aquacomputer kryographics waterblock compatibility

Saturday, June 28th 2014, 3:47am

Hi all

I am building a new water cooled PC and have purchased Aquacomputer Kryographics waterblock for R9 290X GPU. Can anyone tell me if these water blocks are compatible with all R9 290X cards or only stock reference cards. ie Will they fit the http://www.asus.com/au/Graphics_Cards/ROG_MATRIXR9290XP4GD5/ or the MSI Lightning R9 290X?

Thanks

Greg

They will only fit reference cards, and definately not Matrix, Lightning etc cards

Those cards use custom designed PCB's and have water blocks specially designed for them that only fit them.

Thanks again for the reply Jakusonfire.


I am now planning on using:

It says it is a stock reference PCB design.

Is there anyone else out there that has used the aquacomputer kryogriphics Hawaii waterblock and if so what card did you use?


thank you :schland:

No, The Asus DirectCUll cards are custom PCB designs and Aquacomp don't make blocks for them.

Edit: In general if a card will fit one reference water block it will fit another so, other brands have lists of cards that fit.

This isn't a guarantee though, and cards are sometimes revised by the manufacturers and are no longer reference.
