Published: Feb 15th 2013, 05:26 GMT


EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to officially release the EK-FC7990 incl. Backplate, a Full-Coverage water block for the undisputedly hottest gaming graphics card in the world (500W+) – Radeon HD 7990 – bundled with an aluminum backplate.

EK-FC7990 is a high performance full-coverage water block engineered specifically for PowerColor/VTX3D/Club3D Radeon HD 7990 series graphics cards. This water block directly cools both GPUs, RAM as well as both VRM (voltage regulation modules) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it’s VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC7990 water block also features a high flow design, therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using multiple blocks in a single loop.

EK also encloses the EK-FC7990 Backplate made of high precision CNC milled aluminum with a black anodized finish. This backplate directly cools the memory IC on the backside of the circuit board as well as provides additional overall stability to the card. A two-slot I/O bracket replaces the original three-slot, in order to make installation of multiple graphics cards easier, is also included.

Up to four EK-FC7990 water blocks can be interconnected using EK-FC Terminal system or other methods of interconnectivity.
