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:
The upcoming water blocks are engineered and developed in cooperation with their respected partners, such as AMD, ASUS, GIGABYTE and MSI. Full Cover water coolers such as EK-FC R9-290X VPX as well as both Matrix variants will directly cool the GPU, RAM and 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 four 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.
Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SOC Force and ASUS Maximus VII series (namely mATX Gene and ATX Ranger and -Hero) motherboard water cooling solutions are also in the making. All variants will feature nickel plated copper with either POM Acetal or plexi-glass top, depending on the variant. The MSI Z97I Gaming FB water block will be a Monoblock solution, cooling PCH, VRM as well as CPU - much like the EK-FB ASUS M6I.
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.
