EK Releases MSI GTX 970 Gaming Water Block

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce a new Full-Cover water block, designed and engineered specificaly for MSI Gaming 4G series NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 graphics cards - the EK-FC970 GTX TF5.

EK-FC970 GTX TF5 - with TF5 standing as Twin Frozr V (5) abbrevation - is a high-performance Full-Cover water block, co-developed with MSI engineering team. The cooler actively cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks.

New EKWB Water Block Available for GIGABYTE X99 Motherboards

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards is proud to present a series of new liquid cooling solutions made by EK Water Blocks. The Slovenia based liquid cooler manufacturer announced earlier this month a new series of motherboard water cooling solutions especially designed for the GIGABYTE X99 series Intel Core i7 LGA-2011-3 socket motherboards.

The EK-FB KIT GA X99 is a complete water cooling solution, made with a base of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal or acrylic glass material (depending on the variant). Tailor designed for GIGABYTE X99 series motherboards, the coolers consist of two separate water blocks; one water block directly cools the Intel X99 chip while the other takes care of the power regulation area.

EK Introduces Short Type GeForce GTX 970 Water Block

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce a new Full-Cover water block for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 series graphics cards, powered by the GM204-200 Maxwell generation GPU.

EK-FC970 GTX is a high-performance Full-Cover water block which directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks.

EK Tonga Pro Full-Cover WaterBlock Starts Shipping

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce a new Full-Cover water block for reference design AMD Radeon R9 285 series graphics cards, powered by Tonga Pro GPU.

EVGA Shows off 2-slot Air Cooled GeForce GTX TITAN-Z and HydroCopper

EVGA showed off its liquid-cooling ready GeForce GTX TITAN-Z dual-GPU graphics card, ahead of its market availability. The card combines an NVIDIA reference PCB with a full-coverage water-block designed for EVGA, by EK Water Blocks. The block is custom in that it features a custom cooler shroud over the EK-FC Titan Z "clear" acrylic variant. It also comes with a 2-slot rear I/O bracket. The card comes with a lofty factory-overclock, of 758 MHz core (compared to 705 MHz reference), 941 MHz GPU Boost (876 MHz reference), and an untouched 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory.

In addition, EVGA showed off the industry's first custom-design, air-cooled GeForce GTX TITAN-Z graphics card. The unnamed card features the company's next-generation ACX TITAN-Z 2-slot air-cooler, which features two aluminium fin stacks cooling each of the two GPUs, ventilated by 100 mm fans. EVGA didn't finalize the card's clock speeds, or even the product, for that matter. It depends on if NVIDIA allows it to launch custom-design, air-cooled GTX TITAN-Z.

Galaxy Also Unveils GTX 780 Ti HOF V20

In addition to a redesigned, air-cooled GTX 780 Ti HOF, Galaxy also unveiled the GTX 780 Ti HOF V20. The card is ready for liquid-cooling, and features a factory-fitted full-coverage water-block by EK Water Blocks. It also features a brand new, milky white PCB with a powerful 12-phase VRM that draws power from three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, dual-BIOS, and an easy BIOS toggle switch.

EKWB Unveils EK-FC R9-295X2 for Radeon R9 295X2

EK Water Blocks unveiled the first pictures of its full-coverage water block for AMD Radeon R9 295X2. It takes a meaty block to cool the 500-Watt dual-GPU monstrosity, which is also the fastest graphics card money can buy. The EK-FC R9-295X2 from EK is one of the few full-cover blocks that feature coolant channels that actually span the entire obverse length of the card. The channel is designed in a way that coolant is distributed uniformly to both the GPU systems, their neighboring memory, and the central portion of the card, housing its feisty VRM and PCIe bridge chip. The block comes in two variants, one with clear acrylic top over the two GPUs, with an aluminum central top; and one with opaque acetal top instead of clear acrylic. The two blocks come in two further variants, clear copper and nickel-plated copper block material. To top it all off, EK appears to either be bundling, or separately selling a single-slot expansion bracket for the card (a carryover from its HD 7990 block).

PowerColor Radeon R9 290X LCS Pictured

AMD's Radeon R9 290X is a great chip with sub-par reference cooling performance that's not just noisy but could also cool the GPU inadequately, making it throttle. With AMD allowing its partners to come up with non-reference design cards, most AMD Radeon add-in board (AIB) partners are pulling out their workhorses (think DirectCU II, WindForce 450W, TwinFrozr IV, VaporX Dual-X, etc). PowerColor has more fluid plans. The company could be among the first partners to come up with an R9 290X card that's ready for liquid cooling out of the box, the R9 290X LCS.

PowerColor Radeon R9 290X LCS features a full-coverage liquid-cooling block by EK Water Blocks, which besides the PowerColor LCS branding, is basically EK-FC R9-290X with the nickel-acetal top option. The block appears to be factory-fitted onto an AMD reference design PCB. PowerColor didn't mention clock speeds or pricing, although given the block's $145 aftermarket price, one can't discount the possibility of a $120~150 premium over the $549.99 pricing of the R9 290X. PowerColor could launch the Radeon R9 290X LCS, along with another air-cooled non-reference design card a little later this month.

EVGA GeForce GTX 770 4 GB Found Incompatible With EK-FC770 GTX

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is issuing a note regarding changes in EK-FC770 GTX series water block compatibility list. It has come to our attention that EVGA GeForce GTX 770 graphics cards with 4GB of video memory are now incompatible with EK-FC770 GTX due to use of non-standard inductor coils, namely for the Vdd voltage regulation circuity. Force installing the water block on to the affected graphics card will result in dangerously warped circuit board and is as such deemed not safe for use (as shown on the photo below).
