A Closer Look – GWB-C1 GPU Block

The GWB-C1 doesn’t have the easiest to remember name but Atlantis GPU Block does have an easier ring to it, so let’s go with that. The GPU block comes in a compact box which contains the instruction book, all the usual mounting screws, some adhesive strips, and the block its self; all come neatly packaged and protected.


The finish on the block is certainly interesting, with a chrome finished mounting plate and a sandblasted finish block. It’s pretty heavy, which is a good thing, as that tells us there’s a good amount of metal in the block, ensuring it is durable and hopefully helping it handle more heat from the GPU to transfer to our loops fluid.


It’s a compact block, much more simple than some of the full-size blocks you might have seen, and this has one clear benefit and downside. The benefit is that it’s widely compatible with almost all GPUs, the downside is that it doesn’t cool the VRM, so adhesive heatsinks may be required.


On the side, you’ll find two pretty standard 3/8″ fittings, where you can fit your barbs and then your tubing for your loop.


The base plate is very nice, with a large and thick surface to help cover your GPU, and this should help greatly in moving a lot of heat from your hardware through to the water chamber inside the block. Here you can also see the “T” shaped screw mounts on the corners of the mounting plate, these are to ensure compatibility with a wide range of graphics cards.


The block has a good depth to it, but not so much that it should interfere with any SLI/CF configurations.
