The Latest EK-FC GeForce GTX FE Water Blocks Will Replace Their Earlier Announced Counterparts for GeForce GTX 10x0 and Titan X

EK Water Blocks presented full-cover water blocks for Pascal generation GeForce GTX video cards, namely EK-FC GeForce GTX FE. The specialty is an extraordinary solution, because it’s compatible with as many as 106 graphics accelerators, which is atypical for full-cover products.



EKWB releases several samples, suitable for GeForce GTX 1060, 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti, Titan X Pascal and Titan Xp cards. The vendor doesn’t distinguish between water blocks models and calls all of them EK-FC GeForce GTX FE. Moreover, the company remarks that new EK-FC GeForce GTX FE units will replace earlier announced products for reference GeForce GTX 10x0 and Titan X adapters.


Specialties will be available in four versions, differing in materials, used for their production. The lower EK-FC GeForce GTX FE part can be performed either out of pure copper or out of nickel-plated copper. The upper part can be manufactured out of POM Acetal or acrylic material.

Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.



Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.


The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.

The new flagship GeForce GTX 1080 Ti pleased its users with the excellent performance results. But along with the performance of the new flagship, its heat emission increased as well. The reference versions are equipped with a turbine-type cooler, which decently deals with the nominal mode only. If one wants to get more from the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, non-reference versions with powerful cooling are needed.
