With AMD's Radeon RX 6000 and Ryzen 5000 promising to be a formidable high-end CPU+GPU combination, EK Water Blocks is anticipating many "pure AMD" DIY builds, and is giving final touches to a new line of full-coverage VGA water blocks, Socket AM4 CPU water blocks, and monoblocks for certain premium AMD 500-series chipset motherboards. The company teased renders of some of these products in the development pipeline. The VGA full-coverage block in particular borrows many design cues from the recently announced RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT reference-design cards. An illuminated Radeon logo sits on what seems like an acrylic top that has PV covering. The CPU block and motherboard monoblock feature large AMD logos. There are also radiators and Vardar fan variants in AMD's favorite shade of red, with branding on the impeller hubs. There's no word on availability, but at least those of you planning AMD-purist builds know where to look for liquid cooling gear.
