EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear provider, will soon release new Full-Board (FB) water block for ASUS flagship AMD AM3+ socket Crosshair V Formula-Z motherboard.
The upcoming EK-FB ASUS C5F-Z for ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z motherboard will be a single piece Full-Board water block which will directly cool AMD 990FX northbridge and the power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module. Due to the budget nature of this water block the AMD SB950 southbridge will remain cooled using ASUS factory provided heatsink . This water cooling solution will require two G1/4 threaded fittings and will sport a high flow design therefore posing a minimal flow restriction to the water cooling circuit.
EK are a frontrunner in the watercooling scene, manufacturing attractive yet functional products that are in use by many across the globe. EK’s latest line, CSQ, is a fusion of sharp edges and rounded curves, designed to fit stealthily into any system without compromising the aesthetics of any particular component – yet standing out by itself all the same.
Today I’m working with EK’s H30 HFX 360, a complete water cooling kit that provides their latest and greatest CPU block, the Supremacy, with a full 64mm thick 360mm radiator. Also provided in the kit are all the required fittings, a pump, a reservoir, tubing and all mounting hardware. We’re very excited to test this kit, and we hope you are too. Keep reading as we unbox, install, and test the performance of EK’s kit, along with my own personal feelings towards the end.
