Want to add something custom to your gaming PC? Perhaps EK's new in-case IPS display is something for you
A lot of recent PC products have been following the LCD trend, adding an LCD or OLED panel to existing PC products to give their users additional customisation options, or areas where they can look at their PC's thermals and other data points. So far, we have seen this trend impact the designs of CPU cooler, graphics cards, and some motherboards. Now, EK wants to take things to the next level by releasing their 7-inch Quantum Lumen LCD in-case PC screen.
The idea here is simple, EK has built a 7-inch 1024x600 IPS monitor that has a strong aluminium frame and HDMI 2.0 connectivity. Users of this screen mount it inside of their PC or use it as an external display, allowing users to display whatever they want on it. Do you want it to display your system's thermals? Do you want it to play a video? Do you want to use it as a dedicated MSI Afterburner screen? Ultimately, it's up to you. 0
With a price tag of €135.90, EK's new Quantum Lumen display is an expensive add-on, so much so that it makes us wonder why EK hasn't also created a cheaper option with a plastic housing as an alternative to its premium Aluminium design. €135.90 is a lot of money for a small sub-1080p monitor.
More information about EK's new Quantum Lumen LCD screen is available below within EK's official Press Release.
Press Release - ADD ANOTHER DIMENSION TO YOUR PC WITH NEWLY-RELEASED EK-QUANTUM LUMEN DISPLAY
EK, the Slovenia-based premium PC liquid cooling gear manufacturer, launches its first external screen for PC enthusiasts - EK-Quantum Lumen 7" LCD. This Quantum series 7-inch screen is a stylish and functional addition to any liquid cooling setup. The display is recognized as an additional desktop by your OS, offering a handy way of displaying any content your want or monitoring the computer's vital parameters like component and coolant temperatures, fan RPM, core frequency, and more.
This is a high-quality IPS screen designed to be mounted inside the PC case or to be used as an external monitor for temperature, hardware load, and other information. It has a wide SVGA resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Its diagonal is 7 inches long, with the IPS panel type for superior viewing angles and vivid colors. It connects to the PC through HDMI 2.0 cable that is included in the package and an internal Type-A USB 2.0 port. Another USB Type-C cable is also included for using Lumen as an external display.
Just like all other EK Quantum products, this one also boasts a sophisticated design with the screen frame machined from a single piece of aluminium which is then plated for three material finish options - nickel, black, and silver.
Groves and notches are strategically placed on the back side of the screen to hide the cables and ease the cable management, thus creating its sleek look and feel. The frame of Lumen is CNC-machined out of a single large chunk of 20 mm-thick aluminium that is 195 mm long and 115 mm wide.
The sturdy aluminium frame offers three mounting positions with hole spacing aligned with 120 mm fans. This allows the screen to be moved up and down or centered, depending on your preference, while ensuring a high degree of compatibility with most modern cases. EK-Quantum Lumen can also be mounted on EK-Loop Angled Bracket 120 mm to allow 90-degree rotation and additional positioning options.
With a width of 192 mm and a height of 112 mm, it has the perfect size not to outshine the rest of your PC and still adds a pretty big surface for relevant data or special aesthetic effects. There are three versions available, relating to the color of the aluminium frame.
