While it has yet to arrive on the market, Aqua Computer went ahead and now offers the first waterblock designed for the AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics card, the AquagrATIx.
This waterblock will fully cover the main heat-producing part of the PCB, aka the obverse side of the PCB, including cover for the GPU, RAM and VRM in order to provide full cooling. Mainly made out of copper, the block features a stainless steel cover, obviously for the looks.
While the article is still in production, the estimated lead time is of 21 days. The waterblock will fit on the HD 7970 and 7950 and comes along the two standard G1/4″ threads for the inlet and outlet while the fittings have to be bought separately.
Now available for pre order, the AquagrATIx is priced at €89.90. As for the quality, well Aqua Computer is a German company, so that pretty much tells whole the story.
