Dongwon Innovates Modular Full-Coverage G200 Series Water-Block

Relatively unknown to the west, yet popular in the Asian OEM and retail markets, Chinese component cooler designer Dongwon has innovated a modular full-coverage design for its water-block which boosts its compatibility. The block serves as a simple answer to NVIDIA's almost ever-changing reference PCB design for its single-GPU GeForce GTX 200 series accelerators. The design allows this water-block to fit the P651 (65 nm GeForce GTX 260 and GTX 280), P654 (first versions of 55 nm GeForce GTX 260 and GTX 285), and the newer P897 PCB design for the 55 nm cards.

The full-coverage block consists of two segments: the main unit which provides coverage for the GPU, the memory and the NVIO2 processor; and the second segment that covers the VRM area. The segment's grooves are designed to cover the LFPAK VRM arrangement on P651 and P654, while it can be detached to allow the rest of the block to be used on the P897. We're not entirely sure if the design concept circled around compatibility with different PCB designs, though it ends up being the block's most useful application. Although the company has seemingly no presence in the western retail channels, one can expect this block to come factory-fitted on graphics cards.
