Errr....my understanding is that EK VGA blocks with a backplate are the best performing blocks VRM wise.

Maybe for the GTX 780s, but R9 290x is a whole 'nother world when it comes to thermal dissipation.

On a side note I don't see a reservoir there. I'd either get a microres or switch to rigid acrylic tubing. Tubing dries out, except it doesn't because it absorbs water from your loop to prevent it from drying out. Your coolant level will drop, and with no res it only takes a bit to give the possibilities of bubbles running through your pump. Air can cause a lack of lubrication for the ceramic bearing, and can damage it.

look at post#4. i have an ek block and my vrms are cooler than my core. that's with only a 120 rad and a fan.

And I'm basing mine off reported temperatures from testing of various waterblocks by a reviewer known to have accurate results.

No can do Z, it'll be here tomorrow. I should've said I ordered it a few days ago. I'll get it working even if I somehow have to fit another radiator in my case. But I do LOVE the look of the AC block, I just don't like the 40-50 dollar markup over the EK block, which is actually no slouch from the reviews I've read. It's just that the AC block seems to cool a bit better especially with AC's witchcraft-backplate.

Don't worry about it then, it'll still cool worlds better than any air cooling.

As the AC witchcraft backplate, now if only they weren't in absurdly short supply. I ordered mine in February. XD ETA was march 9th for the store to receive them. Then that was bumped up to march 27th, but then AC had an issue with the people who treated their backplates messing up, so they had to ship it back to them and have them retreat it. Now I don't know when the next ETA is, but shoggy has been good about keeping us in the loop so I can't be too upset.

GPUs are designed to run hot... The R9 290x's GPU is designed to run ridiculously, like boiling water hot. The VRMs? not so much. I mean yeah they can run hot but their efficiency is going to drop, and when their efficiency drops so is your overclocking potential drops.

It's unsurprising that your VRMs are cooler than your GPU, the GPU generates a LOT more heat. That's to be expected, but your VRM temps relative to what other blocks are running? Check out that link. The delta temps for the vrms on the AC w/backplate is literally half of what the other blocks are getting.

Its important to remember that Stren has not finished the testing. It seems to be only the backplate that makes a difference and could just be a result of extra thermal pads. There would be nothing stopping anyone covering the back of their cards with pads if it turns out that is the case.

There are two VRM temps, one stays relatively cool and the other is much warmer than GPU temps in most cases. Stren is running Furmark so is much more intensive than a game test.
