EK-Supreme LTX vs EK-Supreme HF

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What the difference between these 2 CPU blocks? The HF is almost double the LTX in price. I am not planning on trying to get crazy on OCing, so will the LTX suffice for me?

Here are tests for both :

http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/03/18/i7-3930k-cpu-ek-supreme-ltx/


Main differences beside difference in performance in my opinion are these :
- EK-CPU Easy Mount HF mounting mechanism with LGA-2011 add-on
- Universal Intel LGA mounting plate (preinstalled)
- Additional universal AMD Socket mounting plate
- Universal CPU retention backplate

With LTX you have to choose AMD or Intel version and you have to buy a backplate separately.

I plan on buying this from performance PC, I was looking at the listing there (linked in first post) for the LTX but there was nothing that mentioned this back plating? I am using a 1155 processor (intel i2500k)...does it come with the back plating you mention? if not link to it as I cannot find it?

Thanks!
