    EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear provider, officially introduces the EK-VGA Supremacy Bridge Edition water block, the successor of renown EK-VGA Supreme HF Bridge Edition GPU-only water block. EK-VGA Supremacy Bridge 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 designed specifically for the use with EK-FC Bridge Parallel CSQ interconnects in multiple graphics card system.

    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-Supremacy.

    The top is made of quality satin finish acrylic- or POM Acetal material (depending on the variant). Acrylic top variant water block top has a slot for easy installation of one 3mm LED diode.

    EK-VGA Supremacy series waterblocks supports majority of modern nVidia and AMD high-end graphics cards. Please check compatibility at EK's CoolingConfigurator. Graphics cards with the following square mouting holes pattern are supported:
    [*]min: 53x53mm
    [*]max: 58x58mm
    [/LIST]
    This product can be upgraded for further compatibility using additional mounting plates.

    EK-VGA Supremacy Bridge Edition is compatible with the following EK-FC Bridge CSQ interconnects only:
    • EK-FC Bridge SINGLE CSQ
    • EK-FC Bridge DUAL Parallel CSQ
    • EK-FC Bridge DUAL Parallel 3-Slot CSQ
    • EK-FC Bridge TRIPLE Parallel CSQ
    • EK-FC Bridge TRIPLE Z77 CSQ
    • EK-FC Bridge QUAD Semi-Parallel CSQ

    This bridge+universal block concept was already launched some yrs ago by EK themselves.

    I like it cause fullcover blocks are just a waste of copper when you swap GPUs.

    indeed :)
    perhaps people who already used full cover block for their gpu(s) trying to keep or use it for next 3-4 years except they've bunch of unlimited money and do upgrade of gpu(s) frequently. personally i prefer using full water block instead universal block because it's also cooling down gpu's vrm
