AMD’s Radeon Vega VII may be hard to find at a decent price, but that hasn’t stopped OEMs from releasing waterblocks for AMD’s 7nm GPU. BYKSIand Alphacool already started selling their respective water cooled solutions a while back, and now EK is also joining the party. EK has also announced new waterblocks for the top-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX cards but’s a story for another time.
The waterblock is compatible with all reference Radeon VII cards which pretty much means all of them since there are no custom variants. The Vector lineup is the newest addition to EK’s family with a much higher efficiency and area coverage necessary to cool not only the GPU but also the VRMs and the HBM2 memory chips.
EK’s Vector series of waterblocks use an open split-flow cooling engine design that results in low hydraulic flow restrictions, eliminating the need for a strong pump to achieve optimal cooling.
The back of the EK Vector uses high-grade copper or nickel-plated copper. There are four variants in total. And just like its competitors, it also features the RGB goodness which can be synchronized with all major motherboards including MSI Mystic Light Asus Aura Sync and the Gigabyte RGB Fusion.
The Radeon Vega VII may be a decent high-end graphics cards when it comes to raw performance but just like its predecessors, it’s a hot and loud component that won’t please everyone. These waterblocks should take care of at least some of those problems, if you are willing to shell out the extra cash that is.
