EK Introduces New ASUS ROG Matrix Water Blocks

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana-based premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is excited to introduce two new Full Cover water block for custom circuit board design NVIDIA and AMD powered ASUS Republic Of Gamers Matrix series graphics cards - ROG MATRIX-GTX780TI and -MATRIX-R9290X-P-4GD5.

EK-FC780 GTX Ti Matrix as well as EK-FC R9-290X Matrix directly cool 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. These CNC machined Full Cover water blocks also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
Base is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality cast acrylic material or POM Acetal (depending on the variant). Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe installation procedure. The cooling engine uses refined 0.6 mm wide microchannel structure to even further improve the heat transfer while not sacrificing the famous low hydraulic restriction design.

Up to four EK-FC780 GTX Ti Matrix or -R9-290X Matrix series water blocks can be interconnected with EK-FC Terminal which allows for hassle-free piping job. The product is readily available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network and each comes in two different variants. An aesthetic retention backplate is also available:

I like these guys! WC blocks for custom design cards are rare. One thing though: Will there be full cover blocks for these ASUS cards? It would be an instant buy. :)

This is a full cover block in that it actively covers and cools the core, VRM and VRAM. I know what you mean though, really wish EK would make these so they cover the entire PCB.

A full-cover block that fully covers the entire PCB! -> Is that better? 8)
