Thread title has stars and everything. So I worked hard this afternoon and watercooled my R9 290X. I have some initial results which I think are promising. Firstly my setup, triple EK rad, XSPC bayres + pump, EK CPU block and EK GPU only block.... yes GPU only. I know a friend has already called me a loon for trying this. The loop goes rad -> cpu -> gpu -> bayres/pump. Here is a picture with a water block: I have added Alpenföhn heatsinks to everything that was cooled by the reference heatsink. No pictures of that yet - was too eager to test! Due to having a massive Xigmatek Elysium case there is a nice 200mm side fan blowing directly onto the card with plenty of other cool airflow from other various fans. So quick test with initial results, I played some BF3 for a while and then dropped to window mode to take this screen shot: Spoiler Initial results are very promising! Next up is to get the ASUS bios on it and shove more volts up its backside. It is a while since I have forayed into this area, what is the best tool to up the volts and clocks for a 290X?
