The newest addition to Bitspower lineup of water blocks is the ROG Maximus XI Apex Monoblock. This monoblock is specifically designed for the Z390 platform. The new unit features a brushed aluminum finish along with underlying RGB lights.
The OLED display uses a single wire to power the display and the RGB lights. It uses a 5V input and can use up to .07 watts. The block is made of clear CNC machined acrylic which allows the lights to radiate through the block. The cold plate is made of high-quality copper (C1100). Bitspower always releases quality products, so I wouldn’t doubt the quality of this monoblock.
The integrated RGB LEDs can be controlled by the motherboard through 3-pin or 4-pin RGB headers and supports the major board partners, like Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync, and ASRock Polychrome, along with with Razer’s RGB LED control software, Chroma. All you need to do is to plug it into your header and synchronize it to the rest of the RGB in your PC. It was specifically for ROG Maximus XI Apex which means you should use Asus Aura Sync.
