EKWB Announces GTX 760 Water Block Compatibility

By - Source: EKWB | B 6 comments

EKWB has announced that its EK-FC670 GTX or EK-FC680 GTX water blocks will be compatible with certain GTX 760 cards based on the GTX 670 or GTX 680 PCB design.

EKWB has announced that a number of its current water blocks are already compatible with the recently released GTX 760 (read our review here). According to EKWB, because the GTX 760 carries the same GK104 GPU found on the GTX 660 Ti, GTX 670, and GTX 680, a number of manufacturers have opted to use the PCBs from existing GTX 670 or GTX 680 parts. The water blocks for those cards will work on the set GTX 760 card accordingly.

While the use of various PCBs makes it difficult for users to choose which water block will work, it might be difficult for some to choose whether they need the EK-FC670 GTX or EK-FC680 GTX blocks, so EKWB has already added over 20 GTX 760 graphics cards to its configuration utility. Alternatively, you can always compare the PCB designs to figure out which cooler you need.

There is no word on whether EKWB is working on any water blocks specifically for the GTX 760.

    What exactly is the point of having a waterblock on mid range GPU? The extra cost could be put towards a card of the next tier instead.

    Exactly. Totally defeats the purpose of buying a mid-range card from the get-go (because you don't have enough in your budget to buy a high end card).

    Noise . Longevity . Appearance

    Mostly noise, I guess. Not really a very strong point, tho...

    it's just a block. not a full WC rig.if you upgrade from an old pc you just have to buy a card and a block.
    there's certainly a market for mid range gpu waterblocks because they have been made since many years ago.

    My point is 2 way SLI 760 is faster than a Titan at a wayyyy cheaper price , watercooling them make them even more powerfull with the use of GPUboost2.0 thank you come again hater
