EKWB has started the design process of a water block for Asus' R9-290X DirectCU II OC graphics card.
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.
