EK Launches a 1U-Compatible EPYC and Threadripper CPU Water Block
EK®, the leading liquid cooling gear manufacturer, launches a 1U rack compatible high-performance liquid cooling solution for AMD® EPYC™ and AMD® Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processors. 1U rack compatibility is achieved with G1/8”-threaded side ports that enable a smaller vertical footprint.
EK-Pro CPU WB sTR Rack – Nickel + Acetal
This is a dedicated enterprise-grade water block that was specifically developed for AMD processors. It features a total of 2 ports. These are located on the side and have a G1/8″ threading to take up as little space as possible.
Aside from 1U compatibility, the goal in designing the new EK-Pro CPU WB sTR Rack – Nickel + Acetal water block was to cover the entire IHS of HEDT AMD Ryzen Threadripper and AMD EPYC processors and achieve optimal cooling performance. A dense micro-fin structure that counts 91 wide grooves fully covers the CPU dies that are located below the IHS for more efficient cooling.
The top is made from CNC-machined durable POM Acetal. Every EK-Pro CPU WB sTR Rack water block comes with a precisely machined copper base (sometimes referred to as ‘cold plate’), which is made from the purest copper available on the market and treated with nickel electroplating.
EK-Pro CPU WB sTR Rack water block comes with a pre-assembled error-preventing mounting mechanism, which is installed directly onto the SocketTR4 mounting holes. The result is a perfect installation and optimal performance every time. This also means the water block is out-of-the-box compatible with AMD’s server-type Socket SP3 motherboards. With such a mounting solution, the user does not need to remove the motherboard from the case and can enjoy a hassle-free installation of the new CPU.
CPU socket compatibility:
– AMD Socket sTRX4
– AMD Socket TR4 (Socket SP3r2)
– AMD Socket SP3
