ZADAK Announces a New Flagship Compact Water Cooled PC with the MOAB II ELITE

ZADAK, a leading provider of PC enthusiast components, introduces the MOAB II ELITE, the next gen. compact water cooled PC case into their growing line of products. The MOAB II ELITE is a compact case (311 mm x 193 mm x 371 mm), built around the patented CNC-milled aluminium water distribution plate. The distribution plate is meticulously designed and manufactured with built-in water channels to reduce unnecessary tubing for clean builds. The MOAB II ELITE is now compatible with graphics card of up to 280 mm in length and most m-ATX motherboards. Other notable features include the world's first capacitive touch switch for powering on/off, a digital display providing real-time water temperature measurements, and customizable ARGB accent lighting.

The MOAB II ELITE also features the patented CNC-milled aluminium water distribution plate, that eliminates unnecessary tubing. The unit itself is hidden in the center of the case. While this creates a compact build, it also reduces the risk of leaking and cracking. In addition, the case includes a 240 mm radiator connected to the water distribution plate, which is strategically placed on the backside.
Smart Detection and Monitoring
For monitoring even the most power-hungry systems, the MOAB II ELITE is equipped with a digital display for real-time water temperature measurements. Users will have an accurate display of their PC water cooling temperature levels to avoid overheating. Also included is the water level indicator, which is found on the side of the case. This additional feature displays the water cooling levels so users will know when they need to make necessary adjustments.

Compact and Compatible
While maintaining its compact size, the MOAB II ELITE has updated the connecting outlet to the CPU block, allowing it to adjust horizontally and vertically making it compatible with most m-ATX motherboards. In addition, The MOAB II ELITE is now compatible with any graphics cards of up to 280mm in length, and easily slotted on the side of the case.
Touch and Slide to Power On
The MOAB II ELITE features the world's only capacitive touch power switch. This one-of-a-kind intelligent design operates the on/off function when users slide their finger across the capacitive strip, a demonstration of ZADAK's PC innovation.

Because touch lamps don't count, nor does the NZXT Kraken Z63 AIO with temp display on the pump block, and nobody has ever done ARGB right?

who in their right mind would watercool their cpu and put a BLOWER grpahics card in the system? Isn't the point of watercooling to make your PC quiet or at least bearably loud for better oc?

Im sure the card was there because it fits in with the whole aesthetic of the build. You DONT NEED to go with a blower style of card if you purchase the case.

99% of the time these sort of pictures are just for illustrative purposes.

I totaly get that you dont need to, but i mean if it is for illustrative purposes, then why not use a fullcover watercooled Graphics card? that would (imho) be more illustrative.
They also did that for the first MOAB btw. and that was super sexy!

EDIT: Wait a second: CNC-Aluminium Distro Plate?? :twitch:
Why? Is the CPU-Block and Radiator also Aluminium?

From that quote they're only saying the power switch is a first, and I would assume they mean in the PC space rather than in the world at all. The display isn't innovative, but certainly useful and notable through not being particularly common. As for the rest... meh. Neat hybrid of a test bench and enclosure I guess. Not for me though.

It looks like they have a version with a GPU block, but still only a 240mm radiator. More, they're using a 500W PSU to cool a 2080 (minimum) and your choice of red or blue.

I think they're an integrator? Or maybe they just have really limited compatibility? The website doesn't make it very clear.

500W for a 2080 is no problem whatsoever, unless you have a heavily OC'd 10900K. Even a 2080 Ti doesn't hit 500W gaming system power draw with a normal CPU (AnandTech saw 451 at the wall with an overclocked i7-7820X, or slightly above 400W internal power draw when accounting for PSU losses). The 2080 non-Ti barely exceeded 400W at the wall, which means ~360w at the wall. That is perfectly safe for long-term use - PSUs are rated for output power after all, so a 500W PSU can output 500W continuously for long periods. (I wouldn't trust a 500W consumer PSU to run at 500W draw 24/7 in a server, but that's not what we're talking about here.) Sure, it's not for overclocking the highest end components, but if that is your goal, you don't buy a pre-built. And it won't degrade enough to be a problem within the usable lifetime of the system (and if you're upgrading to a new and more power hungry GPU in four years or so, get a new PSU too - it's not exactly difficult to find).

A 280mm rad is more on the edge, but ultimately it's fine too as long as you have sufficiently powerful fans and don't mind running them fast.

I know, I was referring to the noise this is likely to make :)

I was uncertain but I think this thing is sold by itself. Here is the device compatability list for the version that includes GPU cooling:

Intel
•ROG MAXIMUS XI GENE
•GIGABYTE B360M AORUS GAMING 3
•GIGABYTE B360M AORUS PRO
•MSI MAG Z390M MORTAR

AMD
•GIGABYTE B450M GAMING
•GIGABYTE B450 AORUS M

GPU
1. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
2. Asus DUAL-RTX2080TI-O11G
3. Asus DUAL-RTX2080TI-A11G
4. GALAX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti OC
5. GALAX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti OC White
6. GALAX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Blower
7. Asus DUAL-RTX2080S-O8G-EVO

It's 240mm -- this thing will be loud.
