EK Collaborates with In Win for the EK-Quantum 909EK Silver Limited Edition Case

EK, the leader in custom loop liquid cooling is proud to announce the launch of a limited edition product which is a result of a successful collaboration between EK and In Win, the renowned case manufacturer. It started as the "best build of CES" and now it is sold in a limited edition under the name EK-Quantum In Win 909EK - Silver Limited Edition.

The EK-Quantum In Win 909EK case is a unique and heavily modified version of the very popular high-end In Win 909 case. The case itself is wider than a regular In Win 909 case in order to be able to fit two thick 480 mm XE radiators with their fans. It features an integrated distribution plate which acts also as a motherboard tray, and it can support a dual D5 pump setup. This makes it really special as there is no similar case on the market. The EK-Quantum In Win 909EK is a limited edition case and it is limited to only 200 pieces.
The In Win 909EK case is a part of the EK Quantum Line of products, which represents perfection in design. The unique "floating" motherboard tray acts as a coolant reservoir with several integrated cable routing points as well. It is fitted with multiple industry-standard G1/4" threaded inlets and outlets and offers an easy installation of hard tubes where little to no bending of the tubing is required. The case is able to support up to two thick 480 XE (60 mm thick) radiators, features two dedicated D5 pump mounting places, and it is able to support up to four GPUs.

The other shell is made of 4 mm thick aluminium, and its chamfered edge design and sleek anodized aluminium are beautifully crafted to masterfully create a smooth enclosure. 2 USB Type-A ports, 1 USB Type-C port, the power button, and headphone/microphone ports are located on the inside of the case.

Technical Specifications of the case:
  • Model name: In Win 909EK
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 255 x 575 x 540 mm
  • Color: Silver
  • Tempered Glass Panel: No
  • Power Supply Compatibility: ATX Length up to 250 mm
  • Motherboard Compatibility: ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX (and E-ATX up to 277 mm wide)
  • Maximum GPU Length: 365 mm
  • Maximum GPU Width: 180 mm
Fan and Radiator Compatibility:
  • 2x 480 mm XE Radiator + one set of fans for each radiator

At the rate rectangular distro panels/reservoirs are catching on, I'm half-expecting more PC case makers to have at least one watercool-focused flagship case have a distro panel or reservoir as part of the aesthetic, even if it's just as the motherboard tray. Sure, it might not actually get used for watercooling, but some could do fancy RGB lighting with the "floating motherboard" look, or even fill up the distro plate with colored liquid and a light accent behind it.

No filter for the rads section...?

Well... it looks better without... but still... filters a good... I kinda don't care after I bought a cheap and small air compressor and can blowout so everything is clean and neat.

Other than that, ye, I like the design for sure, especially the front double 480 part, I don't care about the vertical tank much.

The purpouse of filtering is to prevent dust building up on hard-to-access parts and -in modding- parts in general which are visible. In this case, the radiators are easy to access and the air won't touch any other visible parts. The thing is good to go as is.

How easy is to clean a radiator without compressed air? Have you tried it ever?

Yep, the corporations basically coopt anything that's cool, so like with the manifolds (distro plates), they've made them so commonplace at this point that anyone can buy them and effectively rendering them not cool anymore.

2 USB Type-A ports, 1 USB Type-C port, the power button, and headphone/microphone ports are located on the inside of the case
Say whut.......

Either my eyes are playing tricks on me, or am I to understand that either:

A) The one side has no cover and is completely open, which would be less than ideal at best, OR

B) I have to remove the side cover every time I want to power up the rig and/or use the USB/audio ports etc ??

Also, $1650....pfff....limited edition or not, but who the hell would pay that much for a case... I know it looks cool, is well built and includes the cooling plate & all, but w.T.f.....

My vacuums crevice tool has a brush, works great.

Not always. You do not get to clean the fans here.

It is not an easy task for most of people for sure.

Damaging fins of the rads with mechanical brush way too easy.

Just lightly follow “the grain” and its small enough to clean fans as well.

Ok, so why would anyone want a case that has no cover on 1 side ?

Not me, not for any reason...

LOL at everyone complaining about a case they can't afford.

This wasn't/isn't built to be in every home. this isn't build to be for the masses. This is a statement piece at best, if you can do it you will. Most people spend $80 on a case. This isn't just "a case".

Also think about it if you are buying this you will need it along with $4k + on a system, you hopefully are not on a "budget build" if you are building in this case, I mean in less your budget is $6K+ LOL

I personally would love this case and if I could I would, but $1500 is about what I had into my last PC build. :|

Well, even I[I][B]F[/B][/I] I did have $1650 free cash to blow on a new rig, I'm 1000% sure I would spend the majority of it on top end components instead of the case.

There are plently of really nice cases available for $300 or less, many of which are nearly as nice as this one in many ways....

And that would leave over $1300 for the components, which we all know would allow us to build one hell of machine that would last for years....

It's a high-maintenance showpiece for making a statement - it's not a practical case for daily use.
The fact they are only making 200 in total would mean that practicality isn't a consideration.

The side panels aren't really as necessary as they are for a normal fan-cooled case; Everything is supposed to be watercooled so there's no need to create a sealed air path from intake to exhaust.

InWin makes some really nice cases.

EK makes some overpriced middle of the road gear.

I bet these will sell out to the EK die hard fans but that's one hell of a premium to pay.

but...but ..will it be this case?

joking aside, i think there is a market for this style of case. there's definitely a possibility of making a cheaper version of it.
