EK introduces EK-FC7970 CSQ series water blocks
Ljubljana, June 27th 2012
EK is proud to introduce refreshed lineup of EK-FC7970 series water blocks in CSQ design. The lineup again consists of four versions to suit the demands of customers.
EK-FC7970 CSQ is a high performance full-cover water block for AMD reference design Radeon HD 7970 and -7950 graphics card. 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 high overclocks. EK-FC7970 water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
Cold-plate (base) is made of electrolytic copper (bare or nickel-plated) while the top is made of quality cast, satin finished acrylic or flat POM Acetal material. The sealing is performed by quality rubber washers. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure. Water blocks are mounted with enclosed M3x4 DIN7985 screws and washers. The design allows any G1/4" threaded opening to be used as inlet or outlet.
The aesthetic retention backplate (EK-FC7970 Backplate – Black CSQ) is also available. This backplate improves the looks of your graphics cards and also provide some passive cooling to the VRM section. EKWB also offers a single-slot I/O bracket which frees adjacent PCI/PCIe expansion slot. The bracket is available as an optional add-on and can be purchased through EKWB webshop.
The angled connection terminal EK-FC Link is already bundled with each water block and allows for up to four cards to be connected via EK-FC Bridge & Link CSQ system. The bridges are available for separate purchase through EK Webshop.
