for NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680 graphics card. The EK-FC680 GTX series full cover (GPU, RAM, VRM) water blocks are designed to fit standard GTX 680 (and 670 apparently) cards and feature G1/4" threaded fittings can be used on both sides.

    There are four blocks listed by EK, two priced at €84.95 that have an electrolytic copper base, and two with an electroless nickel (EN) plated base which cost €94.96. The blocks can have either a POM Acetal or an acrylic cover.

    Sexy. I like the way how it extends over the VRM section.

    Yeah, it looks ok in double slot cooler since it's hidden. But exposed like this really looks awful.

    That power connector looks like a chimney ready to blow out smoke :roll:

    On a serious note, I like the nickel plated better than this one.

    double stack would be a little ok if it had like a mirror finish or something.. but no.. it had to look like some piece taken from your local hardware store

    Well, then replace the double stacked connector with a single, and put another 6-pin in the empty space on the PCB :p
