Pictured below is a VisionTek R9 290 using a watercooler custome designed by EK Water Blocks for a limited edition of CryoVenom R9 290 LE and gives this build some serious GPU power. As this system build is being done by Silent PC Review a generic pump is not going to cut the mustard and instead they chose the Swiftech MCP655 PWM for its low noise while operating. To cool off the i7-4790K a VisionTek/EK Supremacy waterblock was chosen as IK produces very high quality parts. To house the build a Phanteks Enthoo Luxe was chosen for it space and the ease of installing a radiator as well as its clean overall design. Check out the full build over at SPCR.
"Our seventh article in this season's new quiet gaming PC build guide series is our first complete discrete liquid cooled system, featuring the VisionTek CryoVenom R9 290 Limited Edition Graphics Card. This 450W beast of a system gets tamed to a cool, soft purr."

It is interesting jow SPCR have evolved.
10 years ago it was all: semi passive coolibg with one undervolted K8 cpu and a Scythe Ninja. Only fan was an undervolted Nexus 120 mm and a Seasonic 350W psu.
I used to talk about push pull fan congigurations and such but that was not kosher there. Look now Push pull fan configs are practcally the standard over there and now even watercooling, which was an extreme no no..
