What is PWM and how does it work?

Many years after the introduction of PWM in 2003, there are users that are still not familiar with its advantages. In this article, we explain what is PWM and how to use it properly to get the best performance out of your fans and pumps!

Fans for Liquid Cooling: What you need to know

What to look for when deciding for the right liquid cooling fans? There are many features, labels and different characteristics and you can easily get confused. We show you what is important and what you have to know when buying a liquid cooling fan.

What is QDC?

This article will show you, why AIO or All-In-One is a very attractive solution if you need efficient, silent and great performing cooling solution, but you don’t have much time to deal with installation and maintenance of the loop.

What are MOSFETs and why you should keep them cool?

In this article, we explain what are MOSFETs, why are they important and why should you keep them cool.

Thermal Compound Guide

Why do we need a thermal grease? How to read thermal compound labels and what do they mean? What is a good spread and good conductivity?

How to correctly apply the thermal interface material (TIM)?

Every now and then we get a question how to apply the thermal pads or thermal grease correctly, therefore I decided to write a short blog post about it.

Should I get pump reservoir combo or should I buy them separately?

The reservoir pump combo is what we can simply describe as “fail proof” concept. The coolant will always be at the right spot for the pump to operate without any problems.

How big should my radiator be?

Radiators come in various sizes and thickness, but how do you know which size is appropriate for your custom loop?

Does Loop Order Matter?

Is there a specific order that the components in a custom liquid cooling loop need to be in? Today we plan to give a short and sweet explanation of the recommended loop order.

Which liquid cooling solution is right for me?

There are 3 ways to liquid ­cool your components: an “all-­in-­one” system, such as EK-XLC Predator series; then there are pre­packaged kits, and finally, there is the “full custom loop” approach.
