EKWB has announced a new water cooling kit for a motherboard; this time it's for the Asus Rampage IV Black Edition. It will be known as the EK-FB KIT ASUS R4BE.
The water cooling kit is built to cool all the critical components of the motherboard, which includes the VRM circuitry and the X79-Express chipset. Because these two are not located close enough together in a viable path, EKWB has opted to use two water blocks rather than one larger block.
As always, the water blocks feature the high-flow design, meaning that they can be used in conjunction with weaker pumps or in longer, more complex loops.
Included in the packaging are the two water blocks, a few thermal pads, and of course the mounting mechanism. The kits will also be available in six different versions, as detailed in the table below:
