EK Announces Dedicated AMD Threadripper Supremacy EVO Water Blocks

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer sets an example once again, by announcing a dedicated EK-Supremacy EVO water block that covers the entire IHS of the newly released HEDT AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor.

With AMD releasing their new X399 chipset based HEDT processors, came the need for a water block with a larger cold plate contact surface. The primary goal in designing the new EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper Edition water block was to cover the entire IHS of the newly released HEDT AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor. With a dense micro-fin structure that counts 52 grooves with a spacing of 0.25mm apart, the EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper Edition water block offers the best possible cooling performance! The water block uses award-winning EK-Supremacy EVO cooling engine with specialized jet insert and jet plate combination to ensure best possible cooling for X399 chipset based CPUs.


Today, we are announcing three versions of the EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper Edition water block to be available at launch:

  • EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper Edition – Nickel
  • EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper Edition – Acetal + Nickel
  • EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper Edition – Full Nickel

 
Every EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper Edition water block comes with a precisely machined copper base (sometimes referred to as ‘cold plate’) which is made from purest copper available on the market and is treated with nickel electroplating and further polished to absolute mirror finish. The top is made from CNC machined POM Acetal, acrylic glass or nickel-plated brass (depending on the variant). To ensure the optimal flow, the insert is pre-installed and made from injection molded ABS polymer.

All mentioned water blocks are enclosed with a small tube of high-performance Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut thermal grease. It’s suitable for high demanding users and for overclocking due to its excellent thermal conductivity. The thermal grease consists of a silicon-free structure, this makes it very light and highly flexible and easy to apply. It’s recommended that users follow the EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper Edition water block installation manual for the suggested method of thermal grease application for the best-expected results.


The base plate is covering 100% of the of the AMD® Ryzen Threadripper processors Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS). The Supremacy EVO cooling engine implemented into the water block and the orientation of the fins are the key to high-performance cooling. The fins are oriented so that the coolant is pushed up and down, towards the CPU dies underneath the IHS.

EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper comes with a pre-assembled error-preventing mounting mechanism that is installed directly onto the SocketTR4 mounting holes. The result is a perfect installation which results in 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 so has a hassle free installation procedure of the new CPU. You can always check for compatibility for the EK-Supremacy EVO Threadripper water blocks by using EK Cooling Configurator database where compatible motherboards are being added to the list on a daily basis.
