    EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to officially release the EK-VGA Supremacy HWBOT Edition, the first fruit of the collaboration between EK Water Blocks and HWBOT. EK-VGA Supremacy HWBOT Edition is a highest performance universal GPU water block built off EK-Supremacy cooling engine. It is a special edition of world-renown EK-VGA Supremacy waterblock featuring 100% metal construction.

    EK-VGA Supremacy is a direct successor of the world renown EK-VGA Supreme HF waterblock launched in 2010. It's main improvements are:
    • Better flow: due to improved design up to 20% higher flow compared to EK-VGA Supreme HF
    • Better cooling performance: up to 2°C lower GPU temperatures

    The EK-VGA 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-VGA Supremacy.

    The top is made of preciselly milled brass, coated in nickel plated finish. Full metal construction allows for use in very low temperature chilled liquid cooling systems.

    Ljubljana is a capital city of Slovenia :) It's kinda difficult to pronounce for all the non Slavic languages because of all the "lj" and "j" in it. But most don't have problems anymore once they hear someone saying it...
