(Little problem with Performance PCs) Difference between EK Supreme HF Designs...

post #1 of 71
Thread Starter 
Is there any difference between the oval Supreme HF and the squared one?

I am asking that because I live in Brazil and I bought one EK Supreme HF from Performance PCS, they sent me the oval one but I am 100 percent sure that I bought the squared one. If the difference it is only the screw (aesthetic), then I think that there is no need to ask them to change, but if there is a performance difference than I think I should.

What do you guys think? I dont know if I will have to pay for the shipping of the one that it is with me and of the right one.

The one that they sent:

The one that I bought: ek-supreme_hf-acetal_600.jpg

I have read this Topic and another one on Xtreme Systems, but they didnt have a clear answer.

I also bought 4 Bitspower Rotary 45 Degree Adapters and one came defective (It won't rotate, no matter what I do) and I will ask them to change.

Thank you.

Well looking at the pictures on EK's site the square one is for full copper or full copper w/ nickel plating. If you ordered normal acetal, acetal + nickel, or just nickel then the oval one is the one you bought.

the oval one is revision 1. 2nd one is the current updated version or revision 2

I would return it and ask for the proper one that's actually pictured. they are advertising for rev2 and selling the rev1

This is not true as I've bought the acteal + nickel and installed it just yesterday and it's the square one.

+1
Though the biggest difference between the two is the look and the version 2 comes pre-installed with the #1 jet plate (2 slots) instead of the higher flow ones. There are alot of reviews around OCN so I'd check to make sure there is no performance difference between the two. If there isn't I any difference you might want to keep it to save on shipping. If however you're sending the fitting you might as well do the block at the same time.

I had an issue with them advertising a blue acrylic top for the Rev. 2 and they shipped a rev 1 top.

Yah, email them stating the situation. Also, I bet I can guess that theres a hand written number on the box (and it was already opened). They did this because the distance from the centers of the inlet/outlet holes are different for different versions.

Theyre good about replacing a wrong part that was sent- unfortunately this has happened to me every time I order from them frown.gif It does get old...

Exactly that.

The hand written number is 1.4cm.
