EKWB has finally introduced a long-awaited pair of water blocks: the EK-FC780 GTX Ti Matrix and the EK-FC R9-290X Matrix. These blocks are used for the GTX 780 Ti Matrix and the R9 290X Matrix cards from Asus.
The water blocks have a partial cover design, but will still cover the GPU, memory, and VRM circuitry. They will also feature a high-flow design, meaning that they can be used in systems with weaker pumps, or in longer, more complex loops.
Both of the blocks will be available in two types: either nickel-plated with an Acetal top; or nickel-plated with an acrylic top, allowing the fluid to be visible. The Acetal variant will cost $158.71, while the acrylic version will set you back $156.98. Backplates are also available for $47.73. All of the parts can be ordered immediately from the EKWB webshop.
