EK Waterblocks have announced the EK Supremacy EVO full cover waterblock and cold plate for the new AMD Threadripper processors. You have your choice of Nickel, Acetal and Nickel or Full Nickel models, depending on your preference.
You can order it now, they will not start shipping until August 18th and EK will be honouring preorders first, if that is your type of thing. The Supremacy EVO will be large enough to cover the entire heatspreader on the Threadripper so you will not need adapters or various interesting techniques to make sure your new processor will stay cool. Inside are 52 grooves with a spacing of 0.25mm apart, making use of that extra space. Hopefully we will soon receive some for testing; at least Morry certainly hopes so!

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.
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.
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.
