Although custom liquid cooling loops have been commonplace for some time, the addition of liquid distribution plates has become popular recently. EKWB has just announced a new distribution plate designed for the popular custom cooling chassis, the Lian Li PC-011D.
EK has added a new liquid cooling distribution plate to its Classic line of products. The EK-Classic DP Front PC-O11D D-RGB + SPC PWM is designed to provide a comprehensive cooling solution for one of the most popular custom liquid cooling cases available, the Lian Li PC-011D. According to EK, the new product offers an affordable solution and incredible aesthetics with its budget-conscious SPC pump and simplistic design.
Front-mounted distribution plates offer PC liquid cooling beginners a simple approach to the build process, as they require users to make less bends and provide an all-in-one solution with an integrated pump and reservoir. The EK-Classic DP Front PC-O11D D-RGB + SPC PWM distribution plate is designed to be mounted in the front of the Lian Li PC-011D.
