Press Release

EKWB introduces the EK-Quantum Velocity˛ D-RGB 1200 for the Intel LGA 1200 socket processors, the successor of the EK-Quantum Velocity CPU water block featuring the EK-Matrix7 and a new mounting system. This new EK CPU water block has a socket-specific design to provide the perfect mounting pressure with an Intel LGA 1200 socket processor. A new, patent-pending EK-Exact Mount mounting system was developed in the search for an easy-to-use but aesthetically pleasing mounting mechanism.

EK-Exact Mounting Mechanism

The new EK-Exact Mounting mechanism simplifies the new water block to only consist of three pieces – backplate, water block, and screws. There are no washers and springs with the new mechanism, unlike the older EKWB water blocks. The new system uses pre-tensioned springs concealed and pre-installed on the EK-Quantum Velocity˛ D-RGB 1200 water block. Given the design of the EK-Quantum Velocity˛, the mounting screws are inserted from the back.

The EK-Quantum Velocity˛ is an EK-Matrix7 certified product. The EK-Matrix7 is a convenient product raster that adds a new dimension to PC liquid cooling, where increments of 7mm manage the height of products and the distance between ports. 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.
