EK Introduces the EK-Thermosphere Universal GPU Water Block

EK-Thermosphere is a high performance universal GPU water block built off EK-Supremacy cooling engine, designed specifically for the use with EK-FC Terminal interconnects in multiple graphics card system. Other heat generating components (such as RAM and VRM integrated circuit) need alternative cooling method (fan and/or self adhesive heatsinks).

"We're pleased to introduce our new conceptually new universal GPU water block," said Niko Tivadar, EK-Thermosphere main designer and Product Manager of EKWB. "EK-Thermosphere is a new addition to our Clean CSQ industrial design line and features very slim construction, thanks to completely new architecture. Unmatched thermal performance and even more straight-forward installation procedure than before are key features of this product. Hooking up liquid cooling to four GPUs has never been easier."

MSI Readies Liquid-Cooled HD 7970 GHz Edition Lightning Graphics Card

The performance lead that MSI's Radeon HD 7970 Lightning maintained over reference HD 7970 was cut down, first by NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680, and then by AMD's own Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, leaving its engineers to go back to the drawing boards, and design an even faster graphics card. The result: a liquid-cooled HD 7970 GHz Edition Lightning graphics card, which could push clock-speeds up even further. The card ships with a pre-installed full-coverage water-block, made by EK WaterBlocks (EKWB). It comes ready for 6-display Eyefinity, with four mini-DisplayPort and two DVI. Here's hoping one of those is a dual-link DVI. More details are awaited.

Update: We've received word that it's not that MSI has a new product in the works, but that EKWB has a water-block tailored for MSI's existing R7970 Lightning.

EK Introduces Two Water Blocks for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590

EK WaterBlocks is ready with two new full-coverage water blocks for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590, the EK-FC590-GTX-Nickel (with transparent acrylic top), and EK-FC590-GTX-Nickel+Acetal (with opaque acetal top). Tops aside, the two are of the same design. The primary material is copper with nickel plating to minimize corrosion over time. It uses a common channel design with ridges over the two GPU areas, and pressure-building points over the other areas such as the GTX 590's feisty VRM. Overall, the block is rectangular in shape, and rather than finding a way around the cylindrical capacitors, it makes room for them using holes in the block. The EK-FC590-GTX-Nickel is priced at €124.96, while the EK-FC590-GTX-Nickel+Acetal goes for €129.95.

EK WaterBlocks Ready With GeForce GTX 295 Offering

EK WaterBlocks, a well-known name with computer enthusiasts is ready with its offering for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 dual-GPU graphics accelerator. As with any water-block made for the GeForce 9800 GX2 and GeForce GTX 295, this block consists of two cooling surfaces for each of the two PCBs.

EK WaterBlocks' latest unit (model: EK-FC295 GTX SLI) is a monolithic full-coverage block made of copper and acrylic glass. Each of the cooling surfaces has contact points for the various components of the accelerator. The block is available with a whole range of options with its fittings. It is SLI-capable, meaning that its fittings allow its fluid to be relayed to the next accelerator. The block weighs 1.35 kg (around 3 lbs). It will be available from EK WaterBlocks' store starting tomorrow, priced at 125€ (around US $172.60).
