Aqua Computer will ship to Australia for 34,90€.


Out of stock, but it's on reproduction.


Estimated shipping will be at 26.3.2014.


Hope youcells are not in super urgent mode? 

We can even help you with that shipping , so if you want our help, just PM us. helpinghand.gif  

 

Youcells don't need to know exactly how, Aqua Computer has done it for you. thumb.gif  


See the pictures (ENLARGE them) from their website link above for visual answer.



Also the earlier answer to that Stern's waterblock test review preliminary summary explains that. 

http://www.xtremerigs.net/2014/01/01/r9-290x-gpu-block-performance-summary/



Our short explanation:


The aluminium backplate of the Aqua Computer has a profile that takes direct contact(with thermal pads) to the videocard backside VRM modules, from where the heat goes then to the backplate (flowing case air also cools it down).


From the aluminium backplate the copper heatpipe will transfer some extra heat to the waterblock terminal input and output, from where the flowing water is cooling the heatpipe and then it(heatpipe) returns again to cool the backplate over the VRM modules...


That is the basic structure of that active backplate thermal loop.


And it's working! wave2.gif  

Hi and thanks again for the help.

I've contacted Aqua Computer and they don't have any VGA water block to fit the Gigabyte Windforce R9 290 GPU.
EK has these two that DO fit:
1. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_878_880_1501&products_id=25984
2. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_878_880_1501&products_id=26337

I don't know what's the performance difference between the Nickel and Brass/Copper plates.

As for the back plate you mentioned, I couldn't find pictures to show how a VGA back plate is coupled with VGA water block on the same GPU.

So if I would buy the Aqua Computer VGA back plate, I have no idea how to mount it and connect the pipes together with the VGA water block of EK.

The pump makes bubbling noises every once in awhile, but I think its more bubbles working themselves out. Will bleed it more later. Temps are now 36-40C at idle.

Sounds good. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

You brave soul!! lol Nice to see you get it all to fit. I was tempted to do an itx build with that mobo and am glad to know it clears.

I did want to mention this as noob as it sounds...Did you take the clear plastic film off of the copper plate? Im sure you did but you never know.

It's not as noob as you might think. I've rushed a build before and done it myself. redface.gif

Hey everyone!

I'm currently working on this build here. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/34YET . Right now, I'm using the Crosshair V Formula and AMD FX-8150 with the Liquid Cooler combo that came with it. I just purchased my GTX 780 Classified and was going to purchase the PSU but turns out it was out of stock @ SuperBiiz and Amazon is charging sales tax now for North Carolina. So I'm going to wait for either the PSU to go back into stock or for the H320 to go down in price. I seen it go down to 129.99 before. Hoping it goes down again!

All that said, I'm a pretty busy person so I don't have too much of the luxury to do tons of research. I tried searching up reviews and videos of the H320 but I can't find anything really. I eventually want to expand it and put both of my 780 Classy's under water. I wanted to ask if you guys think the pump will be enough to move the coolant through the two GPU blocks, the Swiftech plus another radiator and the cpu block. I've never done water cooling but I'd like to do it right. I know a lot of enthusiasts might scoff at the idea of using an expandable closed loop system but I wanted to get everyone's opinions on it's efficiency. I do plan to OC my i7-4770k to around 4.2-4.5 ghz (silicon lottery yay) and flash my classy's for extreme overclocks (1400-1500mhz) range hopefully.

Can the H320, with all of its tools, keep my system cool?

Edit: NCIX now has the H220 back at 99.99! Should I go for that instead? Money isn't an issue and I've got 360mm support for my case. Not sure if it would be sufficient enough.

Hey guys. My h220 arrived today!

It's a nice unit I must say. I've already spotted some minor details that definitely put it into the budget cooler category. Paint runs on the rad, swivel fittings look cheap, CPU block mounting is a little flimsy, and the backing plate I did't even use. The tubes are very long, especially in an XB! Have to trim them later on for sure. Fans have an inconsistent hum to them. Not sure what that is all about, but its not something I care about because they are getting replaced.

Now performance wise this thing kicks butt. At idle, temperatures dropped an average of 2 degrees. At 100% load temperatures dropped a whopping 7 degrees.

Before I was using a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer (120mm rad in push/pull)

Currently the H220 is in push w/ stock Helix fans. Can't wait to put my Cougar's on... whenever they get here!!

Anyway, i'm already impressed with it.

A few numbers for you...

i5-3570k 4.5ghz @ 1.145 vcore

w/ Thermaltake 2.0 Performer push/pull 2000 rpm fans

Ambient room temp of 19 (probably lower than this at my pc, as it is next to a window)

26-17-24-22 = Idle
59-62-65-61 = 100% load

w/ H220 push 1800 rpm fans

24-15-23-19 = Idle
53-55-58-54 = 100% load

Used IBT to load CPU

Could you guys show me where you mount the Swiftech PWM splitter?
I think I will buy this splitter (not the water cooling kit)

Where ever its conveneint in your case. The sata power conector and the wire going to your CPU fan header are of decent length (I want to say 12", but cant confirm right now)

There is sticky tape on the bottom of the splitter and 2 mounting holes for machine screws.

We wonder if they just gave the mechanical answer to your question.

The Windforce PCB layout is NOT OFFICIAL AMD PCB layout, and thus they(AC) can't OFFICIALLY support(warranty) that card.

The real support for that card is totally another thing though. There are no components that are direct incompatible in the surface area of

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_878_880_1580&products_id=25733

in yourcells Windforce PCB, we have visually checked that.

The Windforce PCB has few components that are different manufacturers components than in AMD reference card, but they are still located at the exact same point of the PCB and they use the same component boxing or even smaller than AMD reference card has.

The Magic R15 components on VRM module are little lower with their packing than the reference card 1007R3 R15 components. AC might want to cool them also, but because they are lower, the block can't do that, but then again in EK water blocks there are no direct cooling for them neither...

We contacted AC as well for the case... let's wait for their answer and our response to that.

I don't know what's the performance difference between the Nickel and Brass/Copper plates.


Absolute nonexistent, because both of them are mainly electrolytic copper plates, but the Nickel version has only very thin nickel surface on top of it to give it that shiny silver color.

There you have it. There the active back plate is connected with that AC water block on the same GPU.

Also at Stern's water block test, there is picture of card/block/back plate/fittings at his thread post of 12-23-2013, 07:57 PM

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?288109-Stren-s-R9-290-290x-Water-Block-Testing



Youcells probably can't install it for EK waterblock since the AC and EK might have different contact points and structure with their block in out terminal mounting.

That Stren might try out that later, so answer could come to that from there. You could also ask it from themcells on that Xtremesystems.org thread, they have both EK block and AC active back plate. 

Also. Don't worry, the AC back plate has instructions how to install it. :thumb: 

Let's still wait till the AC has answered for our technical inquiry. :typer:
