EK releases Jetstream GTX 10 series of water blocks

 

EK has released their new Jetstream series of GTX 1080/70 series water blocks for owners of Palit or Gainward Jetstream series GPUs giving users with this aftermarket GPU design the chance to water cool their product with a product that has been specifically designed to support it. 

This block is made from Nickel plated copper and can come with either a Black Acetal top or an acrylic top, allowing this block to work with the colour schemes of pretty much any water cooled PC.

This GPU water block is very similar to EK's existing designs, using EK's innovative split-flow cooling design, which allows this water block to provide great cooling performance while decreasing flow restriction within the block itself. This design allows this water block to be used with even weak low wattage pump designs.   

This new waterblock from EK is now available to purchase on EK's own Webshop. Below is a table containing the MSRP of the water block itself and its backplate designs.

They make all the custom PCBs blocks for Nvidia cards, but refuse to do anything for custom 480's and AMD in general.. they need to step up there game.Quote

Erm... They do blocks for reference 480s already dude? And considering the only difference between a reference 480 and a custom one tends to be trying to control heat by slapping on a huge cooler, I'm sure that a water-cooled reference 480 will perform just as well as a custom one.

At least, I hope so, cos that's the way I'm going with my next build... :/Quote

Yeah reference, not custom. Custom cards are different enough to wear a reference won't fit, not to mention the 8pins they use are more reliable for the card/board. And they very rarely do anything more than reference for AMD, which is why I said that.

And no, no custom air cooled card will ever perform as great as under water. These custom cards are designed to be silent till 70-75C. So they do hit those temps.Quote

I can't blame EK for this. There are very few lower end cards that are catered for for good reason. There has been a shift recently, but mainly for the reference cards.

I can't see this changing any time soon or at all. The demand has and always will be for higher end cards to be water cooled. R&D costs need to be covered, so a healthy market share has to be help for custom PCB's to be developed for, plus the contemplation that 80%+ mid to lower tier cards are sold to a sector of the market that will never even contemplate water cooling, let alone creating a custom loop to use a block and back plate that costs as much as the card itself.Quote

I get the money part, but considering EK make little to no changes between blocks except for design fits and they charge basically the exact same for nearly every block, I don't see the money issue anymore. They are charging for premium. If you go to EK, you know what you are paying for. They need to retain there Luxury/top of the line watercooling persona afterall. Or they really just could make a cheaper version using thinner materials, maybe less overall nickel plated, more plastic(not acrylic), etc for those cheaper custom cards. Market share isn't really a concern for them, it's a niche market, they already know the market share is small. The best they could do is capitalize to the biggest market they play in and try to bring the niche to more people. They already established themselves(my opinion at least) as the best WC company out there. Half the battle is already done.

Unless they are really struggling for money, then no they shouldn't take on the other market. They should instead focus on clearing out more competition to increase the niche market share they currently retain. I do see your point, but as a risk taker myself, i'm not really buying the money thing. I think they can do and be so much more. but you're not wrong in your view, I'm just not buying itQuote
