When we talk about the premium quality water cooling gear manufacturing, we simply cannot leave out the Ljubljana based EK Water Blocks. The company has had a long list of successful and excellent quality cooling solutions and now it is coming up with the ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard water cooling solution which is a X79 based 4th generation Intel Core i7 extreme overclocking LGA-2011 socket motherboard.
This EK-FB KIT ASUS R4BE water block kit is in itself a complete liquid cooling solution which has been designed exclusively for the ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard. The Intel X79 Express southbridge (PCH) will be directly cooled from these water blocks along with the power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module. This water block kit, with its high flow, is perfect to be used with systems which make use of weaker water pumps.

The pre-installed screw-in standoffs make room for easy and trouble-free installation as they make use of the original motherboard back plates. The water block kit is available in six different versions with prices ranging from 104.95€ to 114.95€.
