Currently, ASUS has two different designs of the of R9280X-DC2(T) series graphics cards and one of them being the initial versions, namely the ASUS R9280X-DC2(T)-3GD5-V2, extends full compatibility with EK-FC7970 DCII water block. On the other hand, the ASUS R9280X-DC2(T)-3GD5 has been redesigned hence it cannot offer compatibility right away.
Not that long ago AMD announced their FX-9370 and FX-9590 processors. The big thing with these processors was that the FX-9590 featured a turbo boost of 5 GHz. It was the first processor ever to have a stock turbo boost speed that high. Being that both of these chips have high clock speeds their TDP’s were quite high as well. Many people who purchased these chips installed them with a good closed-loop watercooler or installed a full water cooling system.
EK Water Blocks has announced that their existing EK-FC series water blocks are compatible with the majority of AMD Radeon R9 280X graphics cards that were recently launched. This is because the Radeon R9 280X is based on the same Tahiti XT GPU that was used on the Radeon HD 7970 and HD 7950. So many card manufacturers have simply re-used the existing board design, most commonly known as AMD’s reference design (109-C38637).
EK Water Blocks has just introduced the EK-MOSFET ASUS M6G, which is a new water block that is made to cool the power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module on ASUS’s Maximus VI Gene and Maximus VI Hero motherboards.
Bitspower released the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe full coverage water block back in August and now they are working on a second full cover block. The water block is going to be designed for ASUS’s Mini-ITX Maximus VI Impact. This block is designed to cover the Z87 chipset, CPU socket and the vertical VRM.
You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, ram overclocking, and watercooling! There comes a point in every water coolers journey that they suddenly feel the need to put a waterblock on every surface that creates heat. You can literally slap a waterblock on anything from HDD’s to fan controllers if you feel the need. Certainly then, one thing that can be water cooled is the memory (ram). Until recently which ram you could easily water cool was pretty much limited to Corsair Dominators. Fortunately for those with the itch, XSPC is here to help! With their Memory WaterBlock + Side Plate Set, you can get almost any ram on the planet wet. Follow along as we install and test just what this set can do for you!
Phobya has introduced a brand new case that is tailored to the needs of users who want to assemble systems with watercooling equipment. This impressive case is the result of a design contest that they co-hosted with bit-tech.net earlier this year. It is really cool to see a case that was designed by a user become a reality!
The manufacturer of the highest quality cooling gear, EK Water Blocks, has finally announced the release of its Full-Cover water block for the Palit Super Jetstream along with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 graphics cards.
While we’re certainly no stranger here at Thinkcomputers.org to XSPC’s watercooling products, what were about to take a look at is something we’ve never seen before. Also a first for XSPC is their big entry into the wildly popular tube reservoir market with the Photon 270. Unlike traditional tube reservoirs the Photon 270 has one big twist, a light tube down the center of the reservoir. Follow along as we check it out and see if this should be the next big upgrade for your loop!
EK has just introduced the brand new EK-Coolstream PE line of high-performance radiator which combines EK’s unique CSQ design with the latest radiator core engine. The 4 new radiators are built for 120 mm fans and are optimized for maximum heat dissipation across entire fan operational range so you will see exceptional performance at both low and high speed airflow operation.
