EK Supremacy EVO


Slovenia based EK Water Blocks is certainly one of the best known names in computer water cooling. Some of the most well known custom builds feature EK products.  While EK does regularly release new products, these are almost usually an expansion to a current line of video card and motherboard water blocks. While there are many an enthusiastic that eagerly awaits EK to release a new water block for one of these products, nothing gets them more excited than a new CPU water block. That brings us to where we are today, the EK Supremacy EVO.

EK Supremacy EVO, a direct successor of EK Supreme, a CPU water block that was used as the standard to judge all other CPU water blocks. The EK Supreme is the basis for the design of the EK Supreme EVO. It still fits all modern CPU sockets and is equipped with a universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation. The pure copper cold plate is there as well. Even from the outside the EK Supremacy EVO seems to differ little from its predecessor. Don't let that fool you though, there was plenty of revisions on the inside.

Inside, EK has changed the way water flows through the block. There is now a multi-piece insert that allows better control over the water flow. The insert is removable and can be changed as necessary. When combined with the included jet plate, the EK Supremacy EVO can be configured to all popular modern Intel and AMD processors.
