EK Launches New Velocity CPU Waterblocks Priced At $121
EK Water Blocks is proud to introduce the new generation of high-performance water blocks for popular AMD and Intel CPU sockets, the EK Velocity CPU Waterblocks. The new CPU water block will be available in a total of 14 versions featuring intricate RGB lit models, and down to simple minimalistic bare copper cold plate versions as well.
EK Expands Waterblocks To New Velocity Lineup
EK says what the inspiration for the new CPU block name “Velocity” was inspired by the necessity to be lean and agile in the world of liquid cooling. A high-performance CPU water block is no good if it is too restrictive on the flow and it is bottlenecking your entire cooling loop. Efficient coolant flow and performance should go hand in hand, and neither of the two should be sacrificed for one another.
EK-Velocity the new high-performance flagship premium quality CPU water block featuring the 5th iteration of the award-winning EK cooling engine which is further tweaked to perfection. Built upon a decade of experience in liquid cooling, EK Velocity series CPU water blocks are a product of countless hours of simulations, research and marketing-leading engineering.
The water block was updated on the inside as much it was redesigned on the outside as well. The changes led to a design that is simple, yet still striking and eye-catching. A new reinforced mounting bracket is introduced with smaller streamlined mounting screws. RGB versions of the block are equipped with 24 LEDs that are evenly surrounding the water block housing to create the most sophisticated lightning effect that has been seen on water blocks so far. The simplified cooling engine brings performance optimizations through more efficient flow and also easier maintenance for users.
Modern design with wide-array of options specific to your demands. Manufactured out of purest copper available, that is further nickel plated or machined with precision for best possible contact and heat transfer. Detail piece with the notch is stylish and diffuses the light from LEDs if you choose the RGB version. The angular top piece comes in a variety of materials, from black POM Acetal, glass like Acrylic to full Nickel, all made to simultaneously dazzle and perform on the Velocity CPU Waterblocks.
All new EK Velocity series CPU water blocks are compatible with all popular CPU sockets on the market. They feature a universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation supporting Intel 115x and Intel 20xx Sockets or AMD AM4 sockets respective to the CPU block model.
