    A sneak peak into EK-Ascendacy


    EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is excited to give you first glimpse of the upcoming EK-Ascendancy water cooling system control board which has been in development for the past 12 months. The unit is design to work in conjuction with EK-Ascendacy software interface for Microsoft® Windows® but can also operate in standalone mode.

    With three integrated presets and plethora of customized profiles this unit is capable of controlling your computer cooling system exactly as you want it. Powered by world renown CPUID monitoring library the EK-Ascendacy and it's Microsoft® Windows® based application is the ultimate solution for any avid computer water cooling enthusiast.

    Hardware features:
    - direct drain FET water cooled voltage regulation module (VRM)
    - up to 150W sustained power capable VRM
    - standard 6-pin PCI-Express power connector ensures
    - control a 4-pin molex / 3-pin DC (up to 40W) or 4-pin PWM capable water pump
    - control up to 8 4-pin PWM or 3-pin DC fans (15W each)
    - connect any industry standard flow meter (pulse sensing)
    - monitor up to 10 thermal probes (NTC thermistor)

    Software features:
    - Microsoft® Windows® based application
    - Modern, easy and intuitive user interface
    - Custom profile creation, editing and management - from fan hysteresis to flow meter pulse tuning
    - CPUID SDK support allows monitoring of all vital parameters of your computer
    - Logging function of all parameters

    The unit is now in validation phase where all potential flaws will be ironed out. EK will offer both full- as well as light 5.25" drive bay version without the front facing LCD and interface.

    The light version without the front facing LCD will be available by early March 2014, pricing is yet to be announced. It is worth noting this product is completely designed and - like nearly all EK Water Blocks products - manufactured in Slovenia, Europe!

    ahh...competition. Aquacomputer, Koolance and others are already have this type of hardware. The thing is, does it compatible with third party sensors?

    This will be interesting to see.. I've worked with the aqua computer stuff before, some of it can get complex depending on sensors your working with.. But when you get the software and hardware down to a Tee, it works really well..

    It will be nice to see what EK can do in this department..

    Software compatibility is have nothing to do with hardware compatibility. Most of monitoring unit doesn't compatible with other makers.

    Example; if you have a Koolance monitoring, you can not use with XSPC or other temp sensors...etc., this is the same with AquaComputer.

    The only I know is compatible with 3rd party part is mCubed T-Balancer.

    So you are looking for a true universal. Doubt EK will be the ones to do that. Just like the others didnt. Want you to buy their stuff. We will see.

    Yes, I prefer the flexibility rather to married to specific brand due to the availability in Canada. Yeah, I doubt they will make it compatible with other brands, they will make more sell if they don't.

    A universal would be killer. Don't care for being locked in either. That's why I'm care on which parts I pick for builds.
