EK Water Blocks has announced what it describes as a 'revolutionary' new terminal for its full-cover graphics card water blocks, featuring G1/4" connectors which can spin in a full circle - hence the pun.

Designed for use with the company's existing range of full-coverage graphics card water blocks, EKWB's EK-FC Terminal Rotary 90° Black does what its name suggests: offers a pair of G1/4" connectors for coolant input and extraction which come out at a 90 degree angle to the graphics card while also rotation through a full 360 degrees - making it simpler, the theory goes, to neatly run fixed or flexible piping around your case.

The terminal is designed as a drop-in replacement for the stock version supplied with almost all EKWB's full-coverage GPU water blocks bar the original CSQ design models. The terminal block itself is finished in forged brass coated in non-stick polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and finished in black - though the company's calling out of the colour finish in the product name suggests other finishes may follow in the future if the black version proves a success.

Sadly, the ability to run your piping into the card from any angle comes at a considerable cost: EKWB has set a retail price of €24.95 (around £22). With existing rotating G1/4" adaptors costing less than £5 a piece, and two being required to complete the modification, the pricing of EKWB's terminal will likely appeal only to those who want an easy drop-in solution for an existing EKWB-brand water block.

More information on the terminal is available on the official product page.
