EK reveals their first X470 series monoblock for ASUS' ROG Strix X470-F

EK water block has officially unveiled their first of many X470 water cooling monoblock designs, starting with their tailor-made block for ASUS' ROG Strix X470-F Gaming motherboard. 

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. This block will also feature ASUS AURA compatible RGB lighting, which can use a 4-pin RGB connection on the X470 Strix-F to offer a fully adjustable lighting experience. 

Like all of ASUS' other X470 monoblock designs, the EK-FB ASUS Strix X470 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 8th. This monoblock is specific to ASUS' ROG Strix X470-F Gaming motherboard, lacking support for the company's other X470 board designs on the Strix's X370-based counterpart.

They probably predicted that they could sell more of these and started off with this first. They'll probably cost the same anyway, so more volume means more profit.Quote

And again I stumbled over the fact that it's a ROG board and not an AREZ one. Now I know that that's totally correct since the board itself is not by AMD, but I somehow get confused now whenever I see an AMD chipset and the ROG branding I guess I'm the only one? Quote

Yeah, there is no consistency.

But if you are a ROG fan and purchase these future nvidia gpu with the branding, then you want your mobo to share the same names. Gone are the days where motherboards only supported AMD or Nvidia. Since there is no allegiance anymore they would probably suffer on sales changing AMD related boards to ArezQuote

This will be like the Rog Maximus Extreme IX board I bought with the bitspower block. Expect to see price range between £550 and £650 i guess.Quote
