EK Fluid Gaming Liquid Cooling Kit A240G
• MPN 3831109890721 • EAN 3831109890721 • LINK Geizhals.eu

For several years the AIO cooling market has been stagnating and mostly limited to closed CPU-only solutions. Options for affordable expandable kits have been scarce, which has barred many potential users from going down this path.
To the delight and surprise of many, myself included, EKWB came out in full force with their brand new EK Liquid Gaming lineup, a fully customizable liquid cooling kit at a never before seen pricetag; it almost seemed too good to be true. So, what were the compromises? None which impact EKWB’s well known premium performance, the answer lies in the main manufacturing material: Aluminium, rather than the usual Copper/Brass.
This comes at a cost of segregating this lineup from EKWB’s other liquid cooling products which are based on the aforementioned metals, since mixing them leads to an undesired chemical reaction by the name of “galvanic corrosion”. It must be noted that EKWB has done their utmost to warn and inform its users of this incompatibility.
All of this seemed great, but I had to try it out for myself and put these claims to the test.

The Call of Duty: WWII PC Open Beta has nearly run its course, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the game ran, so I decided to benchmark it over a few rounds, at different resolutions.

The Core i7-7700K is overclocked to 5200MHz, the GTX 1080 Ti runs 2025MHz and the G.Skill RAM is set to 4133MHz @ 16-17-17-28 (full timings will be shown at a later date as they’re not final).

Note: The Corsair AX1200 power supply was replaced by a Corsair RM1000x after these pictures were taken.

This is leftover tubing, on the right it’s visible that one of the ends was bent out of the box, but due to the excess there were no issues.

The cutting tool is a Hose Cutter from HighFlow.

Mismatched cable combs because power supply was being replaced, full custom sleeving is coming.

Another quick benchmark like the one I shared last weekend, but this time from the Star Wars Battlefront II Open Beta.
