EK-FC980 GTX WF3 – with WF3 standing as WindForce 3X abbrevation – is a high-performance Full-Cover water block, designed for GIGABYTE® non-reference design GeForce® GTX 980 graphics cards.

EK-FC980 GTX WF3 water block features EK unique 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 perfromance allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
