EK-Quantum Delta² TEC D-RGB - Full Nickel is the latest generation of cryo-cooling water block that is made in collaboration with Intel®. It is a unique cooling solution for enthusiasts who are seeking consistent system performance and ultimate overclocking on unlocked 12th Gen Intel® Core™ desktop processors.

EK-Quantum Delta2 TEC - Thermo electric cooler for LGA 1700 and 12th gen Intel CPUs

List of currently supported CPUs:

  • Intel® Core™ i9-12900K Processor (30M Cache, up to 5.20 GHz)
  • Intel® Core™ i9-12900KF Processor (30M Cache, up to 5.20 GHz)
  • Intel® Core™ i9-12900KS Processor (30M Cache, up to 5.50 GHz)

Improvements in Delta² TEC Technology

EK-Quantum Delta² TEC D-RGB - Full Nickel brings numerous improvements to the design, 4 cutting-edge Aluminum Nitride (AlN) Ceramic TEC plates soldered to the coldplate. These AlN TEC plates offer significantly higher power efficiency over the previous Aluminum Oxide variants. The main water block is following the EK-Quantum design language with EK-Matrix7 compatibility. Insulation is also improved, ensuring an even higher level of safety. The water block uses built-in mounting screws already equipped with retention springs. It also has two additional thermal sensors - one on the hot and one on the cold side of the Peltier element - for precise monitoring and control of the TEC plates.

The controller unit also boasts EK-Quantum design language to fit perfectly with the rest of the loop. It is now independent of the main block and comes with an EK 120mm fan-mounting bracket, so you can position it inside your case so as to not impede the visual appearance of the main water block and receive additional cooling. The control unit can now connect and control the pump and fans of the loop used to cool the TEC plate, making it even more user-friendly.

EK-Quantum Delta² TEC D-RGB - Full Nickel CPU water block has four built-in Peltier/Thermoelectric cooler plates. It is powered by Intel® Cryo Cooling Technology, a unique combination of hardware, software, and firmware designed to help unleash elite performance for gamers and overclockers. The water block itself features a robust all-metal design for extreme conditions with a rubber insulation shroud that isolates the water block cold plate from the environment, impeding condensation. A sensor in the controller unit also measures humidity to prevent reaching the dew point.

The cold plate is CNC-machined out of high-purity electrolytic copper, which enables high thermal performance. A large surface area, covered with cooling fins, transfers the heat away from the quad, purpose-made TEC plates.

Built upon a purpose-designed large surface flow-through cooling engine together with Intel Cryo Cooling Technology, bridging aesthetic uniformity and near-silent operations with technological advancements in thermal solutions, the EK-Quantum Delta² TEC D-RGB - Full Nickel is an exceptional application of cooling the CPU with sub-ambient temperatures by utilizing Thermoelectric Cooler (TEC) plates while continuously monitoring and adjusting temperatures dynamically, achieving an ideal operating environment for sustained gaming performance.   

How does this EK-Quantum Delta² TEC water block work?

Liquid coolers are unable to reach temperatures below ambient (room) temperature, but the EK-Quantum Delta² TEC D-RGB - Full Nickel is cutting-edge, as it actively cools the CPU to sub-ambient temperatures while extracting and dissipating the heat generated from the four TEC plates through the traditional liquid cooling loop.  While the TEC plates cool the CPU, the TEC plates are cooled entirely by your custom liquid loop.

Doesn't sub-ambient cooling cause condensation?

The EK-Quantum Delta² TEC series products utilize an innovative two-pronged approach to mitigate thermal condensation, a byproduct that has plagued previous attempts of sub-ambient cooling. The cooler features a new integrated rubber insulation shroud that isolates all exposed cold surfaces from the environmental conditions inside the PC, while the Intel Cryo Cooling Technology continuously monitors and adapts to those conditions to minimize condensation risk generated by the cooling process.

  • Given that the CPU is cooled by the EK-Quantum Delta² TEC directly to achieve low temperatures, the rest of your liquid cooling loop will be under stress from the TEC plates. Do not use your CPU temperatures as a baseline for your Fan or Pump speeds! It is best to monitor the coolant temperature or set the fans and pump at a fixed speed level!
  • To keep your warranty please use licensed Intel software and follow the manual.
  • Delta TEC is not designed for ALL CORE MAX frequency under heavy load, but it's intended for a lighter load like gaming and ONE CORE MAX boost. The TEC is not suitable for benchmarking with software like Prime95 which heavily loads all cores on the CPU.
