EK Releases RGB Monoblocks for MSI X299 Gaming Pro Carbon

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer is maintaining its market leadership by releasing the world's first LGA-2066 socket based monoblock tailor made for MSI X299 motherboards. The EK-FB MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON RGB Monoblock has an integrated 4-pin RGB LED strip which makes it compatible with MSI Mystic Light, thus offering a full lighting customization experience.

This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for three MSI Intel X299 Chipset based motherboards that support new Intel Core X-series LGA-2066 socket processors. This monoblock is compatible with the following MSI motherboards:
  • MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON AC
  • MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON
  • MSI X299 GAMING M7 ACK
Designed and engineered in cooperation with MSI, this monoblock uses award-winning EK-Supremacy EVO cooling engine to ensure best possible CPU cooling. This water block directly cools Intel LGA-2066 socket type CPU, as well as the power regulation (MOSFET) module. Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing the enthusiasts with a great solution for high and stable overclocks. Like with every EK monoblock, MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON RGB features high flow design and this monoblock can be easily used with the system using a weaker water pump as well. This kind of efficient VRM cooling on an X299 platform additionally brings down the CPU temperatures compared to the traditional CPU water block and stock VRM heatsink cooling solution.

This X299 platform based monoblock also comes with a new redesigned cold plate. The new design ensures that the monoblock has better mechanical contact with the IHS of Intel Core X-series LGA-2066 socket based processors, thus enabling better thermal transfer. The base of the monoblock is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality acrylic glass material. The nickel plated brass screw-in standoffs are pre-installed and allow for easy installation.

The monoblock is equipped with a 4-pin RGB LED strip that connects to the motherboard's 4-pin LED header or it can be connected to any other 4-pin LED controller. The LED strip cover can easily be removed for adjusting the cable orientation or replacing the LED strip with a custom solution as well.

MSRP: 119.95€. For more information, visit the product page.

I wonder if they know how big the DIE is on the new i9 7950, 299 chipset processors. The intervention issues only one truth, and this is the uneven bottom line of the cooling blocks in EK. It was necessary to take the treatment, but not so deeply. The surface of the disperser is much larger. This would only be sufficient for the i7 7640 and i7 7740 processors.
And EK could offer the same product with the added frame of the top thickness and thicker internal distribution element for , top of option ! Which is much more efficient ! It looks nice and the function should be in the first place ! I warn about this error in the bottom treatment for the second time (X370 model). Do not shop blindly and wait for testing and review .

The circle on the cold plate looks larger than any of the X299 dies currently available.

Looks like! It does not mean that it is and there is no round DIE. 18 core DIE has in fact 20 cores in DIE .. and all thermal energy must pass through this bottleneck!
