New EK Full-Cover water blocks for 1080 Ti AORUS graphics cards
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.
EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Aorus
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.

The base of the block is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of a high-quality acrylic material or POM Acetal material (depending on the variant). The top material does not affect the block performance in any way. The acrylic (Plexi) top also features two pre-drilled slots for 3mm LED diodes.
There is no performance difference between the two variants.
EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Aorus water block is compatible with GIGABYTE® AORUS GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti and GIGABYTE® AORUS GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition graphics cards.
