EK-FC R9-290X SE is a high performance full-cover water block for TUL Corporation / Club3D® customized PCB design Radeon R9 290(X) and -390(X) series graphics cards. Please check our Cooling Configurator online compatibility system for detailed compatibility list!
This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM 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 R9-290X SE water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps. The cooling engine now uses refined, more narrow microchannel structure to even further improve the heat transfer.
Base is made of nickel plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality cast Acetal material. The sealing is ensured by quality rubber washers. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure. Block is mounted with enclosed M3x4 DIN7985 screws.
EKWB recommends the purchase of aesthetic retention backplate (EK-FC R9-290X SE Backplate – Black) which improves the looks of your graphics cards and also provide some passive cooling to the VRM section.
A reinforcing frame (EK-FC R9-290X Reinforcer – Black) is also available as an optional upgrade and is recommended for single-card configuration users.
G1/4″ threaded fittings can be used on both sides of the FC terminal. Flow orientation doesn’t matter and is thus not prescribed.
Up to four EK-FC R9-290X SE water blocks can be used on a single ATX form factor motherboard by using EK-FC Terminal (DUAL, TRIPLE or QUAD type) system or other means of interconnectivity. Please note that EK-FC Bridge & Link system is not compatible with this water block.
