EKWB Announces Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 Water Block

These days, a motherboard manufacturer can't make a high-end gaming motherboard without expecting EKWB to make a water block for it. Such is the case with Gigabyte's G1.Sniper 5.

The water block, which will be known as the EK-FB GA G1.Sniper 5, covers the motherboard's VRM circuitry, the Z87 southbridge, and the PCIe lane splitter. It features the high-flow design, which can be used in combination with weaker pumps or in more complex loops.

The block is made of nickel-plated copper and features bits and bobs of acetal covering. It also supports the standard G1/4" fittings.

EKWB has already listed it for purchase on its online webshop for a price of €127.95, or $171.38.

    Would be a lot nicer If They Include or maybe sell separately interchangeable colored covers for the exposed parts and/or Unused RAM dimms and PCIe for those who want a different color scheme.
