EK Reshapes Your Perception of Reservoirs With Flat D-RGB Models
EK®, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer based in Europe, is releasing a new Quantum Line of reservoirs and pump-reservoir combo units. They come in a completely new shape with straight edges and completely flat. This makes them even easier to fit in tight spaces, as they also utilize standard 120mm fan mounting holes and take up as much space as a radiator in terms of width and length. The pump-reservoir combos come in both D5 and DDC variants, but either is compatible with both pumps. So, if you decide to switch from a D5 to DDC to save space, or from DDC to D5, you’ll be able to use the same pump-reservoir combo. These EK-Quantum products come with sophisticated 5V D-RGB addressable LEDs which can be controlled through your motherboard RGB control software.
EK-Quantum Volume FLT D-RGB reservoirs
These are the stand-alone reservoirs for the EK Quantum Line. They come in three sizes, 120mm, 240mm, and 360mm. They are mounted from the backside using the 120mm fan mounting holes and due to having no pump at the back, they are only 53.5mm thick with the included mounting.
EK-Quantum Volume reservoirs come with four G1/4″ ports. One in, one out, one for fill port and the last one for drain port use.
EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT D-RGB pump-res combos
These are the pump-res combo units very similar to the EK-Quantum Volume. They also come in three sizes, 120mm, 240mm, and 360mm. They include the same mounting style from the backside using the 120mm fan mounting holes, but due to having a pump at the back, they are 58mm or 86mm thick depending on the pump choice. 58mm thick being for DDC variant, and 86mm thick for the D5 variant.
Ek-Quantum Kinetic FLT pump-reservoir combos come with four G1/4″ ports on the front, and two on the bottom side as an optional IN and OUT.
A Digital (addressable) 3-pin 5V D-RGB LED strip is installed in the reservoirs and combos that connects to the motherboard’s 3-pin LED header or it can be connected to any other supported 5V 3-pin addressable LED controller. This product is compatible with all major motherboard manufacturer’s D-RGB control software. The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the RGB header.
