Hi guys,
I am wanting to purchase this mobo for my CL THW10 build I am upgrading from a Asus R/E Ed 10. I am having trouble locating a monoblock for this mobo if anyone can point me in right direction would be greatly appreciated.
 
I sent a request to EK but havent heard back yet will post when I do.

Monoblocks look cool and all but not needed with the X299 Dark
 
Did you see the VRM analysis by Buildzoid? If not link is in this thread - https://forums.evga.com/G...Overkill-m2797431.aspx

Thank you. I found the same video also but just prefer the VRM to be liquid cooled if possible. This is why I am searching for a monoblock liquid cooling solution for this board.

Thank you yea I've looked everywhere. An EK rep on another forum was kind enough to respond to my PM, he said they don't manufacture them anymore because demand isn't there for EVGA mobo's. I asked if they would make me one if I paid a bit more, they said no. Shocking really since this is the best X299 board out IMO. Puzzling situation.

Some time ago i asked Mr. Käsbauer from the German office for a mainboard layout. Mr. Käsbauer wanted to ask in USA for this layout. Maybe one of the Administrator have a shorter way for asking for that.
 
The background:
I asked watercool for some vrm coolers (not monoblocks) for this board. He said he need a board or a layout for manufacturing theese coolers. So if its possible please sent me this layout and i will do my best for creating some high quality blocks.
 
I work for a retailer. My task is to build high quality custom pcs. But for now my customers are very angry about the waterblock situation. They say if there is no possible watercooling solution - they will not buy x299. And for that i am in the same opinion. The VRMs from the current plattform are hotter than hell and the big cooling manufacturers like Aquacomputer, watercool, bitspower etc are busy with building these 1 billion diffrent gpu blocks for 10x0 gpus. And my customers and i dont want to buy a asus or gigabyte board with a possible watercooling solution... Now you could say the Dark is much better than any other - right but here is a person who creates this topic and maybe he is in the same crisis like many others...
 
Hope we find a solution for the near future, otherwise i think it would be hard for some people buying a setup with the current platform...

Hello LKrieger, thank you for reaching out to us about this.

I will have to check with our product team to see if I am able to provide you with a suitable layout for this motherboard. We certainly understand the heat that is produced by the VRM's with the X299 chipset, which is why we have added a proper heatsink to the X299 Dark. Of course, for extreme cooling, I certainly agree with the desire to be able to use a block with these components.
 
I will try to get you the layout or an answer quickly!

If you have a moment, please rate my service. We appreciate the feedback!

Look in his thread in his signature, to see past projects. I bet he could make about anything. He has satisfied many with his motherboard blocks and GPU blocks. He will need the layout or possibly a MB for example. Good luck finding what you want.

Really appreciate the follow up by members here and EVGA, hope this gets resolved and even better for upcoming releases just to be able to have the option for motherboard liquid cooling beyond just the CPU would be a huge gift for fans and users of EVGA motherboard products.
 
This should be a top priority for the company going forward IMHO. EVGA will gain a lot more market share if the option existed, especially for there flagship mobo's at the very least.

It's not just my own bias, as I have seen and read the reviews from outsiders. The X299 Dark is one of the best motherboards (if not THE best) in this chipset. I think that it would be worthwhile for block options, since this is an extreme enthusiast board.
 
I still have not received a reply, as this is likely being looked into by our team. I will update as soon as I have additional information!

I was gonna mention the same thing!   But it is good that EVGA  is looking into it as I would be interested in looking for a mono block myself if I ever get the chance to upgrade to the Dark X299.

I might as well throw my +1 here as well - if there was one made for the Dark by either EVGA or nateman I would be interested in getting one

I'd like to see a monoblock for the EVGA X299 FTW K motherboard also. At least the X299 Dark has active cooling.

I sent an email to Daniel at SC I know from watching his videos they have designed and built custom water blocks, I mentioned this thread to him as well and the opportunity he had to start helping folks out with blocks for EVGA mobo's in need of help. I'll let you guys know when I hear back.
 
Fingers crossed.

Re: EVGA X299 Dark Monoblock 2018/04/09 22:40:25 (permalink)
What happen with Monoblock for X299 Dark. Why you don't call Barrow, Bykski or how they call to ask.
Maybe Nateman could help. Only for CPU/VRM. Chipset is not so necessary.
 
I look EVGA offer constant some Giveaways with EVGA X299 Dark picture, but no EVGA X299 Dark offer,  I check and than I see Z370 and gave up.
Maybe keep for Scavange Hunt. 
 
 
Anyway EVGA X299 Dark have good VRM Cooling. I would not wait Monoblock.
EKWB have new Supremacy EVO RGB Block. Probably is nice with White LED.

In enthusiast systems it's not about needing but also about wanting and aesthetics. If you have a big loop like mine in a TT900 a plain CPU block just doesn't look nice. I'm surprised not even Bitspower gave the Dark a go.
f the x299 Dark had a monoblock, I'd have bought one already, guaranteed.

Monoblock is nice thing but X299 Dark is higher class mobo than Apex. And off course Monoblock is for one generation with CPU block you can change platform in any moment, you can install on mATX, Mini ITX, anywhere. Dark is in same class with Rampage VI Extreme.
I would like EVGA X299 Dark + Koolance CPU-400 CPU Block + Koolance Silve Quick Disconnect Fittings and Tygon Norprene 13/10mm -3/8" 1/2" tubes.
That's my choice. Bad because I decide to stay on X99, now is to late. 
I would need to find money for nice motherboard, OK selling my platform I would need to add very little for i9-7900X.

