Product Highlights From EK EXPO Computex 2021
EK®, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, presented new products and solutions during EK EXPO Computex 2021 Main Event held on June 1. The virtual event featured achievements from multiple product lines that targeted a wide array of users, from gamers and content creators to AI developers and data scientists.
Below are the highlights of the event and a brief overview; however, additional information on the event and the products can be found on the official EK EXPO Computex 2021 page.
X7000-C and X7000-RM from EK Fluid Works
Following on the heels of their success from a complete lineup of fully liquid-cooled workstation PCs, EK Fluid Works introduced two new variations of their Compute series, the X7000-C and the X7000-RM. The goal was to bring the same power and performance as the original X7000 but to offer it in two more accommodating forms for users.
The X7000-C is the ultra-compact version of our legendary X7000 workstation, delivering users intense computing power in a size that is comparable to a compact home subwoofer. The X7000-C features server-grade components and accommodates up to 4 fully liquid cooled GPUs. The industrial-grade QDCs (Quick Disconnect Couplings) allow easy upgradeability and limit downtime when maintenance or repairs are needed.
The X7000-RM is our answer to the many requests we received for a fully liquid-cooled, rack-mountable server. With the same performance specs as the X7000, this 5U rack-mountable chassis features an entirely self-contained and completely removable liquid cooling loop, with industrial-grade dripless QDCs that can accommodate up to 7 GPUs. Easy upgradability and serviceability were both prioritized when designing this system.
Small Form Factor Gaming PC from EK Fluid Gaming
The latest gaming PC from EK Fluid Gaming is powered exclusively by the new EK AIO Plus to provide users a premium gaming experience. The PC also features a water-cooled AMD Ryzen CPU and the choice of an AMD Radeon or NVIDIA RTX GPU. Its impressive hardware is housed inside the Lian-Li PC-011D Mini to give it a clean and understated look. With only 70% of the original size, the compact design perfectly fits a broader range of spaces and budgets. It is the ideal gaming PC for users who are looking for a compact yet powerful build.
A New Line of Closed Loop Coolers from EK AIO
EK unveiled two series of circular-design, all-in-one liquid cooling solutions, the EK-Nucleus Lux and the EK-Nucleus Vision, with the promise of more in the future. The Nucleus line brings many new features, including a rotatable pump top, new fitting positions, and an LCD display. This last detail allows users to customize the look of their CPU cooler more than ever before by setting the display for internal data, personal branding, and even gifs.
The Lux series features AIOs made especially for customers searching to light up their PC with the help of RGB lighting, which is featured in the fans and the pump unit. The fan-like D-RGB lighting effect around the pump top is an excellent addition for all those who seek that perfect RGB AIO aesthetic.
The Vision series elaborates on the foundation of the line and enhances it. Therefore, it offers all the Nucleus line core features and adds the LCD readout and extra gadgets. The bright LCD screen can display 24-bit color and allows users to customize the look of their CPU cooler.
Quantum Able to Offer Users Complete Selection
The EK Quantum Line is finally a whole being able to offer radiators, fans, pumps, reservoirs, combo units, fittings, and water blocks that are all designed and developed around the idea of perfectly matching and complementing liquid cooling components that bring unparalleled aesthetic uniformity.
New Radiators & Fans
More than 50 new radiators, including multiport and crossflow models, will provide users with more versatility, in addition to all being available in white. Two new fans will cater to the needs of those who seek high-performance radiator cooling and bright visual performance.
Vector2 & Velocity2 Water Blocks
Velocity² is a complete redesign of the bestselling EK Quantum CPU water block, featuring a cooling engine that will be specifically tuned for each generation of processors. There is also an innovative, patent-pending mounting mechanism, the ExactMount, to make the water block installation quick and precise. Vector² GPU water blocks will follow the same trend by placing a concealed LED strip on the long side of the GPU block accompanied by a new GPU backplate design.
Meet the EK-Matrix7, a product raster bound to set a new standard in PC liquid cooling. Since PC liquid cooling became widely available, there was only one standard across the entire market: the G1/4“thread. Now, there’s a new dimension. Increments of 7mm manage the height of products and the distance between ports.
