Hi Guys

Our buddies at EK Water Blocks are about to launch a really impressive new bit of kit.

AIO coolers are great, but this thing is made by people who know watercooling inside out. Needless to say, they are going to be very sought after.

W2Hmtwul.jpg


EK-Predator is pre-filled and pre-assembled CPU liquid cooling unit. It comes in two different versions; 240mm and 360mm and provides extreme cooling performance unseen in the AIO segment so far.

It also uses EK-Vardar high static pressure fans in combination with PWM controls to provide minimal noise footprint which is a common issue for existing AIO users.

Since EK-Predator uses industry standard G1/4 threaded ports and 10/16 mm Zero Maintenance rubber tubing (EK-ZMT) it is fully expandable with all custom loop gear available on the market.

Furthermore Predator 360 will feature integrated Quick Disconnects (QDC), special connectors that allow quick and tool-less expansion of the system without the need for draining of the unit. This allows users to add, for example, a prefilled QDC-enabled GPU water block. EKWB will offer such custom add-ons at the release date of Predator 360.

Technical highlights:

HovercoreTM is revolutionary design of radiator dampeners that prevents transfer of pump vibrations further down the unit and into the chassis, thus resulting in vibration free and silent operation.

SupremacyTM MX CPU water block, top performer in Enthusiast segment, is specifically designed for Intel CPUs and offers great hydraulic and thermal performance. Carefully machined copper base is made from purest copper available and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of the block.

CoolStreamTM PE radiator – 240mm or 360mm, has full Copper core being superior to aluminum alternatives in terms of heat dissipation. In conjunction with EK-Vardar fans the result is increased performance across entire fan operational range thus delivering results both at low and high airflow operation.

VardarTM fans – two on Predator 240 and three on Predator 360 – are high static pressure fans developed in-house specifically for liquid cooling systems. With low noise profile and PWM technology built in, you can always control the RPM and keep the fans silent while maintaining excellent cooling performance.

DDC pump is a powerful 6W liquid cooling pump providing 2-3x higher flow rate compared to other AIOs on the market. It’s also PWM controlled allowing for automatic pump speed regulation depending on your CPU temperature. Full performance on demand or whisper quiet operation in idle mode!

Integrated Fan splitter hub reduces cable clutter and keeps the unit aesthetically clean. Predator pump and fans plug into the unit itself with only one PWM cable going into CPU Fan socket, while a single SATA molex cable powers the complete unit.

Dimensions of the main radiator unit on Predator 240, with integrated pump and reservoir are: 295mm x 133mm x 68mm. This allows mounting of unit in most modern computer cases. Predator 360 is a bit bigger beast, measuring 415mm x 133mm x 68mm! EKWB will provide list of compatilble cases before launch.

EK-Predator 240 will launch on September 23rd 2015 priced at 199$/£140.31, with EK-Predator 360 following on October 19th 2015 priced at 239$/£168.52. Both units will only be available for Intel CPU sockets. AMD versions are planned for release in 2016.

OcUK Tech Labs Custom EK Water Blocks Predator 240 All In One Watercooling Solution @ £184.99 inc VAT

WC-127-TL_400.jpg


OcUK Tech Labs has taken the revolutionary new Predator all in one watercooling system from EK water blocks and added a custom flair. Each Predator comes from the factory with their own ZMT Rubber tubing which looks great and has a stealthy look. Here at Overclockers UK we know that enthusiasts are always searching for a unique option and that is why we modified the looks of the Predator cooler to include a raft of modification options.

We carefully disassemble the stock Predator cooler and remove the tubing. We replace this opaque black tubing with industry leading Primochill LRT tubing which is considered by many watercooling enthusiasts as the very best there is. The Primochill LRT tubing has exceptional clarity and whilst it doesn't have the same bend radius as the stock tubing [this may not be ideal in very confined cases], the overall appearance of the Predator cooler is vastly improved and will fit in well with your colour scheme using our huge range of coolant options from Mayhems coolants.

Please note that the bend radius of the clear tubing used in this cooler is not as tight as the stock tubing. Please ensure your system has ample space for installation and that there are no kinks in the tubing when the block is installed.

Look forward to the performance reviews on this. I've heard varder are good, but the ratio of blade area to the spindle looks a little on the low side on those fans.

With the pump slapped on the end of the rad, overall length is going to be a factor.

the QDC is basically there so you can add a GPU to the loop easily. I will agree though, its not the best looking thing ive ever seen.

Once i have got my hands on one and got confirmation of how it works and done some testing, we will be offering ocuk tech labs versions too.

but in stock form, they are pretty bad ass anyway.

How will these differ from the stock version?

not sure yet, will have to see what I can do to make them unique or worth modifying.

Was thinking of clear tubing and a range of coolant types to start with.

Ideally we will just buy Predators from EK to sell to end users and then buy the rad pump combos to make our own all in one coolers to save money and also save wasting tubing etc. perhaps we will offer an upgraded block or include the option of a watercooled Graphics card in the loop or something.

I need to do some testing first really.

Rad looks OK, pump looks fine, block looks good... Just the bits between!
The 360 QDC looks like something used in home-user self-maintenance medical solutions!!

I might possibly have been interested... But since I just dropped a load of cash on some EKWB custom loop kit, I don't have to care!!

Hope it works out well, though!

Its a lovely looking product, if it can get near to matching the top end air coolers in terms of noise then I would be very tempted indeed. Is there an advance view of the fpi on the rad?

judging by the products used in it, DDC pump, Vardar fans etc

it will be much quieter than any air cooler available.

They are sending me performance comparisons tomorrow also. will update when I am allowed to share.
