EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing a new Full-Cover water block, designed and engineered specifically for MSI® RADEON™ R9 390X GAMING 8G graphics card – the EK-FC R9-390X TF5.


EK-FC R9-390X TF5 is a high-performance Full-Cover water block, intended to replace the original TwinFrozr Vcooler that comes with the graphics card out-of-the-box. The EK-FC R9-390X TF5 actively 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.

The base is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal or acrylic (depending on the variant). Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe installation procedure.

EK-FC R9-390X TF5 water block features EK unique central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance, which also works flawlessly with the reversed water flow without adversely affecting the cooling performance. Moreover, such design offers great hydraulic performance, allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
