Slovenian liquid-cooling gear manufacturer EK Water Blocks has released a full-cover water block for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X reference design graphics card. The ultra-enthusiast graphics card was designed with overclocking in mind, and EK’s water block will now allow overclockers to push their cards harder with liquid cooling.

The EK-FC Titan X allows water to flow directly over the GPU, RAM and voltage regulation module (VRM), which will help improve heat dissipation from these critical components and enable the graphics card and VRM to remain stable under high overclocks.

The new water block features EK’s central inlet split-flow cooling engine design, which was first seen on the EK-FC980 GTX for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980. The water block will also be able to handle reversed water flow without adversely affecting cooling performance. In addition, EK’s design offers good hydraulic performance, thus enabling it to be paired with weaker water pumps for wider compatibility with various liquid-cooling setups.

The EK-FC Titan X will come in five different variants with either a bare or nickel-plated electrolytic copper base, and a top made of either acrylic or POM Acetal material. EK is also releasing an aesthetic retention backplate which adds passive cooling for the memory IC and VRM on the back of the graphic card’s circuit board. The different SKUs are as below:

• EK-FC Titan X
• EK-FC Titan X- Acetal
• EK-FC Titan X- Nickel
• EK-FC Titan X- Acetal+Nickel
• EK-FC Titan X- Nickel (Original CSQ)
• EK-FC Titan X- Backplate- Black
• EK-FC Titan X- Backplate- Blue
• EK-FC Titan X- Backplate- Gold
• EK-FC Titan X- Backplate- Red

EK has also designed the EK-FC Titan X to perfectly align with the older EK-FC980 GTX and EK-FC780 GTX Ti water blocks to facilitate easier and hassle-free upgrading. This is probably a good design decision, as liquid-cooling enthusiasts in search of serious performance will probably be among the first to upgrade to the new GeForce GTX Titan X.

The water blocks are available now from the EK Webshop or through its Partner Reseller Network.
