EK-Quantum Velocity 2; - 1700 Lignum Edition - Walnut is the Signature Edition high-performance premium quality CPU water block for the new Intel® socket LGA 1700-based platform. At its core is a next-generation cooling engine that is socket-specific. This CPU water block is EK-Matrix7 compliant and is mounted via a patent-pending EK Exact Mount system. It features all the perks of EK-Quantum Velocity 2; with the added bonus of a uniquely luxurious wooden cover. Each water block has a unique wood pattern that differs from every other water block that is made.
OptiFlow Cooling Engine
EK-Quantum Velocity 2; series CPU water blocks embed the next generation cooling engine named OptiFlow. They use a specific combination of mounting pressure and coldplate geometry tailored for the IHS and die layout of Intel LGA 1700 socket processors. Low hydraulic flow restriction enables these products to be used in setups using weaker water pumps or lower pump speeds for added silent operation, while still achieving top performance! Th? lathe-turned coldplate is made with precision to effectively cover the IHS and put pressure on the die area.
The Velocity 2; series water blocks cover the entirety of the socket while conforming to Intel guidelines about safe zones.
Water Block Material and Manufacturing
The coldplate is manufactured out of the highest-grade 99.99% pure electrolytic copper, machined with precision for the best possible contact and heat transfer which is further nickel-plated. This version of the water block features a nickel-plated cold plate with a CNC machined black POM acetal top piece covered by a hand-crafted Walnut wood piece.
The EK-Quantum Velocity 2; is an EK-Matrix7 compatible product. The EK-Matrix7, a product raster that is bound to set a new standard. EK is adding a new dimension to PC liquid cooling, where the height of products and the distance between ports are managed by increments of 7mm. This improves product alignment and reduces the time spent planning the loop and bending tubes. Through the meticulous planning of our products, building a liquid-cooled PC becomes easy and fun, just like toy bricks.
EK-Quantum Velocity 2; Patent-pending Mounting
EK-Exact Mount is a patent-pending mounting system designed and engineered by EK in the search for an easy-to-use, but aesthetically pleasing mounting mechanism. It's made up of only three pieces - the backplate, mounting screws, and the water block itself. It's screwed in from the back allowing for a seamless and clean front aesthetic without any screws disrupting the harmony of shape. The system uses pre-tensioned springs concealed in the water block top, so with just a few turns of the thumb nuts, the installation is finished, and you get the exact mounting pressure needed.
