    EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to officially release the EK-FC7990 incl. Backplate, a Full-Cover water block for undisputedly hottest gaming graphics card in the world - Radeon HD 7990 - bundled with aluminum backplate.

    EK-FC7990 is a high performance full-cover water block engineered specifically for PowerColor/VTX3D/Club3D Radeon HD 7990 series graphics cards. This water block directly cools both GPUs, RAM as well as both VRMs (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC7990 water block also features a high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.

    EK also encloses the EK-FC7990 Backplate made of high precision CNC milled aluminium with black anodized finish. This backplate directly cools the memory IC on the backside of the circuit board as well as serves as an aesthetic add-on. Two-slot I/O bracket which replaces the original three-slot, in order to make installation of mutliple graphics cards easier, is also enclosed.

    Up to four EK-FC7990 water blocks can be interconnected using EK-FC Terminal system or other methods of interconnectivity.

    • EK-FC7990 series water block
    • EK-FC7990 Backplate
    • EK-FC7990 2-slot I/O bracket
    • Mounting mechanism
    • Thermal pads
    • Installation manual

    What about the HIS 7970 X2? Or if AMD decides to release an official R7990? :p

    I already emailed them and asked them. XFX uses its own custom 7970 PCB with three random differences that make the block not fit level.

    About time they ditched the hideous circles theme, now I kinda like this "new" look.

    today card coolers spread the heat inside the case, try to check your temps inside your case while gaming...

    I can vouch for CS, the block did indeed fit his XFX 7950 DD. Not sure if the standard 7970 block will fit a 7970 DD, but the 7950 block fits the 7950 DD just fine.

    Yes its not the version you are searching for.


    Now, I am glad the circles are gone... glad the issues with their blocks are "gone"... wish I had the money for the 7990

    The TDFC and TDJC are both Dual Dissipation cards. The TDFC is on a reference PCB, while the TDJC is not.
