NVIDIA A100 Compute Accelerator will be available with a pre-installed water block for liquid cooling

NVIDIA is preparing another version of the PCIe version of the A100 compute gas pedal based on the GA100 GPU (Ampere architecture), announced last June.
This novelty will differ in the presence of a waterblock to connect to a liquid cooling system.
It is worth noting that preinstalled waterblocks are not typical for visual computing gas pedals, like NVIDIA A100, if liquid cooling is used in precast systems, the waterblock installation is undertaken by server manufacturers.
However, NVIDIA seems to have decided to simplify the partners' task by offering its own solution with the brand's inherent elegance.
The cooling system occupies only one expansion slot, and a pair of herringbone type fittings for heat inlet and outlet are located at the end, next to the 8-pin power connector.Here we note that NVIDIA has previously produced an A100 gas pedal with liquid cooling.
But that was the SXM version of the gas pedal used in the DGX A100 Station \"desktop supercomputer\".
For PCIe-version of NVIDIA A100 there are waterblocks from other manufacturers, e.g.
from famous company EK Water Blocks.
In general, NVIDIA decision, although not officially confirmed yet, reflects the general trend for more and more active use of liquid cooling in the server segment.
