ADD ANOTHER DIMENSION TO YOUR PC WITH NEWLY-RELEASED EK-QUANTUM LUMEN DISPLAY

EK, the Slovenia-based premium PC liquid cooling gear manufacturer, launches its first external screen for PC enthusiasts – EK-Quantum Lumen 7″ LCD. This Quantum series 7-inch screen is a stylish and functional addition to any liquid cooling setup. The display is recognized as an additional desktop by your OS, offering a handy way of displaying any content your want or monitoring the computer’s vital parameters like component and coolant temperatures, fan RPM, core frequency, and more.

EK-Quantum Lumen 7″ LCD

This is a high-quality IPS screen designed to be mounted inside the PC case or to be used as an external monitor for temperature, hardware load, and other information. It has a wide SVGA resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Its diagonal is 7 inches long, with the IPS panel type for superior viewing angles and vivid colors. It connects to the PC through HDMI 2.0 cable that is included in the package and an internal Type-A USB 2.0 port. Another USB Type-C cable is also included for using Lumen as an external display.

Just like all other EK Quantum products, this one also boasts a sophisticated design with the screen frame machined from a single piece of aluminum which is then plated for three material finish options – nickel, black, and silver.

Groves and notches are strategically placed on the back side of the screen to hide the cables and ease the cable management, thus creating its sleek look and feel. The frame of Lumen is CNC-machined out of a single large chunk of 20mm-thick aluminum that is 195mm long and 115mm wide.

The sturdy aluminum frame offers three mounting positions with hole spacing aligned with 120mm fans. This allows the screen to be moved up and down or centered, depending on your preference, while ensuring a high degree of compatibility with most modern cases. EK-Quantum Lumen can also be mounted on EK-Loop Angled Bracket 120mm to allow 90-degree rotation and additional positioning options.

With a width of 192mm and a height of 112mm, it has the perfect size not to outshine the rest of your PC and still adds a pretty big surface for relevant data or special aesthetic effects. There are three versions available, relating to the color of the aluminum frame.

Nickel
Black
Silver

EK-Quantum Lumen 7″ LCD is engineered in Slovenia, Europe, with Black and Silver variants now available for purchase through EK Webshop and partner reseller network. The Nickel version is available for pre-order and will ship out in early September 2022.

  1. External? Why, was there ever an internal display?

    BTW, I didn't even know EK is based in Slovenia, that's just up the road from me.
    I actually would love one that takes up 3 5 1/4" bays or something.

    Are there even cases available now that has any external drive bays? Maybe budget cases that hasn't been retooled since the last millennium?

    Yeah not so much - not like the older cases tho.

    Although now we have video cards and PSUs and AIO cooler blocks that all have tiny OLED screens. They aren't terribly useful tho
