The EK Quantum Velocity DRGB Nickel Frosted Plexi Water Block is the new high-performance premium quality CPU water block for modern Intel consumer and HEDT processors. It features a unique frosted acrylic top which diffuses the 20 addressable LEDs and visually aligns with frosted/satin tubing. The water blocks lighting solution connects to a standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB header.
EK-Quantum Velocity series CPU water blocks embed the 5th generation of the award-winning EK CPU water block cooling engine, further tweaked for performance and optimal coolant flow. Low hydraulic flow restriction enables this product to be used in setups using weaker water pumps or lower pump speeds for added silent operation, while still achieving top performance! The new cooling engine is characterized by the top-integrated jet nozzle which is combined with a thicker jet plate allowing a more precise bow control. The simplified water block structure offers a more optimized coolant flow and easier maintenance.
Water block material and manufacturing
The purest copper available on the market is used for the EK-Quantum Velocity cold plate which is precisely machined to a dense micro-fin structure. The contact surface itself is machine polished for better contact with the CPU IHS. This version of the water block features a nickel-plated cold plate with a CNC machined frosted cast Acrylic top piece.
EK-Quantum Velocity features and D-RGB
The block is equipped with a reinforced hold-down bracket, and the enclosed mounting kit includes all the necessary mounting screws, mounting springs, an Intel backplate, rubber backplate gasket, and a small tube of Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut high-performance thermal paste. The EK-Quantum Velocity CPU water block features a universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation supporting Intel HEDT and consumer sockets out of the box. The mounting screws are streamlined and are even smaller than before for an added aesthetical perfection.
This product is compatible with all popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the RGB header.
