Patriot Viper 4 Blackout Series 3600MHz 64GB (2x32GB) (PVB464G360C8K) with EK-WB Monarch X4

Recommended Posts

Hey, i was just curious to if you think these modules will be able to fit an EK Monarch X4 waterblock.


The screw mounts look to be positioned right, but its hard to say if it would be compatible based purely of off that. 


Originally the block was build with dominator GT and platinum in mind, which had similar screw layout - EK since made a heatspreader for these.


what do you think? @bp9801

Here is an installation video using the EK heatspreaders for this:

Im pretty sure you have to remove the heatspeader. Its how dimms are normally watercooled. I think for a time Corsair dommiator had those hex screws and you could just plop the block on top without taking it apart..

The ICs are glued to the heatspeader, but it comes apart with a hairdryer.

Take them part and put these on.


@Mopeygoth  I just looked at the dimms compared to the G.Skill Ripjaw 5 in the video (which I also have). The PCB is the same height. You should good to go. I highly suggest using a hairdryer to remove the heatspeaders instead of pulling it apart like in the video. Unlike the Ripjaws, these WILL not come part without extreme force or applied heat.

Footage from the review video I never finished.
