EK®, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, releases a new Momentum Monoblock for ROG® Maximus XII Hero – an Intel® Z490 chipset-based motherboard. The EK-Quantum Momentum ROG Maximus XII Hero monoblock is made in Plexi and Acetal versions, with a Plexi model featuring addressable D-RGB LEDs compatible with ASUS® AURA Sync software that offers full lighting customization for every single diode, at any given time.

EK-Quantum Momentum Maximus XII Hero Monoblock

This is a complete all-in-one (CPU and motherboard) liquid cooling solution for Intel Socket 1200 Series Processors. The monoblock is covering the entire VRM section of the ROG Maximus XII Hero motherboard.

This monoblock boasts the latest generation Velocity cooling engine, used in the EK Quantum Lineup to ensure the best possible CPU cooling without reducing flow to other components. It cools the CPU, as well as the voltage regulation (MOSFET) module. Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing the enthusiasts with an excellent solution for high and stable overclocks. Like every EK monoblock, the EK-Quantum Momentum Maximus XII Hero features a high flow design, easily used in systems with weaker water pumps or lower pump speed settings. The Plexi version of this monoblock comes with sophisticated addressable D-RGB lightning, which connects to a standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB addressable header on the ROG Maximus XII Hero.

Matte Black Non-RGB Acetal Version

The monoblock is made in two variants, with both sporting nickel-plated electrolytic copper base, while the top is CNC-machined out of either high-quality cast-acrylic or durable black POM acetal. The nickel-plated brass screw-in standoffs are all pre-installed and allow for easy and fast installation of the monoblock. The acetal version offers NO RGB support whatsoever, and it comes in an all-new matte black finish.

EK-Quantum Momentum Maximus XII Hero monoblocks are made in Slovenia, Europe. The Plexi model is available for order through the EK Webshop or EK Partner Reseller Network, while the Acetal version is available for pre-order and expected to ship out on November 4, 2020. In the table below you can see the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP).
