"EK-FB ASUS M5E - Acetal + Nickel"EK-FB ASUS M5E water block kit is a complete liquid cooling solution for ASUS Maximus V Extreme motherboard. The water blocks directly cools Intel Z77 southbridge (PCH), PLX PEX 8474 PCIe lane splitter as well as power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module. It is a high flow water block that can be easily used with systems using weaker water pumps.
Base of the waterblock is made of nickel plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal material. The sealing is performed by quality rubber gaskets.
Water block is mounted with enclosed M2.5x4 DIN7985 and M2,5x8 DIN7991 screws and PVC washers. The 2.1mm nickel plated brass screw-in standoffs are already preinstalled and allow for easy installation.
Enclosed thermal pad is used on voltage regulator modules to improve cooling performance of the waterblock. On the southbridge (PCH) and PCIe lane splitter chip please use any electrically non-conductive thermal grease, e.g. Gelid GC-Extreme.

EK Water Blocks are the largest company for watercooling components, expressing super-high standards of build quality, design and performance through their entire catalogue of products. When a new non-reference graphics card is released, EK are more often than not the first company to produce and release a waterblock for that unit, all while never wavering those ever-high standards. This proves extreme engineering competence from EK and this is translated in to some of the best reservoirs, pumps, water blocks, radiators and watercooling fittings that you can possibly purchase on the market. EK also produce other watercooling essentials such as PWM splitter cables, cooling fluids and static-pressure-optimised fans to complete your setup.
