EK-AF Classic Angled 90° – nickel-plated brass angled adapters. One of the most useful tools to have, as it benefits every build. It makes a troublesome tube route easy and more aesthetically pleasing.
EK-Loop Soft Tube Cutter – a simple tool used to make a straight tube cut. Safe and easy to use.
EK-D-RGB 6-Way Splitter Cable – This splitter cable enables you to connect up to 6 D-RGB products to a single source header. Be it on the motherboard or on the D-RGB controller of your choice.
Foldable Filling Bottle – very convenient for mixing the EK-CryoFuel concentrates with distilled water. The telescopic tube of the filling bottle can reach even the most remote and crammed fill ports.
EK-Loop Multi Allen Key – a multi-purpose tool that replaces the standard 6mm, 8mm, and 9mm Allen key, while it can also be used to operate acetal plugs (with the line style groove). The key does not only replace all of the crucial Allen key formats used for building a liquid-cooled PC but also helps protect your liquid cooling gear.
Tube Cutter – a useful tool to make straight tube cuts quick, easy, and safe.
Reservoir Tube Clamp & Versatile Combo Bracket – these pieces feature several mounting options for your pump-reservoir combo offer you way more options to fit it perfectly inside your case.
