I am interested on a kit like this (the 240mm version) to replace my somewhat aging setup on my backup rig (radiator had a leak in one of the channels, and after two reairs it is stil lleaking a bit). I do have a question though, would replacing the Supremacy MX block with a Supreme HF CU greatly affect temperatures? I like way more the look of that block, and it is still a decent performer even for today's standards.

I have the EK 360 install I will be uploading, as well as an unboxing of the x34 Predator display.

Eventually I plan to do a couple other videos relating to more of a review/performance video for both of those items.

Do you have any problems with it, you might have the sleeping problem, screen flashing, coil whine, backlight bleed and not reaching 100hz

None of the above other than some backlight bleed, which it seems almost all of them will suffer from.

At 60hz or 100hz:
Screen flashing, no
Coil whine, no
Sleeping problem, no
Not reaching 100hz, no. Worked straight away.

Only BLB on my display.. between 1 being least and 10 being most, I'd give it a 5. Top and bottom corners on the left side. right side is fine.

It is the normal heat spreader. Honestly, I think you'll clear it.

Now that I got my LEDs I decided to front-mount the predator and I'm keeping it this way. Flipping the fans around was easy and props to EKWB for those screw-ziptie mounts, never seen anything like it and it really does keep everything tidy. Building on the Evolv ATX was really fun, this case amazes me of just how tight and neat everything gets. I'm going to consolidate all my pictures into this post so it can help future inquires to see how everything mounts up for the Evolv ATX and Predator 360 combo.

You could switch both CPU blocks. The HF was indeed a very nice performer! thumb.gif

Nilla09. Final post by us here and I won't read or post here anymore. Got the 240 Predator today. Installed it in the X99 system. It ran 12 Deg C hotter, 38 vs 52 than the H100i with identical settings installed back to back. Had to cut the ends of the screws/bolts for the block mounting on the CPU and run a thread tap over them for mounting the water block. The unit started leaking out of one of the radiator hose connectors as there are only 2 or three threads holding the hose coupling and hoses to the radiator. It is on it's way back to Amazon and Alltex now and the h100i is back in the X99 machine and is again back to 38 Degs C for the CPU. The GPU runs at the same temp. as the CPU cuz both are running at the case temp. Yeah everybody, I don't know what I'm doing with my multi degrees 45 years in engineering and electronics and computers and manufacturing experience.
Everyone have a great day and maybe someone will have better success with the EKWB Predator than I did.

Sincerely, bye now from The Two Furrbles and Walt Prill.

Not to doubt your claim of experience, if true. Everything you have posted has been complete garble and misinformation. Much of it not even relating to the topic of this post especially when you started posting your ssd scores in a vendor's product thread I was surprised you weren't booted then. Considering you had to cut anything to install a AIO that someone with no experience would of read the actual manual first to know that some of the X99 boards require a different set of screws to install it.
