Heatkiller V Pro for GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition

The new HEATKILLER V PRO graphics card coolers for Nvidia’s RTX 4090 Founders Edition have been specially developed to cope with the high power dissipation of 450 watts and more. In order to achieve the necessary performance increase, the German manufacturer decided to introduce a modular high-performance bottom plate as well as implementing existing proven technologies.

To increase the cooling performance in the GPU core area, Watercool relies on a modular high-performance base plate. Due to a fine-slit fin structure and the resulting increase in the cooling surface, this ensures a significantly higher cooling performance compared to a monolithic design. At the same time, the German manufacturer has optimized the fin structure in order to achieve a high flow rate as well. The distances to heat-relevant components were kept tight, which means that the heat of the thermal problem zones like GDDR6X Ram and voltage converters can be dissipated ideally.

Dual Layer Inflow and Symmetrical Cooling Design
The technologies already known from the HEATKILLER V, such as the dual-layer inflow and the symmetrical cooling design, have also been adopted for the PRO version oft he new cooler. Due to the split inflow and the symmetrical, wide flow channels, a constant high flow rate is achieved.

Selected high performance thermal pads for GDDR6X
According to Watercool, the development department has invested a lot of time into finding the ideal thermal pads for the hot GDDR6X RAM. Accordingly, special high-performance thermal pads are included in the scope of delivery.

Design-integrated lateral connection threads
The connection threads integrated into the side of the design are unique. The screwless cover and the black backplate in combination result is a cooler that looks like a single unit. The sophisticated design also conceals all electronic components.


  • High Performance Base Plate
  • Selected high performance heat conduction pads for the GDDR6X RAM
  • Dual Layer Inflow
  • Symmetrical cooling design
  • Design-integrated connection threads in the terminal
  • Screwless design
  • Insulating spacers made of high-performance plastic (Peek)
  • Plug-in system for aRGB strips
  • CNC cut thermal pads

Backplate and aRGB in one package
The new HEATKILLER V PRO integrates the backplate into the assembly concept. Not only does the black backplate ensure a better distribution of forces around the cooling block, it also further enhances the unique design of the cooler.

The pre-installed aRGB strips now use a modular plug-in system. The high compatibility ensures that the HEATKILLER V Pro can be integrated into almost all lighting concepts.
