EK Announces Quantum Momentum Chipset Waterblock for AORUS X570 Motherboards

EK, the European premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing a unique chipset water block made for Aorus motherboards based on AMD X570 chipset - the EK-Quantum Momentum Chipset Aorus X570. The EK-Quantum Momentum Chipset Aorus X570 water block completely replaces the PCH (chipset) heatsink and the small fan which is the primary source of the noise. This water block-based solution removes a moving part, thus providing a more long term solution with 0 noise and far superior thermal performance.

This chipset block is specifically made for the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite, Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra and Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master motherboards. The EK-Quantum Momentum Chipset Aorus X570 water block is made in Slovenia, Europe and is available for pre-order through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. This Quantum Line water block will start shipping on the 22nd of January 2020 for €39.99.

Would not it be more efficient if it had fins on the surface? I mean, i dont want to know more than EK engineers, but is there any reason for not having microfins? Maybe cost?

Yes, it would be more thermally efficient with fins. But it is completely unnecessary for a low TDP product such as a motherboard chipset these days, and would only add more cost for no tangible gains. Even VRM blocks are fine with a single channel of coolant flow, and those typically dissipate more heat too.

Primary source of the noise that stays off for most of the time...
