Diamond Cooling has said that, “We have changed the design internally slightly after initial testing. But this block has good cooling performance. We expect to be taking pre-orders very soon. We do this to get a certain idea of how big the demand is so we can create a first batch”

The full-cover water block will cool all of the components on the card and will allow for a very impressive factory overclock and even more overclocking headroom after that. These are the first prototypes and they will come in both a full copper base version and a nickel-plated copper base version.

– Microfin cooling solution
– ACTIVE cooling of ALL components
