    EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is preparing a a new line of blocks for the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX based ASUS DirectCU II series graphics cards and ASUS Republic of Gamers Z87 LGA-1150 motherboards:

    ASUS Republic of Gamers Motherboards:
    • ASUS Maximus VI Extreme
    • ASUS Maximus VI Formula
    • ASUS Maximus VI Hero
    • ASUS Maximus VI Gene
    • ASUS Maximus VI Impact

    Graphics cards:
    • ASUS GTX780-DC2-3GD5 GeForce GTX 780 3GB GDDR

    EK Water Blocks will release the water cooling solution for ASUS Maximus VI Hero and Maximus VI Gene motherboards first (ETA July 22nd) with the other motherboards to follow as they appear on the market.

    Full-cover water block for ASUS GTX780-DC2 DirectCU II series graphics cards, which will actively cool the GPU, memory IC as well as VRM, is already in the works and will most likely be released around the same date as the motherboard water blocks.

    ASUS GTX770-DC2-2GD5 DirectCU II series graphics card is already supported by our existing EK-FC680 GTX DCII series water blocks. Nevertheless EK Water Blocks will be releasing a new variant of the water block featuring FC Terminal (like the ones used on EK-FC Titan SE & EK-FC770 GTX water blocks) in the upcoming month.

    Waterblocks for the Mini ITX ROG Impact? There's not a whole lot of room to fit a block on the VRM's and I don't see how they would fir much of anything on the chipset. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

    Perhaps they are making those all in one blocks and VRM blocks ect ect. The CPU blocks already fit so it's probably just the other blocks they are making.

    why would you want to put a block on that 780?! the card and design look great (personal opinion) and if ya was goin to WC a card wouldnt you choose something cheaper or reference?!

    would u rather drive a Race car or a home made russian car ;).

    that producers places different components on the cards, the asus one got custom voltage controller and its own capacitors and better vrm and so. each brand does so to theyr top cards if allowed, and sometimes often secretly and trying to hide it from o mighty nvidia.

    the reference cards doesnt have anything other than nvidia spesified parts

    The Maximus Formula VI does have barbs, but the Maximus Extreme Vi doesn't.
