EKWB Preparing Water Blocks for Asus ROG Components

By - Source: EKWB | B 5 comments

EKWB has announced that it is preparing a number of water blocks for new Asus hardware.

EKWB has announced that it is working on a new lineup of water cooling blocks specifically built for new Asus hardware, including a number of the upcoming ROG parts.

First of all, it will make water cooling blocks for a total of five of Asus' motherboards. These motherboards are all part of the ROG Maximus VI series, including the Maximus VI Extreme, Maximus VI Formula, Maximus VI Hero, Maximus VI Gene, and Maximus VI Impact. The water blocks for the Hero and Gene motherboards will be released first, with an expected release date of July 22, 2013. Parts for the Extreme, Formula and Impact boards will come out as the motherboards themselves come to shelves.

EKWB will also be making a water block for the GTX 780 DirectCU II card from Asus (ASUS GTX780-DC2-3GD5). The block will cover the GPU, the memory modules and also the VRM circuitry. It is expected to release around the same time as the motherboard water blocks.

EKWB also announced that while its current GTX 680 block for the Asus DirectCU II card works on the GTX 770 DirectCU II card, it will still be making a new version of the block that will feature the FC terminal. This block is expected to be released sometime in July.

    why the heck would they make one for a channel board? and making a waterblock for even the extreme board makes no sense when it performs a little lower than a gd65 gaming or a gigabyte sniper series board

    I don't know. Can't I wish they would make one for my motherboard? Sorry I'm not an expert on motherboards so I don't even know what a channel board is. For me water cooling is not only performance, it's looks as well. And I would buy a motherboard block even though I don't even need it because of the looks :)

    the channel boards are the mainstream boards. all the gold boards from asus, all the gd series of boards from msi, all the extreme boards from asrock, and all the boards from gigabyte up to the ud5 are the mainstream series. no one makes a block for that as they already know that customers who want to watercool are going to get a higher end board to make it worth it
