    Do they offer better performance or just cheaper to manufacture?

    EK will make a monoblock. Whether they will offer separate VRM blocks for X299 boards I do not know. Performance of single blocks is better, (assuming separate loops). Monoblocks look nicer, are easier to work with from a loop plumbing/space/cost perspective, so the market for them is growing. No clear answer to this.

    Showcase builds do look nice with monoblocks. My current system uses one. For the next, if someone makes nice separate blocks, I may go separate loop for the VRM. I have the space for one more rad.

    For separate VRM/CPU blocks, I'm keeping an eye on the Watercool guys (of Heatkiller fame). Some of their stuff looks ace.

    I'm using the old Rampage IV Black Edition with a split PCH/VRM/CPU blocks in a huge Caselabs box, and I personally love the aesthetics of them extra fittings.. Makes a dual loop less boring in my opinion. Would be nice to see EK giving users the option to choose.

    IF a mono block is the only option, I'd have to buy the RAM blocks just to make the loop look better..
