This CPU water block is EK-Matrix7 compliant and is mounted via the patent-pending EK Exact Mount system. Embedded in the Velocity² is a low-hydraulic-flow-restriction and high-performance cooling engine, which is achieved by a combination of mounting pressure and cold plate geometry tailored for the IHS and die layout of the AMD AM5 socket. The product also features mesmerizing D-RGB LED lighting, compatible with major motherboard RGB sync technologies. Notably, Velocity² products have earned prestigious awards, including iF Design, European Hardware Awards, CES 22, and others.
1 x EK-Quantum Surface P360M – Black radiator.
With a thickness of 44mm, they are the ultimate all-rounder radiators for low noise and high performance. They are equipped with four G1/4“ threaded connection ports and an additional fifth G1/4“ port on the end-tank, which can be used for loop draining and bleeding the air.
The radiator features sixteen 2mm-wide copper tubes spanning its entire length, ensuring optimal coolant flow. High-grade non-louvered copper fins, boasting 18 FPI density, strike the perfect balance between thermal transfer and air resistance, guaranteeing optimal performance even at low fan speeds. To maximize cooling, a Push/Pull setup can be utilized. Notably, the EK-Quantum Surface P Radiator won the “Highly Recommended” Award by TechPowerUp.
These 120mm addressable RGB high-static pressure computer cooling fans specifically designed for radiator cooling, provide a low noise profile while delivering optimal cooling performance. The fluid dynamic bearings ensure a long lifespan and silent operation during low-power scenarios, while precise PWM allows for on-demand performance. Full Pressure Technology (FPT) utilizes a full–frame design that completely seals the radiator, preventing air escape. Additionally, OmniLink enables easy daisy-chaining of fan power, D-RGB, and pump power through a single cable.
Pump and Reservoir Combo
This high-performance Quantum pump-reservoir combo unit features rich D-RGB lighting, with the core of this combo unit being the market-proven Xylem D5 PWM water pump. It features a fully rounded design for improved usability, allowing installation at any angle within 360° of rotation. A special rubber shock absorber is used to de-couple the main pump body from the mounting clip for silent operation, free of vibration-induced noise. Additionally, horizontal and vertical positioning is supported for easier tube routing possibilities with a multitude of ports to choose from.
The kits pack six minimalistic 10/16mm (ID/OD) soft-tube compression fittings designed to be used with various flexible soft tubing. The locking ring compresses the tubing wall beneath it, ensuring the flexible tube remains securely attached to the fitting’s barb. The fittings feature grooves on the outside for easier hand tightening. Notably, EK-Quantum Torque series products have received the prestigious iF Design Award, with a robust industrial aesthetic that sets the Torque family apart, highlighting the precise manufacturing processes used in their creation.
The revolvable and angled (90°) adapter fittings with G1/4″ threads feature a cylinder shape that guarantees sturdiness and zero movements in the revolvable joint, making them ideal for effortlessly navigating challenging tube routes. These Quantum Line adapters are crafted from CNC-machined brass with a high-quality Satin Black finish, and the seals are made with durable rubber O-rings. They are also part of the EK-Quantum Torque series of products that have received the prestigious iF Design Award.
The kits feature 3 meters of high-clarity transparent soft tubing, designed for demanding customers seeking practicality and ease of use. It offers high transmissibility to UV-Type A and UV-Type B for compatibility with UV reactive coolants while preventing deterioration and discoloration with low transmissibility to UV-Type C. Additionally, the tubing features high resistance to leaching and uses a non-Phthalate plasticizer.
EK-CryoFuel Clear is a pure, non-toxic coolant based on the patent-pending chemical formula that prevents the creation of any sediments in the liquid cooling loop. The 100 mL concentrate is to be mixed with distilled water in a ratio of 1:9 to form 1 L of ready-to-use coolant. To make mixing the concentrate with distilled easier, EK recommends using a filling bottle, which is included in the package.
