EK Introduces Quantum Convection D5 Covers and DDC Heatsinks
EK®, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is launching its new Quantum Line products for the DDC and D5 pumps, the EK-Quantum Convection D5 and EK-Quantum Convection DDC. These D5 covers and DDC heatsinks are available in three distinct finishes – Silver, Black, and Nickel – to provide users with different aesthetic options.
EK-Quantum Convection D5
The market-leading D5 pumps get a CNC-machined aluminum cover, the EK-Quantum Convection D5, which is compatible with EK-Quantum Reflection distribution plates that feature a D5 pump and the D5-based EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT pump-reservoir combos.
It is available in three finishes – anodized Silver, Black, and in a Nickel-plated variant. It can be fitted over genuine D5 pumps.
It is compatible with the following products:
|EK-Quantum Reflection Distribution Plates|
|EK-Quantum Reflection PC-O11D Mini D5 PWM D-RGB|
|EK-Quantum Reflection Fractal ATX D5 PWM D-RGB|
|EK-Quantum Reflection Evolv X D5 PWM D-RGB|
|EK-Quantum Reflection 1000D D5 PWM|
|EK-Quantum Reflection PC-O11D XL D5 PWM|
|EK-Quantum Reflection PC-O11D D5 PWM|
|EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT D5 pump-reservoir Combo Units|
|EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT 120 D5 PWM|
|EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT 240 D5 PWM|
|EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT 360 D5 PWM|
It is designed to improve the aesthetics of pumps. A rectangular design with a convenient hole for routing the cable and hiding it as much as possible allows for a cleaner look of the pump.
EK-Quantum Convection DDC
The SFF champion, the DDC pump, gets a heatsink that also acts as an aesthetic cover. The EK-Quantum Convection DDC is a CNC machined aluminum heatsink that vastly improves the cooling performance of the motor and electronics, thus prolonging the lifespan of the water pump.
Optimal heat transfer is ensured by the use of an enclosed thermal pad. Due to its metallic construction and finned design, this heatsink amplifies the effect of airflow. Placing the water pump in front of any fan or radiator will thus dramatically improve the cooling performance.
As an added benefit, it also upgrades the looks of the pump with a stylish metal finish – Silver, Black, or Nickel.
It is compatible with EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT DDC series combo units, EK-Quantum Kinetic TBE DDC series tubular pump-reservoir combo units, and future EK-Quantum Inertia DDC series products.
