EK to Provide Liquid Cooling Solutions For The New AMD Radeon™ RX 6800…


EK®, a leading computer cooling solutions provider, is proud to announce several Special Edition products that will mark the launch of the new AMD Radeon™ RX 6800 Series and Radeon™ RX 6900 XT graphics cards. As an official launch partner, EK has prepared in close coordination with AMD a special GPU water block, a heavy-duty AIO GPU cooling unit and an entire liquid cooling kit. With the recent launch of the highly anticipated AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series desktop processors that bring incredible IPC gains, EK made a special AM4 socket CPU water block as well.

“EK and AMD have combined forces to provide gamers with the liquid-cooled performance they are looking for with the new AMD Radeon™ graphics cards,” said Scott Herkelman, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “EK’s award-winning liquid cooling solutions are designed to offer a significant boost in thermal performance while staying silent, providing incredible gaming experiences for our customers.”

EK-Quantum Vector RX 6800/6900 D-RGB

The star of the show is the EK-Quantum Vector RX 6800/6900 D-RGB, a high-performance full-cover water block designed for the latest generation of AMD Radeon™ graphics cards. The Special Edition block stands out thanks to the black acetal top with aesthetic side-slopes that mimic the new graphics cards’ factory cooler. The top also features an ultra-clean, screwless design because the assembly is done from the backside of the block. The water block provides active cooling to the GPU core, VRAM and all the VRM MOSFETs, and it is also in contact with the inductors to suppress any possible coil whine. The water block will be delivered with a special gray anodized backplate that provides additional passive cooling to the backside of the GPU PCB. Bringing it all together is the central AMD Radeon™ logo backed up by a dense addressable D-RGB LED strip to create smooth color transitions.

EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB

The perfect gaming rig is not complete without the CPU. EK also prepared a special AM4 socket CPU block. The EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB uses a proven Velocity cooling engine optimized for the AMD Ryzen™ chiplet layout. This allows for more precise coolant channeling over the CPU die, while not affecting the efficient hydraulic flow characteristics of the Velocity. The water block boasts a 6mm thick aluminum mounting plate, combined with a subtle D-RGB side glow effect surrounding the entire water block top. The mounting screws are a special blend of black standoff screws and EK’s Satin Titanium color thumb nuts.

“AMD challenged EK to create a cooling solution for the new AMD Radeon™ graphics cards that elevates the aesthetics and performance of the cards to new heights,” says Edvard Koenig, Founder of EK, “We stepped up to the challenge by pushing our teams to develop a top-line solution that provides performance and looks that any enthusiast or gamer will be proud of.”

EK-Quantum Power Kit RX 6800/6900 D-RGB P360

We also made the ultimate enthusiast liquid cooling gamer kit. This liquid cooling kit contains custom-made EK parts designed to amplify your AMD Radeon™ experience. The Velocity CPU and Vector GPU block are both included in the kit, together with custom-made Vardar fans, custom-assembled Torque fittings, and a custom-made FLT 120 D5 combo unit. The included EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT 120 D5 is using an all-black POM acetal backing plate, a gray anodized LED cover, and a custom engraved front acrylic cover. Also included are the radiator, angled adapter fittings, matte black ZMT tubing, a bottle of red coolant concentrate, and everything else that ensures an epic loop building experience.

EK-Quantum Reaction AIO RX 6800/6900 D-RGB P240

If you are a bit apprehensive about custom loop liquid cooling, we also created a custom made, heavy-duty, maintenance-free, All-In-One liquid cooler for your new Radeon™ RX 6800 Series and Radeon™ RX 6900 XT graphics cards. As with all of the other water blocks, this one includes custom-made Vardar fans, custom-assembled fittings, and the additional AMD branding on the side of the radiator core unit. The entire unit is assembled out of custom loop liquid cooling grade products, including the SPC style pump that is housed in the radiator unit. With an AIO like this, all you have to do is install the water block to your GPU and crunch some FPS.

“Technology, innovation and passion are the driving forces when bringing our partnerships to the next level,” said Kat Silberstein CEO, Americas, EK. “Coming together to create a liquid cooling solution with a great partner like AMD showcases the best product performance, aesthetics and the art of gaming.”

EK-Quantum Vector RX 6800/6900

Last but not least, our 2nd generation EK-Quantum Vector water blocks are also getting four new family members. We’re updating the Vector lineup with standard four water blocks in various material combinations, accompanied by standard black and nickel-plated backplates.
