EK Water Blocks has introduced its lineup of GTX 770 water blocks, the EK-FC770 GTX blocks. The blocks are designed to fit on the reference GTX 770 cards, so compatibility with custom PCBs is less likely and cannot be guaranteed.
The blocks feature the high-flow design, meaning that they are built to be less restrictive so that they can be used with weaker pumps and in more elaborate loops. The central core uses a narrow micro-channel structure, which EKWB claims improves heat transfer.
EKWB will release five different versions of the water block. Two versions with copper bases will be available, one with an acetyl cover and another with an acrylic cover. The three versions with nickel bases include one with an acetyl cover, another with an acrylic cover, and a last version that follows the original CSQ design -- an acrylic top with the widely-known circle design.
The units will ship with pre-installed brass standoffs, thermal pads and one gram of TIM. MSRP pricing ranges from €89.95 to €99.95 (or in USD for $119.39 to $132.66). The units will be available starting June 13, 2013 through EKWB's online webshop as well as other select partners.
