EK Water Blocks Unveils EK-Quantum Momentum² ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme D-RGB

EK, the manufacturer of high-performance liquid cooling equipment, is releasing a new AMD AM4-socket-based monoblock belonging to the Quantum product line, the EK-Quantum Momentum² ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme D-RGB-Plexi. This monoblock is specially designed for the ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME motherboard from ASUS. The addressable D-RGB LED in the monoblock is compatible with ASUS Aura Sync RGB control, providing a full lighting customization experience for each individual diode at any time. This Momentum² monoblock is compatible with EK-Matrix.

This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors and the monoblock is compatible with AM4 socket ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme motherboard. This monoblock uses the latest generation EK Velocity² cooling engine to ensure the best possible CPU cooling without reducing power to other components. This water block directly cools the Ryzen CPU, VRM section and the LAN controller. The LAN controller is cooled by an oversized heat sink that goes over the I/O section and is coupled to the monoblock.

Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing enthusiasts with a great solution for high and stable overclocking. As with any EK monobloc, the EK-Quantum Momentum² ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme has a high flow design and can be easily used with the system with weaker water pumps or lower pump speed settings. The Quantum Momentum² monoblock also comes with advanced D-RGB (addressable) lighting with a total of 8 LEDs. They plug into a standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB addressable header called Aura Gen2 header on this ROG motherboard.

The base of the monoblock is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while the top is made of high-quality cast acrylic material. The nickel-plated brass screw-in spacers are pre-installed and allow for easy installation.

A digital (addressable) 3-pin 5V D-RGB LED strip is installed in the monoblock which connects to the mainboard’s 3-pin LED header or it can be connected to any other supported 5V 3-pin LED controller. This product is compatible with ASUS Aura Sync RGB control software. The arrow mark on the 3-pin D-RGB LED connector must align with the +5V mark on the AURA Addressable Gen2 header.

Recommended retail price: 249.99 €.
