    Default EK-FC670 GTX DCII Water Block

    As NVIDIA infiltrates the mainstream playground with its bang-for-the-buck GTX660 lineups, and the high-end GPUs are getting special treatment with liquid cooling, what happens if you own one of the mid range GPUs, like the GTX660Ti, and want a full coverage water cooled card?Sadly, you are out of luck. You have been left out in the cold without any support from full-cover water blocks, and you have no choice but to use the universal (GPU only) block. However, the universal GPU only water block has its own disadvantages. We’ll discuss this further in the review.The fact is, there are no full-cover or limited water blocks for the mid-range graphics card, even if you own the GTX660Ti series. Consequently, most Ti cards are non-reference PCB designs and water block manufacturers are reluctant to provide any blocks for non-reference design cards.However, if you are the owner of the Asus GTX660Ti DCII or GTX670 DC II series, then you are in luck today. There is only one manufacturer brave enough to offer the full-cover water block for this non-reference design card, and that is EKWB.Overclockers, gamers and water cooling fanatics, meet the EK-FC670 GTX DCII block. The EK-FC670 GTX DCII is particularly designed to support most Asus GTX670 and GTX660 DrirectCu II lineups. A full coverage block support single or multiple graphic card configuration that utilizes high flow and micro-fins to provide maximum thermal performance.Read on to find out what this new cooling block is all about.

    TBH, first time I saw the CSQ design, I said hmmm....interesting. That was a main reason I requested for the sample, it's simple but unique design also.
    The design is starting to growth on me actually.

    I just got a word from EK regarding about the "Void" sticker, this is incorrect sticker was used. The warranty is still in effect if this seal broken or removed. A proper sticker will be replaced soon. Now you don't have to be scare to open the block for cleaning within 2 years of warranty.
