EK releases ASUS® GeForce® GTX 1080 Strix Full-Cover water block
EK Water Blocks, Slovenia based premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce a new Full-Cover water block, designed and engineered specifically for ASUS® Strix series NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards – the EK-FC1080 GTX Strix.
EK-FC1080 GTX Strix is a high-performance Full-Cover water block, intended to replace the original DirectCU III cooler that comes with the graphics card out-of-the-box. The EK-FC1080 GTX Strix actively 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-FC1080 GTX Strix 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 performance, allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
EK-FC1080 GTX Strix water block covers the entire PCB of the graphics card.
Like with other GPU water blocks, the base is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal or acrylic (depending on the variant). Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for a safe installation procedure – see the pictures below.
EK-FC1080 GTX Strix water blocks are made in Slovenia, Europe and are readily available for pre-order through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. The water blocks will ship on Monday, 27th of June, 2016! An aesthetic retention backplates, which also cools the backside of the circuit board (namely around VRM area), will also be available for purchase at a later date.
