Bitspower Introduces New Mono Block for ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero

Bitspower informed us earlier today that they have a new mono block out for the ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero motherboard based on AMD's X570 chipset. Titled the BP-MBASX570CVIIIH, it features an acrylic top to allow the end user to see through into the cooling engine and the coolant flow in use and a nickel-plated copper coldplate. The latter, as with any mono block, is massive relative to just a CPU water block since it covers the CPU in addition to the critical power delivery section of the motherboard to ensure no thermal throttling, be it direct or indirect.

The direct injection of the coolant over the microfins via the split central-inlet flow design allows for the CPU to be cooled first, before a parallel split through the VRM section and also a flow indicator wheel as seen in the images below. The mono block also has integrated lighting support via Bitspower's digital RGB LEDs, which in turn are compatible with ASUS Aura Sync and onboard LED headers in addition to Bitspower's TouchAqua dRGB controller. Bitspower also teased more mono blocks on the way, with owners of the ASRock X570 Taichi and Gigabyte X570 Auros Master going to see support coming up shortly.

This would be appealing if they didn't double the price of the board.

Oh, it's for the VRMs around the CPU.
I kind of hoped from the article title that it was a replacement for the the whiny little chipset fan on the X570 itself :\

and the cpu...

Btw, I've only had one board of several that I could hear the chipset fan...the CHVIIII Hero wasnt one of them. Most are silent (my one exception was an itx board). Many bios also include fan control as well... so let's not make a big deal about it...especially if you havent owned one.
