EKWB Has Special Edition Watercooling Parts for AMD's Latest CPUs and GPUs

AMD just announced its new RX 6000 graphics cards, just after it revealed the new Ryzen 5000 CPUs only three weeks ago. It is safe to say that we're very excited about them. Of course, many of you are planning builds with these parts, and if you're in the extreme high-end segment, possibly tempted to look at custom watercooling. In a tweet from EK Water Blocks it appears that AMD and EKWB are collaborating to bring you some special edition parts, designed, themed, and built specifically for these new AMD chips.

At this time, not a lot of information is available about these, but that's okay. EKWB shared two pictures: one of a GPU waterblock with big and bold Radeon branding on it, along with an image of a CPU waterblock branded with Ryzen. Of course, the lighting is red, making these parts perfect for an all-AMD, AMD-themed watercooling build.

But that's not all. AMD's Frank Azor also revealed a slide showcasing these two parts, next to an array of other watercooling parts including AMD-themed EK-Vardar fans and an EKWB-themed reservoir. 

No word on when EKWB will be releasing these parts or which graphics cards will be compatible, but historically, the company always ensured that it had waterblocks available as soon as you could get your hands on the GPUs, as it did with Nvidia.

    I never understood why one would want such a loop, hot -> hoter -> rad -> pump. I feel that in loops, hot -> rad -> hotter -> big_rad -> pump is a proper loop.

    In a typical loop using a decent pump the water temperature doesn't change more than a single degree or two between hottest and coldest place of the loop.

    if you cite this
    0.86*P/F where P is the heating in watts and F is the flow in litres per hour.
    in with ryzen 3900 and NV3080 its like 450W-500W worth of heat to get rid of,
    0.86*450= 387L of water flow per hour which is almost exactly 7L per minute for a single point of temp difference in loop.

    Pump
    XSPC Single 420 Bayres
    Magicool MC-DCP450
    XSPC Photon Laing D5Flow Rate
    7 Litres per minute
    7.5 Litres per minute
    20 Litres per minute
    but it's an overclocker pump for water cooling.
    it seems that normal loops have 0.5Lpm loops which by this math does have 1/14'th the power, so temp difference should be around 15 degrees,
    I just have kind of mental blockade with sending an hotter coolant to my gpu, even if its just few degrees higher.
    I think I just love overkilling cooling, its so much fun to build them.
