EK Launches a Quantum Revolution of Tubular D5 Combos

EK, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer based in Europe, is releasing a new Quantum Line of genuine D5 pump based combo units. These units are a revolution and an upgrade of the market-proven design used in the old EK-XRES Revo generation of pump-res combos since the new units have twice as much ports. EK-Quantum products come with sophisticated 5 V addressable D-RGB LEDs which can be controlled through your motherboard RGB control software or the upcoming EK-Connect controller unit.

The most popular cylindrical pump-res combo on the market is redesigned, upgraded and is better in every way. The top is now featuring three G1/4" ports, one of which has a pre-installed nickel-plated brass internal tube which helps to 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 use used for filling the system or adding additional upcoming accessories (thermal probes, LEDs, etc.)

Touring the EKWB Suite at CES 2019

TechPowerUp met over 50 brands at CES this year, more than anyone else we know of, and thus our coverage of the trade show continues on. EK Water Blocks (EKWB) had a grand showing at Computex last year, with a room full of updates and new products. Some of these showed up in a different form at CES, and others presumably are still being developed. As it turned out, EK had another room full of products this time too, including some products that we were not expecting necessarily.

Beginning our tour was a demo of the Quantum Distro PC 305 system, an EK-assembled system sold at Microcenter stores in the USA. As the name suggests, this uses an InWin 305 case and the current setup has an Intel Core i9-9900K on an ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero combined with an NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti. These systems are not budget friendly, but if you wanted to get an EK-distribution plate then this is currently the only way to do so. Next to these was the EK-Connect, which appears to be the final version of the long awaited fan controller project they had teased years back. The EK-Connect, as 2019 demands it, is a combination LED and fan controller, and will be supported by a software driver when ready. At the trade show, the setup just showed multiple different LED strips and fans connected, and it appears to be powered by an in-set SATA connector for power. Read past the break for more!

Alphacool Shows Off All New Eisball Pump/Reservoir Combo

Alphacool showed off an entirely new pump/reservoir combo at CES 2019, which they dubbed the Eisball. Just a quick look at this thing will tell you it is like nothing else you have seen before. Paired with their VP755 V3 pump which was recently updated, means not only is it entirely new from the ground up, it also has a truly unique appearance. Of course no product is complete without RGB LEDs, and the Eisball is no exception with the metal ring located on the outside hiding them from prying eyes while delivering bright illumination that will have no problems being visible in any case with a window.

All cabling for the LEDs and pump are thankfully sleeved in black which which is nice since no one likes mustard and ketchup cabling. There are four ports located on the unit two of which are on the front bottom and are clearly marked inlet and outlet, while another port is located on the opposite side. The last port is in the obvious location which is up top. In general, the Eisball is a unique pump/reservoir combo that will likely garner more than a few looks at CES this year. That said, all I can see when I look at it is R2D2 maybe I am just crazy? Let me know in the comments.

CORSAIR Hydro X Custom Watercooling Lineup (Mostly) Revealed

Why is it that each time something leaks from CORSAIR, it is from one of their resellers? This time, it was France-based LDLC who decided to show off an entire system filled with parts from CORSAIR's upcoming Hydro X business unit at Paris Games Week recently. This is our first look at CORSAIR's entry to custom watercooling, which was teased a couple of months ago, and looks like the inevitable launch will be sooner rather than later.

This entire venture started off with drama of its own, involving key personnel jumping ship from EK Waterblocks to CORSAIR about a year ago, and many were curious as to what this meant in terms of new options to the market. We will go through the photos one by one to identify and comment on all the parts, so be sure to click the full story as we dig deeper into the individual parts.

Lian Li Partners with Bitspower on Custom Reservoir/Pump for PC-O11 Dynamic Case

The Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic is proving to be a success for the company, with praise from reviews and customers alike. The platform has since brought out a few variations as well, but for those wanting to build in the case this holiday season and make use of the watercooling support it allows, the Sedna O11D might be of interest to you. Borne out of a collaboration between Lian Li and Bitspower, this is a custom reservoir and pump combination unit that fits in like a manifold and is slim to allow for excellent compatibility for also CPU and GPU blocks in the case without compromising on space for the rest of the custom loop.

The Sedna O11D is effectively a retail product designed like a one-off mod from talented PC modders around the world, and will allow users to have something different than the norm. It comes with what appears to be a Laing DDC pump integrated at the bottom, and also has a built-in pressure relief valve at the top to aid in air bleeding as well as a drain valve at the bottom. There is no word on pricing yet, although the product is up for purchase from Bitspower directly in which case you need to contact their sales channel via Skype. Note that this is not necessarily the first of its kind as a retail product, with other, arguably smaller, Asian brands offering similar custom reservoirs before. This is the first time a global brand has directly worked with the case maker to make such a specific product, to the best of my knowledge, and hopefully it leads to more such joint efforts.

Raijintek Intros Antila D5 Pump+Reservoir

Raijintek introduced the Antila D5, a pump+reservoir combination device with a cylindrical reservoir measuring ⌀64 mm x 205 mm (H), and an integrated pump that can push 900 l/h, with a maximum pressure of 50 psi, and a 4 m (13-feet) head-lift. The reservoir is made of POM + PMMA clear acrylic. Taking in 4-pin PWM input, the pump's impeller spins between 1,800~4,500 RPM, with a noise output of up to 30 dBA. The complete assembly measures 87.4 mm x 280.6 mm x 91.2 mm, dry-weighing 790 g. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Swiftech Announces New Maelstrom D5 Reservoir Lineup

Swiftech today announced a new addition to their Reservoir Lineup. The Maelstrom D5 will be available in four different models with differing sizes (and thus capacity). The four new models carry the X50, X100, X200, and X300 product names, where the numerals indicate the height of the reservoir in mm. As the name implies, a D5 pump is being used on the base of the reservoir, and features speed control via pulse width modulation.

These reservoirs feature Swiftech's IRIS technology, which allows for some RGB goodness to ensue via the built-in ALED lighting system. On the longevity side of the argument, Swiftech is quoting a MTBF of 50,000 hours. If you were expecting price to scale nicely with the reservoir size, you're better of rethinking your stance: the X50 reservoir comes in at $145.95, while the X300 will set you back only $29 more at $174.95. However, not all use cases will be able to use the 300 mm behemoth, so Swiftech is covering all its basis - though charging a mean sum for it.
