EKWB Wasted No Time Preparing A Fury X Water Block

EKWB is one of the leading water cooling companies on the planet, and it often has support for the latest cards fairly quickly. The company wasted no time at all getting ready for AMD's new Fury cards.

In a short teaser post on Facebook, EKWB showed off the validation sample of its upcoming EK-FC R9 Fury X water block. Thanks to the single row of display outputs that AMD has used for the Fury X, EKWB is able to offer a true single slot solution.

As you can see from the image, a larger percentage of the block itself is simply made of acrylic. With HBM memory, the surface area that needs to be cooled is much smaller than traditional GPU setups.

The company teased that the blocks would be available next week in "all flavors." EKWB generally releases copper and nickel-plated copper versions, each with the option of acrylic or acetal tops, so expect four variations next week.

    lol, in case your not happy with a very effective water cooler included you can put a different one on. I understand that it's nice to have it all in one system but it seems to me this should be targeted at the Fury not the Fury X. It probably does fit the Fury as well in all honesty. I still find it amusing.

    If you already have a water cool set up with multiple radiators, it makes perfect sense to not want to use the all in one included with the card(where am I going to stick that extra fan...). Just give me a card with universal barbs and I am good to go. On second though though, my 7970 has aged pretty well, still not seeing a reason to step up, it does spend most of it time off as well.
