Asus slaps DirectCU II cooler on R9 290X

Written by Fudzilla staff

Asus is teasing Radeon lovers with what could be the first custom R9 290X card. The card features an DirectCU II cooler, but we are not sure whether it has a non-reference PCB, too.

In any case the DirectCU II cooler should make quite a difference. Asus has plenty of experience and it has shipped the DirectCU II cooler on countless Radeon and Geforce cards, so performance should not be an issue.

It features two fans, but one of the fans also has a small blower that it supposed to channel air toward the rear exhaust vent. It uses massive 10mm nickel plated heatpipes in direct contact with the Hawaii GPU.

Of course, since this is just a tease, Asus did not reveal any specs. Asus does promise a consistent level of performance, lower temperatures and less noise – but that sort of applies to all custom coolers out there.
