New water cooling gear in the works (May 2014)
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is working on a plethora of new water blocks, namely for the following graphics cards and motherboards:
|Universal GPU||VGA||EK-Thermosphere||May 5th|
|ASUS® Rampage IV Black Edition||FB||EK-FB ASUS R4BE Monoblock||May 6th|
|AMD® Radeon® R9 295X2||FC||EK-FC R9-295X2||TBA|
|NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX Titan Z||FC||EK-FC Titan Z||release date|
|NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 750 (Ti)||FC||EK-FC750 GTX||May 13th|
|ASUS ROG Matrix GTX 780 Ti||FC||EK-FC780 GTX Ti Matrix||H2 of May|
|ASUS ROG Matrix R9 290X||FC||EK-FC R9-290X Matrix||H2 of May|
The upcoming water blocks are engineered and developed in cooperation with their respected partners, such as AMD®, ASUS® and NVIDIA®. Full Cover water coolers such as EK-FC R9-295X2, EK-FC Titan Z as well as both Matrix variants will directly cool the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water will flow directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it’s VRM to remain stable under high overclocks.
All six graphics card water blocks will feature side-attached Terminal port system – up to four water blocks could be used on a single ATX form factor motherboard by using EK-FC Terminal (DUAL, TRIPLE or QUAD type) system or other means of interconnectivity. Again, these blocks will also feature a high flow design allowing the products to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
In order to simplify the search for suitable and compatible water block EK is adding newly released graphics cards from various manufacturers to EK Cooling Configurator database and compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on daily basis:
