EK, the water cooling gear manufacturer based in Slovenia, Europe, is proud to present its newest addition to the Quantum Line of products – the EK-Quantum Magnitude. It’s a new, ultimate CPU water block that brings the highest performance to all platforms by using specific flow distribution, cold plate geometry, and mounting pressure tailored to each IHS.
EK-Quantum Magnitude is bearing the prestigious iF Design award for the bold and different approach to the CPU water block mounting mechanism. Differentiated from any mounting structure of a water block that is usually a black and mundane plate, the design accentuates an integrated X- or H-shaped three-dimensional frame with premium finishes that firmly cradles the main body in place, while the screws are morphed into sophisticated design details.
As a part of the Quantum Lineup ideology, the new water block is equipped with interchangeable accent frames available in various colors, finishes, and materials. The EK-Quantum Magnitude comes in Intel 115x, 20xx, and AMD AM4 socket optimized configurations, with each being available in four different material versions. There’s a choice of two models in each variation equipped with addressable D-RGB LEDs, elegantly concealed under the aesthetic inner-frame.
Specialized manufacturing techniques were deployed to create this truly unique product. Not a single component of Magnitude was made using mass production techniques; instead, every single piece was CNC-milled separately, out of a solid piece of material. At the heart of Magnitude lies the CNC-machined solid brass insert. This component made it possible to significantly enlarge and optimize the cooling engine. Compared to previous generations of water blocks, the fin array has a 50% bigger surface area, all contained in a smaller footprint to ensure maximum compatibility. The copper cold plate uses 0.40 mm wide microchannels and 0.26 mm thick microfins to maximize the thermal transfer with minimal flow restriction.
Availability and Pricing
EK-Quantum Magnitude and EK-Quantum Accent products are made in Slovenia, Europe and are readily available for the order through the EK Webshop or EK Partner Reseller Network. Prices range from $209.99 to $269.99 for the blocks themselves.
