Hello there guys and gals. Today we have here the EKWB Supremacy liquid cooling block to have a look at and give a test for you. The EK supremacy is a direct successor to the EK Supreme HF. This water block promises to be a better block in terms of hydraulic and thermal performance. EK-Supremacy is also the first CPU water block on the market which has been optimized for every modern CPU platform independently with the use of different type of jet plates to ensure the best contact with the CPU integrated heat spreader (IHS). These jet plates of different shape and thickness are enclosed with the product. With this one can achieve the optimum bow needed for obtaining best possible temperatures.
Now to the point they even state clearly on the box it beats the Supreme HF by a 2 whole Celsius. Considering that it is well known that good water blocks only ever fall between a degree or two difference shaving a further 2 Celsius off the temps is a really bold statement to make! Today we will find out if it can do it and give you guys an unboxing.
First up we will give you a brief history of EK and what they do.
EK Water Blocks
The whole EK water blocks idea came about from a guy called Edvard König in 1999 when he bought his first computer. Edvard experimented with Overclocking and quickly found that air coolers weren’t up to the task of cooling his highly overclocked system. He found out a little about water cooling and from then he aspired to build his first water block.
Edvard had a friend called Dave and Dave was highly into overclocking also. Edvard and Dave built a pressure testing device and set to work on their first prototypes.
After many sleepless nights, drawing and sketching ideas Edvard and Dave brought to surface their first prototypes, the EK-1, EK-2 and EK-3 waterblocks and soon after finally brought out their first production water block, the EK 4 pictured here
After that came the EK-6 and in 2004 the EKWW (wave water)and soon after their first gpu full cover block. From there the company started working full force into the design and development of water cooling and now they have built up a production facility of 10 cnc machines and design their blocks with high tech CAD-CAM technology and go through a very nifty solidworks flow programme. Then after a vigorous process testing the waterblocks product’s sealing to 2 bar (30psi) pressure they get shipped out. Here’s a picture of their facility
