EK Unveils EK-Quantum Momentum TRX40 Aorus Master D-RGB Monoblock

EK Water Blocks, the European premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, unveiled another sTRX4-based monoblock made for TRX40 AORUS MASTER motherboard. This time, during the development of the monoblock, EK's engineering team went for a more elaborate approach, which can be seen from the shape of the monoblock. This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for the Aorus motherboard that is based on AMD TRX40 chipset for AMD Ryzen 3rd generation Threadripper processors.

The monoblock uses the Velocity sTR4 cooling engine to ensure the proper cooling of the large IHS that hides the spread-out Ryzen chiplets. This water block directly cools the AMD sTR4X type CPU and the voltage regulation module (VRM), as well as LAN chips under the I/O cover. This kind of efficient VRM cooling on a TRX40 platform opens up even greater overclocking capabilities. This TRX40 platform-based monoblock also comes with a bigger redesigned cold plate. The new design ensures the monoblock has mechanical contact with the entire 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processor IHS, thus enabling better thermal transfer.
Unlike other solutions on the market, this is a true one-piece, sturdy and reliable liquid cooling product that requires only two connector fittings for proper operation. The bottom left Out port is carefully placed to be on the exact same height as the EK-Quantum Vector GPU block with an EK-Quantum Torque 90° angled fitting installed to it. This makes the tube routing very clean and simple, using just one piece of tubing bent at an angle of 90° to connect it with the GPU block.
Availability and Pricing
EK-Quantum Momentum TRX40 Aorus Master D-RGB water block is made in Slovenia, Europe and is available for pre-order through EK Webshop or EK Partner Reseller Network for €199.99.

Because it's CNC machined with tight tolerances.

It's EK that's so expensive...they charge more than anyone else because so many people INCORRECTLY think they're the best simply for the fact that it's always EK parts on Youtube because EK sends them to the Youtubers for free. If I wanted to spend as much as with EK, I'd just buy Watercool's Heatkiller line, otherwise I'd just get Bykski...way cheaper, but just as good.

Truer words has never been spoken. Everybody knows that even improved sTRx4 blocks from EK are still behind competition from Phanteks, BP or Watercool while being more expensive.

EK has wide portfolio of products, but on price, quality and performance there are better alternatives almost every time.
