1. EK CSQ design is here to stay
2. Old design is not coming back
But new CSQ design may/will get developed further, as much as old design has been throughout the years.
The first step to supplying what customers asked us for, were single bridges and of course there is more to come in the future.
Enjoy the weekend!

So, I guess I will end up looking at giving other companies my money, since it is obvious that EK doesn't care to listen to their customer base.

I suspect a lot of their former customers will be saying the same thing. I know I will never buy anything from them again as long as there isn't an alternative to CSQ, and will stop considering them in recommendations to others about what to get. My roommate is considering a WC loop and wanted my help, so I'll be looking toward other manufacturers to fulfill his needs. Nice going EK, you just managed to completely alienate a large number of your customer base.

That's good.

I have a spare RX360 radiator, Danger Den reservoir, and D5 pump sitting around.

I'm also itching to go to Micro Center and buy a new Gigabyte Z77X motherboard, Samsung RAM, Switch 810 case, and i7-3770K CPU for $665, and make that my new main rig, take my old i7-965EE system and have that as a backup gaming machine/folding rig.

If EK comes out with some non-CSQ water blocks, I might just pick up a CPU (for the 3770K) and GPU (for what ever I put in my old rig) water block from them and build me up another water cooling rig.


PLEASE EK, come out with non-CSQ options.



[Edit]

Well, looks like both I an EK were typing at the same time.

If Eddy doesn't get it, I think that's what I'll be doing too. Pretty sad since I like EK Copper and the understated but classy look they represented. Guess I'll see if I can get Mips now. At least I know they won't be clashing in my build. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

As do 20-25% of the Water Cooling Enthusiast crowd. Apparently Eddy thinks there is money to be made there or he wouldn't be taking this stance without offering replacement tops lacking CSQ bubbles. I'm glad you're happy with them and would never tell anyone they're wrong for doing so. mellowsmiley.gif

@Eddy_EK/EK_Tiborr...

I've mentioned this before in the Water Cooling thread as well as here now. You have the design capability in your CAD files that you can lean on to apply to the new product. Not doing so when you have people demanding the old look is incredibly short sighted and poor management. You know you have a problem but refuse to do anything about it? That makes ZERO sense. You don't have to do it right away but I would suggest at least putting a short run together as a test to see if the market gobbles them up. As many people there are that like the old look and don't like the new I think you'd have be nuts not to put a test run together.

I for one bought EK because it had a history(pre Nickel issue) of being a Performer. I bought Supreme HF Classified Edition v1 because that's what my friends were running and recommended for me when I wanted to go Water Cooling. I got Dual DDC v2 because it matched well with my Classified block. I bought my Full Coverage block for my Formula because of the heat issue AND it matched well. And I bought my EK Black Nickel Comps because once again they mated well with my gear and didn't detract from the theme of my system. I only have two non EK items in my case and that's because you never offered a DDC Res for the top and don't have a low profile Radiator of less than 30mm thickness. I need Universal blocks for my GPU and had intended to purchase your Universal Bridge series because it fit with the theme and the look I was going for.

If you can't keep your buying public in mind when they have been loyal to you (Even after the Nickel issue) then well for lack of a better way of putting this...

Screw EK! I hope you enjoy what little time your company has left. I will not be recommending you to any of my friends who are looking to move to Water Cooling. You cannot see the forrest through the trees and that is a shame. 2cents.gif

Last week I found the old design block for the 680 on the bay... some uk seller, auction stood 2-3 days before it was snapped for like 80$ (he knew there will be lots of bids so he made the auction short). There's an obvious demand for those. smile.gif

i see EK soon to be the next danger den
post #288 of 323
I was actually thinking the same but didn't want to express that in my previous post. redface.gif

Overall, when looking @ DD blocks vs EK blocks, EK done better design jobs through out the years.

To sum it up...

The difference being that with Danger Den, the vast majority of people are sad to see them go. EK on the other hand, if they went belly up now, because of all the loyal customers they have "annoyed" over the past 2 years.
