VisionTek says that the custom liquid cooling block allows the Radeon R9 290 to be overclocked by as much as 24-percent, something that is just not possible with air coolers which have trouble just keeping the card at operating temperatures at stock clocks. Sweetening the deal, the CryoVenom R9 290 emits under 10dB of noise, ensuring for the most quiet Radeon R9 290 experience available on the market today!

Not only is the VisionTek CryoVenom R9 290 faster, cooler, and quieter, it's cheaper as well. With other R9 290 GPUs retailing for as much as $700, VisionTek has managed to offer the CryoVenom R9 290 for just $550. The card features a nickle plated block with acrylic top plate and fittings for standard G-1/4 fittings. For anyone looking for a liquid cooled R9 solution, this is the card for you!
