EKWB Releases CoolStream PE-Series Water Cool Radiators

EKWB has introduced a new series of radiators: the EK-Coolstream PE series. This new series of water cooling radiators have a couple of changes from previous revisions, all of which are highly welcomed.

For starters, the radiators have a new design. Matching the rest of the EKWB CSQ, the radiators now have a minimalistic and sleek appearance.
As is almost always the case, the radiators are built for use with 120 mm fans, and come in versions with room for up to four of them. Both sides of the radiators also feature UNC 6-32 threads, allowing fans to be mounted in a push-pull configuration if desired.

The radiators are 40 mm thick. They feature a double stack of copper fins, and the coolant flow channels run in parallel for reduced resistance, thus requiring less powerful pumps in simple configurations. One end of the radiators features two G1/4" threads, along with pre-installed extenders, allowing practically any G1/4" fittings to be installed for a wide variety of tubing options.

EKWB has already listed the radiators on its webshop, and they sell for MSRPs of $49.73, $67.25, $84.74, and $100.89 for the EK-CoolStream PE 120, 240, 360, and 480, respectively.

    Shame there isn't any supporting 140 mm fans.

    I thought radiators were pretty minimalist to begin with, but they sure did take it a step further. The design is minimalist, but from the photos (in their webshop), that's the most writing I've ever seen crammed onto a rad.

    I don't even know if it already exists, but I'd like to see an option for the fittings to be placed 1 on each side, diagonally across from one another.

    @clonazepam, try checking FrozenCPU.com and look at the Hardware Labs Black Ice X-Flow series. I have a couple in 3x120 and 2x120, and they work well.

    Wow too much effort to click on a link.
    They have rads that support 140mm fans.
    'that's the most writing I've ever seen crammed onto a rad.' Really?
    Time to cut back on the Valium.

    Come on guys this isn't an AOL chat room, it's a tech site.
