EK has released a nev version of their EK-XLC Predator 240 all in one water cooling units with a Quick Disconnect for easy expansion to a CPU + GPU water cooling loop.

This design change has been made due to the demand by the water cooling community and also comes with version 1.1 of their CPU block mounts, allowing for greater socket compatibility, making the install process easier. 

 

  Since the launch of the Predator lineup, there was a huge demand for the EK-XLC Predator 240 with Quick Disconnects. EK listened to the community and is releasing the product today – with pre-filled GPU water blocks, readily available for purchase, gamers and enthusiasts can now build a complete liquid cooling system, including their CPU and GPU in the same loop!

This cooler comes pre-assembled by EK and utilizes the market proven Laing DDC pump and EK’s Vardar series 120mm fans, giving this unit minimal noise and full PWM control.

Below are results from EK’s intermal testing using an overclocked Intel i7 5960K and an overclocked GTX Titan X, showing how high the temperatures of each part is under load at various fan speeds.  

 

  We have tested the Predator 240 under extreme conditions, with Intel® Core® i7 5960X (2011-3 socket) running at 4.0 GHz (1.20V) and overclocked NVIDIA® Titan X. The graphics card was connected using QDC and under full load, the system was dissipating a whopping 550W of heat! In the graph below you can see the thermal results at the different fan speeds.

It is great to see this unit get updated to include a better mounting system with wider compatibility and get more expand-ability options through the addition of it’s quick disconnects, but the unit is still one of the most expensive AIO water cooling units on the market.
