EK Water Blocks releases new RGB full-cover water block for the AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card which can transform AMD’s flagship high-performance graphics card into a single slot card. It comes with a 4-pin 12V RGB LED strip that’s compatible with RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers including ASUS Aura, MSI Mystic Light, GIGABYTE RGB FUSION and ASRock RGB LED.



EK-FC Radeon Vega RGB


The new water block for Radeon RX Vega cards directly cools the GPU, HBM2 memory and VRM (voltage regulation module) offering an all-in-one cooling solution for the graphics card. The water block’s layout allows liquid cooling to flow directly over the heat-producing critical areas offerings superior cooling performance versus stock cooling. The water block’s central inlet-flow cooling engine design delivers the best possible cooling performance and allows reversed water flow with the same performance. Also, it offers great hydraulic performance that enables it to accommodate weaker pumps and still yield effective cooling.

The block is made out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper with high-quality acrylic material on top. Block and acrylic top are both CNC machined, sealed with high-quality rubber O-rings. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed for easy installation on a Radeon RX Vega graphics card. EKWB recommends purchasing the aesthetic retention backplate to complement the water block and to provide passive cooling to the VRM circuit on board. Hence, the water block is also fully compatible with the stock backplates that might be included with the Radeon RX Vega graphics card.

The block also features a special plastic cover over the block Terminal. This add-on is designed to reveal the Radeon logo, visible from the side. EK also encloses a single-slot I/O bracket which replaces the original two-slot in order to make installation of multiple graphics cards easier and also transforms the GPU into a gorgeous single slot solution.

- Radeon Vega Frontier Edition
- Radeon RX Vega 64
