*** NEW *** EK-Supreme HF High Flow - Highest Performance CPU Water Block - Copper/Red Plexi

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...e79d28fcfcb6b0

Other than the Color same thing? One lists CU I assume it's copper while the other does not.

Thanks

One is Full Copper plated the other Full Nickel plated other than that there is no difference.

Copper tends to have slightly better heat consumption than Nickel just keep that in mind.

Damn near identical... You would struggle to detect any difference unless you had the equipment to measure said small difference. Yes, the pure copper will perform better than the nickel plated, but the nickel plating is micrometers thin, and won't make any more than 0.5 degrees difference under extreme load. The quantity of TIM you use will make a larger difference here...

Personally, I'd choose the one that goes with your colour scheme better.

Nickel doesn't tarnish as fast as copper though. Nickel will look better with longer use then copper will.

Dazemod made a review regarding the EK Supreme HF Full Nickel.
And he is talking pretty bad about it. He says the top is scratched also that he did not expect much of this block especially after he had tested the Full Copper version.
And that the flowrate of the Nickel version is slightly less than the Copper ones?Oo

Aren´t they exactly the same block except the plating?
Also has their been a documented tempreture difference between the EK Supreme HF Full Nickel and Copper version???
