EK Waterblocks introduces a new line of waterblocks for AMD's upcoming Radeon R9 290X graphics card.
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce world's first full-cover water cooling solution for the latest AMD® Radeon R9 290X, the new flagship performance graphics card.
EK-FC R9-290X water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC R9-290X water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
Base is made of electrolytic copper (bare on nickel-plated - depending on the variant) while the top is made of quality cast acrylic material or POM Acetal (depending on the variant). Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe installation procedure. The cooling engine now uses refined, 0.6mm wide microchannel structure to even further improve the heat transfer while not sacrificing the famous low hydraulic restriction design.
Up to four EK-FC R9 290X series water blocks can be interconnected with EK-FC Terminal which allows for hassle-free piping job. The product is available in five different variants, an aesthetic retention backplate is also available:
