Me neither. Seems someone got some inspiration while gazing at their wooden workbench after a session with a holepunch. Could be worse, the circles could be smiley's...EKWB Supremacy Embarrassment Edition :eek: :eek: :eek:

Not really I wouldn't think. There's about a 2-3°C (and that's being generous) variance between the top CPU blocks (Koolance CPU-370, RayStorm, Apogee HD, DD-M6 etc.). Bigger consideration would be flow restriction -matching the block with the loop ,heat dissipation qualities of the rad(s), and block mounting (ease of fitting and conflicts with some boards' capacitor height/placement).

Its all over the net. People hate those circles. Some holes are not aligned to the circle and makes it look unsymmetrical.

Yeah since the first of these circles showed up it's been nothing but constant complaints. Haven't seen a single positive comment. So why are they still charging ahead? Yet another company unable or unwilling to listen to consumers? Seems so.

The circles look good. There, ruined your whole argument.

Looking at the pics, all I can see is :-( in the second one.

The circles don't bother me a ton, but they should have at least made both ports line up on a circle it looks dumb.

I'm using a black top EK Supremacy. Block works good, comes with very good mounting hardware and it works great. Looks aren't its strong point I guess.. I don't really care about looks. Maybe I can glue some glitter or rhinestones on it.

What'd you do with erocker? Imma calling the FBI.



BTW, what way you got that block mounted? got a pic?


Nevermind it's off-topic, but a post in the mypcatm would be nice! ;)


I needs me a new block..got rands, pump, but no block for current sockets. The only thing I do nto like about htis block is that indigo extreme being sized for each socket, but I'm pretty sure the block is universal?


Did you get an AMD mount with your earlier version?

Problem is EK is the only one doing these "crop circle" designs and as such I don't see it "fitting in", but wTf do I know anyways? Seems a lot of people feel the same way but Eddy is in love lol

Aside from them being unaesthetic (IMO) all these circles increase tooling time and tool wear, things which eventually lead to higher end $$$ for the consumer :( If they did something for performance OK but....

Sounds like an EK marketing stunt: "EK released yet another glorious product today. It is now the best thing on the planet."

Funny, when they released the "Best" thing on the market it can be improved upon later. Shouldn't the best reign true without revisions?

Good job EK, you deserve the pat on the back.

The EK I have is universal aside from mounting hardware and the plates inside the block. Mine came with a full universal hardware kit and all three plates for inside of it.

Good point. As a machinist I KNOW that takes an extra process, tool, and programming for a purely aesthetics thing with no function and that frankly the majority of people don't even like.
