Slovenian manufacturer of fine water cooling solutions for CPUs and GPUs has published on April 5, 2017 the availability and price list for the new Full-Cover water blocks for NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards.
Directly citing from the manufacturer’s website:
“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 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.”
Availability and Pricing
Availability will start on April 12, 2017 directly from the online shop of the manufacturer, so you can expect products to be available through partners shortly after. MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) should be as follows:
- EK-FC1080 GTX Ti – Nickel: 119.95€
- EK-FC1080 GTX Ti – Acetal+Nickel: 119.95€
- EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Backplate – Black: 29.95€
- EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Backplate – Nickel: 37.95€
When it comes to compatibility, the waterblocks will fit on the Founders Edition PCB version of graphic cards from different manufacturers, including ASUS, Colorful, Gainward, Inno3D and others. A full list is available on EK Waterblocks’ website, here.
We hope to receive samples soon to test cooling performance of this new waterblock, so stay tuned.
