EK-Quantum Velocity² ILM Replacement - 1700 replaces the motherboard's integrated loading mechanism (ILM) with a frame that bolsters the structural rigidity of the socket, motherboard, and even the CPU. It is used for cooling with regular EK-Quantum Velocity² CPU water blocks, not Direct Die models. 

Contact Frame EKWB

Due to the shape of the CPU and the way the stock ILM holds the CPU down, Intel 12th, 13th and 14th gen CPUs are prone to warping due to uneven pressure. This contact frame prevents any warping or bending of the CPU and the surrounding area, improving the cooling efficiency due to more even pressure applied on the CPU. As a result, the center that contains the CPU’s heat source is no longer concave due to bending, enabling improved contact with the cooler. 

Contact Frame EKWB

The replacement process is quite easy and straightforward, as it only requires unscrewing a few screws to remove the ILM. Leaving the CPU in the socket while mounting this contact frame protects the pins from accidentally dropped objects. 


  • Only works with regular water blocks, it is NOT for Direct Die models. Direct Die water blocks have their own ILM replacement frame that differs from this one.

Developed in collaboration with the famous german overclocker, that is one of the pioneers of extreme CPU cooling, Der8auer. Produced under license from Thermal Grizzly.


  • This product is exclusive to the 12th, 13th and 14th Gen Intel CPUs with their IHS intact
