The water cooling gurus over at Corsair are now ready to put AMD's Radeon Navi graphics cards under water, revealing their Hydro X series XG7 RGB water block for AMD's Radeon RX 5700 XT. 

This water block supports AMD's reference RX 5700 XT PCB, enabling this block to be used on all Radeon Navi graphics cards which utilise AMD's reference PCB design. This GPU water block ships with pre-applied thermal pads and offer the same features as all other XG7 water blocks. 

Lighting-wise, Corsiar's XG7 RGB RX 5700 XT water block supports RGB illumination though ICUE, allowing the GPU's lighting to be manually adjusted with ease. In addition to this, Corsair has also opted to ship their GPU water block with a full-length backplate. With many of Corsair's competitor, such as EK, backplates are an optional extra. With Corsair, their backplate comes with the block. 
 
Somewhat more expensive than Bitspower but I'm sure the quality is very good. 
 


Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

Associate Code: H5U80QBH6BH0AXF

    Beautifull waterblock.
    AMD 5700 XT is very nice gaming card.
    Not as RTX2080 Super but affordable and enough for max details without AA filters pm 1080p example.
     
    Part above ports remind me on Dominator Platinum heatsink.

    Ah, I don't think it will do too much for performance. The RX 5700 XTs seem to be primarily memory controller limited.

    I see CORSAIR have some interesting look radiators. 
    People probably wait to compare them with Hardware Labs Black Ice Nemesis series.
     
    They are most similar to them, same as Bitspower Leviathan I think...
    This is size thickness I like to see... These will be available to me for regular price, Black Ice Nemesis GTS I need to pay 30-40 more per radiator.
    Nice radiators, even combo is not bad, but far from Germans Heatkiller series.
     

     
     
    From other side CORSAIR and new EKWB Fittings are terrible. 
    There are 3 nice fittings on market, Swiftech, Koolance and Bitspower...
    I know why Bitspower fittings dominate only and not other products... Radiators are best from HW Lab, Blocks are best from Germans Aqua Computer and Watercool. de, but fittings... Fittings are made in China from all companies except Bitspower, they made in Taiwan.
    Same as Lian Li Aluminum Series of cases and even if American or European companies produce something they will not build on Taiwan, they will build in China. 
    China product only could be good if 100 people invest all effort to clone Taiwan idea. Hahaaa... poor China, Planet Earth will hit back one day for everything they done...

    I went over to the Corsair site to setup a system for my case, mobo, CPU and it got expensive real fast. What they came up with was almost 800$ and I was shocked. I can't speak to the quality of pieces they using in their loops but I've seen CPU loop kits for about a third of that prices.
     
    They didn't have a block for my GPU so I couldn't check that yet.

    I've actually seen their pricing and it's actually not that bad compared to their competitors.  I've even heard some of the gear is rebranded meaning the rads could actually be Black Ice or so I've heard apparently but not 100% sure.
     
    I'm using their CPU block and works really well.
