EKWB Unveil its Quantum Momentum² ROG Maximus Z690 Hero Monoblock

EK Water Blocks (EKWB) has announced the launch of its new Quantum Momentum² ROG Maximus Z690 Hero. This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for Intel 12th generation Alder Lake processors and the monoblock is compatible with the LGA 1700 socketed ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Hero motherboard. This monoblock uses the latest generation of EK Velocity² cooling engine to ensure the best possible CPU cooling while not reducing flow to other components. This water block directly cools the Intel Alder Lake CPU, VRM section, and the LAN controller.

Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing the enthusiasts with a great solution for high and stable overclocks. Like with every EKWB monoblock, the EK-Quantum Momentum² ROG Maximus Z690 Hero features a high flow design and it can be easily used with the system using weaker water pumps or lower pump speed settings as well. The Quantum Momentum² monoblock also comes with sophisticated D-RGB (addressable) lightning with a total of 8 LEDs. They connect to a standard 3-pin 5 V D-RGB addressable header, named Aura Gen2 header on this ROG motherboard.

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.

A Digital (addressable) 3-pin 5 V D-RGB LED strip is installed in the monoblock that connects to the motherboard’s 3-pin LED header or 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 is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the AURA Addressable Gen2 header.
