EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing a new AMD AM5 socket-based monoblock, the EK-Quantum Momentum² ROG Crosshair X670E Hero D-RGB – Plexi. The monoblock is engineered specifically for the ROG Crosshair X670E HERO motherboard from ASUS. It features addressable D-RGB LEDs compatible with ASUS Aura Sync RGB control and offers a full lighting customization experience for every single diode at any given time. This Quantum monoblock is EK-Matrix7 compliant and allows the use of the stock I/O shield with LED implementation.
This is a complete, all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for AMD’s Ryzen 7000-series processors compatible with the AM5 socket on the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero motherboard. The monoblock packs the latest generation Velocity² cooling engine to ensure the best possible CPU cooling without reducing flow to other components. It directly cools the AMD Ryzen 7000-series CPU and VRM section.
The cooling liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing enthusiasts with an excellent solution for high and stable overclocks. Like other EK monoblocks, the EK-Quantum Momentum² ROG Crosshair X670E Hero D-RGB features a high-flow design and can be easily used with weaker water pumps or lower pump-speed settings. The cooling solution also comes with sophisticated D-RGB (addressable) lighting that connects to this ROG motherboard via the standard 3-pin 5 V D-RGB addressable header named Aura Gen 2.
The monoblock has a 3-pin 5 V D-RGB (addressable) LED strip that connects to the motherboard’s 3-pin LED header or any other supported 5 V 3-pin LED controller. This product is compatible with ASUS Aura Sync RGB control software. The arrow marking on the 3-pin D-RGB LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the AURA Addressable Gen 2 header.
You can always search EK’s Custom Loop Configurator database for compatible water blocks. The list of graphics cards and motherboards is being updated daily.
Since liquid cooling for PCs became widely available, there was only one standard across the market: the G1/4″ thread. EK recognized the flaws and limitations of this concept and introduced a new liquid cooling standard called the EK-Matrix 7.
The EK-Matrix 7 adds a new dimension where the height of the products and the distance between ports is managed in 7 mm increments. You’ve probably played with toy bricks, but maybe you didn’t think about how and why it works so well.
