EK Water Blocks Releases 2nd Generation QuantumX Delta TEC

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, releases the 2nd generation of its EK-QuantumX Delta TEC extreme cooling water block. With more than 15 years of experience as a leader in premium-quality cooling solutions, EK, in collaboration with Intel, has developed a next-generation solution for enthusiasts seeking consistent system performance and ultimate overclocking on unlocked 11th and 10th Gen Intel Core desktop processors.

The EK-QuantumX Delta TEC EVO brings further improvements to the design, most notably an even more powerful TEC plate allowing over 50 W of additional cooling power. The TEC plate is now soldered to the bottom of the water block that goes over the CPU, improving contact and transfer of cooling to the block and eventually the CPU. It is exclusively powered by the Intel Cryo Cooling Technology, a unique combination of hardware, software, and firmware designed to help unleash elite performance for gamers and overclockers.
This unique cooler is made for maximum performance and frequencies during heavy load on a single core or lighter loads across more cores. It is not made for software that does heavy synthetic load across all cores, like the Prime95 series stress tests.

The EK-QuantumX Delta TEC EVO is built using a purpose-designed large-surface flow-through cooling engine together with the Intel Cryo Cooling Technology, bridging aesthetic uniformity and near-silent operation with technological advancements in thermal solutions. The cooler is an exceptional application of cooling the CPU with sub-ambient temperatures by utilizing a Thermoelectric Cooler (TEC) plate while continuously monitoring and adjusting temperatures dynamically, achieving an ideal operating environment for sustained gaming performance.

Liquid coolers are unable to reach temperatures below ambient (room) temperature, but the EK-QuantumX Delta TEC EVO is cutting-edge technology, as it actively cools the CPU to sub-ambient temperatures while extracting and dissipating the heat generated from the TEC plate through the traditional liquid cooling loop.

The EK-QuantumX Delta TEC EVO utilizes an innovative two-pronged approach to mitigate thermal condensation, a byproduct that has plagued previous attempts of sub-ambient cooling. The cooler features a compact integrated insulation shroud that isolates all exposed cold surfaces from the environmental conditions inside the PC, while the Intel Cryo Cooling Technology continuously monitors and adapts to those conditions to minimize condensation risk generated by the cooling process.

The controller unit can be mounted on the water block, or offset somewhere else, where it's not visible.

Availability and Pricing
The EK-QuantumX Delta TEC EVO is available worldwide through a network of partners and resellers, as well as directly through the EK Online Store. In the table below, you can see the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP), VAT included.

MSRP: 379.95€.

EK you pansies. Make it compatible with AMD too and self-contained management/software. With how liquid-cooling is starting to go with more radiators for looks more than what's really needed, this would be a half-meme way of eke-ing out a bit more OC (at the expense of a lot more heat) while putting all the excess rads to work.

On second thought though; this could lead to a meme-worthy dual-PC build; a tiny Intel secondary rig meant to mostly drive the TEC on an AMD primary rig. Basically taking Der8aur's proof-of-concept but putting it into those large cases that can handle two mobos at once.

Eh to me this fits the image of EK quite perfectly....and fyi I dont respect EK at all.

LOL like they make their own software... This is all Intel IP, all EK makes is a simple CNC machined metal slab so called 'water block'.
At least Cooler Master unit looks like properly engineered product unlike this shed made looking product.
