The AMD R9 300 series still isn't technically announced, but that doesn't mean the rumors and unofficial confirmations aren't going to stop showing up. We have something new concerning the new flagship video card, the R9 390X, and it seems to confirm it will be featuring a liquid cooling system built right in. According to the latest leak, the AMD R9 390X features a liquid cooler from Cooler Master to keep the Fiji XT core from being overwhelmed. The liquid cooler is an Asetek model that Cooler Master is licensing, and features a closed loop design and a 120mm fan. Now, the fan and radiator may be right on the 390X, or the rad may be a separate attachment like it is with the R9 295X2. We'll just have to wait and see in that regard. AMD's partners may opt to go with an air cooler on their version of the R9 390X, but those air coolers will have to be fairly robust to compete with the reference card's liquid cooler.

If you're wondering when you can get your hands on an R9 390X, you may not have too long to wait. We may still get the official announcement this month about the R9 300 series, with a launch coming later in March or April. A demonstration of the new cards could also come during March 2 through 6 at GDC 2015, with a soft or hard launch right after. Hopefully we get some confirmation one way or the other, as well as how much we need to drop to get an R9 390X.
