    Default Aqua Computer Announces Radeon R9 295X2 Full Cover Block

    For those who have already broke the bank and went out and got an AMD R9 295X2 and want a better cooling solution Aqua Computer has just announced a full cover block for the dual-GPU card. The block will be called the kryographics Vesuvius and it will cover both the GPUs, all RAM chips, voltage regulators and the PCIe bridge chip.



    The block is made in Germany and milled from 2.72kg high-purity electrolytic copper raw material. Both GPUs are covered by a micro structure with a 0.5 mm grid. The water flows through both structures in parallel which allows an even temperature for both GPUs. To achieve this effect the cooling structures use a different depth which makes sure that the same amount of water flows through both of them.



    For an easy installation the block comes with preassembled distance pieces so the screws can be tightened as far as they will go to achieve an optimal contact pressure. The block can be used with regular G1/4″ fittings and the connection terminal offers threads into both directions. The regular connection terminal can be also exchanged with the optional kryoconnect adapter which can be used for Crossfire setups. To honor the GPUs and graphics cards codenames the block also features a little map of Hawaii which is integrated into the flow path and a little engraved volcano can be found on a stainless steel insert.


    The block with a copper base is available for 169.90 Euro while a nickel plated variant will follow soon for 184.90 Euro. Both variants will be also available with a smoked Plexiglas top.


    Those who look for the ultimate cooling experience will be also able to purchase a passive and active backplate. They will be available later in May; prices are TBA.

    If I had just spent 1500 bucks on a video card, I would cringe putting a block on it and screwing up my warranty.

    Oh yeah! I agree!
    And I'd love to ~have one~ to ruin the warranty on too.
    I'm sure that I would in time.

    I wonder if their cooling is really up to snuff, or if people will have problems with heat.
    Buying into gear like this is known as being on the "Bleeding Edge".
