Uncovering EK's TOP SECRET QuantumX Project | The Future of Computer Water Cooling? | Part 1

Uncovering EK's TOP SECRET QuantumX Project | The Future of Computer Water Cooling? | Part 1

Welcome to the very first “Inside QuantumX” episode! This a unique chance for our viewers to take a peek behind EK’s RnD curtain and see firsthand how the product creation looks like in our Skunkworks subdivision, dedicated to experimental RnD projects.

The first part of this episode follows our Lead RnD Designer, Joe, and Engineers Mitja and Martin as they explain the wild ride that is the Uniblock Project.

Our Skunkworks team wanted to create a product that combines as much water cooling hardware as possible within a single unit – a pump, reservoir, CPU & GPU water block, M.2, RAM & VRM cooling, and all that without any tube connections. That is how the Uniblock came to be, and now you can watch its entire creation from beginning to end!

    Wow 😱😱

    This is a great idea, guys! Perhaps, you could design it, to have a back-up water pump. Like, design a port, so that an external water-pump can be bolted on, in case 1 pump goes out, for safety. That way, it never stops pumping. I really like this idea of cooling the whole mother-board. Even the VRM (voltage components) should be cooled! I am just thinking out-loud guys. You guys are the engineers. Stay motivated guys🔥

    I caint wait to order one

  5. Fernando Oliveira on January 18, 2023 at 3:16 am

    I’d buy that for sure

  6. Qrents Workshop on January 18, 2023 at 3:16 am

    Ok, let see, if we dont go about 12 degrees down against the air in all loop…

  7. CerN on January 18, 2023 at 3:17 am

    Exciting news! But what is up with the long delivery times, lots of items out of stock, and no response on emails?

  8. Gregory Ashby on January 18, 2023 at 3:18 am

    i got to have that…its too cool…this would take care of all the anxiety of leaks . this is a GREAT idea and it would sell.

  9. Sparkplug Barrens on January 18, 2023 at 3:20 am

    What a cliffhanger!! Great idea, looks like an awesome product, that I would absolutely buy. Really cool, for letting us see how this is developed. I am curious whether the rads are going to be connected with tubes!

    Hello EK team!!
    Amazing project!!
    I was wondering if you were planning to do a Asus extreme z790 ultrablock ? Thanks again!

  11. fischi meier on January 18, 2023 at 3:22 am

    ahh the Switzerland-playlist on 7:51 amazing. Proud moment right there.

  12. Dracconus on January 18, 2023 at 3:24 am

    @EK Water Blocks –
    Here’s an idea that should make this easier on your ROI, as well as on investors, and consumers:

    Make the GPU portion "hot-swappable so that anyone can use any gpu block they want (helpful if they have existing blocks), or the ones you assemble as a separate piece they can add onto their uniblock.
    By this I mean have the GPU block portion as a separate "add-on" that can be assembled into the main portion simply by using a male to male g1/4 adapter that you screw into both portions and then have the gpu block portion "layer" over the front of the uniblock for the motherboard.

    Enjoy 😉

    EK has a great quality but you guys lack in esthetics. Learn from Phanteks, Watercool. Their design is amazing.

  14. Toasty on January 18, 2023 at 3:26 am

    This is so cool. EK always does the coolest water cooling stuff.

  15. hicham lrazwani on January 18, 2023 at 3:26 am

    نحن ننتظر بفارغ الصبر كل ما لديكم من جديد حول مسقبل أجهزة الكمبيوتر 🥰🧡 شكرا EK Water Blocks

  16. General Grevous on January 18, 2023 at 3:28 am

    Really cool but prefer to keep my GPU and CPU on separate cooling loops. Not very keen on the GPU heating up coolant and pumping it into the CPU.

  17. Goran Stewart on January 18, 2023 at 3:28 am

    Exciting project. Looking forward to seeing the end result. Thank you for your hard work 👍🏻

  18. Daniel Williams on January 18, 2023 at 3:30 am

    Very nice!

  19. Justin Clark on January 18, 2023 at 3:30 am

    That looks so cool. can’t wait to see how it turns out

  20. Yuel Beast Designs on January 18, 2023 at 3:32 am

    Been waiting for this! Can’t wait to see what you guys create!

  21. Blez on January 18, 2023 at 3:33 am

    Sounds VERY cool

  22. DarthChewie on January 18, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Amazing concept!

  23. elZocko on January 18, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Can’t wait for episode 2 🙂
    For me 5 things on EKWB important 2023.
    1. Make also a AMD version of this like for the Asus Extreme X670E Motherboard.The upcoming 7000X3D CPUs are outstanding!
    2.The last 3 Generation off CPUs& GPUs Show us,they even hotter and hotter.So Direct Die Cooling is a must have for us all!
    3.Support for other Cases also example like the Lian Li O11 D XL EVO was is coming Q2.
    4. More cooperation with Roman Hartung aka Der8auer and thermal grizzly
    5. And please finally Precut Heatpads for all of ur products !!

