Product information: EK-FC R9-290X - Nickel CSQ (REV 2.0)EK-FC R9-290X is a high performance full-cover water block for AMD reference design Radeon R9 290X and -290 graphics card. Please check our Cooling Configurator online compatibility system for detailed compatibility list!
This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC R9-290X water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps. The cooling engine now uses refined, 0.6mm wide microchannel structure to even further improve the heat transfer.
Base is made of nickel plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality acrylic glass material. The sealing is performed by quality rubber washers. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure. Block is mounted with enclosed M3x4 DIN7985 screws.
EKWB recommends the purchase of aesthetic retention backplate (EK-FC R9-290X Backplate - Black) which improves the looks of your graphics cards and also provide some passive cooling to the VRM section.
Flow orientation doesn't matter and is thus not prescribed.
Up to four EK-FC R9-290X series water blocks can be interconnected with EK-FC Bridge & Link CSQ system. The EK-FC Link is already enclosed.
EK-FC R9-290X is also the choice of both PowerColor as well as VisionTek for their factory liquid cooled AMD Radeon R9 290(X) series graphics cards.
Rev.2.0 brings compatibility for previously unsupported MSI® and GIGABYTE® model graphics cards.
