During the recent Radeon RX 6000 announcement, AMD’s chief architect of gaming solutions, Frank Azor, mentioned that the company is working alongside its partners to develop new cooling solutions for the upcoming AMD products. One of those partners, EKWB, has now teased two waterblocks for both Ryzen and Radeon components.
As announced in EKWB’s tweet, the company is planning to release GPU and CPU waterblocks for the Radeon RX 6000 and Ryzen 5000, respectively. The GPU waterblock comes with a big Radeon logo that appears to feature red lighting, and a smaller AMD logo in the bottom right corner. The CPU block also looks set to feature red LEDs and will also come with the Ryzen logo on display.

During AMD’s announcement of the Radeon RX 6000, Frank Azor presented a slide showcasing other EKWB products. Besides the CPU and GPU waterblocks, this slide included two EKWB Vardar fans with red blades and AMD’s logo in the centre, a distribution plate with AMD’s logo, some fittings, and a dual-fan radiator.
There are no pricing or availability details about EKWB’s cooling solutions for the Ryzen 5000 processors and Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards just yet, but we expect them to launch fairly soon after AMD’s CPU and GPUs hit the market. AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series is slated for release on November 5th, while the Radeon RX 6000 series will be available starting November 18th.
