EKWB GIGABYTE GTX 980 Ti Xtreme Gaming Full Cover Waterblock Review

EKWB has released a lot of great cooling solutions, be it, CPU blocks, GPU blocks, parts for a loop, or entire custom loop kits. We reviewed the full cover block EK made for the 295×2 previously and with good results in our loop. Today we are going to look at another high-performance full cover water block made especially for Gigabyte’s monster GTX 980 Ti Xtreme Gaming card. The EK-FC980 GTX Ti XG reviewed here actively cools the RAM, GPU, and VRM’s with water flowing directly over top of them. If its anything like the results we saw before, things are are going to get a lot cooler around here! Read More

EK Predator 240 AIO Cooler Review

EK bills this as “Pre-filled CPU Xpandable Liquid Cooling.” You can add an additional water block (EK suggests a GPU) and a reservoir. You could turn into a real water head. Today we have the 240 mm version in front of us. Does it live up to its heritage? Let’s see. Read More

EKWB EK-KIT X240 Watercooling Kit Review

Recently we had a chance to look at a couple of EK products. I reviewed their 295×2 waterblock,and just a few days ago Lvcoyote reviewed their Supremacy EVO CPU waterblock. Both of those products performed quite well during their reviews. Today, we have a complete custom kit from EK, which they call the EK-KIT X240. This kit comes with a 2×120 mm double thick radiator, their DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Edition pump, the Supremacy Clean CSQ waterblock, and all the parts needed to complete a full custom loop. Today, we will put it through its paces and see how it fares! Read More

EKWB Supremacy EVO Water Block Review

Well known for their top performing water cooling products, EKWB is normally the go-to company when you want the best water cooling components there are. While they quite often bring new video card and full-board motherboard water blocks to market, it’s not as frequent we see a new CPU water block released. If you’ve been waiting for a new CPU water block from EKWB, the wait is over. Their new Supremacy EVO water block hits our test bench today, and we’re excited to see what this new offering has in store for us. So, let’s not waste any more time and get right to it! Read More

EK 295x2 Waterblock Review

Good day OCF readers! Today, you are going to get a nice treat with a follow up article about the AMD R9 295×2 I reviewed. This time, its about getting it properly cooled. Part of that equation is with enough radiator, but an even more important part is the water block that cools it. EKWB was kind enough to send us their EK-FC R9-295X2, as well as their backplate so that is half of it… and I have more radiator than what came with the R9 295×2. I expect some good things out of this cooler (and card) since it actively cools the VRMs and the memory. Let’s take a look at see how it worked out!

EK WaterBlocks L360 Water Cooling Kit Review

EK Waterblocks (EKWB, or just EK) really needs no introduction in the water cooling world. They are a stalwart in the water business and produce lots of good products.

Today, we will be looking at their full water cooling kit, the EK-KIT L360. It comes with, quite literally, everything you need to water cool your processor. Read More

Asus Rampage III Extreme Board Blocks

I have been wanting to take a closer look at full board blocks for some time now and the Rampage III Extreme looked to be a good candidate, knowing several water block companies would be producing blocks. Asus was open to the idea and graciously provided us with a test board to beat on. But keep in mind, this is not a motherboard review but a look at water cooling the board and VRM’s and what is available on the market. Read More
