EK Water Blocks EK-Velocity CPU Water Block

Its been about six years since EK launched their very successful line up of Supremacy water blocks. However, as processors evolve to include more cores and higher TDPs, as too must water blocks. This has led to EK’s new Velocity line up of high-performance CPU water blocks with the 5th iteration of their EK cooling engine. Part of the new Quantum lineup of cooling products, the EK-Velocity block is the CPU oriented piece of a new complete picture with the philosophy that everything in the liquid cooling loop is interconnected.
Velocity is a completely new design both inside and out. There is a new reinforced mounting bracket, which will introduce smaller mounting screws. Like most hardware you can buy in 2018, the EK-Velocity does have an RGB version. The RGB version comes with 24 LEDs which are evenly spaced around the outer edge of the block housing. The RGB blocks will be labeled so and are compatible with all of the more popular RGB lighting software such as ASUS Aura Sync and RGB Fusion just to name a couple.
