Default EK releases Water block for the ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II

I have seen that EK has released a waterblock for the ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II, I was trying to find some reviews on this but so far I have fond none.

EK-FC780 GTX DCII - Nickel (Original CSQ) - GeForce GTX 7x0/Titan Series - Full Cover for Nvidia GeForce - VGA Blocks - Blocks

EK-FC780 GTX DCII Backplate - Black

Anyone know or heard anything about these waterblocks and if they are good? Will a waterblock on this card change anything except for the temps - as from what I have heard then even the EVGA hydrocopper cards dont OC that much higher even under water...

So... opinions?

Considering how cool and quiet the DCII is... I don't see the point.

Are there ways to increase voltage of the DCII past 1.21V? If not then not really. If so then yes.

What temps would you expect with a water block from EK?

I believe there is a way but it would be probably a hacked Bios at the least. Warranty voiding I would bet.

If you want to go that route I would look at EVGA classy.
