EK‘s popular CPU water blocks were the Supremacy series and it has lasted for six years already. EK has recently made one step further and released the new EK Velocity CPU Water Blocks. The EK-Velocity series is a new generation of high-performance water blocks that is designed and compatible with Intel and AMD CPU sockets. There are a total of 14 variants available; from simple and minimalistic look, to bare copper cold plate and even RGB models for those who like to have their system some lighting accent. The new EK-Velocity will become available starting October 1, 2018 and price starting at 69.90€. Check out the official news below for more details.

Meet the New EK-Velocity CPU Water Blocks

The new 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’s too restrictive on the flow and 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, is 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 market-leading engineering.

The water block was updated on the inside as much as it was redesigned on the outside. 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 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 or glass-like Acrylic to full Nickel, all made to simultaneously dazzle and perform.
