In the past, water coolers bought a waterblocks for a specific GPU hardware, making it impossible to upgrade your GPU without also requiring a new GPU water block. 
 
Now EK is taking a very different approach, by creating a new series of water blocks that are designed to be compatible with all of Nvidia's Founders Editions GTX 10-series GPUs, which includes the GTX 1060, GTX 107, GTX 1080, GTX 1080 Ti and the Pascal Titan X and Titan Xp.  

This new approach to water block design allows buyers to have some upgrade room with their water block purchase, allowing users of GPUs like the GTX 1060 FE and GTX 1070 FE to upgrade to higher-end hardware like the GTX 1080 Ti, without the need to purchase a new water block.

With the announcement of this new GTX 10-series Founder Edition water block, all previous Founders Edition water block designs will be discontinued. EK's new FE edition waterblock function on all reference GTX 10-series GPUs, so it makes sense to stop making their older water blocks given their more limited compatibility/userbase. 

Below are the prices of EK's new FE series of water blocks, which are compatible with all GTX 1080, 1080 Ti and Titan X series backplates.

yep and I find it ugly. Its a big eye sore when I see a GPU with EVGA, MSI, GEFORCE GTX, ALPHACOOL etc etc plastered on the side.

Up to now that is why I love EK waterblocks, because they didnt feel the need to emblazon their logo or AMD/Nvidia on the inlet block... at least until now.

It's all very tacky to me. And as much as I love the quality of the EVGA products, I find their logo when slapped on their GPU the worst of all especially when they feel the need to tell us what version it is. "Superclocks OC2" "FTW3". I guess in future I will switch to bitspower gpu blocks then. Now that EK are sponsoring logos. It feels like its got to the point that they need to use immature model naming to keep people interested.

As far as mobo go at least EVGA hold the title for me as most attractive aesthetics there, but for GPU, Nope!

Now we get to add EK to the poor design group. I hope B negative wasn't part of the design Always thought he had good taste. Maybe EK can redeem themselves if that side section can be removed.Quote

Actually from the last time they did this to the 1080ti block the extra plastic with the text is optional.Quote
