EK is Releasing a New RGB Monoblock for MSI X299 Motherboards


EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer is maintaining its market leadership by releasing the world’s first LGA-2066 socket based monoblock tailor made for MSI X299 motherboards. The EK-FB MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON RGB Monoblock has an integrated 4-pin RGB LED strip which makes it compatible with MSI Mystic Light, thus offering a full lighting customization experience!

EK-FB MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON RGB Monoblock

This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for three MSI Intel X299 Chipset based motherboards that support new Intel Core X-series LGA-2066 socket processors. This monoblock is compatible with the following MSI motherboards:

  • MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON AC
  • MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON
  • MSI X299 GAMING M7 ACK

 

Designed and engineered in cooperation with MSI, this monoblock uses award-winning EK-Supremacy EVO cooling engine to ensure best possible CPU cooling. This water block directly cools Intel LGA-2066 socket 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. Like with every EK monoblock, MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON 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 X299 platform additionally brings down the CPU temperatures compared to the traditional CPU water block and stock VRM heatsink cooling solution.


This X299 platform based monoblock also comes with a new redesigned cold plate. The new design ensures that the monoblock has better mechanical contact with the IHS of Intel Core X-series LGA-2066 socket based processors, 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 nickel plated brass screw-in standoffs are pre-installed and allow for easy installation.


The monoblock is equipped with a 4-pin RGB LED strip that connects to the motherboard’s 4-pin LED header or it can be connected to any other 4-pin LED controller. The LED strip cover can easily be removed for adjusting the cable orientation or replacing the LED strip with a custom solution as well!


You can always check for compatible water blocks by using EK Cooling Configurator database where compatible graphics cards and motherboards are being added to the list on a daily basis.
