EK-Quantum Velocity² Direct Die D-RGB - AMD Ryzen Special Edition is explicitly engineered for the AMD® AM5 socket and delidded Ryzen™ 7000 CPUs, including the X3D variants. The product deploys a custom-engineered cooling engine optimized only for AM5 direct die cooling. The cold plate contact surface is designed with protruding sections that perfectly match the CPU chiplets and its I/O die. It requires the removal of the IHS, the process popularly called Delidding.

It comes packaged in a special box with a delid tool and conformal coating to protect the SMDs.

EK AM5 Ryzen 7000 Direct Die CPU Water Block

This CPU water block is EK-Matrix7 compliant.

EK-Quantum Velocity² Direct Die D-RGB - AMD Ryzen Special Edition

This new direct die AM5 water block is built upon an award-winning, market-recognized Velocity² platform that received an iF Design, European Hardware, and CES Innovation awards. The EK-Quantum Vector² RX 7900 XTX Radeon Edition inspires the new CPU water block design, featuring a black-anodized aluminum frame around the seethrough acrylic top.

The mounting mechanism differs from the one on the Velocity² Direct Die 1700 water block, as it relies on standoffs at all corners instead of the cold plate making contact with the die guard. 

Cooling Engine

This flow optimization was done with a specialized jet plate and its offset slip that forces the coolant to flow over the hottest parts of the microfins, just above the chiplets. The whole fin array was offset to avoid CPU parts producing little to no heat. The cold plate’s protruding sections were designed to cover the CPU chiplets.

The fin structure has been adjusted to direct most of the flow over the chiplets and some over the central I/O die.

Water Block Material and Manufacturing

The cold plate is manufactured out of the highest grade 99.99%-pure electrolytic copper, machined with precision for the best possible contact and heat transfer which is further nickel-plated.  The top is seethrough glass-like acrylic, with rich D-RGB illumination shining through the window. The body of this water block is framed in sandblasted aluminum anodized in black.

A vertical terminal of black acetal perfectly blends with the water block appearance, giving it a sharp look.

Die Guard

The die guard that comes with the CPU requires removing the CPU loading mechanism. It ensures the PCB doesn’t bend and makes an electrical connection with the socket pins.

Thermal Grizzly Ryzen 7000 Delid-Die-Mate

The Delid-Die-Mate is a delidding or IHS removal tool. It lets users remove the Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) from their Ryzen 7000 CPUs and directly cool the CPU die. It is a safe, easy, quick, and ultimately practical way of removing the IHS.

Thermal Grizzly TG Shield

The TG Shield compound protects the SMDs (Surface-Mounted Devices) around the chips from possible liquid metal spillage. So, even if liquid metal happens to be excessively applied and spilled over these components, it will not cause a short circuit and damage the CPU. The TG Shield should be applied generously to ensure you won’t instantly remove it when using alcohol to clean the chiplets or the liquid metal.


The EK-Quantum Velocity² is an EK-Matrix7 compatible product. The EK-Matrix7 is a product raster that is bound to set a new standard. EK is adding a new dimension to PC liquid cooling, where the height of products and the distance between ports are managed by increments of 7mm. This improves product alignment and reduces the time spent planning the loop and bending tubes. Through the meticulous planning of our products, building a liquid-cooled PC becomes easy and fun, just like toy bricks.

  • It is mandatory to follow the user manual step-by-step. Not doing so can result in fatal damage to your processor.

  • Delidding the CPU voids its warranty.

  • Delidding entails a very risky modification of the CPU and may, even when adequately performed, result in damage to the processing unit.

  • EKWB will not assume any responsibility or liability for damages to the CPU inflicted during or as a consequence of delidding. All liability for damages to the CPU is disclaimed. You do it at your own risk.


  • This product should NOT be installed with any aluminum EK Fluid Gaming parts!
  • The use of specifically engineered coolants that contain corrosion, scale, and biological inhibitors is mandatory to prevent damage to your nickel-plated water block! EK is offering a selection of such products in the coolants section.
  • The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB(A-RGB) header.
  • Delidding is intended to be undertaken by an adequately trained and experienced professional.
