Question about EK GPU waterblocks for R9 270 OC edition.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have the R9 270 OC edition GPU and i was on the EK website looking at waterblocks for it. all i see listed are 280x/290x. There is not any 270/280/290 or 270x. So my question is will a 280x waterblock fit my 270?

I doubt it will, completely different GPU chips and most likely a different board design. You could use a universal block with vRAM/VRM heatsinks.

Most people don't bother WCing a low-end card though.

yes it probably wouldnt matter for my 270 but i was wondering if it could fit the same in case i want to upgrade to a 280/290 in the future. it would be great if they were all universal but im not too serious about it now so it not a big deal. thanks tho

Almost no full cover blocks will be able to be used on another card. Unless its like 6950->6970 or 780->Titan, where its the same GPU core and same reference PCB.

The 270 will most definitely be a different PCB from the 280 or 290.

i also have a r9 270 and i'd want it just because i have a plan to WC my cpu, so i'd want to connect it to my gpu on the same loop, even though it may not necessarily need it.

tbh I don't think you'll have much luck, probably have to fit a universal one.
