The current crop of custom cooling CPU blocks for AMD’s Threadripper 3000 platform has been somewhat limited to just a few options up until now. However, that is set to change since Bitspower has just launched a new series of Summit ELX water blocks specifically designed for the high end desktop platform.
According to the guys over at TechPowerUp, the new Summit ELX CPU block series from Bitspower is tailored around the MCM layout of Threadripper 3000 processors, to allows coolant flow to cover all the CCDs around the CPU, as well as the central I/O controller die. Platform support includes the latest sTRX40 and is backwards compatible with the previous sTR4.
There are three variants of the new Bitspower Summit ELX CPU water block to choose from, all three are equipped with a nickel-plated copper thermal transfer plate at the base with either a transparent acrylic, metal or POM top layer. All three water blocks feature a narrow footprint so as not to interfere with RAM slots or other system components.
The acrylic version with reference DRGB includes addressable RGB lighting around the top cover. RGB lighting can be connected to standard 3-pin 5V motherboard RGB headers and configured or controlled via motherboard RGB software including Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync, ASRock Polychrome as well as offering support for Razer Chroma RGB. If a motherboard RGB header isn’t available, a Bitspower Touchaqua Digital RGB Multi Function Controller can be purchased separately.
All three Summit ELX CPU water blocks for AMD Threadripper platforms are available to purchase from Bistpower now. The Acrylic DRGB version is priced at NT$2,800.00, Metal top is NT$3,255 and the POM top version is NT$2,635 which converts roughly to between £73 – £89 currently.
