EK Launches Quantum Torsion A60, the First Ever Matrix7 PC Case

EK, the premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the limited edition EK-Quantum Torsion A60 PC case, created specially for liquid-cooled builds. It is entirely built of CNC-milled aluminium, weighing around 22 kg. The EK-Quantum Torsion A60 is not just a case but a statement. Its machined channels for custom-sleeved cables and an integrated D5-powered distribution plate make it a true marvel for water-cooling enthusiasts. The case fits the mid-tower standard and fits up to three medium-thick EK-Quantum Surface P360 radiators. A tempered glass side panel, an integrated vertical GPU bracket, and support for ATX and E-ATX motherboards are only a few of the perks this chassis has to offer.

Crafted in Aluminium, Cooled in Style
EK-Quantum Torsion A60 boasts a chassis machined entirely out of 6082 aluminium alloy using state-of-the-art CNC machining. The 6082 alloy has the highest strength among the 6000 series alloys and boasts excellent corrosion resistance. This results in a case that not only exudes durability but radiates a sense of refined elegance. The precisely engineered design showcases attention to detail in every facet, making it the perfect canvas for your liquid cooling ambitions. Every piece is held together with hex screws, so you can disassemble, customize, and modify anything you desire.

This mid-size case comes in two color options, anodized in either satin Black or satin Silver:

  • EK-Quantum Torsion A60 Silver Limited Edition
  • EK-Quantum Torsion A60 Black Limited Edition

This case features a semi-open design, where its top is open with a special handle milled out, allowing you to move or carry the case. The minimalist yet striking design, enhanced by the sleek aluminium look, makes it a focal point in any environment.

The tempered glass side panel beautifully displays internal components, allowing you to exhibit your water-cooling masterpiece. Stylish aluminium thumbscrews hold the panel in place.

Limited Edition, Unique Opportunity
This case is limited to a production run of only 777 pieces. Out of these 777, two-thirds will be Black and one-third Silver. Each chassis will have its serial number engraved on a plate proudly displayed near the top of the motherboard tray.

Cable Channels With Aluminium Cable Holders
EK-Quantum Torsion A60 allows you to achieve a clean, clutter-free build that shows off your cables. The thick aluminium motherboard tray holds grooves for all the important power cables:

  • Twin 8-pin CPU EPS cables
  • Up to three 8-pin PCIe power cables for the GPU or 12VHPWR cables
  • ATX 24-pin motherboard cable

Each separate custom-sleeved cable fits into its own channel. For the GPU power cables, two types of cable holders are included based on the GPU connector being either standard 8-pin PCIe-based or 12VHPWR. The case comes with three holders for each of the GPU connectors.

Cable Compatibility
EK suggests a cable diameter of 2.5 – 3.0 mm. This thickness includes the wire and insulation. When sleeving is added, the cable should fit into the 4.2 mm groove of the case. The 4.2 mm channel was chosen so cables could reach the perfect alignment as they do in the connectors.

Cable-Sleeving Experts
Should you decide that sleeving the cables yourself is too much work, we recommend a few cable-sleeving experts who make custom cables.

Integrated Premium Distribution Plate
This advanced all-in-one waterway solution offers exceptional design and unmatched ease of use. It includes a pump, reservoir, and multiple industry standard G1/4″ threaded inlets and outlets. Thanks to the EK-Matrix7 concept, the placement of these inlets and outlets is precisely aligned with other EK Quantum products, minimizing the complexities of tube routing and ensuring a clean and organized loop with perfectly straight tubes.

RGB on the Integrated Distribution Plate
The built-in addressable 14-LED strip can be connected to the motherboard’s 5V header or a dedicated D-RGB controller. It is compatible with numerous popular RGB synchronization software, including MSI MYSTIC LIGHT SYNC, ASROCK POLYCHROME SYNC, ASUS AURA SYNC, and GIGABYTE RGB FUSION 2, allowing you to achieve a coordinated lighting effect across your entire system.

PWM-Controlled D5 Pump (3rd Generation)
This water distribution plate comes with a powerful yet silent PWM-controlled D5 pump. The goal was to make a product with enough power to offer excellent reliability and outstanding performance while keeping the noise down to a minimum. The D5 pump has been updated with the latest G3 variant with a SATA power connector, following the newest PC industry trend of a decreased use of 4-pin Molex cables. EK-Quantum Convection, a premium aesthetic cover CNC-machined out of pure aluminium, is mounted over the pump.

EK-Matrix7 Support
The EK-Matrix7 standardizes the products’ dimensions, including the port position and spacing, making liquid cooling loop assembly easier and more intuitive. EK-Quantum Torsion cases follow the EK-Matrix7 standard, enabling them to integrate with the Quantum product lineup seamlessly. This means you’ll spend less time planning the loop and bending tubes, resulting in an epic, sleek-looking, liquid-cooled build.

Radiator Support and Push-In Fittings
This case supports up to three EK-Quantum Surface P360 medium-thickness radiators, allowing you to cool truly high-end hardware. These radiators are mounted via special push-in fittings, available separately, and in multiple finishes to match your chosen case. EK-Quantum Surface S360 or shorter versions can also be used if you prefer slimmer radiators but require 14 mm Male-Female extenders. This case exclusively supports EK-Quantum Surface radiators.

The radiators have an unobstructed path to get hot air away from the case through a mesh opening in the side panel.

Integrated Vertical GPU Bracket
A stylish integrated vertical GPU bracket is factory-installed and also milled out of aluminium. It can carry weights that surpass water-blocked graphics cards by far. In this case, GPU sag is a thing of the past, not allowing anything to impede the aesthetics.

Optional Power Button
The chassis has an external power button on the back that can be hidden if you prefer to use the motherboard power button.
