I always thought EK were a bit better company from what I'd read

Having read this thread and seen the evidence I definitely would never use their products now.
Thanks for taking the time to expose them to us.
Very shoddy of them

Ugh... I'm taking my rig apart next week and I really hope I'm not greeted with that sight... I'd probably have a meltdown.

Wermer and Dredknot, thanks for posting these threads. I am currently in the process of building my first rig and im wc it. I was originally going to be getting nearly everything from ek until i read wermers thread from a year ago, and now i see the new stuff is failing to. Im definately going with other companies now.

Another person who's had trouble with EK here. My two 580 nickel acetal blocks also corroded. But keep in mind to anyone reading this thread is just meant to show you to avoid getting NICKEL plated products from EK. Their copper products are still great, but nickel I'd wait for a year or so until their new stuff has had some time to be used and see what people find about em.

True but for me the way theyve treated theyre customers has prolly turned me away the most. Also with strens roundup eks best was average so for now it ek just doesnt impress.

So was that the "new" en plating technology or is the new tech only in their CSQ line?

I believe so. Before the 6xx Nvidia cards I don't remember any CSQ, only came with the new ones.
