VisionTek Adds New Models, Cooling Kits, and Bundles to CryoVenom Series

VisionTek Products LLC, (VisionTek), a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PCs and Macs, today announced the addition of new graphics cards models, complete cooling kits, and card/cooling kit bundles to its high-performance liquid cooled PC compatible CryoVenom line. To complement the CryoVenom R9 290 liquid cooled graphics card, the "quietest, coolest, and fastest" single AMD GPU ever tested by PC Magazine, and Finalist in the Best New Product - Computer Hardware category of The 2014 American Business Awards, CryoVenom Liquid Cooling Kits were developed in conjunction with EKWB to solve four major concerns of those considering liquid cooling:
  • Warranty. Modifications can void the warranty of a standard GPU. With a CryoVenom Liquid Cooling Kit, a system builder can still design and build a custom machine, yet enjoy the protection of a VisionTek warranty.
  • Compatibility. Designed as a complete solution versus separately sourced components, certified-for-use kits are available for the VisionTek R9 290, 290X, and 295X2 graphics cards.
  • Real World Use Tested. All components have been tested in actual use by the VisionTek Custom Shop team to ensure effective, high-performance liquid cooling.
  • Ease of Installation. Everything is included - including pre-test and appearance convenience items - and were specifically designed to facilitate a quick, hassle-free install.

Kits Feature Custom Drive Bay Installable Integrated Pump/Reservoir
At the heart of every CryoVenom Liquid Cooling Kit is a custom single 5.25" drive bay installable integrated pump/reservoir. This unique, two-in-one design eliminates the hassle of component sourcing and determining where to install them, as well as enables installation in a space limited chassis. The one-piece, industrial component quality pump/reservoir features an anti-vibration rubber mounting system for quiet operation, a 1000L/h high flow rate, and power management control of rotation speed through motherboard BIOS or a dedicated fan controller.

Improves Radeon R9 295X2 Functionality & Install Ease
While the Radon 295X2 reference design graphics card has been proclaimed by industry experts as the fastest and most powerful graphics card available on the market, AMD partner VisionTek once again found ways to make the best card even better.

In the stock closed cooling system configuration, the 295X2 uses two PCIe card slots and offers limited placement flexibility. By using a CryoVenom Liquid Cooling Kit, the 295X2 is transformed into a single slot card with better air flow for cooling running temperatures while now freeing up a PCIe slot. Because the CryoVenom pump and reservoir fit into a standard drive bay, placement challenges of the stock radiator and short length tubing are eliminated. Lastly, the GPU, VRM, and memory on a CryoVenom 295X2 are cooled for longer, more reliable uselife. The stock 295X2 cooling system only cools the GPU.

While market prices for the stock R9 295X2 range from $1500-$1950, the hand-built CryoVenom 295X2 is immediately available with a $1750 MSRP. Trying to build a comparable single slot, liquid cooled 295X2 would cost $1800-$2150 not including assembly time/effort, shipping time/cost, and likely would void the factory warranty. Complete CryoVenom 295X2 card and liquid cooling kit bundles are also immediately available starting at $2000 MSRP.

Card, Cooling Kit, and Combo Card/Kit Options for Any System Need
Whether a CryoVenom graphics card is add to an existing liquid cooled system, a CryoVenom liquid cooling kit is used with another brand of water block equipped graphics card, or a complete card and cooling kit bundle is desired, CryoVenom can be used to create the ultimate overclocked machine.

Prices of graphics cards may be lower because basically do not have a cooler and who is the manufacturer of these cards.?
Good move, EK. Worldwide, there are an increasing number of people who have realized the benefits of liquid cooling. Once you use water cooled you never more shall not abandon. But be careful, only one partially sighted breached pipe may cause a lot of problems. Good luck .:)
