nanias1) So do we have any update about this? 2) Any custom monoblock for the Dark? 3) Would you think the EK monoblock for the Asrock board would fit? it is the closest looking PCB (vrm cpu) area of all.
SimonOcean1) No.2) No. And I spoke to one of Watercool about this. They have no intention to create one for the X299 Dark. I doubt if any of the others would either given X299 is mid life and X399 / TR provides way better value than Basin Falls. Also because the X299 Dark already has good VRM cooling whereas the others with mono blocks don't3) No. Would not. My advice is use the existing VRM air cooler, get a CPU waterblock only and be happy. You will get better CPU cooling anyway without dumping the VRM heat into that loop anyway and the VRMs can live with being a bit toasty, more so than the CPU die.
psychicfriendI think I have an EVGA Dark monoblock that I got from EKWB and never used, I'd have to double-check.The reason I didn't use it is that I'd have to strip a bunch of the "dark" custom cooling parts from the mobo.
startekselvaguys don't go for mono block its waste of money and DARK already having best thermal design look at buildzoidhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUBR57lRy5khttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQdtqisijkshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DICvLJbefYreview they are impressed by the R&D design kudos to EVGA and KINGPIN AKA Vincent Lucido
