EK vs Koolance

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Yo guys. This is my first time to watercool my system and i just need an advice of which of these two cpu blocks (EK Supreme HF; Koolance Cpu-370) works better in terms of cooling performance, reliability and such. I hope i'll get an answer soon. Thanks.

EK for best temps and if you got the money

if you want something budget yet performs ~2*C of the EK Supreme HF then get the XSPC rasa

Here's a review of the EK:

The mounting system was the only concern.

Here's a mini review of the Koolance:

http://www.pureoverclock.com/review.php?id=909&page=6

It's an upgrade from the 360 so that's a plus.

Overall I really think the 370 takes it verus the EK because of the mounting issue but if you can get the new mounting for it both of them should be very good. Majority of the time water cooling really depends on the user and not the product. If you we're to ask me both older models of these were used by my buddy and they wer're both pretty good performers. I say go with what's within your budget and what looks good!

They're both really good blocks, so go with whatever look you like best. The temperature difference isn't by more than a few degrees, and the 370 is supposedly slightly beating the EK HF by 1 or 2 degrees with their new plate design.

Thanks for all your feedbacks guys. Actually, cpu-370 was my first choice because i really like its design, and i considered ek supreme because apparently it had an unprecedented cooling performance. Now, because of all ur feedbacks, im settled with the 370. You know wat, perhaps ill try them both! I cannot wait to watercool an i7-990X cpu.

what you are looking here is old HF design. There is rev.3 out now with new mounting mechanism, which is a bit more akward than made by koolance. However, once you get it installed it is easy to use.

and if you look at these results newest EK block does much better on more criteria than koolance 370 (better temps, better flow, lower price--if you take acetal top,...)

but since most people here are not for breaking records it is just a matter what suits you more.
