Today, Alphacool launched the Eisblock Aurora Acetal GPX-A for the AMD Radeon 6800/6900/XT reference GPUs. Like all of the Eisblock water blocks, it features a full coverage nickel-plated copper cold plate. What is unique to this model is Alphacool decided to reduce the water block thickness as well as the thermal pads creating significantly improved cooling performance. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $159 and is currently available directly from Alphacool. Below is the press release along with the specifications of the cooler.

Alphacool today presents the Eisblock Aurora Acetal GPX-A for the AMD Radeon 6800/6900/XT reference design

During the development of the Eisblock Aurora RADEON RX 6800/6900/XT graphic card GPU block, we wanted to further increase the performance. The first step was to move the cooler closer to the individual components by reducing the thermal pads to a thickness of 1 mm. Next, we reduced the thickness of the nickel-plated copper block. Instead of 7 mm, it is now only 5.5 mm thick. The water flow inside the cooler has also been optimized. All important components such as the voltage transformers and the memory are now significantly better and more effectively cooled by the water. All this ensures a significant increase in cooling performance.
