MSI Unveils MPG Z490 Gaming Pro Carbon EK X Motherboard

MSI unveiled a premium variant of its MPG Z490 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard with a factory-fitted monoblock, the MPG Z490 Gaming Pro Carbon EK X. As its name suggests, the monoblock is supplied by EK Water Blocks. It uses nickel-plated copper as its primary material, and has a clear acrylic top with some faux carbon-fiber embellishments. The block is studded with addressable RGB LEDs that plug into one of the motherboard's 3-pin ARGB headers.

The monoblock uses a micro fin lattice over the CPU socket, and has its main coolant channel pass through not just the CPU, but also the CPU VRM area. There's some prominent "Carbon EK X" branding over another strip of faux carbon-fiber at the PCH heatsink. The rest of the board's design and feature-set are identical to the original MPG Z490 Gaming Pro Carbon. The company didn't reveal pricing, although an EK Quantum series monoblock like the one featured here should add at least $140 to the original board's price.

EK Waterblocks Unveils VTX-Powered Kinetic Reservoir+Pump Combo Units

EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer from Slovenia, EU, is releasing new Quantum Line VTX pump-based combo units. These new VTX pumps feature a DDC-compatible mount, very high head pressure, and good flow rates in a small footprint that is ideal for smaller cases. EK-Quantum products come with sophisticated addressable D-RGB 5 V LEDs that can be controlled through your motherboard's RGB control software or EK-Connect controller unit. Besides the upgraded loop routing capabilities of the new small form factor combo units, EK is putting a lot of emphasis on the D-RGB implementation with no visible LED hot-spots.

The most popular small form factor cylindrical pump-res combo on the market is redesigned, upgraded, and better in every way. The top is now featuring three G1/4" ports. One of the ports can be used with the included nickel-plated brass internal tube, which helps prevent the splashing of the coolant inside the reservoir if the top is to be used as an inlet. This reduces the chances of air being sucked in by the pump and foaming of the coolant as well. Any of these ports can also be used for filling the system or adding additional upcoming accessories (thermal probes, LEDs, etc.) The internal tube can not be used in conjunction with the anti-Vortex insert on 120 models due to height restrictions.

EK Announces EK-Quantum Torque 6-Pack STC, HTC Fittings

EK Water Blocks, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is launching six-piece multipacks of the entire Torque series fittings due to their increasing popularity and demand as these are the only fittings on the market that feature replaceable aesthetic color rings. These six-pack fittings come in three different finishes - Nickel, Satin Black, and Black Nickel.

EK-Quantum Torque 6-Pack STC (Soft Tube Compression) fitting multipack is a soft-tube compression fitting pack designed for use with flexible soft tubing such as PVC, EPDM, Norprene, silicone, or any other type of compatible flexible tube.

These fittings are an ideal choice for anyone who wants to easily refresh the look of their liquid-cooled PC and are a perfect match for the EK-Quantum series products. These are secure variants of the tubing fitting connector as the locking ring prevents a flexible tube from being pulled out of the fitting by compressing the tubing wall underneath the ring. Such fitting does not require any hose clamp or a similar substitute.

EK Water Blocks Announces EK-Furious Meltemi 120 High-speed Fan

EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer is launching its most extreme fan to date, the EK-Furious Meltemi 120. This 38 mm thick extreme high-static pressure radiator cooling fan is designed purely for highest-performance computer liquid cooling systems. Developed in-house on the basis of the renowned EK-Vardar fans, they have a wide PWM range of operation and the highest speed of up to 3500 rpm. Due to a 38 mm thick frame, there is space for an upgraded motor and far superior performance compared to any standard 25 mm thick fan at the same RPM range.

The Meltemi family of cooling fans carries the name of a type of strong, dry northern winds of the Aegean Sea. The name Meltemi is derived from Italian mal tempo meaning "bad weather", while we can say that the EK's Meltemi fans are "bad news" for high temperatures. These fans provide the best possible performance in pull mode. Such a regime evens out the airflow through the entire surface of the radiator since the motor hub dead zone effect is lessened. The fan is equipped with a red sleeved cable just to warn off those curious little fingers from getting hurt. Seriously, 3500 rpm is no joke, and you should be extra careful around these fans if they are in operation.

EKWB Presents the EK-Quantum Magnitude CPU Water Block
