AMD allowed reviewers and YouTubers with their new RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6000 samples to write, or film unboxing articles and videos. Paul's Hardware had something exclusive to show off, with EK Water Blocks' new EKWB Radeon 6000 Water Cooling Kit unboxed on video. Check it out:
Paul unboxes the huge package that EKWB sent over, with the EKWB Radeon 6000 Water Cooling Kit for what AMD calls (and once you see benchmarks, you'll understand) the "Ultimate Gaming Platform". This is when you join forces between a Radeon RX 6000 series and Ryzen 5000 series GPU and CPU together.
In the kit, you'll get a waterblock that will fit onto the Radeon RX 6800 XT or Radeon RX 6800 graphics card with a backplate, too -- joining that is a custom waterblock for an AM4-based Ryzen 5000 series CPU. You'll also get an EK D5 pump attached to a reservoir with an acrylic plate with an AMD logo.
EKWB also includes a 360mm radiator and 3 x Vardar fans, with the mounting brackets letting users install it anywhere in their PC where they can install a 120mm fan. RGB fan headers are also included, so you can sync all that RGB lighting.
Also in the box: thick dark tubing, liquid red filament, fittings caps, and basic equipment for water cooling.
