I know inn initial reviews the gpx had two major flaws in the 290s, which were very thick thermal pads and estrictive flow. Have these issues been addressed? I'm a big fan of this concept. Just checking to see if these details were amended.

Do you really think, that Alphacool produce a cooler wich can`t handle the temperatures of the V-Rams and Mosfets if you OC your card? wink.gif




New GPX-Cooler, also for the Fury X smile.gif

What is the thickness of the new thermal pads? Glad to hear this was fixed as I was really excited about the product. Currently using a Heatkiller GPU-X with a 60DIY block. Yours seemed like a simpler option especially if doing it for clients.

Hey, i'm considering getting R9 290 M05 for my Windforce R9 290. Could you tell me are there any differences between this M05 and M01 reviewed on xtremerigs like different block or thermal pads? Also they supposedly are pretty restrictive for some motherboards. I'm using MSI Z87-GD65, will it be compatible?

Since the review they have added extra cut outs to the blocks to stop the issue the reviewer had. Although this review was carried out on a mATX board where the components are considerably closer together you will have no problems at all with your MSI Z87-GD65 thumb.gif
