EK Releases GeForce GTX TITAN X Water Blocks

 

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce Full-Cover water block for NVIDIA reference (NVA-PG600) design GeForce GTX TITAN X graphics card. EK-FC Titan X directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks.

EK-FC Titan X water block features EK unique central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance, which was introduced for the first time with the EK-FC980 GTX. Such system also works flawlessly with reversed water flow without adversely affecting the cooling performance. Moreover, such design offers great hydraulic performance allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.

Base is made of electrolytic copper (bare- or nickel-plated, depending on the variant) while the top is made of either acrylic- or POM Acetal material. Plexi variants also features two pre-drilled slots for 3mm LED diodes. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure.

Additionaly the EK-FC Titan X has been engineered to perfectly align with EK-FC980 GTX and older EK-FC780 GTX Ti, thus allowing for trouble-free swap out and upgrade without any changes to the cooling loop.

In order to simplify the search for suitable and compatible water block EK is adding newly released graphics cards and motherboard from various manufacturers to EK Cooling Configurator database and compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on daily basis.

These water blocks are made in Slovenia, Europe and are readily available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. An aesthetic retention backplate, which also cools the backside (memory IC and VRM) of the circuit board, is also available for separate purchase and comes in five different finish variants.

My thoughts 

While the Nvidia GTX Titan X is like all other members of it's series, with a low value proposition but with performance levels which are greater than any other GPU available at the time of release. While I do not recommend that you go out and spend you hard earned cash on it, it may be worth it for you if you require the bleeding edge in GPU performance (but sadly the double precision performance of the Titan X is less than the previous Titan).

It is fantastic to see EK design their Titan X waterblock with a little more wiggle room than usual, with the ability to use it on your existing GTX 980 and GTX 780Ti GPUs, so users will be able to use it on their existing GPU as they save up for the upgrade or just simply want to pretend that they have a Titan X when showing off their rigs to friends or at a LAN event. 

Sadly we were not able to get our hands on GTX Titan X for review before launch, as there are barely any in the UK or EU which are being circulated around the press. Rest assured that we are trying our hardest to get a sample, but with only 2 in the whole UK it might take a while.

In the My Thoughts part. Last part of the first paragraph you ended it with

Don't know if you forgot to add something?

But those blocks look good. And that neon green sure does catch your attentionQuote

Good spot, sadly sometimes small edits don't go through the editor for whatever reason. It is fixed now. I was just saying how the double precision performance is a little lacking on this card, as Nvidia has taken away those specific shaders.Quote

Gotta love software eh?

I think it is really dumb for Nvidia to hold the DP performance back though. Don't see why they couldn't keep it on and just advertise it for gamers and then change the business versions name a little bit and advertise it for that. But oh wellQuote

Pretty much. Nvidia have essentially taken away the one thing that differentiated the Titan Series from GTX XXX series cards. Taking away DP performance means that the only difference between this and the hypothetical GTX 990 (or whatever it will be called) is VRAM.Quote

The difference gets worse because you factor in price and the fact their is a possibility GTX 980s could potentially get 8GB versions(unless theirs a memory chip limitation currently).. just makes this card useless.

Still in the end however the products are out and the blocks for it too.. the EK full cover black one(don't know which name it is) kind of reminds me of Fractal little bit. Not flashy but looks professional and understated. Looks awesomeQuote
