Within only a few years, EK Water Blocks has developed into a leading supplier of high-quality Wakü components. Above all, it convinces with a range of coolers that offers different material combinations for every design. Performance and individual design are therefore equally weighted.
Another key component of every water cooling system, the radiator, is available from EKWB in various designs - now the CoolStream SE models have been added. These are flatter than the radis with the abbreviations "PE" and "XE" and once again combine high-quality workmanship, performance and design. Matt black and a very straightforward design with little rounded elements makes for a discreet-noble look. A major difference to previous EK Water Blocks radiator series is the very small height of 26 mm, which, together with the rather high plate density of 22 FPI designed for active cooling, enables high cooling performance in confined spaces.
The other qualities are hidden above all in detail. This is already clear when looking at the scale: With 700 g beats this 240 version to book, which is due to the very generous use of copper for the slats and pipes. On the other hand, the antechambers are made of brass and the housing of aluminum and steel - so the ideal material was used at each point.
The slat design has been optimized for optimal heat dissipation with 120 mm fans, which is why the radiator offers both slow speeds in silent systems, but also for high speeds in performance systems. With its large footprint and mounting capability for two 120mm fans, this version provides high cooling performance and can cool multiple components in the system.
The integration into the circuit takes place with two G1 / 4-inch threads, which are provided for maximum connection compatibility with pre-installed extenders. The required connections are not included. However, the required 5 mm and 30 mm screws are included, which are used to install the required fans on the radiator and to mount the radis in the housing.
