Product Overview

High Performance, Low Flow Restriction

The EK-Quantum Magnitude is the new ultimate bespoke CPU water block from EK that brings the highest cooling performance with the lowest possible flow restriction. The AM4 version of the water block is using a specific combination of flow distribution insert, mounting pressure, and cold plate geometry tailored for the IHS and chiplet layout of AMD AM4 socket processors.

Different from any mounting structure used by other water blocks that are usually black and mundane plates, the design accentuates an integrated H-shaped, three-dimensional frame with premium finishes that firmly cradles the main body in place while the screws are morphed into a sophisticated design detail.


Premium Materials

Specialised manufacturing techniques were deployed to create this truly unique product. Not a single component of Magnitude was made using mass production techniques; instead, every single piece was CNC machined separately, out of a solid piece of material. This version of the water block features a nickel-plated copper cold plate with a high-grade glass-like top CNC machined out of cast acrylic.

A CNC machined solid brass insert made it possible to significantly enlarge and optimise the cooling engine. Compared to previous generations of water blocks, the fin array has a 50% bigger surface area, all contained in a smaller footprint to ensure maximum compatibility even with mITX motherboards. The copper cold plate uses 0.40mm wide microchannels and 0.26mm thick microfins to maximise the thermal transfer with minimal flow restriction.


Offset Insert

Since EK-Quantum Magnitude was engineered from the ground up for each specific socket, the AM4 version features an offset insert that directs more flow over the AMD Ryzen CPU chiplets with the I/O die still getting plenty of flow to keep it cool.


Interchangeable Inner Frame

The aesthetic interchangeable inner frame is also machined out of a single piece of brass, which is subsequently nickel-plated. The aesthetic frame can be replaced with colour-anodised aluminium variants that perfectly match EK-Quantum Torque fitting lineup or with a white POM acetal piece that can be used as a light dispersion element for addressable D-RGB LEDs. The aesthetic interchangeable inner frames are sold separately.

Elegantly concealed under the aesthetic inner frame is a LED strip boasting the incredible 30, individually addressable D-RGB diodes that shine inward and illuminate the translucent top. The addressable D-RGB is using an industry-standard 3-pin 5V digital LED connector (Pinout: +5V, Data, Blocked, Ground).

The mounting mechanism is a three-dimensional H shaped aluminium piece that makes the screws a seamless part of the water block. Strong edges and chamfers root this award-winning icon firmly among the EK-Quantum line. Did we say award-winning?


Award Winning

EK-Quantum Magnitude is bearing the prestigious iF Design award for its bold and different approach to the CPU water block mounting mechanism.

The cold plate of the Magnitude water block is intentionally machined into a convex shape to align with the concave shape of the CPU IHS. However, if you are interested in a flat cold plate that works perfectly with lapped CPUs or aftermarket IHSs, EK is providing a special, flat bare copper as well as nickel-plated copper cold plates that are sold separately.

The Magnitude is supplied with an additional, thicker jet plate. If the user concludes that his CPU IHS is exceptionally concave (poor thermal paste spread after mounting), the curvature of the water block cold plate can be adjusted by using this secondary jet plate. It will make the centre of the contact area bow by an additional 0.1mm outwards, for it to make better contact with the IHS.

Watercooling
Date Issued: 19th Jun 2008

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.
