    EK Water Blocks, premium computer water cooling gear provider, has released a refreshed line-up of the best value-for-money series water block - the EK-Supreme LTX.

    EK-Supreme LTX CSQ (LTX stands for Light XTreme) is a universal Intel socket CPU waterblock for the advanced enthusiast users. It has been designed to lower the production costs yet still offer the EK quality branded CPU waterblock at the best price.

    EK-Supreme LTX CSQ is a successor of successful EK-Supreme LT which debuted in 2007. It's main improvements are:
    - better flow: due to improved channel depth design up to 10% higher flow compared to EK-Supreme LT
    - better cooling performance

    The EK-Supreme LTX CSQ cooling engine uses fin design. The water (coolant) accelerates through 46 very thin channels which provide extreme cooling surface area. Very thin copper base bottom wall even further improves cooling performance.

    The base plate is made of electrolytic copper lapped and polished to +/- 0.0007mm flatness. The top is made of quality cast, satin finished acrylic material.

    At least the fittings line up with the silly circles on this model. I much prefer the looks of my Supreme HF Cu to any of these.

    Nice. These look a million times better than the previous models with the circles all willy nilly.

    I think that EK's factory has been conquered by aliens and the personnel has been probed to insanity.
    That is the only explanation to dem crop circles.

    Am I the only person that does not get why noone seems to like those circles? I think all the latest EK water blocks with this design look great.

    ProTip Eddy; You wanna reduce production costs? GET RID OF THOSE DAMN CIRCLES!!

    They make your product look childish IMO and they increase tooltime/toolwear...

    Pass the savings along to your customers :cool:

    Not your latest Acid/crop circle trip induced design ideas...

    They just don't fit PCs, you have to theme your PC to make them fit.

    They are a bloody punch in the eye to watch on a completed build.

    I don't mind the circles to be honest. I think it looks sharp. Modern.

    how does it not fit a computer. Computers have circles all over. The motherboard caps are circular, fans are circular, etc., etc.

    It looks ok when they are all uniform and lined up, and not full on circled. Too bad they are LT series.

    Look at all this moaning about the circles...
    I for one wouldn't care if it had a Hello Kitty carved on the top if it performed well.

    No circles, or hello kitties

    The circles are bad enough. Don't tell their marketing people to put hello kitties on it too.

    Why settle when you can have both, performance and looks.

    Well, I think the block looks better with the circles than if it was blank.
    But I really don't care what computer parts look.
