Working closely with ASUS’ graphics card engineering team, EK has yet another water block for ASUS cards: the Strix GTX 980 Full Cover Waterblock. Dubbed the EK-FC980-GTX, the high-performance, full-cover water block cools all the critical components including GPU core, GDDR5 memory and VRMs (voltage regulation modules).

We test the G771JM and G551JM; ROG’s ‘mainstream’ 17-inch and 15-inch gaming laptops with an Intel Core i7 4710HQ processor and Nvidia GTX 860M graphics to root out the best playable settings.

HardOCP certainly doesn’t do things by halves, and to say that they put the latest Rampage V Extreme review is somewhat of an understatement. Read it for yourself. That’s why we’re particularly pleased about receiving the Gold Award recently! Here’s a small clip from the conclusions, but we urge you to read [...]
