EKWB recently announced their latest EK Lignum product line. This is a unique product line because the CPU block, GPU block and fittings have a wood surface or finish. Usually we see EK water blocks with a transparent acrylic cover or metal plate. Tube fittings are typically metal-finished as well. So for those who water cools their system and wants something different, or make their system look closer to nature, EKWB has the solution for you. Learn more about the new EK Lignum line from the official news below.
EK Lignum (Wood) Water Block and Fittings Released
EK, the leading premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, announces the global launch of the new signature edition product portfolio – EK Lignum®. It is inspired by Mr. Edvard König’s love for woodwork and modern computer technologies. A perfect symbiosis of the oldest natural building material and contemporary high-end cooling solutions. An unparalleled example of how your PC can reflect your lifestyle. EK Lignum and it’s wooden opulence can bring a feeling of comfort and warmth to your home while keeping your PC cool and silent for its maximum possible performance.
The first choice was walnut (Juglans Nigra) because of the fact that it never fails to surprise with its colors and texture. The connection between the water block and the wood enables wood shrinking and expanding which is one of its most natural predispositions in response to the changes in humidity and temperature. EK Lignum products were engineered in a way so that the wood does not come into direct contact with water. Every block has a unique pattern of wood, which makes it one of a kind in the world.
- EK-CPU Lignum – Walnut is the luxurious high-performance flagship premium quality CPU water block covered with Walnut. It features the award-winning EK cooling engine and fits both newer generations of Intel® and AMD® processors.
- EK-FC RTX 2080 Ti Lignum – Walnut is an aesthetic redesign of the EK-Vector RE block for NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX series graphics cards, based on Turing TU104 and Turing TU102 graphics processor. The top and the terminal piece are covered in walnut under which is a high-quality POM material acting as a functional top of the block.
- EK-HTC Lignum 12mm – Walnut is the hard tube fitting made to perfectly blend with EK Lignum water blocks. It is made for 12mm (Outer Diameter) hard tubing.
Every single piece of wood is carefully chosen, handcrafted and varnished with multiple layers. The open pore matte varnish gives the wood its natural silky touch. It is attached to the acetal tops which seal the block and act as functional tops, while wood acts as aesthetical one, thus there is no contact of wood with liquid in the custom loop.
