EK is a brand synonymous with exquisite custom water cooling blocks and a highly respected name in the industry. The latest addition to their line-up is the M8G Monoblock which supports the Maximus VIII Hero, Ranger and Gene. Niko Tivadar, EK’s Chief of R&D said about the product announcement:
“With this release, we are bringing Full Board M8G Monoblock for three MAXIMUS VIII motherboards simultaneously and customers have much more liquid cooling options available when choosing their next ASUS ROG Z170 series motherboard.”
“Monoblock for the ASUS MAXIMUS VIII EXTREME is also already in the works.”
Designed and engineered in cooperation with ASUS®, the Monoblock utilizes EK-Supremacy EVO’s award-winning cooling engine to ensure best possible CPU cooling. This water block directly cools Intel® LGA-1151 socket type CPU and power regulation (MOSFET) module as water flows directly over all critical areas. It is a very high flow water block that can be easily used with the system using weaker water pumps.
The Monoblock’s base is constructed from nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of premium POM Acetal or acrylic glass material, depending on the variant.
From a visual standpoint, both designs are stunning.
