EK Water Blocks, premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer from Europe, is releasing an Intel LGA1151 socket based monoblock belonging to the Quantum Line. The EK-Momentum MEG Z390 ACE is engineered specifically for the MSI MEG Z390 ACE motherboard. The addressable D-RGB LED in the monoblock is compatible with Mystic Light RGB control, thus offering a full lighting customization experience for every single diode at any given time. This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for motherboards that supports the 8th and 9th generation of Intel Core processors. The monoblock is compatible with the MSI MEG Z390 ACE motherboard.

Designed and engineered in cooperation with MSI, this monoblock uses the latest generation of EK cooling engine used on the Quantum lineup to ensure the best possible CPU cooling while not reducing flow to other components. This water block directly cools the LGA1151 socket type CPU, as well as the voltage 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, EK-Momentum MEG Z390 ACE D-RGB features high flow design and it can be easily used with the system using a weaker water pump or lower pump speed settings as well. The Momentum monoblock also comes with sophisticated D-RGB (addressable) lightning which connects to a standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB header.




This Z390 monoblock also comes with a special cold plate which ensures that the monoblock has better mechanical contact with the IHS of 8th and 9th gen Intel 1151 socket based processors by avoiding raised corners. The result is 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.

A Digital (addressable) 3-pin 5V D-RGB LED strip is installed in the monoblock that connects to the motherboard's 3-pin LED header or it can be connected to any other supported 5V 3-pin LED controller. This product is compatible with MSI Mystic Light RGB control software. The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the RGB header.

Availability and pricing
EK-Momentum MEG Z390 ACE D-RGB - Plexi monoblock is made in Slovenia, Europe and is readily available for purchase through the EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. In the table below you can see the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) with VAT included. Price: 139.90€.
