Liquid cooling expert EKWB has dropped a new water block designed to cool down the X570 ROG Crosshair VIII. \n \nDubbed the EK-Quantum Momentum, the manufacturer supposedly used a modern cooling engine on the water block. The new design features high performance coupled with low restriction. Also, for those who want to showcase their build, the water block features lighting capabilities. The LED strip can be controlled by the Aura Sync, which provides you with plenty of customization options. \n \n \n \nThe water block was manufactured using a CNC machine to sculpt the shape of the copper. Afterward, the material was plated with nickel. The cover for the block is made out of acrylic, which explains the translucency. It allows the RGB LED strip to stand out from behind the cover. The two portions are glued to the flexible rubber gasket in between to prevent leaks. EKWB also subjected the EK-Quantum Momentum water block to intense pressure to guarantee a leak-free product. \n \nLast week, ASUS released the ROG Crosshair VIII Hero, which features an AMD X570 motherboard with built-in Wi-Fi 6. The board also features PCIe 4.0, 2.5Gbps LAN, 16 power stages and RGB lighting (Aura Sync). All in all, you can find 12 USB ports in the rig, and eight of them are second-generation speeds. \n \nThe Crosshair VIII Hero is equipped with the patented ROG audio to deliver high-fidelity sound to your headset or speakers. \n \nAs motherboards go, the ROG Crosshair is right up there in terms of price in the mid-range category. It is designed to be paired with the Ryzen 2000 and 3000 chips. You have four slots for DIMMS that can support up to 128GB of RAM (DDR4). \n \nThe EKWB water block is billed as an all-in-one solution for Ryzen processors. It will directly cool down the AM4 socket and the voltage regulation module. The cooling is designed in such a way that liquid directly cools down all the crucial areas. This allows users to overclock without worrying about stability. You can even use the water block even if you have a weak water pump. \n \nThe manufacturer adopts its high-flow cooling design, which supposedly avoids a restricted fluid flow. Although the portion that covers the CPU features restrictive channels, the fluid will travel from above the CPU. The liquid will then be evenly distributed to the right and left. \n \nThe EKWB water block for the ASUS ROG Crosshair is very easy to install. You simply need two connector fittings, and you are good to go.
