VR Devs, Keep Your AMD Radeon Pro Duo Chilled With EK’s Water Block

The Duo was already tested and showed throttling due to temperature down to 90% and that wasn't in a hot room.

Some places get hotter than normal, so there probably is a market.

It surprises me that AMD didn't put in a slightly better liquid cooler. A little thicker radiator or something.
 
Update:
I may be wrong on the throttling. The following is very confusing:

At the top it reads like the GPU is actually being throttled down due to temperature, but then lower down it says the GPU is at 50degC so that doesn't make sense.

I would guess the benchmark is CPU bottlenecked slightly thus the GPU is automatically throttled down slightly to save power.

(which means a custom cooler only serves the MOD crowd as there appears to be no practical reason)

Extreme overlocking, maybe?
