RGB LEDs are in everything now. Keyboards, mice, video cards, fans and even RAM. Waterblocks are no exception, and cooling company EKWB has unveiled an RGB LED monoblock built specifically with Gigabyte's Z270 motherboards in mind: the EK-FB GA Z270X RGB Monoblock.

In case the name didn't tip you off, the Z270X RGB Monoblock covers both the CPU and the motherboard's power regulation modules. EKWB says its the block should offer high-enough flow to work well even with weaker water pumps and longer cooling loops. The base of the block is crafted from nickel-plated copper topped with acrylic glass material. This particular model doesn't come with a black acrylic top option because, you know, LEDs.

The block's RGB LED lighting is compatible with Gigabyte's RGB Fusion headers, and is powered through a 4-pin header that EKWB says will be compatible with both LED controllers and other motherboards with lighting controls. This should help gamers coordinate all the blinkenlights filling the inside of their systems.

The list of compatible motherboards includes:

  • GA-Z270X-Gaming 8
  • GA-Z270X-Gaming 7
  • GA-Z270X-Gaming K7
  • GA-Z270X-Gaming 5
