EK UD7 Water Block Review

For the water cooling enthusiast this is also a no-brainer. The ability to add their motherboard to their loop makes perfect sense. They are mainly going for esthetics and will enjoy the added performance benefits as well. By B. Ramirez

As many of you are probably aware EK is one of the most respected names in the water cooling industry. They have a long history of producing really good products that enable extreme performance for their customer’s computers. They produce everything from fittings to full water cooling kits and today we will be taking a look at their new water block for the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 motherboard.

I have to inform everyone that this was the first time that I had ever attempted to water cool a motherboard. My reason for attempting this is due to the fact that I wanted to reduce some of my motherboard temperatures and attempt higher CPU overclocks. This was not an easy process and took several hours complete. Many thanks go out to FrozenCPU and Mark for providing the water block for review.
