EK releases their new MLC Phoenix Series of modular liquid cooling products

One of the biggest problems with custom water cooling is the fact the barrier to entry, offering a difficulty spike when compared to building a PC with a standard AIO liquid cooler or with an air-based heatsink design. Newcomers to PC building will feel uncomfortable introducing custom liquid cooling to their PC, as any loose fittings could spawn a leak and potential catastrophe.

EK has now created their new MLC Phoenix pre-filled liquid coolers to deliver their fans an easy entry point into the custom liquid cooling market. EK now offers pre-filled radiator/pump combo units, CPU Block and GPU liquid cooling units, each of which uses EK's proven quick-disconnect couplings to merge these modules into a custom liquid cooling loop.  

All of these units will use copper components and contains an EK-made coolant, removing the choice of coolant from the equation entirely, removing the need to choose a custom coolant and all the potential compatibility concerns associated with this decision. 

Radiator-wise, EK is offering 120mm, 240mm, 360mm, 140mm and 280mm options, all of which comes with a built-in pump. Adding an extra radiator into your system will also deliver additional pump power, making this system suitable for complex multi-rad configurations.

When it comes to CPU support, EK supports all major consumer sockets, offering a custom TR$/Threadripper Ready CPU module as well as an Intel/AM4 CPU module that supports LGA1150, LGA 1150, LGA 1151, LGA 1156, LGA 2011(-3) and AM4. 

With these new kits, EK is also offering extensive GPU support with 23 block options at launch, including blocks to AMD's RX Vega series of GPU and Nvidia's Founders Edition series of GPU. A list of available GPU block options can is available here

All of EK's MLC Phoenix series products come pre-assembled, with purchases being available through EK's new EK-MLC Configurator tool.

These look pretty good and would be good for beginners into the water cooling world, lets just hope they don't leak like one of their previous units did.Quote

Far too expensive. Configured one earlier. 360 rad module, CPU block and Titan XP block (skinny anaemic thing) $524.Quote

If the 120mm rad comes with pump atatched to it then I would pick one up (at work so have not checked ek site)

*edit*

138e for the 120mm rad version... depends what pump it is I might pick one up. Perfect for my ITX build.Quote

The problem with it is the hoses. There are no specific units. So for example you can't pick ITX, MATX, full ATX and so on. Meaning the hoses are going to be a set length "one for all" and thus you will have spaghetti in your ITX. It's worsened by the fact that the GPU and block are not G 1/4 (or at least don't look like it) so you can't cut the hoses I don't think.

I dunno. It's been proven time and time again that real water means real water. IE - you need to use fittings etc etc. They are trying to make some sort of boggy standard works for all kit which means it will be a Jack of all trades, master of none.Quote

I was quoted €391 for a radiator, pump, quick-disconnects, tubing, fans, CPU block, coolant, and GPU block. That's not bad. That's great performance for your GPU, decent performance for your CPU (a dedicated 280mm AIO would perform better or likely even big air), low noise (hopefully) and decent looks. I think that's not bad at all. You're saving quite a bit of money compared to a custom loop and it's less hassle than a kit. The kit would also be more expensive than the MLC Phoenix, but a kit would look better and offer more options for only slightly more money.Quote
