EK Water Blocks Radeon R9 Nano Full-coverage Block Now Available

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is excited to launch the true single-slot liquid cooling solution for AMD Radeon reference design R9 Nano graphics card. EK-FC R9 Nano directly cools the GPU, HBM as well as VRM (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-FC R9 Nano water block features EK unique central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance. Such system also works flawlessly with the reversed water flow without adversely affecting the cooling performance. Moreover, such design offers great hydraulic performance, allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps. Unlike the original cooling solution with a single 90mm fan that comes with AMD Radeon R9 Nano and takes up two slots, EK-FC R9 Nano water block will transform the R9 Nano into a stunningly beautiful single-slot graphics card! EK encloses a single-slot I/O bracket which replaces the original two-slot in order to make installation of mutliple graphics cards easier.
The base is made of electrolytic nickel-plated copper, while the top is made of either acrylic- or POM Acetal material, depending on the variant. Plexi variants also feature two pre-drilled slots for 3mm LED diodes. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure.

Additionally the EK-FC R9 Nano has been engineered with FC Terminal connection ports for up to four R9 Nano's on a single ATX form factor motherboard, thus allowing for trouble-free swap out and upgrade without any additional changes to the cooling loop.

I love how small this card is and seeing it in a single-slot form factor with a waterblock is even more impressive. I can't wait to see some creative folks with deep pockets come up with some cool case mods that take advantage of the power one or two of these cards can dish out in a tiny form factor. No doubt Nvidia sees the potential market and comes out with their own miniature cards once Pascal arrives.

I don't see the point of this product with the price of the Nano being what it is and the fact there's the X version which is almost the same size and it's less expensive. Then again, none of these cards are easily found for sale.

Remember, it's the same chip (unlike non-X).
I wouldn't be surprised if water cooled Nano beat X.

I don't think a Nano would ever match a Fury X, never mind beat it. It's the same fully-enabled Fiji chip but the Fury Nano's power delivery is capped at 175W compared to the Fury X's 275W. Even if AMD is binning their best chips for the Nano I don't think it can make up for a 57% higher power budget.
