EKWB Unveil its 1U-Compatible Threadripper CPU Water Block

EK Water Blocks (EKWB) has announced the launch of a 1U rack compatible high-performance liquid cooling solution designed specifically for AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. 1U rack compatibility is achieved with G1/8″-threaded side ports that enable a smaller vertical footprint. 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.

EKWB 1U-Compatible Threadripper CPU Water Block

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 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

Price & Availability

The EK-Pro CPU WB sTR Rack water block is made in Slovenia, Europe, and is available for order through the EKWB Webshop for an MSRP of €139.90. Therefore, if you do want to learn more about this cooling solution, you can check out the official product website via the link here!
