Product Information

EK-Quantum Kinetic TBE 160 DDC Body D-RGB is the freestanding, pumpless version of the newly released Kinetic TBE combination units in tubular design. This means that customers can upgrade their old DDC-based combination unit or use an existing DDC pump. These combination units are equipped with a total of six G1/4" connections, allowing the user to choose the optimum configuration for his liquid cooling circuit.

The CNC-machined black POM acetal plate is equipped with three G1/4" connections. One of the connections can be used with the supplied nickel-plated brass inner tube, which helps to prevent coolant splashing inside the tank when the attachment is used as an inlet. This reduces the likelihood of air being sucked in by the pump and the coolant also foaming. This tube cannot be used with an anti-vortex insert due to size restrictions.  Each of the three upper connections can also be used to fill the system or to add additional accessories (thermal probes, LEDs, etc.).

A further three industry standard G1/4" connectors are available in the lower combination housing, which is also made of CNC-machined black POM acetal. In addition to the input and output ports, it has a side port that can be used either as an optional inlet or outlet port. It is mounted by 4 columns on the bottom of the pump-container combination unit. The addressable LEDs are arranged in a ring which is directed towards the coolant. Unwanted hot spots of the D-RGB LED of the combination unit are covered by a CNC-milled aluminium part.

The tube with a diameter of 60 mm is made of high-quality acrylic material, as are the bottom and top of the reservoir, while the sealing is provided by a quality EPDM O-ring. Correct LED implementation is one of EK's main priorities to ensure that as few visible "LED hotspots" as possible are created.

The integrated addressable D-RGB is compatible with the common RGB synchronisation technologies of all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector must be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB header.

This reservoir can be easily upgraded with longer acrylic tubes used by the EK-RES X3 series reservoirs.

  • Diameter of the reservoir 60mm
  • Free volume of the reservoir: ~205mL
  • Total height of the unit: 160 mm
  • mounting hole pattern: 50x50mm
  • D-RGB connector standard 3-pole (+5V, digital, blocked, ground)
