EKWB Launches ROG Crosshair VIII Motherboard Waterblock Bridge

EK Water Blocks (EKWB) has today announced its support for the market-favourite ROG Crosshair VIII Formula motherboard with a unique, patent-pending liquid distribution VRM Bridge. The EK-Quantum Momentum VRM Bridge ROG Crosshair VIII Formula D-RGB is a purpose-engineered connection piece that bridges the existing integrated CrossChill EK III VRM cooling and the CPU water block into a single entity. The ROG Crosshair VIII Formula is the carrier of the iconic Maximus motherboard series, while the EK-developed VRM Bridge solution will help bring out its full potential.

The EK-Quantum Momentum VRM Bridge is the only off-the-shelf solution that will bridge multiple liquid cooling components with a unique mounting mechanism. It is specially made for the ROG Crosshair VIII Formula, and upgrading from any previous motherboard will be easy since you’ll be able to reuse any of the existing AMD AM4-socket-compatible EK-Quantum Velocity CPU water blocks.

EKWB’s RnD team spent countless hours developing and perfecting this VRM Bridge solution. And since diamonds are made under pressure, after several iterations, the result was a second-to-none diamond-shaped product that impeccably integrates with the aesthetics of the ROG Crosshair VIII Formula motherboard.

The voltage regulating module cooler of the Formula motherboard has two operating regimes – the CrossChill EK III lets you cool the VRM with either air or water. Water cooling will provide lower temperatures, and in doing so, improve stability during high overclock frequencies. The redesigned cooling channels inside the cooling block have wider copper fins, delivering up to 29.3°C lower MOSFET temperatures when cooled by water.

The new EK-Quantum Momentum VRM Bridge will replace the standard approach to connecting the integrated CrossChill EK III with the liquid cooling loop. Instead of using several angled and four tubing fittings, you only need EK’s VRM Bridge (plus two fittings that would be used on the CPU block anyway). The Bridge acts as a single entity, channelling coolant through the CPU water block and VRM cooling block with two connection points.

A unique mounting and locking solution have been developed exclusively for the EK-Quantum Momentum VRM Bridge. The user-friendly locking system is operated in just a few simple steps. This allows for the CPU water block and the integrated ROG Crosshair VIII Formula VRM cooling block to be connected in a few minutes. There is no need to mount several angled fittings, cut tubes to size, and then connect all that together – the EKWB Bridge solution simplifies the whole process.

The EK-Quantum Momentum VRM Bridge ROG Crosshair VIII Formula D-RGB is CNC-milled out of a single piece of high-grade glass-like cast acrylic top cover. The entire VRM Bridge slides onto special nickel-plated barb push-in fittings, while the 2 mm thick stainless steel base plate acts as the locking mechanism that latches to the barb fittings.

Price & Availability

The EK-Quantum Momentum VRM Bridge ROG Crosshair VIII Formula is now available for pre-order through the EKWB Webshop and Partner Reseller Network with a formal release scheduled for mid-July. – If you do, therefore, want to learn more about this cooling solution, you can check out the official product website link below:
