EKWB is back again with a new motherboard monoblock for custom liquid cooling – the EK-FB GA Z270X RGB. This one is built specifically with Gigabyte’s RGB lighting in mind, and will work on a heap of its new Z270 motherboards.
The monoblock uses the EK-Supremacy EVO design for cooling the CPU area, and the remainder is milled to fit around any motherboard parts and cools the VRM circuitry. Naturally, it retains a high-flow design, so it can easily be used in systems with weaker pumps or longer, more complex loops. Contrary to many other parts EKWB makes, this one only comes as a nickel-plated copper block with a clear acrylic top – considering the lighting, it’s hard to fault EKWB for not making a variant with an opaque black top.
The RGB lighting works through an included LED strip that has a 4-pin RGB header. They’ll work on supporting motherboards' RGB headers and headers on the right LED controllers. EKWB used standard G1/4” threads for mounting fittings, and the block comes with the necessary mounting mechanism, thermal grease, and thermal pads to ensure thermal contact with the VRM circuitry.
The EK-FB GA Z270X RGB supports the GA-Z270X-Gaming 7, GA-Z270X-Gaming K7, GA-Z270X-Gaming 5, GA-Z270X-Gaming K5, GA-Z270X-Ultra Gaming, GA-Z270-Phoenix Gaming, GA-Z270-Gaming 3, GA-Z270-Gaming K3, and the GA-Z270X-UD5.
Pricing sits at $137, and the block is available immediately for pre-order directly from EKWB.
