EK-FC R9(280X)/7970 DCII is a high performance full-cover water block for engineered specifically for ASUS design Radeon R9(280X)/HD7970 DirectCU II series graphics cards. Please check our Cooling Configurator online compatibility system for detailed compatibility list!
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(280X)/7970 DCII water block also features a very high flow
design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using
weaker water pumps.
Base is made of electrolytic copper while the
top is made of quality acetal material. The sealing is performed by
quality rubber washers. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and
allow for safe, painless installation procedure. Block is mounted with
enclosed M3x4 and M3x6 DIN7985 screws using original aluminium
EKWB recommends the purchase of aesthetic retention backplate (EK-FC R9(280X)/7970 DCII Backplate - Black) which improves the looks of your graphics cards and also provide some passive cooling to the VRM section.
Due to the size of the circuit board, the fittings (not enclosed!) can be used only on one side (plastic) of the water block.
also encloses two-slot I/O bracket which replaces the original
three-slot, in order to make installation of mutliple graphics cards
Up to four EK-FC R9(280X)/7970 DCII series water blocks can be
