Hey Jakob, What do you have for cooling a FX-9590 in a radiators?

It is now possible to install a preassembled LED-strip inside of the water block! These LED-Strips are compatible to the power supply of the graphics card. We even crimped the exact matching connector to it. Hence, it can be supplied directly by the graphics card, there are no more irritating cables.
The LED Strip can be controlled via the Nvidia Geforce Experience Tool. It can be dimmed, blink or pulsate. We offer the LED-strips as additional accessories in the colors white, red and blue.
No matter how fancy or great looking a full coverage water block is, if it is mounted inside a tower case you cannot see it without mirrors, so IMO, it looks great laid out flat but is useless bling in a tower case.
In previous versions like the polished stainless steel hole plates, the water block itself front side is beautiful, but once mounted in a tower case and the case is stood upright, you never see it anymore.
At that point to me I have to question was the extra stainless steel plate added to the water block worth the extra weight added to the PCI-E slot?
I would love to see Heatkiller add a nice looking backplate that tower case users will actually see.
Those leds would look great on a backplate and I mean a backplate that actually comes with the water block, not having to be bought separately.
There are a lot more tower cases out here than cases that mount the motherboard horizontally, of which the waterblock face can actually be seen.
My 2 cents.
These include very low restriction and elaborate cooling structure. The central flow design ensures even further reduction of restriction.
Yep, the backplate is black.That really is great news!
I'm a fan of a black frame with acetal. Hope the backplate comes in black as well with some etched writing based on the GPU it is cooling.
Like the fact that the LEDs will somehow be controlled from Nvidia's software. I just hoped the LEDs were RBG and you could pick a choice of color but can't complain. Also, if this was possible, something similar to other manufacturer blocks is if there's a illumination on the acetal in/out portion that can have a interchangeable plate so you can get a customized name of the GPU's manufacturer, product line and or a custom design on it based on one's themed build. Kind of like the Swiftech XL CPU block sold at PPC.
I will steer away from nickel though since I'm heard several times from folks having issues to a manufacturer that distilled and a biocide can have a negative effect with a nickel based loop. I like sticking with acetal, copper and silver based products. Haven't had one issue for almost 5+ years now.
Last but not least I will say, I might be eyeing you guys when and if they release a GTX 1080 Ti line as I'm looking to upgrade by than.
Can't wait and keep us posted.
No, this block cools only one graphics card. It can be connected to other cards via a SLI connector. I wanted to point out that our water block is compatible to the new layout of Nvidias SLI HB bridge.how exactly would these run in sli? is there a separate block that links these together? or just fittings and pipes between them?
That's an easy question Our MO-RA3 radiators cool everything you throw at themHey Jakob, What do you have for cooling a FX-9590 in a radiators?
I do get where you are coming from, but no, the restriction is atually decreased.I like the fact you have changed the die area design to forced injection over the center of the GPU die but that does seem like it would have increased restriction over the previous flow through design?
a small update with a couple of scetches and plans:
I recieved multiple questions about the LED illumination on the GTX 1080/1070 blocks. It is installed under the POM block on the edge of the waterblock like this:
And here are three pictures in action:

Nextup, we designed the alternative top for our HEATKILLER® TUBE reservoirs. It will come with two ports and look like this:
And finally, I wanted to tell you that we are currently working on a waterblock for the AMD RX 480, and will get to a waterblock for the GTX 1060 next up.
I'm afraid I can't help you there. This is a pic a customer sent in. He didn't provide any info on the tubing nor the fittings, so I wouldn't know...
The fittings in the 4th pick are Bitspower barbs. No idea what size naturally. If I had to guess at the tubing I'd say it's the EK tubing. With no clamps it looks like he undersized the tubing and heated the ends in hot water to soften them and squeezed them over the barbs for a nice tight fit.
Have you tried Enzotech? I have a few of their 45's and they work great with Primochill ADV LRT.
I know what you mean about the worm clamps. It's what I'm using right now. They do the job well, but man they UUUUG-Leeee. I think the Delrin clamps are the best looking but haven't used them yet.
HEATKILLER® IV for GTX 1080 and 1070 available
All versions of the HEATKILLER® IV for GTX 1080 and 1070 are now available, including the matching backplate.
The new water block features a slick look, high quality materials, excelent performance and offers even more: for example, it is fully compatible to NVIDIAs new SLI-HB bridge. Furthermore, we found a great new solution for illumination. We now have LED strips available that can be connected directly to the LED port of the graphics card. Not only is this reducing cable routing issues, but it's also possible to control the illumination of the water block directly through NVIDIAs Geforce Experience software.
Both the water block and the backplate are compatible to all GTX 1080 Founders Edition and GTX 1070 Founders Edition cards.

HEATKILLER® IV CPU series performs greatly in recent reviews
As in previous tests, our HEATKILLER® IV performed greatly in the latest two tests. We want to share those results with you.
The first test was from german hardware site computerbase.de . The testing staff was so enthusiastic about both the performance and the workmanship of the HEATKILLER® IV that they gave it their only buy recommendation.

The second test was done by reviewstudio.net . The HEATKILLER®IV reached top notes in this test, too, and recieved three awards.

We are currently working on waterblocks for the Radeon RX 480 and for the new TITAN X.
Oh god yes! I do realize that dyes look great, and I love to see them in Casemods and Showcases and the likes. But for everyday use? I would recommend to stay clear of them. Pretty much all of them leave stains, and a lot of them do clog up...LawShadow if you don't mind me chiming in, I would recommend avoiding any dyes in your loop. Many will clog up your blocks and at a minimum will stain any clear acrylic in your loop i.e. reservoir, block covers etc.
