EK Water Blocks Introduces Aorus GTX 1080 Ti Series FC Blocks

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing two EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Aorus water blocks that are compatible with GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 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, 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 full load and high overclocks. EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Aorus 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.

EK Announces GeForce GTX FE Full-Cover Water Blocks

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing several new EK-FC GeForce GTX FE water blocks that are compatible with multiple reference design Founders Edition NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti, Titan X Pascal and Titan Xp based graphics cards. All the water blocks feature recently introduced aesthetic terminal cover as well! FE blocks come as a replacement to current GeForce GTX 10x0 / TITAN X Series of water blocks.

All current GeForce GTX 10x0 / TITAN X Series of water blocks are going to be discontinued after the stock runs out and FE blocks come as a complete replacement. FE blocks are designed to fit all reference design Founders Edition NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti, Titan X Pascal and Titan Xp based graphics cards. The current compatibility list rounds up a total of 106 graphics cards that are on the market, but as always, we recommend that you refer to the EK Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match.

Alphacool Intros the Eisblock XPX CPU Water Block

Alphacool proudly presents the XPX Eisblock clear and satin versions. As with the other versions of the XPX, Alphacool relies on their specially developed and patented ramp technology. This innovation significantly improves the cooling performance, which has already been shown in tests with the normal Eisblock XPX. It allows the water to flow evenly over all the cooling fins instead of just rushing through the middle section and nearly standing still at the edges. Additionally, the Eisblock XPX boasts a large bottom surface of 34 x 32mm, perfect for CPUs with 8 or more cores, and a very fine fin structure of 0.2mm.


Alphacool is also the first water cooling manufacturer worldwide to dispense with Plexiglas and instead use transparent nylon, the material of the future, for both coolers. Nylon is a much more robust material than Plexiglas, meaning that the danger of cracks in the cooler is drastically reduced. Cracks can occur due to connectors being fastened too tightly or some other uneven strain on the Plexiglas.

EK is Releasing New Gaming Series Kits

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is excited to introduce a new line of EK Kits. Gaming Series kits or in short G Kits are a great choice for every liquid cooling beginner and users want to take advantage of their 5.25" bays.

Gaming kits come in three different versions, where the size of the radiator and number of fans is the only difference between them. As with all other EK kits, G series kits are named after the radiator size that comes with each kit. Hance, EK-KIT G240, EK-KIT G280 and EK-KIT G360.

Swiftech Intros a Pair of GTX 1080 Ti Water Blocks

Swiftech introduced two new full-coverage water blocks for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti under its Komodo brand. These include the Komodo NV-LE GTX 1080 Ti, and the Komodo NV-ECO GTX 1080 Ti (pictured in that order). The Komodo NV-LE GTX 1080 Ti features a chrome-plated copper base, with a clear acrylic top, that is further topped off by a matte-black aluminium plate with diamond-cut edges. The block includes RGB multi-color LED lighting elements, with a standardized 4-pin LED header. The block features standard G1/4" threading for your fittings.

The Komodo NV-ECO GTX 1080 Ti is a "lite" version of the NV-LE. It features the same exact block base made of chrome-plated copper, but features a clear acrylic top, which lacks the aluminium top-plate featured on the NV-LE. It also lacks the RGB LED elements and Iris-Eco lighting controller, but features preparation for them, so you can optionally order them, or add them later down the line. Both blocks are also compatible with NVIDIA TITAN Xp. The Komodo NV-LE GTX 1080 Ti is priced at USD $169.95, while the Komodo NV-ECO GTX 1080 Ti goes for $119.95.

MSI Intros GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SeaHawk EK X Graphics Card

MSI today introduced its flagship GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, the GTX 1080 Ti SeaHawk EK X. Unlike the GTX 1080 Ti SeaHawk series, which come with factory-fitted AIO liquid cooling solutions, the SeaHawk EK X comes with a factory-fitted full-coverage water block made by EK Water Blocks, which you plumb to your own liquid cooling loop. In theory, this card can have superior cooling to its AIO liquid cooling siblings. The underlying PCB between the two cards is different, too. Whlie the SeaHawk EK X comes with the same PCB as the GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Plus, the SeaHawk comes with a slightly shorter PCB that's derived from NVIDIA reference PCB, found on the company's GTX 1080 Ti Aero series.

Interestingly, the MSI GTX 1080 Ti SeaHawk EK X comes with the same factory-overclocked speeds out of the box, as the SeaHawk series - 1544 MHz core, 1657 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 11 GHz (GDDR5X-effective). The "OC Mode," enabled using the included MSI Gaming app, runs the card at 1569/1683 MHz core/boost, with 11.12 GHz memory. The company didn't reveal pricing, although we expect this card to be priced around $850.
