Waku specialist EKWB has presented a new version of its EK-Quantum Reflection² PC-O11D XL D5 PWM D-RGB with an integrated screen at a hefty price.
As early as 2021, EKWB presented the special distribution plate as an all-in-one solution with an integrated D5 pump for the front of the Lian Li housing O11D XL at a price of over 300 euros, and now the “Screen Edition” is a new edition with an integrated 7 inch IPS display. This “EK-Quantum Lumen” screen has a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels and is designed as a second monitor to be able to display all kinds of content.
The connection to the PC is made via an included HDMI 2.0 cable and an internal Type A USB 2.0 port. The frame of the Lumen screen is CNC machined from a 20 millimeter thick piece of aluminum, 195 millimeters long and 115 millimeters.
Also on board is an addressable D-RGB LED strip that runs the full length of the device, while a black anodized aluminum cover hides the unwanted LED hotspots. The PWM-controlled D5 pump, meanwhile, has been updated with the latest G3 (Generation 3) variant, according to EKWB, and features a SATA power connector to accommodate the trend away from 4-pin Molex cables. There are six plug-in connections with G1/4″ internal thread adapters.
