Nothing like a fancy new waterblock for that high-end graphics card of yours. Feast your eyes on another of EKWB’s latest liquid cooling blocks for the flagship R9 290X graphcis card.

Apr 22, 2014 – EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana-based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce a new revision of EK-FC R9-290X water block for AMD® Radeon R9 290- and 290X series graphics cards. Rev.2.0 is functionally and visually identical to it’s predecessor but bring compatibility for previously unsupported MSI® and GIGABYTE® model graphics cards.

In order to simplify the search for suitable and compatible water block EK has already added new revision water blocks to EK Cooling Configurator database and compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on daily basis.

About EK-FC R9-290X: EK-FC R9-290X is an industry first high performance full-cover water block for AMD  reference design  Radeon R9 290X and -290 graphics card, first released on October 25th 2013. 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 while not sacrificing the famous low hydraulic restriction design. Made in Slovenia, Europe!

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.

The new revision water blocks are available in several different variants and are readily available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network.
