Last week AMD launched the highly anticipated R9 Fury X graphics card, and it wasn't long before we saw the first water block announced for the card. XSPC didn't take long to respond with a glimpse of its own offering. On June 24 XSPC showed a glimpse of its Razor R9 Fury X water block on its Facebook page, simply stating that the block is in production.
The block is built from a solid piece of machined copper as the base, and stainless steel top. XSPC claimed the use of the steel top allowed for an acrylic top with 3 mm holes for LED lights without sacrificing strength. The acrylic top is covered with a brushed aluminum faceplate, leaving only the edges lit when LEDs are used. The design is cribbed from the company's RayStorm CPU block series.
The block measures 177 x 131 x 30 mm and is designed to cover the entire card, and it actively cools the VRMs in addition to the GPU and HBM memory. XSPC has also included seven G 1/4" ports, which should give you options for every possible tubing configuration, as well as multiple GPU setups. There are two ports on the top, two on the front, two on the back, and one side exit port.
XSPC told us that the block should be available for purchase in approximately one week. XSPC doesn't set suggested sales prices, leaving it open for retailers to decide, but the company did say that it expects to see Razor R9 Fury X blocks for $130.
