EK Further Expands Its Fluid Gaming Portfolio

EK Water Blocks, the market leader in PC custom liquid cooling, is releasing additional aluminum water cooling parts for its new brand created for PC gamers called EK Fluid Gaming. Bringing the best price/performance ratio imaginable, EK Fluid Gaming is already becoming a number one choice for many gamers who want to join the ultimate liquid cooling club in the world!
Expansion packs and separate aluminum parts
By a popular demand, we are releasing the radiator expansion packs. EK-FG 120 Expansion Pack, EK-FG 240 Expansion Pack and EK-FG 360 Expansion Pack bring additional radiators, fans, and fittings for those who want to expand their existing Fluid Gaming kit or want to start with more radiator space from the beginning (140mm series radiators are coming later this year). With the release of the radiator expansion packs, we are also offering colored coolants, fittings and angled adapters for separate purchase. This brings, even more, customization options with every EK Fluid Gaming kit. Additionally, there are several other parts available to make your loop even more complete.

so the radiators and blocks are aluminum, how does the cooling compare to copper?

I asked their support team about Vega. Should be added to this line Oct. 1st.

Raw aluminum and water is not a good mix. Unless there are additives in the water.
Nothing wrong with that combination. The problem comes with mixed metals that are far enough away from each other in electrochemical potential.

The prices on these components are straight up ridiculous.

Copper is 4 times the price of Aluminum, and these components should reflect that cost...At their current costs, there's no reason to go for these kits with the pricing being the way it currently is.

It's what price cutting involves.

@DeathtoGnomes EK Fluid Gaming's A120, A240 & A240G includes a coolant in the package, which is basically distilled water, so I doubt the coolant will "eat" thru the metal that quickly unless you mixed with copper based blocks, which everyone knows that both metals will eat each other out, springing a leak into your system & turning your rig into a massive paperweight.

True enough and you can find all kinds of unseen junk in Tap water that if used will cause an issue eventually, so distilled treated and filtered it something I would want for coolant here.

Distilled water will still have some impurities, that means it will be later rather than sooner when the aluminum will start to break down. My guess is that it still will last longer than the warranty period.

The coolant included has the usual anti-microbial and anti-corrosive agents in it too. As long as you stick to aluminum only for metals that come in contact with the coolant, it'll be fine.

sticking to the included coolant they provided is the safest way to ensure longevity. Not sure about other vendors though, they may have different additives or not having at all, so it's sketchy if you use other brands.

Most brands do, but no point when this comes included with the kits already unless you want colored coolant.
