EK Water Blocks
As NVIDIA infiltrates the mainstream playground with its bang-for-the-buck GTX660 lineups, and the high-end GPUs are getting special treatment with liquid cooling, what happens if you own one of the mid range GPUs, like the GTX660Ti, and want a full coverage water cooled card? Sadly, you are out of luck. You have been left out in the cold without any support from full-cover water blocks, and you have no choice but to use the universal (GPU only) block. However, the universal GPU only water block has its own disadvantages. We’ll discuss this further in the review. The fact is, there are no full-cover or limited water blocks for the mid-range graphics card, even if you own the GTX660Ti series. Consequently, most Ti cards are non-reference PCB designs and water block manufacturers are reluctant to provide any blocks for non-reference design cards. However, if you are the owner of the Asus GTX660Ti DCII or GTX670 DC II series, then you are in luck today. There is only one manufacturer brave enough to offer the full-cover water block for this non-reference design card, and that is EKWB. Overclockers, gamers and water cooling fanatics, meet the EK-FC670 GTX DCII block. The EK-FC670 GTX DCII is particularly designed to support most Asus GTX670 and GTX660 DrirectCu II lineups. A full coverage block support single or multiple graphic card configuration that utilizes high flow and micro-fins to provide maximum thermal performance. Read on to find out what this...
I have been anxious to test the EK-Supremacy since the date it released. The Supremacy name piqued my interest because the name “Supremacy” reminds me one of my favorite action flicks – “The Bourne Supremacy.” It was about a ruthless and bad-ass assassin who could terminate anyone with a bat of an eyelash. Supremacy means to dominate, control, and that one is superior to others. EK claims the Supremacy outperforms its legendary Supreme HF block by 2°C, and has better hydraulic flow by 20%. Finally, I have my hands on the EK-Supremacy and today we’re going to put this water block in the ring with some of today’s top CPU water blocks to see how it defends against the other ruthless arse-kicking water blocks. Read on to find out what this new flagship cooling block is all about.
