EKWB Launches a New Water Block for GV-N680SO-2GD

Early August of 2012 was marked for Gigabyte by the release of its one more graphics card, codenamed GeForce GTX 680 SOC (GV-N680SO-2GD). This card can boast the availability of high factory frequencies and quite mighty cooling system. The nominal frequencies have been heightened to 1137MHz, 1202MHz, and 6200MHz for memory. Such outstanding characteristics required the integration of a high-quality and high-performance cooling system which consisted of five(!) fans. This made the card rather voluminous, cumbersome and noisy. That was when EKWB decided to design a dedicated water block to be employed with this remarkable graphics adapter.

Water block EK-FC 680 GTX SOC is housed on a copper base, good-quality acetal cover, and rubber shims as a compressor.
