EK releases two new EVGA® GeForce® GTX 900 series blocks
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce two new Full-Cover water blocks for EVGA® brand NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX graphics cards, namely for GTX 970 ACX (2.0) and GTX 980 Classified series graphics cards.
EK-FC980 GTX Classy – with Classy standing as Classified abbrevation – is a high-performance Full-Cover water block for EVGA non-reference Classified design GeForce® GTX 980 graphics cards while EK-FC970 GTX ACX is a high-performance Full-Cover water block for EVGA non-reference ACX design GeForce® GTX 970 graphics cards.
Both water blocks actively cool 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.
Both types 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.
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 safe installation procedure.
In order to simplify the search for suitable and compatible water block EK is adding newly released graphics cards and motherboard from various manufacturers to EK Cooling Configurator database and compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on daily basis:
These water blocks are made in Slovenia, Europe and are readily available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. An aesthetic retention backplate, which also cools the backside (memory IC and VRM) of the circuit board, is also available for separate purchase and comes as black and nickel variant.
