EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer sets the bar even higher by releasing a new LGA-2066 socket based monoblock made to fit several ASUS motherboards. The EK-FB ASUS PRIME X299 RGB Monoblock has an integrated 4-pin RGB LED strip which makes it compatible with ASUS Aura Sync, thus offering a full lighting customization experience!

EK-FB ASUS PRIME X299 RGB Monoblock

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

  • ASUS Prime X299-A
  • ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe
  • ASUS TUF X299 Mark 1*
  • ASUS TUF X299 Mark 2

 
* note that the monoblock is compatible with ASUS TUF X299 Mark 1 motherboard if the Thermal Armor is removed or modified.

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 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, EK-FB ASUS PRIME X299 RGB features high flow design and this monoblock can be easily used with weaker and silent water pump settings 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.
