    EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to officially introduce two additional EK-FC Titan water blocks to cater to the different needs and taste of members of the water cooling community. Looks and port configuration is the only thing that separate these two newcomers from the pack as the cooling engine remained the same. As a result these new products offer the very same excellent thermal- and hydraulic characteristics.

    EK-FC Titan - Nickel (Original CSQ) offers the same original CSQ looks introduced in June 2012. It is therefore compatible with EK-FC Bridge & Link CSQ system multiple cards interconnect, which come in both satin finish Acrylic- as well as black POM Acetal version. The water block itself is compatible with EK-FC Titan Backplate but cannot be interconnected to other EK-FC Titan (using EK-FC Bridge & Link CSQ or EK-FC Terminal system) series water blocks apart from the Original CSQ version. This product comes with the MSRP of 99.95€ (incl. VAT) and is readily available for purcahse through EK Webshop as well as Partner Reseller Network.

    EK-FC Titan XXL Edition incl. Backplate is the extended variant of the original EK-FC Titan - Acetal+Nickel water block which covers the entire lenght of the GeForce GTX Titan circuit board. This product also comes bundled with it's own FC Backplate, very similiar to the EK-FC Titan Backplate - Black. This water block is compatible (G1/4 ports align) with original EK-FC Titan water blocks, multiple water blocks can be interconnected via EK-FC Terminal system or other, 3rd part provided means of interconnectivity. The XXL version comes with MSRP of 139.95€ (incl. VAT) and will be available for purchase by the end of the week through EK Webshop.

    Transparent doesn't look bad even with circles. Too bad the transparent one isn't full cover as well...

    That full-coverage block looks very good. If had 1200$ cash lying around I would be tempted to get a GTX Titan and that block just for some mod project.

    If you can afford a Titan.. you likely have water cooling and likely have a spare change to buy a water block for it.

    but I am willing to bet they don't have a huge production of these being made. even the Titans are a "limited run", right?

    I don't know, but the original WBs are out of stock most of the time, so either they have a very limited production, or, they are selling them as fast as they can get them out of the door :)

    They won't do a Acrylic FC top because they don't want to show all the wasted metal.

    It just covers the whole PCB it does not WC anything else, just the metal may help dissipate some heat from caps thats it, more for the looks.

    Titans are not a LE they are a full production card, I have never heard any news of this.

    .... so they did / are going to be making as many Titans as say 670s or 680s? doubtful... because I remember reading that the 690 were low production too.

    I am not saying LE = limited edition.... I am saying low production = not as many made... still tons to go around but not as many as other models. I will see if I can find the article I read.

    Oh, ok yeah they won't be making tons just due to the fact hardly anyone can buy a $1000 GPU.
