    WB CPU Ek Waterblock Supremacy

    Hello

    It seems that the new block Ek Waterblock Supremacy (for the CPU) is more powerful than the Supreme HF on S2011?
    What is changing?

    Thanks
    Sorry for my english

    Supremacy has a bigger base, modular bow and different injection plate. Micro channels are also different. Final result is a 1.5ºC better block with also better flow.

    Ok thanks

    Top Plexi of the Supreme HF is not compatible with the Supremacy (I do not like the top of Supremacy)?

    Yeah the circle thing was not something I would think would help sales any. It's cool to try and come up with new and innovating designs, however there is a grey area to what you like as the business owner and what your customers would like. Not many like the circles.

    Cool story bro.

    I, on the other hand, take the performance over the looks any day. Circles don't bother me at all.

    I have the black acetal Supreamcy cooling my Ivy in my case and i can barely see the circles. In real life it's not too bad i have to say. Still prefer the old look though.

    +1

    Somehow when I say something about the CSQ design, ppl seem to jump all over me.

    Really cool story bro. (Works both ways and equally condescending)

    Really though, when the performance difference doesn't amount to a single MHz of extra OC than any other leading block, looks become slightly more important to many folks.
    Circles SucQ!

    If your annoyed by sigs telling you to put things in your sig, then put this in your sig

    Bribery won't work on me...just say NO to AT!!!

    scamps: nice work, but there are lot of users not willing to put in extra work in milling 'em down in already expensive hobby products, that should be without major functional or design faults since beginning. For such only option are competitor products or EK's older ones while they still last in stock. I'm a bit dissapointed for EK's principal stance on not bulging a bit with CSQ and not considering providing alternative, even if higher priced. Of course, if there will be significant drop in orders compared to old times they'll change his mind (in year or two?), but it will be too little too late and unfortunately another point hurting their reputation by not listening customer wishes in this niche hobby.
    I still expect Supremacy to be among best if not THE best cooling efficiency wise. Regulateable bow seems wise next step to squeeze out extra performance.
