EK Water Blocks announces two XLC Predator AiO liquid CPU coolers

With 140mm and 280mm radiators

Following the success of its earlier released XLC Predator AIO liquid CPU coolers, EK Water Blocks has now announced two new models that will be coming with 140mm and 280mm radiators, Quick Disconnect Connector and new 140mm EK-Vardar fan(s), the EK-XLC Predator 140 and EK-XLC Predator 280.

Unlike most AiO liquid CPU coolers on the market which place the pump on top of the water block, the EK-XLC Predator integrates the reservoir and the pump with the radiator.

According to details provided by EK Water Blocks, the EK-XLC Predator 280 features a well-known EK-Supremacy MX CPU water block and comes with the new EK-CoolStream CE 280 radiator, coupled with two high-static pressure 140mm EK-Vardar fans. The radiator also comes with EKWB's Hovercore design which prevents the transfer of vibrations from the radiator as well as integrates EK-SPC liquid cooling pump. 

The radiator was also further re-designed to hide all the cables, which are attached to an integrated fan splitter hub with only one PWM cable going to the CPU fan socket and single SATA Molex that powers the entire unit. The EK-SPC liquid cooling pump is PWM controlled and has a maximum pressure head at 3.2m (10,5 ft) with a maximum flow of 450 L/h.

The  EK-XLC Predator 280 and EK-XLC Predator 140 also feature EKWB's Quick Disconnect Connector (QDC), which allows a quick and tool-less expansion of the system without the need to drain the unit.

The EK-XLC Predator 140 is identical to the 280 model apart from the smaller 140 EK-CoolStream CE radiator. While the EK-XLC Predator 280 comes with QDC, the EK-XLC Predator 140 will be available with and without the QDC and is mostly aimed at smaller mini-ITX builds.

According to EKWB, both new EK-XLC Predator AiO liquid CPU coolers will be available for pre-order on September 9th and available worldwide on September 30th. Unfortunately, EKWB still hasn't finalized the price but that information should be available in the coming weeks.
