Computex 2021 is absolutely underway and one of many expos that caught my eye was EKWB’s. EK, a number one participant on this planet of liquid cooling, involves the desk asserting the most recent from their prebuilt methods for each professionals and avid gamers. It didn’t cease there although, EKWB has additionally introduced new strains of merchandise, together with AIOs, water blocks, and fittings.
Let’s check out what they’ll be bringing us.
EK Fluid Works
EK Fluid Works was launched earlier this yr and the model is increasing on its portfolio of high-performance multi GPU liquid cooling workstations, of which, EK is the one producer to supply a whole lineup on this space.

Fluid Works introduces two new editions into their studio and compute collection – The X7000C (compact) and the X7000RM (rackmount).
The X7000C is a compact model of the highest-end mannequin X7000, providing server-grade compute and render efficiency in a small desktop type issue. This technique Suits as much as 4 liquid cooled GPUs and is good for AI, deep studying, and any execs that want high-end efficiency. This machine can also be whisper-quiet due to the pump/fan controller we talked about earlier.
X7000C (Compact) Specs –
- AMD EPYC 7502p
- AMD EPYC 7642
- AMD EPYC 7702p
- 1 to 4 absolutely liquid cooled GPUs
Cooling system – twin pumps and rads, with 2 followers per rad, and industrial-grade QDCs.
X7000RM (Rack Mount) Specs –
- AMD EPYC 7502p
- AMD EPYC 7642
- AMD EPYC 7702p
- 1 to 7 absolutely liquid cooled GPUs (RTX 3090, Quadro RTX 6000/8000, Quadro a6000, V100, A100)
- 4x 1200W PSU
- 3 continuously powered
- 1 for redundant automated failover
Cooling system – three rads and a couple of pumps. All of the water cooling is self-contained inside, which means you’ll be able to merely set up this in any normal rackmount server rack and it’s good to go.
New AIO Vary
There are 4 new AIO “collection” coming to EKWBs product vary that shall be often known as their Nucleus line, firstly the LUX Sequence which incorporates a translucent prime. Subsequent up is the Imaginative and prescient Sequence, with a LED read-out show of temps that connects VIA USB C.
Two extra AIO collection will be part of them within the not-so-distant future, the Darkish Sequence geared toward budget-focused builders and the Elite Sequence for additional devices and an upgraded pump.
From the imagery alone these AIOs look glorious, taking place the identical route as NZXT with the flexibility to point out efficiency markers and temp information on the LCD. You too can add any picture/GIF you wish to the pump and the pump can simply rotate to make sure you get the branding the correct manner up.
The radiator has additionally now going to have a canopy, the rubber tubing now incorporates a cloth shroud, and the brand new becoming positions imply you’ll be able to simply mount this on the entrance of your case.

EKs first small type issue gaming PC is constructed contained in the Lian Li O11D Mini and shall be powered by the brand new EK AIO Plus that can deal with the cooling for each the CPU and GPU concurrently.
This new SFX line presents avid gamers a extra inexpensive entry level into liquid cooling gaming PCs and goes to start out at $1999.
EK Fluid Gaming Mini Sequence Specs –
- 16GB GSkill Trident RGB 3200MHz
- MSI MAG B550M Mortar + Wi-Fi
EK-Quantum Product Bulletins
EK has invested in re-designing and refining its radiators and followers. They introduced that they are going to be releasing 50 new rads together with multi-port and crossflow fashions for extra versatility. The Radiators are cut up into efficiency classes:
- S(slim) 30mm thick, splendid for smaller builds
- P(efficiency) 44mm thick,
- X(Xtreme) 58mm thick.
The multi-port fashions will supply versatility for tube routing and make it simpler so as to add a drain valve to your loop. The cross-flow incorporates a complete of 8 ports and permits the consumer to choose any 4 ports on one facet to realize the proper tube route.
Lastly, EK introduced their new White-colored radiator lineup. Now each new rad shall be out there in white, giving potential builders much more alternative.
EK introduced two new fan merchandise too.
EK Quantum Section full body followers are designed for high-performance rad cooling, maximizing the propeller dimension.
EK Quantum Impulse followers include a full RGB body.
EK has been busy and launched the brand new EK Quantum Vector2 CPU and GPU water blocks, which characteristic a whole redesign. This consists of tailoring the CPU blocks for particular motherboard sockets, a brand new aesthetic, and a brand new patent-pending mounting mechanism, making the set up course of toolless. This new system helps clear up the aesthetics and simplifies the method (not that it was ever onerous).
The Vector2 GPU Water blocks will observe the identical development, with an RGB LED strip being positioned on the lengthy facet of the block and accompanied by a brand new fashion of backplate integration.
That wasn’t all although, EK additionally introduced new Momentum monoblocks, reflection distro plates, and RAM water blocks are additionally according to this facelift.
Lastly, we have been proven a brand new addition to their in depth becoming catalog. EK is including gold-colored Torque fittings into their vary, wooo.
