EK, the manufacturer of premium water-cooling gear, is introducing a pump-reservoir combo unit that doubles as a manifold. Say hello to the EK-Pro Pump Reservoir Manifold X6 D5 – Acetal, a game-changer in the world of custom water-cooling solutions.
What sets this unit apart is its impressive number of G1/4″ ports, allowing it to connect up to six water-cooling components simultaneously. Imagine having the power to cool two CPUs, two GPUs, and two radiators all in one sleek package. But that’s not all – it also features a dedicated fill port, a drain port with an optional Quick Disconnect Coupling (QDC), and a handy window for visually monitoring your coolant levels.
While the EK-Pro Pump Reservoir Manifold X6 D5 – Acetal may resemble a distribution plate, its functionality goes beyond that. It can be utilized as a regular pump-reservoir combo or even as a manifold, thanks to its unique design. The “X6” in its name signifies the six components it can directly connect, while the “D5” indicates the presence of a single D5 pump that efficiently circulates the liquid throughout your system.
Mounting this beauty is a breeze, thanks to the M4 screw threads on the opposite side of the ports and on the backside. With a bracket featuring 120 mm fan mounting hole spacing, you have plenty of options to find the perfect spot for your setup. Plus, with a whopping 14 G1/4″ ports available, including dedicated fill and drain ports, you have all the flexibility you need.
But let’s talk about power. The EK-Pro Pump Reservoir Manifold X6 D5 – Acetal comes with a genuine D5 pump that combines raw performance with whisper-quiet operation. This PWM-controlled pump has been upgraded with the latest G3 variant, ensuring exceptional reliability and outstanding performance. And to keep up with the industry trend, it features a SATA power connector, reducing the need for 4-pin Molex cables.
Draining your system has never been easier. This combo unit includes a drain port and a Quick Disconnect Coupling (QDC) along with tubing, allowing you to effortlessly drain your system directly from the case without any additional tools. While using the QDC is optional, it offers numerous quality-of-life benefits that are hard to resist.
When it comes to build materials, EK-Pro Pump Reservoir Manifold X6 D5 – Acetal doesn’t disappoint. The majority of the unit is crafted from durable Black POM acetal, complemented by a stainless steel plate that covers the front and features a sliver opening for the see-through acrylic window. The pump is securely held by a black-anodized aluminum holder, ensuring no contact between metals and coolant to prevent any risk of corrosion.
Let’s dive into the technical details. The dimensions of the reservoir with the attached pump or QDC are 75 x 115 x 235 mm. The powerful pump motor operates on a 12 V DC voltage, consuming 23 W of power. With a maximum pressure head of 3.9 m and a flow rate of 1500L/h, this pump is designed to handle demanding setups. It can withstand a maximum system temperature of 60°C, making it ideal for high-performance systems.
The EK-Pro Pump Reservoir Manifold X6 D5 – Acetal is available for pre-order now through the EK Webshop and their partner reseller network. Shipping is expected to begin in late December 2023. As for pricing, the manufacturer-suggested retail price (MSRP), including VAT, is set at €379.90.
In conclusion, EK has once again raised the bar in water-cooling innovation with the EK-Pro Pump Reservoir Manifold X6 D5 – Acetal. With its versatile functionality, robust build, and exceptional performance, it’s a must-have for enthusiasts seeking the ultimate cooling solution for their high-end systems.
About EK: EKWB, or EK Water Blocks, is a Slovenian company specializing in liquid cooling solutions for computers.

PWM: Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) is a type of technology used in the computer industry that allows for control over pulse and frequency. It works by modulating an output signal’s pulse width or duty cycle to vary the on and off times of the signal. This technology can be used to control and regulate different DC motor, lighting, and other devices. In the computer industry, PWM is often used to control the speed of CPU and GPU fan speeds for improved cooling. It is also used to control backlighting levels on devices such as keyboards or monitors. PWM is versatile, cost-effective, and efficient; as such, it is an important technology in the computer industry.
