EK is releasing new monoblocks for ASUS® ROG® Rampage VI Extreme & Apex


A special motherboard requires a special water block, so the tradition with monoblocks for ASUS® ROG® RAMPAGE series motherboards continues. EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer is releasing new LGA-2066 socket based monoblocks made to fit ASUS® ROG® RAMPAGE VI Extreme and Apex motherboards. The EK-FB ASUS ROG R6E RGB Monoblocks have integrated 4-pin RGB LED strips which make them compatible with ASUS® Aura Sync, thus offering a full lighting customization experience!



EK-FB ASUS ROG R6E RGB Monoblock

A complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solutions for two ASUS® Intel® X299 Chipset based motherboards that support new Intel® Core™ X-series LGA-2066 socket processors. These monoblocks are compatible with the following ASUS® ROG® motherboards:

  • ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme
  • ASUS ROG Rampage VI Apex


Designed and engineered in cooperation with ASUS®, these monoblocks use the award-winning EK-Supremacy EVO cooling engine to ensure best possible CPU cooling. These water blocks directly cool the Intel® LGA-2066 socket type CPU, as well as the power regulation (MOSFET) module. Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing the enthusiasts with a great solution for high and stable overclocks. The base of the monoblocks are made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is available in two options, one is made of POM Acetal with an aesthetical aluminum cover, and the other is made out of acrylic glass material.



Like with every EK monoblock EK-FB ASUS ROG R6E RGB, features high flow design and it can be easily used with weaker pumps or silent water pump settings as well. This kind of efficient VRM cooling on an X299 platform additionally brings down the CPU temperatures compared to the traditional CPU water block and stock VRM heatsink cooling solution.



These X299 platform based monoblocks also come with a new redesigned cold plate which is becoming a standard feature on all EK monoblocks. The design ensures that the monoblocks have better mechanical contact with the IHS of Intel® Core™ X-series LGA-2066 socket based processors, thus enabling better thermal transfer. The base of the monoblock is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality acrylic glass material or POM Acetal. The nickel plated brass screw-in standoffs are pre-installed and allow for easy installation.



The monoblock is equipped with a 4-pin RGB LED strip that connects to the motherboard’s 4-pin LED header or it can be connected to any other 4-pin LED controller. The LED strip cover can easily be removed for adjusting the cable orientation or replacing the LED strip with a custom solution as well!


You can always check for compatible water blocks by using EK Cooling Configurator database where compatible graphics cards and motherboards are being added to the list on a daily basis:



EK-FB ASUS ROG R6E RGB Monoblocks are made in Slovenia and are available for pre-order through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. All pre-order will start shipping Monday, 25th of September, 2017! In the table below you can find MSR prices with VAT included.

  • EK-FB ASUS ROG R6E RGB Monoblock – Nickel 119.95€
  • EK-FB ASUS ROG R6E RGB Monoblock – Acetal+Nickel 119.95€

Anyone else run this on a 7980xe yet?

My first pass results are not good. Flow is good. Pump/Fans are maxed EK 280 rad not keeping up with a 110i AIO that I had on it last night.

Heat doesn't seem to be getting to the rad. The fittings are "not cold", but the 110i's rad was very warm.

Doesn't seem "bad enough" for not seated or gross error, but it should be able to stomp an AIO. It's behaving like its not putting the same amount of pressure on the chip as the AIO. Chip is delidded/LM.

EK - pump 100% (PWM unplugged) fans maxed (1250 fans) - same everything but the mono-block as I had used on my 6950/R5E


Corsair 110i push/pull fans maxed

Update: torn down I'm seeing the block is not sitting flat (see below). This CPU is delided with LM applied, but not resealed. As such, the IHS may be sitting a little lower than stock and creating the "triangle" that results in thicker TIM on one side. All 4 nylon washers show a similar indentation and the thermal pads on the chokes show signs of good seat (relief of features of the block).

I wouldn't have thought the difference in IHS height due to missing silicon glue would be enough to cause an issue of this magnitude?


EDIT/UPDATE: I think I've confirmed my theory - I made some small adjustments and I'm seeing incremental improvement. I will have to make larger adjustments to level the block after delid...

Cekim, how are you liking the block as of now? Is the thermal tape for the chokes included, or would I need to pick some up separately? How much does it help temps?

My issues were due to delidding without re-gluing. The IHS is now a little lower, so I had to "tune" the thermal pad to level everything out as described in my prior post.

It comes with pads for the chokes and the VRMs (as pictured).

In terms of performance - VRM is much improved - 90-109 previously to 75-85 now. In terms of core temps, AIO vs monoblock hasn't brought a huge improvement, but the AIO was 100% fans push/pull where now with the monoblock I can get similar or better temps with 1150RPM fans at less than 100% on a 420 or shortly a 360x60 push/pull will also provide for a quiter setup.

Here's where I am @4.5GHz all-core monoblock/delid:

900x900px-LL-f2374316_4.5_adaptive_m0.65_360pp.png

Screen cap chopped top-2 cores off, but they are among the color cores - 58 and 60C if memory serves for the max. That's after 15m of realbench and temps have stabilized...

Thanks for the info, those are definitely good temps at 4.5 through a 420 with 1150 rpm fans.
