EK-Pro Line Now Covers AMD Socket SP5 With New CPU Water Blocks
EK®, the leading liquid cooling gear manufacturer, launches a workstation and a 1U rack-compatible high-performance liquid cooling solution for AMD® Zen 4-based EPYC™ server processors. Code-named “Genoa,” these AMD CPUs come with up to 96 cores and 192 threads and have a TDP of up to 360W. These specifications render these processors perfect for liquid cooling, especially in a dual-socket motherboard environment.
EK-Pro CPU WB SP5 Ni + Acetal
This is a dedicated enterprise-grade water block developed specifically for AMD processors. It features three standard G1/4″ threaded ports located on the top of the water block and is intended for workstations and taller server racks.
The top is made from durable CNC-machined POM Acetal. Every EK-Pro CPU WB SP5 Rack water block comes with a precisely machined copper base (sometimes called “cold plate”) made from the purest copper available on the market and treated with nickel electroplating.
The EK-Pro CPU WB SP5 water block has a pre-assembled error-preventing mounting mechanism installed directly onto the SP5 socket mounting holes, while the six spring-loaded screws ensure optimal hold-down pressure. The result is 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 SP5 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.
EK-Pro CPU WB SP5 Rack Ni + Acetal
This dedicated enterprise-grade water block developed explicitly for AMD processors features a total of 4 side-located ports with G1/8″ threading to take up as little space as possible. These G1/8”-threaded side ports enable a smaller vertical footprint, making this water block 1U rack compatible.
Aside from 1U compatibility, the goal in designing the new EK-Pro CPU WB SP5 Rack – Nickel + Acetal water block was to cover the entire IHS of the SP5-based AMD EPYC processors and achieve optimal cooling performance. A dense micro-fin structure fully covers the CPU dies located below the IHS for more efficient cooling.
