Custom GTX 295/285 water blocks start to appear

Written by Slobodan Simic

Koolance, Danger Den and EKWaterBlocks

After our initial story that partners such as Zotac, EVGA and BFG are going to launch their watercooled GTX 295 and GTX 285 cards, some of the usual suspects in the world of water blocks have announced theirs. Danger Den and EKWaterBlocks did the GTX 295 water block, while Koolance showed both the GTX 295 and the GTX 285 blocks.

Danger Den was the first to show its GTX 295 water block and this one might end up on BFG's cards as these two have a history of working together. In any case, the water block is made out of copper and comes with Delrin/Acetal mid-plate and stainless steel hold downs. This one is still not available but can probably be pre-ordered for US $189.95.

Next up was EK WaterBlocks, with its four water blocks for Geforce GTX 295 card. All four are practically the same, the only difference is the material that they have used. The EK-FC295 GTX SLI - Acetal/Nickel, the EK-FC295 GTX SLI - Nickel-Plated, the EK-FC295 GTX SLI - Acetal and the plain EK-FC295 GTX SLI should be available soon and the price ranges from €124.96 for the base version all the way to €139.96 for the Acetal/Nickel version.

Koolance was last of this batch, and it has some of the best looking water blocks that we've seen. Koolance is also the first to announce its GTX 285 water block as well, and we showed you the EVGA one here. The Koolance GTX 295 water block features a copper base, acrylic housing and it really looks cool under some UV light. The GTX 285 water block is less appealing than the one for GTX 295 but it also looks cool with its copper base, acrylic lid and Koolance branded steel cover.
