EKWB Working on 7 New Water Blocks

EKWB has announced that it is working on a vast assortment of new water blocks, all but one of which are built for graphics cards.

The first block is for the Asus Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard. This block will be known as the EK-FB ASUS R4BE Monoblock, which as the name indicates, is a single water block that will cover all the crucial parts of the motherboard. This block is expected to make its debut on May 6.

The first graphics block is a universal module that will be known as the EK-Thermosphere, and it'll find its way to shelves around May 5. (This is the block in the picture.)

EKWB is also working on a block for the GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti cards, though this was already announced a while back. These blocks will be built on a universal design. PCB designs for these cards vary greatly from manufacturer to manufacturer; EKWB can't possibly make blocks for each different card. This block will be known as the EK-FC750 GTX and will be available from EKWB on May 13.

Furthermore, EKWB is making water blocks for the ROG Matrix GTX 780 Ti as well as the ROG Matrix R9 290X. These blocks will be known as the EK-FC780 GTX Ti Matrix and the EK-FC R9-290X Matrix, respectively, and will be available in the second half of May.

Of course, writing about this, we are saving the best for last; EKWB is also working on water blocks for the two new dual-GPU graphics cards – the R9 295X2 and the GTX Titan Z. These blocks will be known as the EK-FC R9-295X2 and the EK-FC Titan Z, respectively, though there is no information yet on release dates for these.

That's all the info we have for now on EKWB's update. Stay tuned for more details as the water blocks make their way to the official announcements.
