EKWB Prepping Water Block for Asus R9-290X DirectCU II OC

EKWB has started making a new water block for the Asus Radeon R9-290X DirectCU II graphics card. The full-cover water block, which will be known as the EK-FC R9-290X DCII, is designed to cover all the critical parts of the graphics card that need cooling.

The unit covers the GPU, VRM and memory, and will feature a high-flow design, meaning that it can be used in longer, more complex loops or in loops with weaker pumps. Using EK's EK-FC terminal system, up to four graphics cards can be used in a single system.

EKWB will sell three different versions of the water block, each with a different appearance. For those who want even more bling, a backplate will also be available.

EKWB has announced that the EK-FC R9-290X DCII will be available in February 2014, though there was no word on pricing yet.

    First we need the Asus 290X DCUII to be available. The Gigabyte Windforce is out but still have not seen the Asus DCUII on Egg or anywhere.
