EK Releases Limited Edition Memorial Day Star-Spangled Velocity Water Block

EK, the premium water cooling gear manufacturer, has decided to do something special for its American fans this Memorial Day Weekend. Apart from being the unofficial beginning of summer, the last Monday of May has a lot of meaning for many Americans. Memorial Day is the reason why EK has created a special red, white, and blue limited edition Velocity CPU water block with a genuinely noble cause.

The brand new limited version of the water block carries the name EK-Quantum Velocity Honor. It is "decorated" with the US flag and will be sold at the price of $249.99. For each water block sold, EK will donate $100 to a charitable organization. "Being a globally successful company also means that we have the ability and responsibility to make a difference and give something back to the community. We have decided to jump on a project that will make our most loyal fans happy, and at the same time, help those who are in need," said Edvard König, founder of EK.

EK Expands on Quantum Kinetic TBE Series Products With DDC-Powered Variants

EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer from Slovenia, EU, is adding more options to its Quantum Line Kinetic TBE products with DDC pump-based combo units. These new DDC-powered combos offer very high head pressure and good flow rates in a small footprint. This makes them very convenient for smaller cases that house powerful hardware with multiple water blocks. 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-Loop 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 hotspots.

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.

Fractal Design Cases Get a D5 Powered EK Distribution Plate

EKWB Presents the EK-Quantum Magnitude CPU Water Block

(Editor's note: Our review can be found here)

EK, the water cooling gear manufacturer based in Slovenia, Europe, is proud to present its newest addition to the Quantum Line of products - the EK-Quantum Magnitude. It's a new, ultimate CPU water block that brings the highest performance to all platforms by using specific flow distribution, cold plate geometry, and mounting pressure tailored to each IHS.

EK-Quantum Magnitude is bearing the prestigious iF Design award for the bold and different approach to the CPU water block mounting mechanism. Differentiated from any mounting structure of a water block that is usually a black and mundane plate, the design accentuates an integrated X- or H-shaped three-dimensional frame with premium finishes that firmly cradles the main body in place, while the screws are morphed into sophisticated design details.

EK Introduces EK-Vardar X3M, The New Addressable D-RGB Fans

EK Water Blocks, the premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer is releasing a new version of its renowned 120 mm EK-Vardar fan.

The EK-Quantum In Win 909EK is a limited edition case and it is limited to only 200 pieces.

EK Launches its All-in-One Liquid CPU Cooler Line

Take your first step into the world of liquid-cooling with the new EK-AIO (All-In-One) CPU cooler. Simple to use and easy to install, the EK AIO is a plug-and-play water-cooling solution requiring no assembly or maintenance. Top of its class cooling performance accompanied by fully customizable D-RGB lighting - the EK-AIO is an ideal solution for anyone who requires something more than an ordinary air cooler. The EK-AIO comes in three size variants, each offering different levels of cooling performance.

EK-AIO 120 D-RGB: The single 120 mm radiator version of the EK-AIO is ready to accommodate any mainstream processor on the market while running on its basic settings. It is best used in small form factor PCs where space is limited, where tall air cooling solutions are not an option, but high-performance cooling is still needed. EK-AIO 240 D-RGB: The dual fan EK-AIO with a 240 mm radiator is the perfect all-rounder for standard case sizes. The radiator surface is big enough to combat any mainstream CPU on the market and even has enough headroom for overclocking. An AIO with cooling capacities like this can either provide a super silent PC setup or can help harness the extra performance of an overclocked processor.

EK Releases Pumpless Versions of EK Quantum Reservoirs

EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer based in Europe, is releasing pumpless versions of the Quantum Line pump-reservoir combo units - the EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT D5/DDC Body D-RGB and the EK-Quantum Kinetic TBE 200 D5 Body D-RGB. This means the customer can attach his already owned DDC or D5 pump allowing for a more affordable upgrade process from the previous generation of reservoirs. EK-Quantum products come with sophisticated 5 V D-RGB addressable LEDs which can be controlled through your motherboard RGB control software.

These models are pumpless versions of the EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT pump-reservoir combos. They come in three sizes, 120 mm, 240 mm, and 360 mm. They are mounted from the backside using the 120 mm fan mounting holes and due to having no pump at the back. Each is compatible with both the D5 and DDC pumps and they come with separate mounting kits for your pump of choice, so if you decide to switch the pump model in the future, you can do that without replacing this combo unit.

Walkthrough of the EK Waterblocks Suite at CES 2020

CES might be over, but our coverage from the event continues. TechPowerUp prides itself on visiting a lot of brands, big and small, and bringing to you our first-hand account of everything new. EK Waterblocks, or simply EKWB henceforth, had a large room in the Mandalay Bay with a big open window spanning the room, which made for challenging photography, but a well-laid out open plan made it easy for us to go over the various product segments they had to display. This post will go briefly over them, but keep in mind that nearly all products showcased do not have set retail availability info just yet.

The very first thing that caught our eyes was their new line of AIO cooling solutions, now simply called EK-AIO. These are the successors to the EK-MLC Phoenix, and the EK-Predator from before, both of which did not really change the status quo of the pre-filled AIO CPU cooling market. EK hopes that the new series, of which again they are working to finalizing the design before committing to a release window and pricing information, will change this. As with most of their new products, the EK-AIO coolers integrate RGB support with 9 dRGB LEDs in the pump/block and more on the EK-Vardar RGB fans that are used on the radiator itself. The EK-AIO series is planned to come in 120/240/360 mm radiator size options, with 1/2/3 fans respectively. Read past the break for more from the Slovenian watercooling brand.

EK Launches D-RGB Water Blocks and Upgrade Kits for AMD RX 5700 Series

EK Releases EK-Leak Tester - a Superior Leak Testing Solution

EK the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer is releasing the EK-Leak Tester. A fast and safe way of testing for possible leaks in your liquid cooling loop. While traditional leak testing works, it requires hours before very small leaks are detected and then things can get messy. The EK-Leak Tester does the job way better!

The main body is a solid piece of CNC machined aluminium. One end is fitted with a revolvable male G1/4" connection port so it can be directly screwed onto any standard port in your liquid cooling loop. The gauge is custom made for liquid cooling loop testing purposes, which clearly marks the safe pressure for testing. The other side of the tester is hooked up with a valve that will make sure no air is escaping through the tester unit. The small pump for pressurizing the loop is also included. However, for a maximum safety effect, EK suggests reaching a pressure you want for testing and leaving the tester on for at least 15 minutes. If no pressure drop occurs and the gauge remains on the same spot, you're good to go.
