EK Unveils NVIDIA TITAN V Full-coverage Water-block

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing water blocks for the most powerful PC GPU on the market to this day, the NVIDIA Titan V. The EK-FC Titan V full cover GPU water block will help you enjoy the full computing power of the Volta architecture based NVIDIA Titan V in a silent environment.

This water block directly cools the GPU, HBM2 memory, and VRM (voltage regulation module) as well! Water is channeled directly over these critical areas, thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks and to reach full boost clocks. EK-FC Titan V water block features a central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance, which also works flawlessly with reversed water flow without adversely affecting the cooling performance. Moreover, such design offers great hydraulic performance allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
The base of the block is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while the top is made of either acrylic- or POM Acetal material. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure.

EK also provides a single-slot I/O bracket which replaces the original two-slot in order to make installation of multiple graphics cards easier and also transforms the GPU into a gorgeous single slot solution. EK-FC Titan V water block is compatible with the NVIDIA Titan V based graphics card.

EK-FC Titan V water blocks and the corresponding backplates are made in Slovenia, Europe and are available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. EK-FC Titan V Backplate - Black is available for pre-order and will start shipping Tuesday, 27th of February 2018, EK-FC Titan V Backplate - Nickel is available for pre-order and will start shipping Monday, 5th of March 2018! In the table below you can see manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) with VAT included.
  • EK-FC Titan V 129.95€
  • EK-FC Titan V - Acetal + Nickel 129.95€
  • EK-FC Titan V Backplate - Black 33.95€
  • EK-FC Titan V Backplate - Nickel 39.95€

The block should include the card for free.

If this came standard on the Titan V and it was priced more appropriately, say $1200, I'd buy one right now.

You cant expect it to be the same price a the titan xp. thats like saying i'd buy a 1080 ti if it was $400.

What for, you've got 1080Ti SLI running at full 16x-16x with HB bridge, they'll murder that Titan.

Gotta say I envy that config more than someone who has a Titan V

Thanks man - ya my 1080Ti SLI cards run great, but sometimes I worry about developers not implementing SLI anymore and think about switching to the most powerful single GPU card. I do love SLI though. :)

EK will make a block for a Titan V, but it took them up until this very year to make any monoblocks for Asrock boards? They need new management is what I'd say if I'd actually consider buying any of their products (I'm a Watercool fan)

Anyone else notice how it has the old, rectangular style inlet/outlet manifold instead of the newer, angled one that came with the newest series GPU blocks? Hmmm....is EK reusing stock?

Does Watercool even make monoblocks, Asrock or not? :)

The inlet-outlet is still the same. New, angled bit is just an extra piece of plastic that can be screwed on. I think to the same screw holes you can see on the Titan V block picture.

It is a wash at 4K depending on game. Even pushing that third 1080Ti in with custom SLi profiles doesn't fix it.

as long as they're not thermal throttling and sli is working fine, 1080Ti SLI should be noticeably faster. Can't see reliable benchmarks, the only one I can verify is Titan V OC vs TXp OC, and the difference is not that big. I think it's even less than 1080Ti vs 1080 and 1080 SLI easily beats 1080Ti.

My cards run 2025mhz gaming. No throttling with the current setup. The lackluster game sli support is the main issue. When it works it is phenomenal

i've seen sli and xfire recently and it is even worse than almost 10 years ago, seems like microstuttering is an increasing issue.
And yeah, support is a bitch too.

Crossfire as of late seemed to have more game support than SLi I had 480's prior to my 1080Ti's, but the support wasn't as polished as the games that did support SLi correctly. It was like crossfire worked more often, but it worked poorly more often.

yes you can game on it expecting around +15% over gtx 1080ti, but Titan V is not for gaming, it has Tensor cores - up to 10x faster for deep learning applications compared 1080 Ti (those who know what "deep learning" is, those know that many times you must train your models for multiple hours to see the results, that indicates you have nothing and must start from scratch again... and rinse and repeat >:D... now this would x1/10 that time just like that). I would grab Titan V in a heat beat for 3k, if only it had something better that stock cooler (I just cant tolerate jet engine in my living room). Now EK gives me (and many more AI amateur wannabes) some options, sadly you still have to buy loop and have to buy this waterblock and then fumble with screwdriver around your new 3k worht card :/
