Bitspower has officially launched its latest CPU water block with two new tricks up its sleeve: cross-platform compatibility and an OLED display. That screen can show temperature in either Celsius or Fahrenheit, or the Bitspower logo.
The multiplatform design was enabled by cutting the corners from the Intel-style housing, thereby making space for the AMD mounting plate. Bitspower says that its nickel-plated copper coldplate integrates 0.3mm cooling fins and channels and integrates digitally addressable RGB lighting for the clear section between the OLED top plate and base.
They call the lighting DRGB, but it may be more familiar to some as ARGB. No matter what it’s called, it’s compatible with the addressable LED headers and software of AsRock, Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI.

On the electronics forums evwryone conplains how there is image burn in as low as 100 hrs on these small oled displays.
