Based in Chengdu, China
Since their launch, Coffee Lake desktop CPUs have been somewhat limited in availability. In order to fix the supply issues, Intel notified its customers that they will soon begin receiving parts assembled in China. To keep up with this strong demand, the company is adding a new assembly-and-test site in Chengdu, China.

G.Skill has announced their TridentZ memory kit, which has been designed and tested in combination with Intel's Coffee Lake processors. When a new CPU architecture hits the market memory vendors usually conduct extensive stability tests before launching their kits and G.Skill is certainly no exception in that regard.
Soon another record?
A few weeks ago, Intel has released a new series of HEDT processors. Meanwhile K|ngp|n is testing the new flagship Intel Core i9-7980XE on 3DMark Time Spy Extreme. Thanks to a rather substantial overclock on the CPU as well as on the GPU and a very nicely overclocked memory he's been able to hit more than 7K points regarding the global score. We wouldn't be surprised if rather sooner than later a new record would be incoming from the master of 3DMark benchmarks himself.
Support for Star Wars: Battlefront II
It seems like we are spending more time updating drivers than playing new games lately. During the past month we have received four new AMD drivers and it's more or less the same with NVIDIA. AMD has just released its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.11.2 graphics driver software. This version should offer better support for Star Wars: Battlefront II.
Available in 120 and 140mm size
With WindForce 2X GeForce cooler
For Gaming and Fatal1ty series
Following the launch of Intel's X299 chipset, EKWB has released a new monoblock for fünf ASRock motherboards: the X299 OC Formula, the X299 Taichi, the X299 Killer SLI/ac, the Fatal1ty X299 Gaming K6 and the Fatal1ty X299 Professional Gaming i9. This monoblock will apparently add water cooling to both the CPU and the VRM, thanks to a huge single water block. The EK-FB ASRock X299 RGB Monoblock is compatible with ASRock's RGB LED, which will allow you to create neat looking setups thanks to customizable lighting.
According to a news published on Techpowerup, EK Water Blocks have had an estrangement from the majority of their top management including their CEO of over four years. This is an important change that can affect the PC DIY water cooling market due to the strong presence of the company in this envirorment.

Available for early 2018
Over the last couple of months, there have been whispers regarding an additional Intel chipset and new CPU coming after Coffee Lake and Z370. Today the first Z390 motherboard seems to have made an appearance online. According to the latest rumors, Intel Z390 chipset should be compatible with 8-core processors.
With 4K panel
Acer has expanded its monitor lineup once again with a new model featuring a 31.5-inch, 3840 x 2160 resolution and an VA panel. Furthermore it supports AMD FreeSync and Acer's so called "Black Boost" feature, which can automatically boost the gamma value and therefore make dark scenarios in games better visible.
