EK Waterblocks announces the availability of its full-cover Radeon R9 Fury X series waterblocks. Pricing starts at 99.95EUR for the regular and acetal models while the nickel and acetal+nickel versions will cost you 109.95EUR. The firm also offers backplates, pricing of these starts at 29.95EUR for a black version.
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is excited to launch the true single-slot liquid cooling solution for AMD® Radeon® reference design R9 FURY X graphics card.

EK-FC R9 Fury X directly cools the GPU, HBM 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 R9 Fury X water block features EK unique central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance. Such system also works flawlessly with the 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. Unlike the original AIO cooling solution that comes with AMD® Radeon® R9 FURY X and takes up two slots, EK-FC R9 Fury X water block will transform the FURY X into a single-slot graphics card!

The 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 feature two pre-drilled slots for 3mm LED diodes. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure.

Additionally the EK-FC R9 Fury X has been engineered with FC Terminal connection ports for up to four FURY X on a single ATX form factor motherboard, thus allowing for trouble-free swap out and upgrade without any additional 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 motherboards from various manufacturers to EK Cooling Configurator database and compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on a daily basis.
