EK Water Blocks TITAN Full Cover Block Kit Review

Cooling/VGA & Other Cooling by leeghoofd @ 2013-07-18

The Nvidia TITAN card is one serious monster gaming graphics card. Maximum performance awaits you if you are able to pay the atmospheric price tag. For those that want the fastest single GPU graphics card at the moment, this is the right one for you. But it's not all roses here for Nvidia's fastest GPU. The TITAN card is seriously limited by an average power design, allowing almost no extra headroom for that little extra crunching power. Secondly the stock heatsink is also running on its toes to keep the card just below throttling temperature. The latter is where watercooling comes to the rescue. Slovenian EK Waterblocks was so kind to send us one of their full cover block TITAN versions bundled with the backplate. A newer XL version of this full cover block also has popped up in the EK online shop. Time to unpack one of EK's marvels.

This is what EK has to mention on their website about the Titan FC waterblock:


Product Description

EK-FC Titan is a high performance full-cover water block for nVidia reference (NVA-P2083) design GeForce GTX Titan series graphics cards. Please check the  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-FC Titan water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps. The cooling engine now uses refined, more narrow microchannel structure to even further improve the heat transfer.

Base is made of nickel plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality cast acrylic material. 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 M3x4 DIN7985 screws.

EKWB recommends the purchase of aesthetic retention backplate (EK-FC Titan Backplate - Black) which improves the looks of your graphics cards and also provide some passive cooling to the memory IC.

G1/4" threaded fittings can be used on both sides of the FC terminal. Flow orientation doesn't matter and is thus not prescribed.




Traditional EK WB package with white and orange accents. Providing a solid protection for the included waterblock. Take note that cooling paste is not included with this kit.



The nickel plated version we tested is a true marvell to look at. For our block version there also exists the plain copper and the black acetal versions. EK recently has introduced an XL and SE version of this block; the latter will outphase the reviewed FC block. For more info plz check the online store at EKWB.com

Back to our Nickel plated EK-FC Titan block.







Excellent CNC machining by the Slovenian EK crew, one of the reasons they won the hearts of many watercooling purists.
