So yes, manufacturers may not be allowed to release watercooled GTX 690 cards, but 3rd party cooling makers can. If you somehow managed to purchase this card, and yet, one of the best designed cards seems ugly to you, then you might order new full coverage Koolance waterblock, VID-NX690 model to be exact. It will require additional $144.99 to overall GPU cost, but you will gain noiseless card.

Interesting part, Koolance says it will only fit to reference designed card. As far as I know there are only reference card available. So are non-reference GTX 690 coming? Unfortunately, this memo is added to every waterblock listed on Koolance shop.
Cooling block can be purchased here.
