EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, releases a stand-alone Momentum Monoblock for the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon - a motherboard based on the Intel Z590 chipset. The EK-Quantum Momentum MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon monoblock is made available in transparent Plexi version and features addressable D-RGB LEDs compatible with MSI Mystic Light software enabling full lighting customization for every single diode, at any given time. This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for Intel Socket 1200 Series Processors. The monoblock covers the entire VRM section of the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon motherboard. It also has an integrated flow indicator that provides an instant overview of loop operation and coolant flow.

This monoblock boasts the latest generation Velocity cooling engine, used in the EK Quantum Lineup to ensure the best possible CPU and MOSFET cooling without reducing flow to other components. Liquid flows directly over all critical areas providing enthusiasts with an excellent solution for high and stable overclocks. Like every EK monoblock, this one also features a high flow design easily used in systems with weaker water pumps or lower pump speed settings. TIt comes with sophisticated addressable D-RGB lightning, which connects to a standard 3-pin 5 V D-RGB addressable header on the MSI MPG Z590 Gaming Carbon motherboard.

The monoblock is made is sporting a nickel-plated electrolytic copper base, while the top is CNC-machined out of high-quality cast acrylic. The nickel-plated brass screw-in standoffs are all pre-installed and allow for easy and fast installation of the monoblock.

A Digital (addressable) 3-pin 5 V D-RGB LED strip is installed in the monoblock. It connects to the motherboard's D-RGB header, or it can be connected to any other supported 5 V 3-pin LED controller. This product is compatible with MSI Mystic Light software. The arrow marking on the 3-pin D-RGB connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB header. EK makes sure that there are no LED hotspots by employing an acetal cover for the LEDs as proper LED implementation is one of the key principles in EK design.
