STAND-ALONE D5 WITH A QUANTUM TOP

June 15, 2020 – EK® Water Blocks, the world-renowned premium liquid cooling manufacturer, is releasing EK-Quantum Inertia D5 PWM D-RGB standalone pump units. These standalone pumps are an evolution of the very popular and successful EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM pumps, now available with sophisticated D-RGB LED lighting and an updated design aligning with the EK Quantum Line. These units offer increased hydraulic performance (up to 15%) compared to the original factory top.

Inertia standalone pumps come in two different models, with either a CNC-machined black POM acetal or CNC-machined cast-acrylic. Both the 50cm long power cable and 60cm long PWM signal cable are equipped with black sleeving.

Proper LED illumination without unwanted LED hotspots is achieved with a black cover on the Plexi model and diffused by a milky-white piece on the acetal model.

These products are compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB (aRGB) header.

EK-Quantum Inertia D5 PWM D-RGB is a high-performance liquid cooling pump, built around the market-proven genuine D5 pump and new Quantum Inertia top with an advanced vibration-reducing mounting clamp.

The D5 pump is equipped with an electronically commutated spherical motor. In a pump with a spherical motor, the only moving part is a spherically shaped rotor that is held in place by a bearing ball made of ultra-hard and wear-resistant ceramic. The Revo D5 pump volute/body system features a fully rounded design, offering greater usability and allowing installation at any angle within 360° of rotation. A special rubber shock absorber is used to de-couple the main pump body from the mounting clip for silent operation, free of vibration-induced noise. Additionally, horizontal and vertical positioning is supported for easier tube routing possibilities.

EK-Quantum Inertia D5 PWM D-RGB standalone pumps are made in Slovenia, and available for pre-order through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network.
