EKWB has responded to the needs of enthusiasts and is excited to introduce these new products:

EK-HD Tube (multiple VGA water blocks connectivity set)

EK-HD Tube is a multiple VGA water blocks connectivity set consisting of a pair of pre-cut solid Acrylic tubes. In conjunction with EK-HD Adapter fittings this EK-HD Tube set can be used as an alternative solution for connecting multiple full-cover GPU water blocks (SLI/CrossFireX). These sets are available in two different dimensions - 10/12mm and 12/16mm (ID/OD) and pre-cut to perfect size to use with latest EK-FC water blocks using EK-FC Terminal (e.g. EK-FC7990 SE, EK-FC Titan SE, EK-FC770 GTX, etc.).
