Alphacool Eiswolf 120 GPX-Pro takes the RX Vega to the pool

To the chagrin of many, AMD has roped off access to the liquid-cooled version of its Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card to individuals buying one of the company's Radeon packs. Prospective buyers that want an RX Vega card with extra thermal performance will soon have another option thanks to the German PC enthusiasts at Alphacool. The company's Eiswolf 120 GPX-Pro ATI RX Vega all-in-one cooler and Nexxxos GPX ATI RX Vega waterblock splash some fluid on AMD's Radeon RX Vega graphics cards.

The Eiswolf GPX-Pro ATI RX Vega is an all-in-one liquid cooler kit that comes with a copper waterblock-and-pump assembly and a copper Nexxxos radiator. The base version comes with a 120-mm radiator, though Alphacool says there's a a model with a 240-mm radiator available. The kit is also ready for integration with the company's existing Eisbaer expandable CPU AIO liquid cooler kits by using spill-minimizing quick-release fittings.

Alphacool will also sell the RX Vega-tailored Nexxxos GPX stand-alone waterblock. The company says this block has a new design with an improved backplate layout and a side shield to ensconse the graphics card's circuit board on all sides. Owners of existing Nexxxos waterblocks will be able to purchase upgrade kits to let them use at least part of their existing coolers with their shiny new Radeon RX Vega graphics card.

Alphacool's Eiswolf 120 GPX Pro ATI RX Vega sells for €160 (about $155 without VAT), while the Nexxxos GPX ATI RX Vega waterblock is available for €105 (around $105).

    You’re expected to connect the red to the blue and the blue to the red? That’s… not intuitive.

    I’ve been seeing pictures at several sites claiming that there is some variability in AMD’s Vega packaging. Some packages seem to have HBM2 that’s not flush with the GPU die, although the pictures tend to be hard to interpret and the sample size is small right now.

      I wouldn’t put much stock into rating the consistency of the souvenir-dies that got handed out with press samples but if there are noticeable variations between working silicon that’s actually on cards that’s interesting… maybe not important but interesting.

        I believe the souvenir dies all looked a lot flusher than the actual working silicon that’s in Vega cards. OEMs tend to slather on a lot of thermal paste, but enthusiasts know to use less, and that might be a concern for ppl looking to waterblock. A lot of Vega cards seem to be seeing HBM2 temps up to 94C right now (I think the thermal limit for these is 95C).

In a factory-overclocked piece of high performance logic that's being thrown to the wall temperatures like that aren't shocking but in the memory itself that's higher than what you'd want.

Somebody ought to tell the Alphacool guys what happened.

      Ha, I was going to post the same thing.

      That said, if you do have one of these little furnaces on the way, these blocks are nice. Alphacool has a history of building no-nonsense all-go no-show parts, and these fit that particular niche quite nicely. 🙂

      Re: the “ATI” thing.

      Obviously in the TR Slack, I had to remark that “that’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time.”

        Maybe there’s a spinoff coming!
