    I have done both, sticking the lid back on is easy though you must pay close attention when centering the lid to closure. One small drop of good thermal epoxy will hold it long enough to get things done. Naked is a little more serious and requires a solid mounting system of equal pressure on all points, the lid polished was fine for me most of the time.

    Hey Moonman, i noticed that in your 3770K testing, the Koolance 380i block is in the regular orientation, as oppose to the "rotated 90 degrees" in the 2500K test done previously. i am wondering if the temperature will improve if you rotate it 90 degrees.

    The best jet is #6.





    Thanks chispy, nice to hear that from XIP




    I have to ask EK for that jet, my Supremacy was released before the J4 was added.
    sorry... i think you mis-understood me. i meant that the test you did for 3770K was the regular orientation. i am just wondering had you done the 3770K in the 90 degree orientation,the results wouldn't be so bad.

    Excellent review! Only thing missing is using the J4 plate for 2011!

    Great job with all of your testing. I want to ensure that I am reading them correctly. I am putting together a system which will include a core i7 4770k and the EK supremacy. It looks like Jet 2 is the best setup for that processor. Please confirm that I am reading this correctly. Thanks in advance for your help.

    The EK supremacy is an excellent block indeed, I just built a system yesterday with a 4930K and that block and a Thermochill PA 120.3 rad and the temps are retarded cool. Very nice mounting system for the board with large spring screws for tension.

    Hello, have you verified the results of Phobya UC1 LT with Stren.
    This model is the second best in his review, however it's also the worst in your review.

    AGAIN, Phobya UC1 LT is the worst, doesn't make sense.

    Hi

    About your tests with a 4930K and Ek Waterblock Supremacy

    1) The best montage is to put the "fitting" parrallel to the ram (fittings up and down and not left and right), right?

    2) Ek Waterblock "recommended" the jetplate #4 I believe (7mm) with the Sandy Bridge-E (same with Ivy Bridge-E I think)

    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...acy-Jetplate-4

    3) About the thermal paste in your test, the Phobya Hegrase is last with 8?C difference with the Gelid Extreme.
    I saw on the web, these thermal paste were "identical" point of view perfomance. The Gelid Extreme is really best?

    thank you very much

    Good review.

    Btw, you should always add which blocks support Koolance QD3/4 and Swiftech iLok quick disconnects ( with 19/13mm-3/4 OD tubing ). Very important information.
