EK To Release Monoblock For MSI X299M
This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for MSI X299M GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboards that supports Intel Core X-series LGA-2066 socket processors.
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 X299M 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 special cold plate. The 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.
Pricing And Availability
The EK-FB MSI X299M Gaming Pro Carbon RGB monoblock will be available through EK’s webshop for a MSRP of 129.90 Euros and is available now.
