EK Launches Updated EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 Water Block

EK Water Blocks, the leading premium liquid cooling manufacturer, is further expanding its RGB portfolio by releasing the EK-FC1080 GTX Ti FTW3 RGB water block that is compatible with EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 based graphics cards. This kind of efficient cooling will allow your high-end graphics card to reach higher boost clocks, thus providing more performance during gaming or other GPU intense tasks.

This water block directly cools the GPU, VRAM and the 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 full load and high overclocks. EK-FC1080 GTX Ti FTW3 RGB 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 CNC machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is CNC machined out of high-quality acrylic material. The sealing is ensured by quality rubber O-rings. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure.

The EK-FC1080 GTX Ti FTW3 RGB water block is compatible with all popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers since it features a classic 4-pin 12V RGB LED strip.

The block also features a special aesthetic plastic cover over the block Terminal. This add-on is designed to reveal the graphics card model, visible from the side. EK-FC1080 GTX Ti FTW3 RGB water block is compatible with EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 based graphics cards.

MSRP: 149.95€.

Good, the air cooler they ship it with is ugly as hell.

Nice block, but that price! 150 Euros = $183, which somehow becomes $201 from EKWB webshop. Last time I priced them a year ago, they were all $100-$130. I guess outrageous GPU prices are making the fringe markets greedy, or maybe nobody is buying water cooling blocks for GPUs (miners typically don't water cool?), and low sales volume is increasing prices? It seems like the custom PC parts industry is self-destructing. Bad time to build a new top-end water-cooled PC, I guess.

That 149.95€ is including 19% VAT(If I go to that site, I got the price of 156.25€ which inclides 24% VAT from Finland). Without VAT it should be 126.01€ -> $155.15. But of course parts are from EU. So are there any customs between US and EU? And do you have VAT in Florida. All these are adding costs(the middlemen).

Looks like there are more GPU custom coolers than the GPU themselves...
