EK-FC8800 GTS Full Cover Waterblock

Conclusion

Conclusion

Well I must say that there is a lot to like about the EK FC8800 GTS waterblock. It's certainly won me with it exceptional good looks and performance. Admittedly, there were some issues with quality control at the beginning, but I'd like to assume that this is a once-off occurrence.

The EK FC8800 GTS waterblock is certainly a masterpiece in every way, and would make a worthy addition to an high-end rig without hesitation. The flawlessly finished copper block; the ability to change the barb orientation to to ensure compatibility and undeniable cooling prowess all make the purchasing decision so much easier. I can see what all the hype is about now.

If you would like to get your hands on one of these gorgeous examples of what a quality waterblock should look and perform like, then get in contact with the boys from SpecialTech, where they have them going for £ 52.39 , inc VAT 17.5% . For sure, the EK FC8800 GTS resides on the dearer end of the scale, but what is the price of perfection?

I have decided to award the EK FC8800 GTS the 'Innovation' and 'Recommended' award for producing such a fine example of a waterblock.

Woohoo, Intel's single-core Celeron's give AMD's Athlon 64 a run for their money.

For the price, it simply will not be beat. Intel is really gunning to keep the lead for a while.

I am anxious to see some head to head Barcelona vs. Core 2 Quad benchies.
