- Electrolytic copper base is clad with a chrome appearance-like nickel plating to prevent corrosion while the precision cut acrylic top provides effective and quiet fluid flow.
- CNC machined black anodized aluminum backplate protects your card’s sensitive circuit board components during installation handling while also providing additional passive cooling for the VRM.
*The VisionTek CryoBlock fits all reference-design Radeon R9 290 and R9 290X graphics cards. It will not fit non-reference models. If you are unsure if your graphics card is a reference design or not, please contact your card manufacturer direct.
**In addtion to the waterblock, you will need to complete your liquid cooling system with a reservoir tank, pump, radiator fan, coolant, and coolant tubing, all of which must be purchased separately.
Important notes: The use of a silver biocide additive in a CryoVenom liquid cooling system is not recommended and may void your warranty. Additionally, removing the fan from your graphics card and replacing it with a liquid cooling block may void your warranty with your graphics card manufacturer. If you are concerned about voiding your warranty, please contact you graphics card manufacturer direct.
