Msi R9 390

Thue500

Hi guys and girls i have recently bought a Msi R9 390 and i want to watercool it as it runs pretty hot and i have done some searching for a waterblock that fits the gpu but with no luck i then i found alphacool where they can make a custom one for my gpu witch is nice and the best thing is that i live in Eu so i dont have to pay so much in shipping. But i just want to here if someone knows a place i can buy one as i can se it will take some time to make a custom one. And if you know a place to buy a 240mm radiator with pump. Thanks

Highflow is decent for watercooling components.

Unfortunately EKWB only makes one that makes use of the reference design of the 290/390 which I think only XFX's R9 390 follows. Alphacool makes an only GPU block so you would have to address the VRMs yourself.  :)

Thats the thing, active cooling is preferred where there is a heatsink and a dedicated fan to it, not relying on case airflow.
