EK Launches EK-Pro GPU Water Blocks for NVIDIA A6000 and A100 GPUs

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is now offering an enterprise-grade GPU water block for NVIDIA GeForce RTX A6000 graphics cards and A100 GPUs. These new blocks incorporate a CNC-machined nickel-plated copper base with a laser-cut stainless steel top for a robust metal cooling solution. EK-Pro GPU WB RTX A6000 - Nickel + Inox water block is purpose-designed for the RTX A6000 graphics cards. This water block directly cools the GPU, VRAM, and the VRM (voltage regulation module) as cooling liquid is channeled directly over these critical areas.

An Open Split-Flow cooling engine design is used, which proved to be a superior solution for GPU water blocks. It is characterized by low hydraulic flow restriction, which means that it can be used with weaker water pumps, or pumps running on low-speed settings and still achieve top performance. The jet plate and fin structure geometry have been optimized to provide even flow distribution with minimal losses and optimal performances even when used in reversed water flow scenarios.
The base of the block is CNC machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is laser cut out of industry grade stainless steel. The sealing is ensured by high-quality EPDM O-Rings. The brass standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for a safe and easy installation procedure. The included aesthetic retention backplate improves the looks of your graphics cards, as well as improves structural rigidity while providing passive cooling to the backside of the PCB VRM area.

The connection terminal for G ¼" fittings located on the backside of the water block enables optimal loop installation in restricted space.

We recommend that you refer to the EK Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match. We are checking compatible graphics cards and adding them to the database daily.

EK-Pro GPU water block for NVIDIA GeForce A100 GPU
EK-Pro GPU WB A100 - Nickel + Inox is a high-performance full-cover water block for NVIDIA A100 GPU. The water block directly cools the GPU, VRAM, and the VRM (voltage regulation module) as cooling liquid is channeled directly over these critical areas.

The base of the block is CNC machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is laser cut out of industry grade stainless steel. The sealing is ensured by high-quality EPDM O-Rings. The brass standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for a safe and easy installation procedure. For added stability and protection for the graphics card, the I/O plate is a part of the water block top itself. Meaning that the block replaces the stock I/O shield and adds more sturdiness to the whole assembly.

The connection terminal for G ¼" fittings located on the backside of the water block enables optimal loop installation in restricted space.

Availability and Pricing
EK-Pro GPU waters blocks are assembled in Slovenia, Europe, and are available for order through the EK Webshop.

Why would you water block a workstation card.. this is dumb like overclocking a workstation card smh

Getting lower temps is the only reason I can think about.

Density, making cards 1 slot.
For workstations with 64-128 gen4 lanes.... you can pack a few more in if you aren't burning slots with 2 slot cards.
Or now also have a 25-200gbit nic, as you aren't burning slots...

Would be great to have one for the A4000 (they had one for the previous RTX 4000), as it stands the A4000 is the best compact workstation gpu.

I don't understand it either. My build has an A6000 & a kingpin rtx 3090 and one of the reasons that I went with the A6000 instead of 2x 3090's is so I don't have to worry about water cooling 2 cards due to a shitload of heat while doing renders.
There's obviously a market for them or else they wouldn't bother making them, but I can't imagine who would be water cooling cards like this as its not really necessary unless you're overclocking it, which again, doesn't make sense since you would be better off just buying 2x 3090's and overclocking them.

Transfering the heat to a completely separate place, so the workstation room can stay cooler and quieter? Pretty valuable, if there are people working there.