Beautifull CPU Block for EVGA X299 Dark.

Watercool have amazing equipment, they look extremely durable.
I could only imagine their monoblock on X299 Dark.
But new CPU block from Koolance look amazing. 
It's hard decision Supremacy EVO or Koolance.
 
From motherboard I expect only few things...
1. stable
2. easy for overclocking
3. settings to drop voltage and clock in idle
4. durability
 
That's it. Nothing else.
i9-7900X have Turbo 4.7GHz... That mean for all 10 cores or only single core.
If 4.7GHz is only for single core I suppose perfect spot for OC is some 4.5GHz for all cores because default clocks are not low.

All 3 of these blocks will look amazing with the Dark

Though I have the second one on my Dark and it looks stunning
 
Those Turbo Frequencies they say, if I recall correctly, are just for one or a few selected cores. I can run my 7920X at 4.7GHz across all cores stable with 3200 Mesh :) When it gets cooler, I will see if I can go higher (the owner of the CPU before managed more than the 4.7GHz) Hint though, if you use adaptive for the Mesh voltage, it might cause freezes in Windows, so use override and set a fix voltage. Was a hint / tip from the owner of the CPU
 
 
Dark looks amazing with some white RGB RAM sticks (got the Trident Z RGB and set them to white, looks awesome) :)

Re: EVGA X299 Dark Monoblock 2018/05/11 23:38:17 (permalink)
I can say officially that I made mistake because stayed with X99.
I didn't know 2 things.
1. I didn't know I will like so much X299 Dark
2. I didn't know that i9-7900X will be available to me now for 650 euro.
 
That mean I would have 300 euro less than now, and I would not have Monoblock.
But I would have X299 high end motherboard instead X99 high end and 10 cores instead 6 cores.
To be honest for such difference I would not care for CPU block I would order Supremacy or new Koolance and that's it. 
Or maybe even Heatkiller IV PRO Acetal Silver-Black.
 
But guy who usually bring me hardware from Hungary say people mostly buy X99 to save cost.
250-300 euro for i7-6850K, i7-6900K is 550e now brand new... My plan is to buy i7-5960X on Ebay for 350-400$ soon.

All 3 of these blocks will look amazing with the Dark

Though I have the second one on my Dark and it looks stunning
 
Those Turbo Frequencies they say, if I recall correctly, are just for one or a few selected cores. I can run my 7920X at 4.7GHz across all cores stable with 3200 Mesh :) When it gets cooler, I will see if I can go higher (the owner of the CPU before managed more than the 4.7GHz) Hint though, if you use adaptive for the Mesh voltage, it might cause freezes in Windows, so use override and set a fix voltage. Was a hint / tip from the owner of the CPU
 
 
Dark looks amazing with some white RGB RAM sticks (got the Trident Z RGB and set them to white, looks awesome) :)





Than looks like X99 and X299 are not to different for some things.
It's same with Adaptive for Cache Voltage on my Rampage V Edition 10 and X99 platform.
Adaptive not work for Cache Voltage, only Manual and Offset. That mean if you left on Auto she will drop, if you increase Cache Frequency he will jump more than you want if computer is in High Performance Mode or some programs used more resources in Balanced Mode.
And than if you OC Cache Frequency it's best to set some low fix voltage as 1.200V example and OC. If I set up Adaptive it will not freeze, only not work voltage will stay max set in Adaptive constantly, no drop Cache Voltage if you increase value, only on default.
And because Cache voltage for 4.000MHz go to 1250V+ default
I decide to look on 1.200V and that was enough but I believe that limit is 50-100MHz more and I would need more voltage.
 
But ASUS increased default Cache Voltage with BIOS.
Before was default under load 2400MHz and everyone OC to 3500-4000MHz. Later I'm not sure did they change for RVE last BIOS version as well, but on RVE10 default Cache was not any more 2400MHz, it's 3000MHz in load and 1400MHz during low load or idle.

Hey guys,
 
Just so you know, I passed on some information about the X299 Dark to water-cool.

Hi Jakob,
 
The EVGA X299 Dark is arguably the best X299 motherboard on the market currently. Arguably better than the Asus Apex or the ASRock OC Formula. There is huge interest from the premium end of the enthusiast market about this board. On your website there is an article dated 19 Dec 17 which says that Watercool is interested in creating VRM water block solutions for X299, but that you need technical data. Well, I can help:
 
EVGA X299 DARK R1.0 CAD-assembly file, ZIP-archive. Password : xdevs.com
 
EVGA X299 DARK R1.0 CAD-assembly dimensions drawing, PDF-file
 
The source for this information was here: https://xdevs.com/guide/e299ocg/#darkf. The guy that wrote the article is Illya TiN Tsemenko who is one of EVGA’s development engineers.
 
I would love to see your company come up with a high quality VRM block for this incredible mother board. If you do, I can guarantee that I will buy it!
 
Best wishes to you, Simon.

Hey Simon,
thanks for providing the files and the link. This really helps us a lot! While we will most likely not produce a customized vrm block specifically for this board, it helps us in developing a universal vrm block.

While this stops short of the answer "yes, sure we will build one" that I am sure many of us would hope for, at least they are aware of some demand, they have the technical drawings done for them, and they might come up with a universal VRM solution.

So do we have any update about this? Any custom monoblock for the Dark? Would you think the EK monoblock for the Asrock board would fit? it is the closest looking PCB (vrm cpu) area of all.
