PowerColor created the LCS line to meet the needs of the most extreme gamers. The most demanding gamers need a cooling solution that can keep up with their demands. We know not all enthusiast gamers are created the same. That's why our LCS line is the most flexible VGA liquid cooling solution on the market.

Re: Water Cooled Radeon HD 4890

PowerColor’s LCS HD4890 has a full water block mounting on the card, fully covering memory and power regulator chip. With copper based design, it is able to reduce temperature up to 20°C compared with reference version. Furthermore, the PowerColor package includes high-flow 3/8" and 1/2" fittings (barbs) to maximize water flow with captured o-rings to prevent leakage. Gamers can easily build up their own liquid cooling system using these two fittings.

Re: Water Cooled Radeon HD 4890

I dont get why companies dont get rid of the pointless dual PCI bracket on cards like this.

I appreciate it is a reference board so probably comes pre-attatched, but does it really take much to replace it with a single slot one?

Re: Water Cooled Radeon HD 4890

The HD4890 cooler is far more substantial than anything you'd find on an HD4850, so going to WC'ing is not going to result in such a substantial temperature drop.

But I'm sure this is all well known blather anyways.

Regardless it's a nice touch for the niche group of WC'ers looking for a no hassle drop-in upgrade.