  24. Robert Price on January 18, 2023 at 3:36 am

    This is absolutely amazing. The only downside is compatibility for different gpu etc. I have Asus Z790 Extreme paired with Asus Rog Strix 4090 and would want a Uniblock for these parts.
    Either way, good luck and hope to see full EK packages like this in the near future 👏

  25. Aaron Allen on January 18, 2023 at 3:37 am

    Awesome!!

  26. Creamworks on January 18, 2023 at 3:38 am

    this is madness. i love it!

  27. ICE Helion on January 18, 2023 at 3:39 am

    I would be interested if this uniblock is like a normal mainboard (vram and CPU) cooler and only compatible with with a specific mainboard a specific card from a specific board designer or will there be change and upgrade versions if you’d only would like to change your gpu? Or do you need to get a whole new uniblock? Cause if there would be the possibility to just get a new heat sink for the gpu or a new set for the mainboard and be able to change them and the board …. This would be so awesome !!!

  28. Kalver Stukas on January 18, 2023 at 3:40 am

    great, but all these monoblocks shall be able to adapt direct-die cooling. Otherwise it is not enthusiast enough..Also, it is better to have a sort of this uniblock as a distro-pate on top of standard water blocks with standardized layout of inlet-outlet ports , since it has to be upgradable somehow and not just one-time purchase ..

    Ek are top

  31. edlebrock350 on January 18, 2023 at 3:45 am

    So excited to see this assembled! I’ve only seen this concept done once before (bit-tech) and it was AMAZING, cant wait for the next video!! good job guys! Amazing work!

  32. Saf on January 18, 2023 at 3:45 am

    Are they teasing a PS5 block at the background there?

  33. Georg Siewert on January 18, 2023 at 3:47 am

    Soon TM on the white board at 15:00? A nod to Tarkov?

  35. jammes raven on January 18, 2023 at 3:47 am

    need lets go team !

  36. Swordix on January 18, 2023 at 3:47 am

    Looks amazing i think that is the future of water cooling. Keep the ward work so we can enjoy the good stuff you make 🙂

  37. Phenom Design on January 18, 2023 at 3:49 am

    Project look so cool i cant wait to see the episode 2. continue like that so cool.

  38. D1craigRob on January 18, 2023 at 3:50 am

    Why did you have to chose the one vendor that adds its own tax to every product they make ie. Any other aib gpu = £400, ASUS exact same gpu = £440.

  39. BecauseMerica on January 18, 2023 at 3:53 am

    Omg. Baller

  40. Riko Garza on January 18, 2023 at 3:54 am

    If I send you my msi superim liquid x will you make me a waterblock for my gpu?

  41. TolaGarf on January 18, 2023 at 3:58 am

    Here $$$ take my money LOL

  42. peter PETER on January 18, 2023 at 3:59 am

    Looks great but for the average user its overkill. Thats alot of water blocks in one peice, which is probably going to be very expensive im guessing over 1k plus. I would rather they find ways to lower prices of the current hardware they have and have more beginners kits available .

  43. Kindachi08 on January 18, 2023 at 4:00 am

    I’m looking forward to the next episode. Like others have mentioned, the ability to swap cold plates and user serviceability of the coolant channels for deep cleaning would give a product like this a long life.

    This looks to have good potential to combine with a showcase style chassis with triple radiators for high performance while saving some space.

    I do wonder if the market might prefer a design centered around the motherboard/CPU cooling while keeping all the PCIe slots open for use of horizontally mounted GPUs and add in cards. It could maybe be a more accessible version of what the Glacial blocks did. Maybe such a design could include ports that let you straight run Matrix7 blocks to the uniblock?

    Also, where’s my Phase fans at? 😂

  44. jake A on January 18, 2023 at 4:02 am

    Brodholm WING X99 & parvum x nvidia 1080ti pc comes to mind.

  45. kardus on January 18, 2023 at 4:02 am

    Looks nice, dreading what it would me like to add or swap nvme though 😓

  46. Eliad Buchnik on January 18, 2023 at 4:06 am

    very unique and interesting idea, the downside is – its meant for very specific hardware.

  47. dreamin47 on January 18, 2023 at 4:06 am

    Good you wont have to buy the motherboard like the Glacial Extreme, cant wait for compatiblity list.

  48. Simon Allen on January 18, 2023 at 4:07 am

    I noticed that EK used the previous 30 series GPU instead of the forty series GPU’s

  49. RENE NAVA on January 18, 2023 at 4:08 am

    Looks Amazing. Great EKWB🤩

  50. Carlos De Bernard on January 18, 2023 at 4:08 am

    nice work and looks nice. the idea is nice
