Koolance Also Launches a Radeon R9-290X Water Block

Koolance has launched its water block for AMD's new graphics card -- the Radeon R9 290X. The water block, which is codenamed the VID-AR290X, is made out of copper, and features a nickel-plating for extra protection. The water block covers the GPU, VRM and memory.

Included in the standard kit are a number of pre-installled spacers, stainless steel bolts, and nickel-plated brass fittings. The fitting threading is the standard G 1/4" size. Sadly, as yet there is no image available of the water block.

At the time of writing there was no word on what the water block would cost, though it will be available with either acrylic or acetal tops.

    I would love to see what sort of performance you can coax out of a 290X with a water block, especially in crossfire where heat was a major problem

    Linus at LinusTechTips said at release of 290x that he already had a waterblock ordered from Koolance, I'm sure he will have a video of its performance compared to a watercooled 780 in the coming couple of days.
