Compatibility of the EK-FB ASUS Z270I Strix RGB Monoblock with Z370-I - Page 4

post #31 of 45
This is for the RGB model. There is a recessed ring you can fit a strip into (looks about ~4mm thickness max. ~10mm height of strip)

Looks great!
I wonder what EKWB is doing atm.
The block is not in stock and some other blocks are being rebranded as "Z270/Z370".

Cheers! I'm not sure what the sensor is called on the z370i.. can anyone help me with this one? There are lots of temp sensors in HWMonitor but I honestly don't see much change between any of them under load

I noticed this too. EK should be crediting me if my information influenced a refresh of their products and compatability list. Free stuff pls! tongue.gif

This block converts easily to use the add_header on z370 if anyone is interested in a guide?

2mm hex screws to get the "strix" cover off the block (you can do it with the block mounted), chuck a WS2812B strip in (6 LEDs), make a plug for the header and away you go.

Happy to hear it works! thumb.gif

Did you use a 60led/m strip or a 144 one?
Did you have to glue it also?
Are there any width/height restrictions or will most led strips work?

Good questions!

60led/m is what EK used, so thats what I went with (to avoid oversaturation). My strip already has 3M adhesive on the back
The strip I used was 10mm wide, but a 12mm strip will fit with no problems. Height wise, 3-3.5mm is about right (my WS2812B strip fit with no problem).

Space is tight when tucking the wiring in on the right side, I wouldn't recommend using heatshrink like I did, just wrap some electrical tape to keep the thickness down. You will probably want to do what I did and have leads on both sides, to be able to extend the RGB elsewhere in the system. You could also just run the data wire out, and have a molex power the strips elsewhere to keep wiring down.
