As with the Gigabyte boards, EK designed and engineered this monoblock with the help of MSI. It uses a completely new cooling engine that allows excellent CPU Cooling performance. The waterblock directly cools AMD Threadripper CPUs on the TR4 socket, as well as the VRM or power delivery. Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing the enthusiasts with a great solution for high and stable overclocks. The additional included passive heatsink is used for the VRM and network chip components placed between the I/O shield and the memory DIMM slots.

This custom designed waterblock for the MSI X399 also features a redesigned cold plate with a fin area that covers most of the IHS surface. It also guarantees that the monoblock covers the entire Ryzen Threadripper CPU’s IHS promoting 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 come pre-installed ensuring the installation process is quick and simple.
