Need help with GPU! D:

Bombfish

I am going to build a mATX build with a R9 390. I am going to buy another one later along the road and I need a card that is 2 slots thick. What I have heared Sapphires cooler is 2.2 slots and doesn't fit :( Only 2 slots thick card I found is VTX3Ds :/

Does anyone have any experience with that card?

I am also going to watercool them afterwards.

Thanks in advance! :)

XFX Double Dissipation is 2 slots

Gigabyte looks to be 2 slots

But they dont have available waterblocks :/

XFX DD, PCS+ and Asus DCII have waterblocks available for them. Since they're using reference designs.

Xfx cards all have new inductors and therefore blocks doesnt fit :( PCS+ is 2.5 slots and no one sells asus DCIIs here

There was a specific rev of the XFX models that had new inductors. You will need to find older rev of the card. But you're gonna watercool them anyway, why does the size matter?

Bocause first I will buy single card, then secound, and after I get the money for custom loop, I will watercool them :) If I buy the loop at the same time I buy the card I would need to save extra 300€

Then why not just buy a 980 Ti instead of the 2 390?

Then you're stuck. The only cards with waterblocks available for them are those three.

Its a 2nd tier 390. From what it looks like, its was a 2nd tier 290 previously.
