EK Water Blocks has just introduced two new complete liquid cooling solutions for the Gigabyte Z87X-OC and Z87X-OC Force motherboards. These are of course Gigabyte’s enthusiast overclocking motherboards based on the latest Z87 chipset and support Intel’s 4th Generation Core Haswell processors. Because these are overclocking boards it makes sense for EK to make water blocks for them.
The EK-FB GA Z87X-OC Force is a complete water cooling solution for the Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force motherboard. The water block will directly cool the Z87 PCH, PLX PEX 8474 PCIe lane splitter as well as the power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module. This is a single piece and high flow design so it can be used with systems with weaker pumps.
The EK-FB KIT GA Z87X-OC is a compelte water cooling solution for the Gigabyte Z87X-OC motherboard. The water block will directly cool the Z87 PCH and power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module. This is a two piece set design that also is high flow so it can be used in systems with weaker pumps.
The base of these blocks are made of (nickel plated – depending on the model and variant) electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal material. The sealing is ensured by the use of quality rubber gaskets. The nickel plated brass screw-in standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for easy and trouble-free installation.
The EK-FB KIT GA Z87X-OC will retail for 79.95€ (incl. VAT), the EK-FB GA Z87X-OC Force – Acetal will be 122.95€ (incl. VAT) and finally the EK-FB GA Z87X-OC Force – Acetal+Nickel will be 127.95€ (incl. VAT). All the blocks will be available July 15th 2013.
