EK Announces Two RGB Versions of EK-Supremacy Evo and Full Cover Water Block for ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080
One of the leading brands in PC custom liquid cooling, EK Water Blocks, presented a RGB Version of the Supremacy EVO CPU Waterblock and a Full Cover Waterblock for all current ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti models.
EK Supremacy EVO CPU Water Block Specifications
This is a high-end, highly adaptable CPU water block, just as all the other EK-Supremacy EVO models so far. By combining jet plates and jet inserts, the cooling engine enables the water block to be fine-tuned for all mainstream Intel and AMD sockets for maximum performance. A high-flow design with low hydraulic restriction also allows this product to be used in setups using weaker water pumps or lower pump speed for added silent operation.
The EK-Supremacy EVO RGB water blocks come with a precisely machined copper base with a dense fin structure that counts 52 grooves with a spacing of 0.25mm apart. The purest copper available on the market is used which is treated with nickel electroplating and further polished to an absolute mirror finish. The top is CNC machined out of acrylic glass and the newly added frame sports a black brushed aluminum look.
The EK-Supremacy EVO RGB comes with a universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation supporting LGA-115x and LGA-20xx sockets out of the box. The mounting kit includes a sturdy steel backplate, springs, all the necessary mounting screws and a small tube of Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut high-performance thermal paste.
EK FC1080 GTX TI STRIX RGB Full Cover Water Block Specifications
This water block 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 full load and high overclocks. EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Strix RGB water block features a central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance, which 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.
The base on this block is CNC machined out of the same nickel plated electrolytic copper with the top using the same high quality acrylic used in other blocks. The sealing is ensured by quality rubber O-rings. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure.
EK® recommends the purchase of a retention backplate which improves the aesthetics of your graphics cards, but also provides additional passive cooling to the GPU core and circuit board VRM section. The EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Strix RGB water block is backward compatible with EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Strix Backplates. For users that own the altered version of the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti PCB (GPUs with serial numbers: HBYVCM064817 – HBYVCM999999, HCYVCM000001 – HCYVCM059975), there will be a new EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Strix Backplate Rev 2.0 available soon!
all three water blocks are compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers as it features a classic 4-pin 12V RGB LED strip.
