EK introduces its new flagship waterblock

Posted on Wednesday, August 27 2014 @ 13:11:58 CEST by


EK Waterblocks delivers the EK-Supremacy EVO, the company's new flagship waterblocks. The firm promises the new very high-flow design will deliver unmatched thermal performance. On its website, EK claims you can get an enhancement of more than 2.2°C on most popular LGA1150 and LGA2011 processors compared with the Supremacy waterblock. Prices start at 62.95EUR.
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the successor to EK-Supremacy flagship performance universal CPU water block.

EK-Supremacy EVO is an evolution of a EK-Supremacy flagship performance water block, introduced in 2012. More than one year worth of round-clock development, CFD analysis and rigorous testing is now resulting in ultimate performance, unmatched by any other product on the market.

"One of the key performance improvements is closely related with flow velocity field distribution optimization through the nozzle of the water block", said Vlado Schweiger, chief hydrodynamic engineer at EK Water Blocks.

EK-Supremacy EVO is a universal CPU water block that fits all modern CPU sockets with a universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation. The result is a perfect installation which results in optimal performance every time. EK-Supremacy EVO is truly the only product for performance seeking enthusiasts. The key features are:

- unmatched thermal performance - more than 2.2°C better performance on most popular LGA-1150 & LGA-2011 processors.
- very high-flow design - low hydraulic restricion allows this product to be used in setups using weaker water pumps.
- modular design - using various inserts and jets the performance can be further fine-tuned to unleash maximum performance by ensuring the optimal contact with the CPU integrated heat spreader (IHS).

"The key to optimal heat transfer is to ensure best possible mechanical contact between CPU and water block surface", said Niko Tivadar, Product Manager at EK Water Blocks. "We have achieved this by employing interchangeable inserts and jet plates. Getting those just right was a project on it's own".

The EK-Supremacy EVO uses the same cooling engine as it's predecessor. The cooling liquid accelerates through jet plate's nozzle and turbulently continues its path through numerous very thin channels, which provide extreme heat dissipating surface area. Specifically designed and carefully machined copper base (sometimes referred to as ‘cold plate’) is made from purest copper available on the market and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of EK-Supremacy EVO. To top it off this CPU water block comes with Gelid GC-Extreme premium performance thermal compound. It just doesn't get much better than this!

The top is made from either CNC machined acrylic glass, POM Acetal or Brass (depending on the variant) while the insert is made from injection moulded (M)ABS polymer. Plexi top variants have two slots for easy installation of 3mm LED diodes.

CPU socket compatibility:
- Intel LGA-775
- Intel LGA-1150/1155/1156
- Intel LGA-1366
- Intel LGA-2011
- AMD Sockets: 939, 754, 940
- AMD Sockets: AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+,FM2, FM2+

Enclosed:
- EK-Supremacy EVO series water block
- EK-Supremacy EVO PreciseMount mounting mechanism
- EK-Supremacy Backplate system (Intel LGA-1366 & AMD AMx Backplate; Intel LGA-115x Backplate ; rubber gasket)
- Additional AMD Socket mounting plate
- TIM / thermal grease: Gelid GC-Extreme (EKWB 1.5g)

Made in Slovenia - Europe!
