    EK Water Blocks, premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the new, Clean CSQ design EK-Supremacy flagship performance universal CPU water block. Same great performance in a refreshed new outfit! These long awaited newcomes are the direct result of EK Thinkcell - collaboration between water cooling community and EK Water Blocks.

    EK-Supremacy is a result of round clock development, years of experience and rigorous testing. As a new EK flagship this product again combines top hydraulic and thermal performance. It is an universal CPU water block that fits all modern CPU sockets and comes with an universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation. The result is a perfect installation which results in perfect performance every time. EK-Supremacy is truly the best product for performance seeking enthusiasts.

    EK-Supremacy is a successor of the legendary EK-Supreme HF water block launched in 2010. Its main improvements are:
    • Better hydraulic performance: due to improved design up to 20% higher flow compared to EK-Supreme HF
    • Better cooling performance: up to 2°C lower CPU temperatures compared to EK-Supreme HF
    The EK-Supremacy cooling engine uses similar, yet refined as per needs of modern microprocessors, fin design as its ancestor. The cooling liquid accelerates through jet plate's nozzle and turbulently continues its path through numerous very thin channels which provide extreme cooling 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.

    EK-Supremacy is also the first CPU water block on the market which has been optimized for every modern CPU platform independently with the use of different type of jet plates to ensure the best contact with the CPU integrated heat spreader (IHS). These jet plates of different shape and thickness are enclosed with the product.

    The new, Clean CSQ variants of EK-Supremacy - again - come in four different flavours (Copper Plexi, Copper Acetal, Nickel Plexi, Nickel Acetal) and are readily available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. Please note that these products will not replace the original EK-Supremacy series water blocks which will remain in production.

    Existing EK-Supremacy users will also be able to purchase a replacement POM Acetal or Acrylic Clean CSQ water block top (MSRP 14.95€ incl. VAT) in order to achieve the very same refreshed look.

    Cool that they listened to all the peoples' demands, but personally i really liked the circles on their blocks... if you use cpu, ram and mobo watercooling from EK with circles it looks cool i think. Best part is you can buy the top replacement only if u want.

    Circles were UGLY!... so glad they removed them... now is that sticker removable? no need for a sticker. I am pretty sure if you know the block you know the brand, sticker isn't going to help someone that doesn't already know.

    I like plain/clean. sorry just never thought adding circles to a block was "cool" or flashy.

    It is a branding thing... i almost get that, but I can spot a EK block with or without the ugly circles or logos all over the blocks

    I actually thought after a while the circles added a bit of class to the blocks. Ill most likely end up getting the circled Full Nickel block later this month, like I originally planned.

    EK has adapted product for a long time whining that we want as big as possible throughput. (Flow). Course, not guilty only CPU cooler, as elsewhere, the liquid can be kept with too small grooves or pipes, radiators and a good pump or two is needed. What seems to matter is unlikely to change. Two LEDs illuminate some of the side panel in the desired color. You could say that everything else on us. Moddeng. Ty EK.
