EK-Classic Kits
EK®, the premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is updating EK-Classic Kits by rolling out a special Black Nickel Edition, and that’s not where the magic ends. These new, special edition, Classic kits are available for the same price as the previous Classic kits, even though there are now more fittings included!

STC 10/13 Fittings Finish Nickel Black Nickel EK-Classic-Kit---Flat-lay---S240-D-RGB_Black_Nickel EK-Classic Kit Components:
EK-Classic CPU Water Block 115x/20xx/AM4 D-RGB – a high-end, nickel-plated copper CPU water block for modern Intel® and AMD® processors. It uses addressable RGB LEDs to light up your CPU area. It features a classic, market-proven design that will perfectly fit the needs of enthusiasts and demanding users. The tool-less mounting system makes the installation process a breeze even for beginners. This block comes with a pre-installed Intel mounting system while the AMD AM4 mounting system is in the packaging and needs to be installed if needed.

EK-CoolStream Classic SE & PE Radiators – offer great cooling capacity and compatibility with a great variety of modern cases. Built for EK-Vardar 120mm high static pressure fans, these radiators are optimized for maximum heat dissipation across the entire fan operational range, thus delivering exceptional performance at both low- and high-airflow operations.

EK-Vardar S 120ER D-RGB (500-2200rpm) – high-static pressure computer cooling fan, enriched by addressable RGB LEDs, and designed and built primarily for highest-performance computer liquid cooling systems. EK-Vardar is simply the best choice for computer radiator cooling as it provides unmatched performance throughout the entire operational range.

EK-Classic Pump Reservoir 160 SPC PWM D-RGB – a value-oriented water cooling pump-reservoir combo. It has been designed to lower the production costs yet still offer premium hydraulic performance at the best price. PWM control allows for automatic pump speed regulation depending on your CPU temperature. You get full performance on demand or whisper-quiet operation in idle mode, plus the rich D-RGB illumination. It comes with both vertical and horizontal mounting kits.

EK-STC Classic 10/13 – Black Nickel-Plated Brass Fittings – aesthetically appealing and secure option for your custom loop liquid cooling system, offering an immediate GPU expansion if needed. They boast a non-intrusive, high-quality finish and minimalistic look, with NO added branding at all.

EK-CryoFuel Clear – a specially designed additive for computer liquid cooling systems. It comes in a weight-saving 100mL concentrated form, which needs to be diluted with 900mL of distilled water (not included). The diluted liquid forms a stable, non-toxic mixture for your liquid cooling loop and contains all the necessary corrosion, scale, and biological growth inhibitors.

EK-DuraClear – two meters of EK-DuraClear 9.5mm (3/8?) or 15.9mm (5/8?) premium-quality transparent PVC tubing with long-lasting clarity.

EK-D-RGB 6-Way Splitter Cable – enables you to connect up to six D-RGB products to a single source header. Be it on the motherboard or the D-RGB controller of your choice.

EK-AF Classic Angled 90° – Black Nickel-Plated brass angled adapters – one of the most useful tools to have. They benefit every build by making a troublesome tube route easy and more aesthetically pleasing.

EK-Loop Soft Tube Cutter – a simple tool used to make a straight tube cut. Safe and easy to use.

EK-D-RGB 6-Way Splitter Cable – enables you to connect up to 6 D-RGB products to a single source header. Be it on the motherboard or the D-RGB controller of your choice.

Foldable Filling Bottle – very convenient for mixing the EK-CryoFuel concentrates with distilled water. The telescopic tube of the filling bottle can reach even the most remote and crammed fill ports.

EK-Loop Multi Allen Key – a multi-purpose tool that replaces the standard 6mm, 8mm, and 9mm Allen key, while it can also be used to operate acetal plugs (with the line style groove). The key does not only replace all of the crucial Allen key formats used for building a liquid-cooled PC but also helps protect your liquid cooling gear.

Reservoir Tube Clamp & Versatile Combo Bracket – these pieces feature several mounting options for your pump-reservoir combo, offering many ways to fit it perfectly inside your case.

The Best Solution for a Quick and Simple Start
The majority of components are pre-assembled, resulting in a quick and painless installation procedure. Once installed, these kits are a full custom loop solution. They can be upgraded with additional water blocks – for example, GPU water blocks and components, such as additional radiators. If you are cooling your rig with air and dreaming about liquid cooling, these kits will make your transition to the elite liquid cooling club as easy as possible!

Classic Series kits are compatible with the following CPU sockets:
– Intel LGA-1200
– Intel LGA-1150/1151/1155/1156
