Product information: EK-FC980 GTX - Nickel

EK-FC980 GTX is a high performance full-cover water block for nVidia reference (NVA-1G401) design GeForce GTX 980 series graphics cards. Please check our Cooling Configurator online compatibility system for detailed compatibility list!

This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC980 GTX water block features a central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance, which also works flawlessly with reversed water flow without adversely affecting the cooling performance. Moreover, such design offers great hydraulic perfromance allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.

Base is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality acrylic material. The top also features two pre-drilled slots for 3mm LED diodes. The sealing is ensured by quality rubber washers. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure. Block is mounted with enclosed M2.5 DIN7985 screws and allows for re-use of the original NVIDIA backplate.

EKWB recommends the purchase of aesthetic retention backplate (EK-FC980 GTX Backplate - Black or Nickel) which improves the looks of your graphics cards and also provide some passive cooling to the circuit board VRM section.

G1/4" threaded fittings can be used on both sides of the FC terminal. Up to four EK-FC980 GTX water blocks can be used on a single ATX form factor motherboard by using EK-FC Terminal (DUAL, TRIPLE or QUAD type) system or other means of interconnectivity. Please note that EK-FC Bridge & Link system is not compatible with this water block.

EK-FC980 GTX series product is also the choice of EVGA for their factory liquid cooled NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 HydroCopper series graphics cards.

EK Quality what more can you say

I have this fitted to a EVGA 980 superclock, its great quality and does the job at keeping my card below 50c even in furmark. in GTA V i never see higher than 47c even after playing for hours on end. only slight downside (and reason for 4 stars) i have spoken to EK about this is i have had to double up on thermal pads on some of the power chips due to it not quite touching them with 1 pad. so keep an eye when fitting. that being said its not a massive problem however if i did not notice it then i would have wondered why my card would have overheated/crashed. its not quite a perfect fit on the EVGA superclock but its 98% there. Just take your time fitting and keep an eye on where the contact points should be. I used IC Diamond tim and found this to give the best results. Infact over MX-4 it gave me 2c lower temps on this application. Not massive but that 5%ish cooler for just using that TIM with this block. all in all very happy with the block just keep an eye on those pads !
