EK-FB ASUS Z270I Strix RGB Monoblock
This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for the new Intel® Z270 Express Chipset LGA-1151 ASUS® ROG Strix Z270I Gaming motherboard that supports the latest 7th generation and 6th generation Intel® Core™ Processors as well.
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 Intel LGA-1151 socket type CPU and the power regulation (MOSFET) module as well. Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing the enthusiasts with a great solution for high and stable overclocks. Like with every EK monoblock, ASUS Z270I Strix RGB features high flow design and this monoblock can be easily used with the system using a weaker water pump as well.
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!
