Koolance Announces its Radeon R9 290X-compatible Water Block

Koolance announced its Radeon R9 290X-compatible full-coverage water block, the VID-AR290X. If the upcoming Radeon R9 290 (non-X) ends up being based on the same PCB, it will be compatible with that card as well. Materials used in its construction include nickel-plated copper (primary block), nickel-plated brass (fittings), and stainless steel (bolts). Tops come in clear acrylic and opaque acetal options. The block features a micro-fin lattice over the GPU area, for heat dissipation. The coolant channel covers the GPU, memory, and VRM areas. Fitting threading is standard G 1/4 BSPP. The block weighs about 910 g. Koolance didn't finalize its pricing.
