    My Nvidia GTX670 and AMD 290X both have AIO coolers on them, works great. I would do it to my GTX980 also but no one sells a VRM heatsink for it (yet).

    580 cooling was just fine, it had a much better cooler and ran about 15c cooler than my 480. That 480 ran very hot on the stock cooler.

    The card will likely be around $750 CDN to $800. and 649 to 699 USD.

    I don't wanna move from my cosmos 1000. It's lovely and made of metal. It was I thought going to be good enough for 30 years of upgrades. Guess I could just leave the side off.

    I don't blame you. Cosmos 1000 is just a thing of beauty.

    Then they'd dump the 390 into the $600 category. Honestly this **** all started as soon as the Titan was released. It was not a one off derp priced item at a niche market, its main goal was to jack up prices, mission accomplished. This is as artificial as HDD prices being kept high long after any shortage and damage was dealt with/paid for/out of the way.

    Is there anything out there these days with a price that's not artificially manipulated?

    Yes, a gtx970. 90% of the performance of a 980 for $200 bucks less.

    Well if it turns out that the r9 390/390X to be more expensive than the 970 and 980 and all ready have a r9 290 or a 290X in our rig already maybe we could add a 2nd r9 290 or 290x in our rigs and go for a xfire setup. Makes me wonder how would a 2 way xfire 290 and 290x would hold up against a single 390/390X at resolutions beyond 1080p like 1440p with all of the eye-candy turned on.

    This will seriously hinder Crossfire setups.

    Most if not all cases will be able to fit this cooler as most have a rear 120mm exhaust mount. But not all cases will have a front or bottom 120mm fan mount.

    Still I will be looking VERY closely at this card.

    You mean existing blocks for the 290X?

    I don't think so as I am sure the core it self has a wider surface area, that and the layout of the reference board has not been shown yet.

    I fits good cooler and some over clock i finally buy one card instead of two.

    2x 290x was awesome worth 1000 euros evry cent.

    But if the performance is very good with good cooling 1 card will do.

    Can't wait for 390x hope it all pans out well for AMD (i won't switch sides any time soon stick with AMD videocards and drivers are awesome) and AMD is most of time price friendly so they deserve my cash not greedy Nvidia losers.

    I can't see where this is a win/win situation for some of you? The fact that cooler wil take at least 50 dollar extra out of your pockets. And probably your energy bill will do that too! It does not matter to me , if a card is good, its good. If not then....uhhh, well.. We'll see.

    In the end its the price/performance ratio that counts, fact remains that watercoolers won't come cheap. Secondary is that when a card needs a watercooler, it will probably need a good powerdelivery as well, and that is expensive too.

    Funny to see that some comments reminds me of the GTX480 Days, but then exactly in reverse.

    Well the design, ram, pwm, core positions should be exactly the same... So i dont remember it have allready happend by the past..

    It still exist the universal waterblock, because in general the fixation ( holes ) position around the socket is the same. But for full cover waterblock, we have never seen it.. a slight change on pwm type, position and its over.

    Also, HBM might prove to have the PCB layout different, and maybe those HBM modules rise above the PCB higher than normal GDDR, thus they could prove to be troublesome. That's the reason why I wouldn't bet on any compatability.

    I have no clue about size of each HBM module, but 2.5D stacking can have it on interposer with GPU itself (if small enough). It may reduce card size and leave more space for VRMs.

    "wil take at least 50 dollar extra out of your pockets."

    if you wanted more than 3gb of vram on a full or only 1 cut down big kelper that would only cost $500 extra . so $50.00 is pocket change.
