EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to release ASUS® MAXIMUS VIII motherboard monoblock – EK-FB ASUS M8G Monoblock. It’s compatible with three ASUS® MAXIMUS VIII motherboard models – Hero, Ranger and Gene.


EK-FB ASUS M8G Monoblock is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for Intel® LGA-1151 socket Skylake® CPU and the following ASUS® MAXIMUS VIII motherboards:


Designed and engineered in cooperation with ASUS®, this monoblock uses award winning EK-Supremacy EVO cooling engine to ensure best possible CPU cooling. This water block directly cools Intel® LGA-1151 socket type CPU and power regulation (MOSFET) module as water flows directly over all critical areas. It is a very high flow water block that can be easily used with the system using weaker water pumps.
