EK-FB ASUS C6H RGB Monoblock
EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer is proving its market leadership once again by releasing the first ever AM4 socket based monoblock tailor made for the ASUS® ROG Crosshair VI Hero motherboard. The EK-FB ASUS C6H RGB Monoblock has an integrated 4-pin RGB LED strip which makes it compatible with ASUS® Aura Sync, thus offering a full lighting customization experience!

EK-FB ASUS C6H RGB Monoblock
This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for the new AMD® X370 Chipset AM4 socket based ASUS® ROG Crosshair VI Hero gaming motherboard that supports the latest generation of AMD® Ryzen™ and 7th Generation A-series/Athlon™ processors.

Designed and engineered in cooperation with ASUS®, 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 ASUS C6H features high flow design and this monoblock can be easily used with the system using a weaker water pump as well.

The world’s very first AM4 socket based monoblock also comes with a redesigned cold plate. The new design 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.

The monoblock is equipped with a 4-pin RGB LED strip that connects to the motherboard’s 4-pin LED header or it can be connected to any other 4-pin LED controller. The LED strip cover can easily be removed for adjusting the cable orientation or replacing the LED strip with a custom solution as well!
