This is my first post, and thought this would be useful for people who are looking to water cool their X99 FTW K's.  I went ahead and bought the "Bitspower THOR EIX99 Nickel Plated Full-Covered-Block (Clear)".  It is listed as FTW and Classified only compatible, but this is not the case.  It fits the FTW K perfectly. The only "issue" is the PCIe Slot 1x is blocked by the metal bracket, but most users will have a GPU in the slot above which would probably cover the second slot.  I attached photos to show the setup.  Hope this info will be useful to some. (Update: I uploaded more clear photos) 
 
Also want to add that the Bitspower EF-X Summit Block can be used with this kit and its 100% compatible.  You just need to use the Square CPU block bracket that comes with the Thor EIX99 kit.  From my own personal experience you can pretty much order any of these monoblock parts separately directly from Bitspower's Online Shop. I have done it a couple times so far and it works out great.   

 
Model Number: BP-WBTHOREIX99FCBNPAC-CL
 
X99 FTW K (Fully Compatible, Second PCIe 1X Slot Covered, not an issue at all, you will probably have a GPU in the first slot)
X99 FTW (Fully Compatible)
X99 Classified (Fully Compatible)
X99 Micro (Only the VRM and CPU Block)

    Also wanted to add, that no modifications where done to the water block to make it fit the board.  Also want to mention if you want to remove a GPU from the first PCIe slot you will need to use a narrow rod such as an Allen key to push down the PCI slot release and then pull the card out.  This is because of the tight clearance between the Upper Monoblock and Chipset Block.

    Sorry, was trying to get them below the 500kb limit.  The originals where around 3mb.

    Thanks for sharing this kind of info.  

    Most get confused and don't realize two X99 FTW's are in the marketplace so this could be troubling for 3rd parties.

    No problem, I looked around for some time and stumbled upon this block, and I know there are not many blocks made for EVGA motherboards in general, and knew their are people in the community who would be interested in this.

    Also sent this info to bitspower, so they could possibly update the compatibility of their water block.   The model number for the block also is: BP-WBTHOREIX99FCBNPAC-CL

    Yeah no problem at all, I wanted to share this info, because I knew other people would want a full cover block for their FTW K.  Another thing I want to point out is that the screw layout for the VRM block is setup for the Classified screw holes of the board, all you have to do is unscrew the threaded washer caps and place them in the FTW position.  Here is a picture I got from Modders INC. review.  All you have to do is place the threaded washers in the lower spot and your all good, (FYI, The ones in the photo below are in the upper section).

    If you are looking for stock, I would try ordering from Bitspower's Online shop and theirs always Performance PC's, which is where I got my kit.

    Here is the second photo updated to be more clear, hope this helps.  This photo shows the whole kit fully assembled, with the top acrylic block that connects the CPU block, VRM block, and Chipset block.  Also you can change the block underneath to any of Bitspowers summit EF blocks.  I changed my acrylic one to the full Brass one.  The only thing with using a different EF block is you have to install the black metal mounting bracket on the EF block you want to use, since the one by default will not allow you to fit the CPU block in the socket.

    Here is the EF Full Brass block, with the mounting bracket from the acrylic block, all you have to do to swap them is take apart the blocks are reassembly them.
     
    As you can see you can use RAM blocks to with the Bitspower Monoblock and all it takes is some 90 Degree rotary fittings or just using some soft tubing.  I used 4x EK Rotary fittings with 2x 8mm EK Spacers on the Monoblock with ZMT tubing as the connections.

    Here is the EF Summit block taken apart, its very simple in design and only has 4 screws, so you really cant mess it up when putting the block back together.  The Black bracket in the photo is the regular EF Summit Bracket.  The one for the EIX99 Thor monoblock uses a square one because of clearance issues.  As I stated earlier if you want to use a different EF Summit block, you just need to take apart the block and use the square bracket that is mounted by the default with the EIX99 Thor kit.  Also you only need a 2.5 Allen Key to unscrew the block.  Hope this helps.

    Also if you are concerned about leaks or issues about a loop being "sealed", I highly recommend the Aqua Computer Dr. Drop Pressure Tester, it is a valuable tool and is a better option than using water or coolant to leak test a loop and crossing your fingers.

    Here is the square bracket I am talking about, all credit goes to Modders INC for the photo, they also did a review for this block.  This is the bracket you would use if you wanted to use with any other of the EF Summit blocks.

    Also I can only confirm this will work for the EF Summit, not the EF Lite, and EF X Summit.  The last two you would have to contact Bitspower for compatibility with the EIX99 Thor. 
     
    Works fully with the EF and EF-X blocks, just need to use the square CPU bracket.

    thats  a lot of info, maybe when you get a chance you should edit your original post, dont think you can delete posts unless youre a mod.   But definately appreciate the info.  Will be getting one and making some changes once all my new toys come in.
     
    Question:
    The part that covers the m2 slot between lane 5 and 6, does it prevent you from using that m2 slot completely? Or are you able to install an m2 ssd there prior to installing the cover?

