EK Water Blocks, the leading premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing two EK-Vector Radeon RX 5700 +XT water blocks that are compatible with reference design AMD Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT graphics cards. This efficient and elegant-looking cooling will allow your high-end Navi graphics card to reach higher boost clocks, thus providing more overclocking headroom and more performance during gaming or other GPU intense tasks.

This water block directly cools the GPU, 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, and VRM (voltage regulation module) as cooling liquid is channeled directly over these critical areas. These newly developed water blocks feature a redesigned cooling engine that has a larger footprint compared to the previous generation of EK Full Cover water blocks. This results in a larger surface area for heat transfer which increases the thermal performance of these water blocks.




The base of the block is made of high-grade copper or nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of high-quality acrylic material or black POM Acetal material (depending on the variant). The entire plexi covered block is lit up with RGB while the acetal version is implementing RGB in the aesthetic white corner piece. The top material does not affect the block performance in any way. The block also features a special plastic cover over the block Terminal which is also lit with RGB. This add-on is designed to reveal the graphics card model, visible from the side. 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.

EK also encloses a single-slot I/O bracket which replaces the original two-slot in order to make installation of multiple graphics cards easier and also transforms the GPU into a gorgeous single slot solution.

The EK-Vector Radeon RX 5700 +XT RGB water blocks are compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers since it features a classic 4-pin 12 V RGB LED strip.

The EK-Vector Radeon RX 5700 +XT RGB water blocks are compatible with the reference design Radeon RX 5700 and RX5700 XT graphics cards.

Overclocking
Liquid cooling your Radeon RX 5700 GPU will allow you to overclock it to the maximum clock allowed by the card and reach 10-20% better results depending on workload or game you're playing. Even while overclocked your card will reach far lower temperatures and less noise than factory clocked with air cooling ensuring an even longer lifespan of the card.

EK-Vector RX 5700+ XT backplates
EK-Vector Radeon RX 5700 +XT Backplate is a CNC machined retention backplate made from black anodized aluminum and nickel-plated aluminum for EK-Vector Radeon RX 5700 +XT series water blocks. Backplate covers the whole length of graphics cards PCB, serves as an aesthetic add-on and also provides passive cooling for the backside of the voltage regulation module (VRM). This backplate is guaranteed to be compatible with reference PCB AMD Radeon RX Navi series graphics cards and respective EK blocks.

Availability and pricing
The EK-Vector Radeon RX 5700 +XT RGB blocks and backplates are made in Slovenia, Europe and are available for pre-order through the EK Webshop or EK Partner Reseller Network. They will start shipping on Monday, 26th of July 2019.

Really like the single slot goodness.
, AIBs need to make a half length PCB version of the card.

Dang, really like the look of these; the smooth front end and clear acrylic is quite pleasing.

Make sure to log in to see your actual regional price. I believe you can also add it to the cart and make it to the section where you're about to pay and it'll updated based on your shipping location.

Yeah, would have been amazing and also a ton of help in building a custom loop in more compact cases with less space. That way you could use a thicker radiator and still easily fit a D5. Really good idea.

Yeah that's the holy grail... I missed out on it last time and I don't know if AMD, or anybody else, will be able to top their Fury Nano anytime soon...



But if they do I'll be first in line this time.
