EK Debut Gigabyte Z87X-OC Series Water Blocks

Gigabyte’s Z87X-OC and Z87X-OC Force motherboards have been designed from the ground up for overclockers in mind. That said EK are catering to the needs of the hardcore overclocker with their latest series of water blocks. These are designed to cool the MOSFETs/VRM area and the Z87 PCH area, each with separate water blocks.

The “EK-FB Kit GA Z87X-OC” water block kit is a complete cooling solution for the Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC motherboard with a Z87 PCH water block and a VRM/MOSFET water block. The “EK-FB GA Z87X-OC Force” water block kit is a  complete kit for the PCH and VRM/MOSFET areas on the GA-Z87X-OC Force motherboard from Gigabyte. This is available in acetal or acetal and nickel varieties unlike the block for the non-Force motherboard which is only available in Acetal.

The Base of these water blocks are made from electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal material ( ornickel plated depending on the model and variant). The sealing is ensured by the use of quality rubber gaskets. The nickel plated brass screw-in standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for easy and trouble-free installation.

Pricing is as follows:

  • EK-FB KIT GA Z87X-OC – Acetal €79,95
  • EK-FB GA Z87X-OC Force – Acetal €122,95
