EKWB is an enthusiast favorite and water-cooling juggernaut that started as just one man's simple idea. Fast forward to the present and if you have looked into building a custom water-cooling loop, you likely without fail would have also taken a long look at what EK has to offer. They have earned numerous awards thanks to their exceptional quality and attention to detail. Other than a few hiccups along the way, EKWB has been wildly successful and now looks to truly enter the all-in-one liquid cooler market with the EK-AIO series of products.
In today's review, the EK-AIO 360 D-RGB watercooler will be pitted against numerous high-end cooling solutions to see just how well it performs. Unlike most liquid coolers on the market, which are based on either Asetek or Coolit designs, among others, the EK-AIO 360 D-RGB is a custom in-house solution. The pump inside the CPU block is fully custom and based on the company's SPC series. While the radiator is aluminium rather than copper, it has a lot more heft to it than I expected for even a 360 mm offering. Add in three EK-Vardar S 120ER D-RGB fans and you have a killer solution, at least on paper. That said, before singing any praises, it might be prudent to take a closer look at our testing of the new EK 360 mm AIO.
