EKWB Momentum Monoblock for ASUS ROG Z690-I Strix

This is a complete, all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for Intel 12th gen Core series processors and is compatible with the LGA 1700 socketed ROG Strix Z690-I Gaming ITX motherboard. The monoblock uses the latest generation of EK Velocity² cooling engine to ensure the best possible CPU cooling without reducing the flow to other components. This water block directly cools the Alder Lake CPU and the VRM section. A special M.2 heatsink has been added to cool the front-mounted M.2 SSD drive. EK also added an additional I/O piece that carries the stock I/O cover, so the original look of this ROG Strix motherboard is preserved.

Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing the enthusiasts with a great cooling solution for high and stable overclocks. Like all other EK monoblocks, the EK-Quantum Momentum² ROG Strix Z690-I Gaming features a high-flow design and can be easily used with systems that use weaker water pumps or operate at lower pump speed settings. The Quantum Momentum² monoblock also comes with sophisticated D-RGB (addressable) lighting with a total of 14 LEDs. They connect to this ROG Strix motherboard’s standard 3-pin 5 V D-RGB addressable header called the “Aura Gen2 header.”

The base of the monoblock is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while the top is made of quality cast acrylic material. The nickel-plated brass screw-in standoffs are pre-installed and allow for easy installation.

The monoblock comes with a preinstalled digital (addressable) 3-pin 5 V D-RGB LED strip that connects to the motherboard’s 3-pin LED header, while it can be connected to 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 should be aligned with the +5V marking on the AURA Addressable Gen2 header.
