Career opportunity

The hardware generations follow up on each others quicker and quicker, and the models in each generation vary more and more. To accomodate this development and to publish our products quicker, we are un the look-out for new talents!
 
We are looking for a creative, enthuthiastic CAD/CAM Developer and Designer, mapping out and designing new water blocks and other products at our HQ in Waren / Müritz. Please find all details at our job advertisement.

HEATKILLER® IV water blocks for AMD RX Vega 56 and 64 now available

It's our pleasure to announce that the complete line-up of water blocks for AMD RX Vega 56 and 64 is now available.


The core features of these blocks are excellent performance while maintaining very low flow restriction to achieve maximum efficiency.
 
We came up with a new solution for illumination. It is still possible to simply use a single-color-LED strip. This strip connects to the onboard LED port of the graphics card. But we now also offer customized RGB LED strips. This strip comes with a custom sleeved cable that can be routed out of the block and then connects to a LED header on the mainboard or an external LED controller. This way, the water block can be included into an existing illumination concept.

Dedicated water block for AMD Ryzen Threadripper in development

We are happy to announce that we are currently working on a dedicated water block for AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. We tailored the cooling engine exactly to the enlarged DIE area of the Threadripper CPUs. THis should yield the best possible cooling performance even under heavy overclocks.
 
The block will come with very unique aesthetics, because we follow the rectangular shape of the socket. But fans of the original Heatkiller design language can rest easy, the block will be recognizable as a Heatkiller product since we incorporated some typical design elements. Pictures will follow soon.
 
Additionally to this standalone water block, we will also offer conversion kits for Heatkiller IV CPU blocks. The 66mm long cooling plate of the Heatkiller IV almost covers the entire DIE area of a Threadripper. It can hence provide a decent cooling solution. But if you want to drive your Threadkiller to the absolute maximum, you should rather go for the dedicated block.
 
The water block will come in different versions and will start to ship on September 6zh. The conversion kits will also be available on September 6th.

Watercool confirms 2066 socket compatibility

All HEATKILLER® IV CPU water blocks for INTEL CPUs are out-of-the-box compatible with the latest socket 2066 by INTEL. Mounting is identical to socket 2011. The same mounting material can be used with sockets 2011 and 2066.

The same applies for our HEATKILLER® CPU REV 3.0. Customers who own the mounting kit for socket 2011 can use the water block with the new Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X CPUs. Customers who do not have the mounting kit can get their conversion kit at our resellers or our shop.
We would like to use the opportunity to mention that we now offer complete water blocks with the popular “Hardwareluxx” top.
 

hardwaremax.net recommends HEATKILLER® IV for GTX 1080 and 1070

Our friends at hardwaremax.net took a closer look at some waterblocks for the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 Founders Edition and put them to the acid test. We sent a HEATKILLER® IV for GTX 1080 and 1070 - ACRYL Ni-Blto the lineup.

The testers were very pleased with the performance and the wortkmanship of our water block.

Quote: "The Heatkiller IV XL captivates us by its noble optics in combination with excellentquality of workmanship. EVen more, the water block delivers the best cooling performance of the whole line up, everything is just perfect with this block."
Not only did we receive their Enthusiast Award, but they also issued a recommendation to buy:

"Watercool delivers the best overall package with the Heatkiller, we reward this product with our Enthusiast Award and the recommendation of the staff."

Water blocks for selected ASUS Skylake Mainboards (1151) are available

We offer dedicated water blocks for the voltage regulation of selected socket 1151 Mainboards (Skylake) from ASUS. Overclockers should be happy about this, since it gives them more room for MHz record hunting. But even for systems with standard clock can benefit from optimized cooling for the voltage regulation. When using air cooling on the CPU, the fan usually also cools the VRMs. When this fan is missing, the original passive heatsinks are less effective. Integration in a water cooling loop solves this problem.
We have a HEATKILLER® SW-X solution available for the following mainboards:
ASUS Z170 PRO GAMING
ASUS Z170-K
ASUS Z170-P
ASUS Z170P D3
ASUS Z170-M Plus
We are currently designing a HEATKILLER® MB-X solution for the following mainboards:
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII Ranger
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII Hero
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII Gene
