EK is releasing one more X470 series monoblocks. This one is tailor-made for the GIGABYTE X470 AORUS GAMING 5 WIFI motherboard. The EK-FB GA X470 Gaming 5 RGB Monoblock has an integrated 4-pin RGB LED strip which makes it compatible with GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, thus offering a full lighting customization experience!
his is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for the X470 AORUS GAMING 5 WIFI socket AM4 motherboard that supports the second generation of AMD® Ryzen™ and 7th Generation A-series/Athlon™ processors.
Designed and engineered in cooperation with GIGABYTE®, this monoblock uses award-winning EK-Supremacy EVO cooling engine to ensure best possible CPU cooling. This water block directly cools AMD® AM4 socket type CPU, as well as the power 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-FB GA X470 Gaming 5 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.
This AM4 socket based monoblock also comes with a special cold plate which ensures that the monoblock has better mechanical contact with the IHS of AMD® AM4 socket based processors, thus enabling 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 standard 4-pin 12V RGB LED strip is installed in the monoblock that connects to the motherboard’s 4-pin LED header or it can be connected to any other standard 12V 4-pin LED controller. The LED strip cover can easily be removed for adjusting the cable orientation or replacing the ordinary LED strip with a Digital LED strip or any other custom solution as well! The enclosed Digital RGB LED strip is compatible only with the dedicated 3-pin digital LED motherboard header. GIGABYTE® motherboards feature advanced LED lighting options and with the GIGABYTE RGB Fusion App, users can individually address color to each LED on the monoblocks integrated Digital LED strip.
You can always check for compatible water blocks by using EK Cooling Configurator database where compatible graphics cards and motherboards are being added to the list on a daily basis:
