EK Working on Radeon HD 7990 Full-Cover Water Block

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is working on a new Full Cover water block for the undisputedly hottest gaming graphics card in the world - Radeon HD 7990.

The upcoming EK-FC7990 water block will directly cool the both GPUs, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water will flow directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC7990 GTX water block will also features a very high flow design therefore it could easily be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.


Base of the water block will be made of nickel plated electrolytic copper while the top will be made of quality satin finish acrylic or POM Acetal material.

The water block will be available for purchase through EK Webshop & Partner Reseller Network by late January 2013.

Make it single slot so that is posible to fit 7 of these with board like ASUS Z9PE D8 and four 1250+W PSU's :laugh:. For password cracking etc...

Why EK?

I would imagine that the market for this thing is extremely small seeing as AMD isn't going to announce any support for 7990 cards. I would be surprised if they make any profits from selling something like this to the masses.

there going to want to use that top right bolt hole to ensure the block makes a good contact with the vrm's but those power connectors are going to make it a right PITA

I hope this does't create the same "demand" the 590, 690, 6990, and other dual gpu card's created, hardly any, I always see these blocks permanently on clearance online.

I agree; this block will become available just around the time the 8000 series is released, at which point the 7990 is irrelevant.

Anyone who has enough money to want Crossfire water cooled Tahitis already bought 7970s months ago; no one is waiting for a 7990 water block.

Is there a crossfire tab on the PCB? looks like one but designed a bit different.

I think it's because you can only cfx with one other 7990.

if you want password cracking just get FPGA or Asic hardware
