EK Water Blocks has officially revealed their first X470 monoblock for Gigabyte Aorus Gaming platforms, delivering motherboard specific water cooling support to both the X470 AORUS Gaming 5's VRMs and CPU socket, shipping with two RGB LED strip options for standard 4-pin or 3-pin digital compatibility. Both LED options can be controlled using Gigabyte's RGB Fusion software utility.

This monoblock will cool both the user's CPU and the motherboard's power circuitry, keeping both heat sources cool to ensure minimal system noise when combined with a well thought out water cooling loop. On the CPU-side, EK uses a specialised version of their Supremacy EVO water block, which is designed to make better mechanical contact to the surface the IHS on AMD's Ryzen processors.

Like all of EK's other AM4 monoblock designs, the EK-FB GA X470 Gaming 5 RGB Monoblock is made using nickel-plated copper with a Supremacy EVO heat plate for CPU cooling. The block also directly cools the motherboard's MOSFETs, circulating liquid to all vital areas. The top of the block is made using an acrylic glass material, making it extremely suitable for RGB illumination.

EK plans to release this monoblock on their web store for €139.90 on their EU web store, with a release date of May 14th. This monoblock is specific to Gigabyte's X470 AORUS Gaming 5 motherboard, lacking support for the company's other X470 board designs on the Strix's X370-based counterpart.

That's quite nice actually. I would rock that, if I was into GB (which I am not).Quote
