One of the finest water cooling gear manufacturer, EK Water Blocks, is very excited to reveal the latest EK-HD Tube and EK-HD Adapter series products. The usage of solid acrylic tubes in PC water cooling systems is well accepted by the designers. EKWB has replied very well to the requirements of users and therefore has high hopes of success with launching its new products.
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.
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Gonzalo Galvan’s Pipe Fusion build. Here is what he had to say about it: It’s my second project, but the first with such dedication, at first were some simple changes but slowly began to appear new ideas that led me to change the entire interior to adapt to the watercooling. I am very happy with the mod to be better than I expected.
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have a builders ReactorMod build. Here is what he had to say about it: It’s a modded Chieftec BX-03 case. I wanted to make it look like it’s quite old and kinda shabby. I was thinking about this build for quite a long time, so I managed to collect some cool stuff that I’ve found on a nearby scrap yard (e.g. switch or steel sheet that I used to make the radiator cover). I also used some spare parts that I had lying around.
EK Water Blocks has released their first product in an upcoming line of liquid nitrogen (LN2) evaporation coolers for competitive overclockers. The EK-SF3D Triple Point EVO works in conjunction with up to four module adapters to allow users to overclock and cool (with LN2) practically any DDR-SDRAM module and of any generation.
AMD has officially released their Radeon HD 7990 graphics card today and EK Water Blocks is hard at work on a full-cover water block for the new dual-GPU card. The upcoming water block will be called the EK-FC7990 SE and will directly cool both GPUs, memory as well as the VRMs (voltage regulation module). Water will flow directly over these areas. With this block users will be able to have stable overclocks as these critical areas will be kept nice and cool.
EK Water Blocks has unveiled their latest full-board motherboard water block, the EK-FB ASR Z77 Extreme11. This water block is made specifically for ASRock’s Z77 Extreme 11 motherboard. It is a complete liquid cooling solution for the board as it directly cools the Z77 southbridge (PCH), PLX PEX 8474 PCIe lane splitter, LSI SAS2308 control hub as well as power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module.
EK Water Blocks has another first on their hands as they have announced the first ware cooling solution for both AMD FirePro W9000 and S10000 graphics cards. These waterblocks use a single slot design and allow for virtually any configuration to be used and expanded when necassery. So if space is an issue this solution is great as it turns the stock dual slot card into a single slot card. Both water blocks will be available Friday, April 5th.
