EK releases their first acetal monoblock - supports ASUS' ROG Crosshair VI/VII Hero

Not everyone wants a clear acrylic water block.

Read more about EK's first Acetal covered monoblock that supports ASUS' CrossHair VI/VII Hero motherboards.

One of these days I'll change my name to Mark Bench

Agreed. I won't lie, I'm surprised the Ryzen has got this first over Intel.

I do like acetal a lot. A shame EK doesn't do acetal versions for the regular 115x boards anymore.

Acetal is OK. Doesn't hairline crack like acrylic but is pretty soft so very easy to damage. Looks nice though !

Eh, looks like nothing too special to me. A big square with standard ROG flare, meh. I won't buy EK blocks anymore anyway. Would not buy.