    I am happy I could help,  Answering your question, you can install the M.2, if its no shorter than 80mm, (which is standard I am pretty sure) with the metal cover over it, since the 80mm screw slot is exposed and not covered by the bracket.  I would advise you to install the M.2 before you put the Chipset block on, because it will be a lot easier.  The metal bracket has plenty of clearance for the M.2 slot.  You can probably also install an Alphacool HDX M.2 Heatsink I bet too.  I use an Angel Wings PX1 M.2 Heatsink adapter on PCIe lane 6 since its much easier to access it and install it.

    thats  a lot of info, maybe when you get a chance you should edit your original post, dont think you can delete posts unless youre a mod.   But definately appreciate the info.  Will be getting one and making some changes once all my new toys come in.
     
    Question:
    The part that covers the m2 slot between lane 5 and 6, does it prevent you from using that m2 slot completely? Or are you able to install an m2 ssd there prior to installing the cover?

    So in the case of a drive failure, or you wanting to upgrade, you can remove and reinstall the M.2 with the block on?
     
    Also, that setup looks really great, have you ran ut yet?  I am really curious to see the temps.

    Or you can just simply cut part of the shroud over M.2 slot and solve whole conundrum created by Bitspower. I was exchanging some emails with BP why they designed it so weirdly. 
     
    I have two of those sets (Classy) and first I cut the shroud and then ditched chipset part and FCB top for universal block. There is too much hassle removing M.2, first GPU, RAM or battery if something goes wrong. And maintenance is pain as you can't drain completely blocks using just gravity. I strongly considering the same approach for second build. Practicality over form for me, always. Still I'm glad there is at least one company which made block for EVGA X99 boards. And its all what counts - even for me leaving half of set unused.
     
    As for temps. VRMs never get above 35C while with standard Classy radiator nominal idle temperature on summer day was 45C. Southbridge/chipset never move past 30C.
     
    Note1: I've used different thermalpads on VRM than default provided by Bitspower - 17W/mk by Alphacool vel re-branded Sarcon. These are extremely expensive pads, but also best in the business. 
    Note2: It's system from ModRigs. Many things changed (like removal of LEDs, changing storage a lot) since I've posted it, but block setup remains the same.

    The metal shroud never covers the 80mm screw point on the board, so I imagine you can unscrew it and then pull the drive out from the left.  I will attach a photo.  I have not ran the setup yet sadly, I am waiting for a few parts and I should have the system up and running soon, and thank you.

    For draining, since I imagine its going to be quite difficult, I am going to use an Alphacool VPP755 and just hook it up to the drain port and have it pull the liquid out, since the VP755 can be run dry. Edit: I wont be using the VPP755 to assist in draining since it wont work, guess I will have to figure something else out to get coolant out of the chipset block.   But for now that wont be an issue until a yearly coolant change. 
     
    Using QDC's now, problem solved!

    I don't know of any pump that can run dry before being destroyed.  

    Also, you should read up on the issues on that pump.

    I too was skeptical, but I contacted ModMyMods and they confirmed that the pump can be run dry.  The reason for this, I believe is because the VPP755 uses a different Impeller layout, its completely cylindrical vs the usual domed impellers.  It will be used outside the system and will be connected to a different PSU.  Thank you for the info and heads up.
     
    Lol, that was a dumb idea on my part, but experimentation never hurts, anyways I bough a syringe with a 47in tube to aid in draining, as for the chipset block, I could just snake it into the the upper block and draw the liquid out from there if I ever needed to remove the block itself. 
     
    QDC's system, fully modular, no need for syringe!

    Hello guys,
    does the PWM-block have standard G1/4 threads? I have the chance to get the Bitspower set very cheap. I'd like to try to put the PWM-block alone on my X99 Micro.

    Sorry, something went wrong. A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.

    Hello not sure what you mean by "PWM" block, do you mean VRM block?  If so, there is no easy way to verify this without physically trying it, your best bet is comparing the VRM block from the Thor EIX99 Kit and using photos of the two boards online (X99 Micro and X99 FTW).  Yes the VRM and all the blocks in the kit use standard G1/4 fittings, I am using some EK G1/4 ACF fittings and they work great.  I would either contact Bitspower and ask if the VRM block will be compatibility, or just compare photos of the layout of the X99 Micro and X99 FTW.  I took a gamble after looking at photos online of the FTW K and FTW layouts, I put them into Adobe Illustrator and made an educated guess that it would work, which it did for me.  Hope this helps and best of luck.   
     
    Here is two photo's of the Micro and FTW. 
     

     
    (UPDATE)
     
    Based on the photos it looks like the X99 Micro and X99 FTW both use the same VRM Heatsink, so my guess is the VRM block could work, but take my word with a grain of salt, like I said earlier, you will only really find out if you physically test it.  Another way to determine this is to unscrew the heatsink over the VRM's on your Micro when off course its disconnected from everything and check the screw layout.  The X99 FTW and Classified have different screw layouts for there VRM Heatsinks, so I am not sure if the Micro has its own unique screw layout or if it shares one from the other boards, best of luck.
