Furthermore, with the base which is made of nickel plated cooper, the LCS R9 290X enhances thermal dissipating and anti-oxidizing ability, allowing temperature under 60℃ even under full load. PowerColor LCS R9 290X packages a high-flow 3/8" and 1/2" fittings (barbs) to maximize water flow with captured o-rings to prevent leakage.

Prices of the watercooled cards by powercolor have been quite decent in the past. In most cases they did not exceed the ones of other oc-cards + the price of the watercooler.

Depends where you live. In the UK the 7970 LCS retailed at £600 which was a significant premium. I eventually got mine at £520.

Real potential of R9290X to be displayd !:) The air cooler has a price but it is somehow not be deducted from the total price which says that the installation contractually given and are based on the price of the product is not adjusted.:(

Very smart move by Powercolor. Since most people would usually watercool a 290x , instead of having to buy the waterblock separately.. Smart Marketing

You don't need to watercool them Hawaiis to get the most out of them, but it's good to have options. Personally, this would be what I'd get if I'd be building a rig with a waterloop, since I've never built any from scratch.

If it does 1200/1500 on average without insane voltages (ASUS BIOS?), stays under 70 and costs 650 or so, tops, it'll be fantastic.
