EKWB Announces R9 290X DirectCU II Water Block

By - Source: EKWB | B 5 comments

You can now use an EKWB water block to cool your Asus Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II graphics card.

EKWB, a manufacturer of water cooling hardware, has announced its water blocks for the Asus R9 290X DirectCU II graphics card – the EK-FC R9-290X DCII.

This water block is built to cool all the critical components of the graphics card, including the GPU, memory and VRM circuitry. The block features a 0.6 mm microchannel structure over the GPU area for added heat transfer; it is built with the high-flow design in mind, allowing the block to be used in loops with weaker pumps or longer, more complex loops.

The block will be available in three versions: one with a clear acrylic top, another with an Acetal POM top, and the last with the original CSQ (circles) design on top. All of the blocks are built with a nickel-plated copper base.

Pricing sits at $145.93, with an optional backplate available for $36.68.

    Yeah, because everyone owns or can afford a 780/Ti. Good job Nvidia. How about the 750, 760, and 770?
