Speaking of the alphacool, it appears that the 'ocool' logo on the block is a sticker. Anyone peeled that off ?

I wonder what he meant by EK Supreme HF "JP6"? how similar is the HF block he tested is to mine (HF Copper-Plexi)
the data says, if im reading it correctly, that the Raystorm is almost 2c cooler than the EK Supreme HF.. im tempted.

JP6 = Jet Plate #6

EK supreme HF with jet plate 6, which is the best performing jet plate.

And one Raystorm performed about 0.6 to 0.7C better than the other Raystorm, likely just bow/milling differences between 2 samples, unusual that the all copper was worse than acetal/copper, but likely just chance that acetal had better milled/bowed base.

looks like top 5 blocks since all within 0.5C, are going to be roughly same performance wise, as sample variance would likely exceed the tested difference.

Glad I didn't put money on that bet...lol. I would be paying up today.

Very nice review. Besides performance lets not forget style. You get top notch performance and style with the DT SNIPER. biggrin.gif

Yeap, they peel off easily with just an razor blade or scalpel blade. This is a good thing, as they are often put on crooked or off center--at least on their radiators.

Stren, without going full review, what are your thoughts on the Supremacy? It got the most votes here and a lot of folks were looking forward to see how EK's new design turned out. How well does it stack up against the Supreme HF?


Thanks if you get a chance to answer my questions cheers.gif

Thanks opt33 - yes you're right. Martin saw the same thing with the raystorm. The copper may cause a different bowing than the acetal version.

Well from my results it's about 0.4C better. EK expected this number as apparently it still has more bow even with the 2011 jetplate than it needs for socket 2011. The difference should be greater on IB apparently (1-2C) but I haven't tested it.

I like the feel of EK's blocks. They both have a solid mount and feel well designed and machined. The fit of the parts is good and I like the thumbscrews. It's not a bad choice if you're not looking for the last ounce of performance. As to why it doesn't perform in my review as well as we all expeted I'm not sure. It could be natural variation from machining as opt33 says but I'd need another block to test that.

Here's a look at the data with the 95% confidence intervals calculated from the Standard Deviations:


It gives you an idea of the relative difference that a given mounting might make. There is some reason to do some optimzation on mounting the Aphacool, Raystorm, and Phobya.

Nice - I like this - is there an easy way to do this in excel?
