EK Reveals A Monoblock For The PlayStation 5, EK-QuantumX CoolingStation Monoblock

Today EK has revealed a more niche and unique product in the form of a monoblock for the PlayStation 5 console. This monoblock provides an enhanced cooling solution for the PS5 for those who desire something a bit different.

EK-QuantumX Cooling Station Monoblock For PS5

This new monoblock has been designed to cover the entire PS5 PCB and cools all of the critical components on both the front and back providing a more effective and quiet cooling solution at the cost of complexity and literal cost. The block offers a stylish and sleek design with mesmerizing RGB LEDs and is crafted using state-of-the-art CNC machining techniques. It is constructed from nickel-plated electrolytic copper with a see-through acrylic window and then uses stainless steel and aluminium for the other assembly and cosmetic pieces. For connecting to a loop it features two G1/4 ports

Additional Required Components

Of course, a monoblock also requires all the other components to make a full loop which includes a pump, radiator, fittings, tubes and a standard ATX power supply. The power supply is required for the water-cooling equipment and connects to the PS5 through a PCB converter on the block that converts the 2-pin DC power connector on the PS5 to dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors on the PSU. You also need a case to house all of this equipment to which the monoblock can be mounted to standard ATX standoffs.

This monoblock costs €449.90 which is already just under the cost of the PS5 itself, then adding on all of this other equipment you’re going to be set back a lot just for a unique water-cooled PS5 that sits in a PC case. Who is actually going to buy this?
