EK Water Blocks announced the availability of the EK-FC980 GTX TI WF3 water block, engineered specifically for Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti WindForce 3X graphics cards.
The EK-FC980 GTX TI WF3 block is a full cover design, and it covers the entirety of the PCB. It offers cooling for the VRMs and memory chips, along with the GPU itself. EKWB said that water flows over all three of these critical areas, so none of these components are left to be passively cooled, which the company said will help keep the voltage regulators remain stable under high overclocks.
EKWB has been using a central inlet split-flow design recently. The company said this design is unique to EKWB and offers what it considers the best cooling performance possible. The split-flow inlet allows for reversed loop direction, and the ability to use weaker pumps without adverse effect.
As has been typical of EKWB branded blocks for some time, the EK-FC980 GTX TI WF3 will be available in multiple varieties. The company is not currently offering a bare copper option, but the blocks are available with nickel plated copper with the option of a clear acrylic top, or a black POM Acetal top.
