EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to release GIGABYTE® Z170X motherboard monoblock – EK-FB Z170X Monoblock. It’s compatible with three GIGABYTE® Z170X motherboard models – Gaming 5, Gaming 7 and UD5 TH.


EK-FB GA Z170X Monoblock is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for Intel® LGA-1151 socket Skylake® CPU and the following GIGABYTE® Z170X motherboards:

  • GA-Z170X-UD5 TH
  • GA-Z170X-Gaming 5
  • GA-Z170X-Gaming 7

Designed and engineered in cooperation with GIGABYTE®, 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.

Base of the monoblock is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal or acrylic glass material, depending on the variant. This monoblock is designed to not interfere with M.2 connectors on the GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 and GA-Z170X-Gaming 5.
