Following the success of EK-AIO D-RGB that comes in three different sizes and EK-AIO Elite with the push-pull configuration, the new EK-AIO Basic now creates a balance in the EK’s AIO portfolio by offering a price-competitive, all-black, non-RGB option.
The second EK-AIO product making its debut is the Special Edition EK-AIO Elite Aurum – a golden variant of the popular EK-AIO Elite. It boasts a glossy, gold-like nickel finish on the pump cover and fittings for those who want their PCs to sparkle.
The EK-AIO Basic is available in 240 and 360mm radiator models. These are all-black all-in-one liquid cooling solutions for modern AMD® and Intel® CPUs. Visually, EK-AIO Basic is minimalistic with a black brushed aluminum-like pump cover and black fans. These performance-focused AIOs offer all the benefits of a water-cooling solution in a compact, easy to install, and maintenance-free design. They are simple, efficient, and come without any RGB lighting. By keeping the aesthetics minimal, EK-AIO Basic can be more competitive price-wise than the pioneering trio with D-RGB implementation.
As the name suggests, this AIO version takes us back to the basics but doesn’t lack in performance. The EK-AIO Basic is here to take the initiative among EK’s mainstream liquid cooling solutions, spearheaded by already-successful, chart-topping, EK-AIO D-RGB models.
To top everything off, EK is also introducing the unapologetic, attention-seeking EK-AIO Elite Aurum 360 D-RGB. The colossal six-fan setup is not only chunky in size and consequently in performance but also stands out with the limited edition, glossy, golden pump cover with a D-RGB lit EK badge and diamond-cut rotary fittings.
The Elite Aurum is here and ready to provide ample cooling power even for the toughest processors on the market. Whether you are into heavy overclocking or wish to have a silent PC, the 360mm radiator combined with six Vardar fans can provide both simultaneously. The EK-Hub was added to help with the cable management, offering multi-connection with up to seven sets of addressable RGB and PWM headers.
Both AIO Basic and Elite Aurum made their video debuts at the EK EXPO Media Day, and you can see them in the immersive 360 Showroom.
