EK Officially Introduces Its Professional Line of Products
EK®, the leader in custom loop liquid cooling, is proud to announce the official launch of a product line meant for professional use. Characteristic properties of these products are robust, industrial material choices and no RGB whatsoever. The EK Professional Line is all about the use of high-quality materials, longevity, and enhancing the power of your PC or computing unit. These new products are also suited for the most demanding customers like servers, data centers, deep learning workstations, etc. By applying liquid cooling to workstations where multiple GPU setups are common, users can amplify the power of their PCs and reduce noise pollution in their work environment. By implementing intelligent solutions, EK Professional Line can increase production output in many ways. These new products are named EK-Pro Manifold and EK-Pro Quick Disconnect Kits.

EK-Pro Quick Disconnect Kits
The EK-Pro GPU Quick Disconnect Kit is the most efficient way to transform your liquid-cooled GPU into a quick-disconnect ready water block assembly. The kit consists of everything you need to transform your existing GPU water block into a quick-disconnect ready product. The following is included: 1 meter of Black ZMT 6,5/9,5mm tubing, two 6mm OD barb fittings, four tube clamps, 45° Angled GPU Terminal, and two sets of Quick Disconnect fittings.
The EK-Pro CPU Quick Disconnect Kit is the most efficient way to transform your CPU water block into a quick-disconnect ready assembly. The kit consists of everything you need to transform your existing CPU water block into a quick-disconnect ready product. Included are: 1 meter of Black ZMT 9,5/15,9mm tubing, two 10mm OD barb fittings, four-tube clamps, and two sets of Quick Disconnect fittings.
For the best results, EK recommends the use of (separately sold) EK Pro-Manifolds in combination with the Quick Disconnect Kit since it enables a quick and easy assembly and disassembly of the liquid cooling loop without the need to drain the entire setup. This minimizes the downtime of workstations and other professionally used computer setups.
The EK-Pro Manifold is a purpose-made coolant delivery system for multiple water blocks in workstation setups. It offers perfect coolant distribution by using multiple industry-standard G1/4″ In and Out ports. There are two versions of the product available. The first version is EK-Pro Manifold 2CPU 2GPU that can support two CPU and two GPU water blocks in parallel or semi-parallel setup. The other, one is EK-Pro Manifold 2CPU 4GPU that can support two CPU and four GPU water blocks in parallel or semi-parallel setup.

It features a full acetal body, stainless steel end caps, and nickel-plated brass plugs. It is an out-of-the-box solution that is pre-assembled to be used in a semi-parallel setup. The EK-Pro Manifold is delivered with a universal mounting system (as seen on the product page) that can be used in various scenarios. The steel mounting plate is equipped with 120 and 140mm fan mounting patterns that can be found in all computer cases.
