EKWB has released a lot of great cooling solutions be it CPU blocks, GPU blocks, other parts for a loop, or entire custom loop kits. We previously reviewed the EK full cover block made for the 295x2, 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 GPU, vRAM, and VRM's with water flowing directly over top of them. If this is anything like the results we saw before, things are are going to get a lot cooler around here!

Nice article ED. :thup:

I will only add, if your rad fans were in the 1800-2200 RPM range on the testing, I'm sure your H20 temps would have decreased even more and increased the gap between the air cooler but than again, you'll just be adding more noise to the loop, that's if the user wants the most cooling done possible or find a medium, like you have, in keeping it silent.
