It's merely a possibility that EK will be developing a new one This specific one will surely not be sold separately.

Speak of the devil haha

Guess I misunderstood the hint, good to know there may be something in the works. Hopefully it will accommodate a D5 pump

Perfect for someone that can build a PC, can't build a loop, wants water cooling but doesn't care about thermals or performance. If you put parts in this thing the $500 could have been spent on better parts until you get up into the 9900k/2080ti range. And I doubt the thermals are going to be great on that combination running on the equivalent of a 360mm AIO. But it's hardline water cooling and has RGB which are the two most important things when building a PC.

Is this seriously a pre-made hardline water cooled case for $500 with a weak pump and an aluminum 360...or am I missing something? Tell me I'm missing something.

You aren't missing anything. EK just looooooves suckering the uninformed out of their cash....

BTW- "wants water cooling but doesn't care about thermals or performance" made me spit coffee on my keyboard, but is sadly somehow factual.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

The problem I saw first hand when looking at the PowerSpec PC-011DX in the store is the front reservoir prevented you from installing a second rad in the side location of the PC-011D case, the res is just deep enough that you cannot fit a 120mm wide rad there. I tried to fit an EK SE120 and it simply would not fit, so you are truly limited to adding a 240mm or 280mm on the bottom and then plumbing it to the loop.

Sorry to come off as anti-water because I do like real water cooling but there are times it really doesn't make any sense. If you can't outperform air at least on thermals I really don't see the point.

Adding things to the loop isn't part of the plan as I see it. If you can add a rad you can build a loop and if you can build a loop you don't need this kit. When building a loop for a higher end CPU and GPU a 360 and a 240 are really where you want to be so you can get up to safe vcore on the CPU and the GPU can be OCd without loosing boost. If you aren't doing either if those things but you want an RGB loop anyway...I'm sorry but I see you as the kind of person that puts a wing and body kit on a Neon.

This could have been done well but they went for the middle and I'm sorry but $500 is a terrible deal for AIO thermals. I know the thermals are as such because this is the second time around. It seems like they took the loop in a box and added hardline in a case so that's what I'm basing the perfomance on.

And you'd have to buy a Aluminum version vs the Copper you were going to install as it would cause issues

You're right, this could have been done well. But it wasn't. They didn't even go middle, they went absolute bottom of the barrel (short of buying aluminum parts from China and using a pump meant for fish tanks) and charged a premium for it.

By middle I ment price lol.
I feel like it should have a D5 and a thick copper rad for the price. Look how much space they had for an obnoxiously thick rad! The way the thing is laid out now I wouldn't doubt that they're making about $350 off each one. China doesn't charge hardly anything for stuff like the copper jet plates and acrylic to make the blocks. This sounds like an exaggeration but I have a good idea what these things cost in bulk:
A copper or plated GPU block probably costs about $10 to make and ship to the US (it could easily be a lot less). Scale that logic across the whole thing and it really seems like a rip off lol.
