    EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear provider, is currently working on a Full-Cover (FC) water block for nVidia reference design GeForce GTX 660 graphics cards based on the GK106 core.

    The upcoming EK-FC660 GTX for nVidia reference design GeForce GTX 660 graphic cards will directly cool the GK106 GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water will flow directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC660 GTX water block will features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.

    This water block will most likely be released in two versions - Nickel Plexi and Nickel Acetal. Please note that this water block will not be compatible with GeForce GTX 660 Ti series graphics cards based on GK104 GPU core. These cards are already covered by our EK-FC670 GTX as well as EK-FC670 GTX DCII series water blocks.

    Expected release date is 15th of December with MSRP of 80.95€ and 86.95 (incl. VAT) respectively.

    How about Gigabyte's Windforce? Also a very popular-close to reference price-version

    Would people paying the price for gpu watercooling really use it on something as midrange as a 660?

    I can see this card having a place in an enthusiast HTPC.

    I'm disappointed, they should make one on a GT 610, also make one for sound cards too.

    The pic in the OP is a GTX660 graphics card. It looks like a desktop graphics card (funnily enough), and is very, very similar in design to pretty much every mid-range Nvidia card since the GTX460.
