EK reveals Reference-Style RX 5700 +XT Special Edition water block

EK has already released a full-cover Vector series water block for AMD’s new RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT graphics cards, but this time, EK plans to “Bend the Rules” by creating a “Special Edition” design, one which better emulates the look and feel of AMD’s reference GPU designs.   

For starters, this block features a CNC milled acetal top which features the same curves as AMD’s reference Radeon RX 5700 XT, delivering the same “bend” and lined aesthetic. The block also ships with an RGB illuminated Radeon logo, which is powered by a 12v 4-pin RGB connector, which is compatible with most RGB enabled motherboards. At stock, this special edition water block will ship with a CNC machined aluminium backplate, which features a black nickel finish. This aesthetic option offers passive cooling for AMD’s VRM circuitry, supplementing the block’s existing VRM cooling potential.  

EK has stated that water cooling AMD’s RX 5700 series graphics cards can enable “10-20% better results” in games or other workloads while overclocking, at least when compared to AMD’s reference design.
