Ek supreme ltx, any good?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Anyone here own a ek supreme ltx?

I was looking to get an ek supreme hf then isaw the ltx was alot cheaper.

Anyone know how it performs compared to it's big brother? Also What about flow restriction.

I will say I actually kind of like the way the ltx looks more than the hf.

The HF will perform better than the LTX. The LTX is " Light Extreme ". The base of the block is the same, but the top isn't. The injector thing is supposed to be better on the HF. I don't know about the flow compared to the HF, but it does have better flow than the LT ( older version ).

You think the ltx would perform better than my current rasa block?

If it did, it would be like a 1'C difference. Not worth it.

Your RASA block is a very good one.

Yea, but its ugly. Im really going for looks now. But if the block performs horrible it wouldnt matter how it looked.

So you really think my rasa block and the ltx would be within 1-2c of each other?

The base of the LTX is not the same as the one on HF. Other than that it's the same cooling engine.

Regarding flow: HF has ~ 1/3 higher flow than LTX and about 2/3 higher flow than the old Supreme.

Well I've already decided I'm getting a new block. Was just the decision of going with the Supreme or the LTX. I think I will be getting nickel plated supreme. A few sites have the new EN revisions.

And before someone else points out how good the Rasa Block is, I already know. It is a great performance/value block. As far as performance I couldn't be happier. I'm going to be changing up my theme a little bit, and that involves alot of nickel smile.gif

The HF is vastly superior than the LT series. I would have just purchased the HF first instead of the LT. Though, I could care less about EK atm tongue.gif

btw, what's wrong w/ the Rasa, its really good. It nips at the heels of the HF biggrin.gif

The Koolance 370 is Nickel and will perform nearly identically to the XSPC Rasa or the EK Supreme HF. I cannot find the Heatkiller 3.0 in Nickel but it may be available too. Those would all perform as well as the Rasa. Good luck.smile.gif
