Nice thumb.gif. As you progress through this obsess... I mean, hobby, of water cooling, you'll refine your skills. If you can, try to shorten the tube runs a bit and see if the rad can go inside your case.

All I'm saying is that they really should consider making a plain top that resembles the previous series.
And you don't have to look far to find that 80% that isn't happy with the new look of those blocks. Pretty much every Enthusiast site(their consumer base) has an 80% or better disapproval rate.
Sure the blocks are growing on some people but I wouldn't expect it to be any other way so long as EK refuses to take care of their customers by offering a plain top. But I won't start naming sites and linking them because doing so is against the TOS of OCN. wink.gif
But offering the ability to make plain top covers for the CSQ blocks would solve better than 50% of their disapproval rating with the Enthusiast crowd. That's 100% of their market. I fail to see how this could be bad for them. They would have the opportunity to make their lost consumers happy.
Sorry if people don't agree, I'm not trying to be the spokes person for everyone but someone already modded their Supremacy top to get rid of those fugly circles and the frosted look. Did you notice how many people chimed in that they would be willing to buy THAT from EK? There is a niche to fill that they just abandoned. mellowsmiley.gif

I'm not knocking you,I can see why the design change bothers you if you already own EK products and want to add to them.
Most users avoid EK for the nickel issue rather than the CSQ I should imagine....im not a fan of it myself,but I would suggest that the new CSQ design is selling well regardless of the 80% hate rate claimed.
Also,It does make a change from the normal blocks of delrin so common to everyone else,this is how XSPC,koolance,watercool etc, operate and to great effect.They should of carried a supply of the older design,or build some cross compatibilty into the new design.

Either way its here to stay.

There is this though. I always quite liked the LTX but went with the Supreme HF for performance reasons. I find myself becoming less and less worried about performance and more nice aesthetics.

Next Monday I'm going to be selling my EK Supreme HF Acrylic CPU water block, the only area effected by the missing nickel finish is under the jet plate which can't be seen and three small area along the o-ring seals, everywhere else is looking good!

At first I didn't like the frost, but when you see color added behind the frost it looks awesome! While the circles aren't the best design for most they really don't bother me to much, they have grown on me a little. It would be cool for everyone if there was an option to default back to the original design and/or perhaps a custom design of your own, then you could customize things in a whole new way!

I wanted to thank the forum for the input that was provided I have gone ahead and got all AQUAComputer because I am OCD and since I am going to only watercool my CPU I think the RAD I have purchased should do the trick. (I did finally find masterKleer tubes)

Below is what I have purchased and will be putting it together in 61 days and a bag and drag as soon as I go on an RR from Afghanistan.

I would have been all over that... especially if I could have just gotten plain and black. Don't care for the translucent look and hate the circles. It's funny though - I totally dig their design in print (boxes, etc) - but not on the product.

I've always thought about digging out all those LEGOs that I've had packed away for the past 30 years and building a case from scratch using them... if I ever realize that dream... I can't think of anything that would fit more perfectly than the EK CSQ stuff. Just not in anything outside of a LEGO case I'm afraid. biggrin.gif

Like this or this only watercooled and maybe even bigger. biggrin.gif

OMG... never ran across this before...

Would the EK-Supreme LTX AMD non-CSQ give me better performance then my current Rassa block? And how much roughly?
