I'd agree with that assessment. EK has a large enough presence and especially with the CSQ design. Love it or hate it, it definitively boosted their brand recognition over the past year. Not to mention, they've got some of the most stylish water blocks and reservoirs on the market.
Aquatuning is a large distributor of EK products but if customers were determined to buy EK products, other suppliers will step up. Hell you could probably buy directly from the EK webshop.
