    EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the EK-MOSFET ASUS M6G - a new water block for water cooling of the power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module on ASUS Maximus VI Gene and Hero series motherboards. This product features pre-installed nickel-plated brass standoffs and utilizes ASUS factory provided backplates.

    EK-MOSFET ASUS M6G features a high flow design allowing the water block to be easily used with systems using weaker water pumps and is available in three different flavours:
    • EK-MOSFET ASUS M6G - Nickel - 44,95€
    • EK-MOSFET ASUS M6G - Acetal+Nickel - 44,95€
    • EK-MOSFET ASUS M6G - Nickel (Original CSQ) - 44,95€

    What`s the point? Well, unless you delid your Haswell and/or win the chip lottery... I don`t see fancy water-loops going everywhere in your system helping with anything other than look cool.

    Agreed, the only platform that really needs active VRM cooling is x79.

    Don't forget about the AMD fans with their FX 9590s.

    Meh, the 9590's are proven to be working at the near max of the silicon anyway.

    Anyone going well past the 1.5v for modern CPU's I can agree on, but when you do the life expectancy of your chip is cut to months vs years. So ya benchmark scores, and looking cool, for a $700+ loop though :wtf:

    Hey EK rep,

    Did you guys happen to test fit the block with an mSATA card in the slot this time???

    kinda dropped the ball on the mVg/f

    that one cost me.... :mad:



    riiiiiight, so you'll run yours na-kid???

    there's a guy who test mobos for gigabyte and said that when LN2 Benching he complete removes the heat sink for convenience. So you could theoretically run a Z87 VRM without a heat sink plus all these mosfets are now have to push much lower currents because the voltages the VRM has to produce are around 2V which is a 60% higher voltage than Z77 meaning the current pull will be around 38% lower to supply the same wattage and current pull is what causes all the heat problems and VRM blow outs
