EK is releasing a new RGB monoblock for ASUS® X399 motherboards
EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer proves its market leadership once again by releasing the world’s first Socket TR4 based monoblock made for several ASUS® X399 motherboards. The EK-FB ASUS ROG ZE RGB Monoblock has an integrated 4-pin Digital RGB LED strip which makes it compatible with ASUS® Aura Sync, thus offering a full lighting customization experience!
EK-FB ASUS ROG ZE RGB Monoblock
This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for three ASUS® AMD® X399 Chipset based motherboards that support AMD Socket TR4 AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processors. This monoblock is compatible with the following ASUS® motherboards:
- ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme
- ASUS PRIME X399-A
- ASUS ROG Strix X399-E Gaming
Designed and engineered in cooperation with ASUS®, this monoblock uses award-winning EK-Supremacy EVO cooling engine to ensure best possible CPU cooling. This water block directly cools AMD® Socket TR4 type CPU, as well as the power regulation (MOSFET) module. Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing the enthusiasts with a great solution for high and stable overclocks. Using such a monoblock gets rid of the small fan that can be found on some X399 motherboards, hidden under the I/O cover.
Like with every EK monoblock, EK-FB ASUS ROG ZE RGB features high flow design and this monoblock can be easily used with the system using a weaker water pump as well. This kind of efficient VRM cooling on an X399 platform opens up new overclocking capabilities.
This X399 platform based monoblock also comes with a redesigned bigger cold plate. The new design ensures that the monoblock has mechanical contact with the entire Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processor IHS, thus enabling better thermal transfer. The base of the monoblock is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality acrylic glass material. The main nickel plated mounting screws and brass screw-in standoffs are pre-installed so that the installation process is quick and easy.
The monoblock is equipped with a Digital RGB LED strip that connects to the dedicated digital 4-pin header on the motherboard. ASUS X399 series motherboards use the most advanced LED system on the market allowing a new world of illumination possibilities. Using the digital LED header, users can individually address color to each LED on the monoblocks integrated Digital LED strip. The LED strip cover can easily be removed for adjusting the cable orientation or replacing the Digital LED strip with an ordinary LED strip or any other custom solution as well!
