EK Launches Precision Torque Screwdriver

EK, is launching the EK-Loop Torque Screwdriver 0.6 Nm to provide its customers with the best and safest tools for their liquid cooling adventure. Assemble and maintain your water-cooling equipment without the risk of over-torquing and damaging your gear. EK is dedicated to being a one-stop shop for its users, making their loop-building experience easier and more accessible.

EK-Loop Torque Screwdriver - 0.6 Nm is a precision screwdriver that will allow you to precisely fasten screws. This screwdriver includes the 5 most common bits used for PCs and liquid cooling.

Well, i guess if your the ham fisted, neanderthal type this might come in handy. No pun intended. Otherwise common sense should and has prevailed for the majority of us.

Lately they are becoming joke of themselves.

Their manuals do not state the needed amount of force. The manuals are often lacking information.
Tighten the screws evenly. Do not use excessive force when tightening the screws.
Basically it is all bullshit again. I still would not use few penny screwdriver like that, after few times it most probably becomes loose, especially in hands of those who tend to overtighten screws.

Also I can bet... 6cNm are way too weak for some screws. 6-14 cNm is the needed force. I am tightening screws in mobile phones 6-12cNm according to the manufacturer manual. And those are ~M1.2

Torq screwdrivers have been available for years and the best ones come with magnetic tips. This is a poor attempt from EK.

Is this how EK plans to get away with using subpar screws that strip easily?

I don't have any personal experience.
Recently there were quite a few posts on Reddit complaining about stripped screws (sometimes even stripped from the factory). The timing of EK suddenly releasing a torque screw driver seems awfully convenient.

Follow the guidelines/rules.
Here are a couple of quotes from them:
Avoid political or religious comment unless it is specifically relevant to a topic and in those cases is only acceptable if done in an unbiased manner.
All posts and private messages have a "report post" button on the bottom of the post, click it when you feel something is inappropriate.
Thank You.

So no actual fact or firsthand experience, just hearsay?
