EK releases single-slot 5.25″ drive bay DDC combo unit
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the latest 5.25″ drive bay pump / reservoir combo unit.
EK-SBAY DDC 3.2 is high-performance hydraulically improved pump top (volute) for DDC series water pump with integrated reservoir in a single-slot 5.25″ drive bay form factor. This type of design makes the use of now almost abandoned 5.25″ drive bay slot in order to provide more room for other components when facing limited space constraints. Made from a high quality POM Acetal this sturdy, monoblock design guarantees maximum reliability and rigidity!
This unit is as straight forward as it can be – it provides two inlet- and one outlet port as well as a two filling ports on the top of unit. Integrated anti-cyclone made from acrylic glass effectively prevents excessive vortex formation when using in low hydraulic restriction loops. For easier filling a practical pouring cup is included.
EK-SBAY DDC is designed around anti-vibration rubber mounting system. This floating design effectively silents this pump / reservoir setup by de-coupling it from the rest of the computer chassis.

The unit itself is powered by a PWM version of the pump for best versatility. PWM control allows for automatic pump speed regulation depending on your CPU temperature. Full performance on demand or whisper quiet operation in idle mode! A similiar product is also available for dual pump setup.
This unit can be upgraded with EK-DDC Heatsink Housing, available in both Black as well as Nickel plated version. With the installed EK-DDC Heatsink Housing the unit occupies two 5.25″ slots as it portrudes over the single 5.25″ form factor height limitation.
