Yep...Here's one of my DDC combos.



In the meantime, got the new Revo placement laid out. Think it will look great once I fill it!

I've seem to hit a dilemma as I bought an EKWB Supremacy MX - Acetal from Coolerkit and wanted to use this block with my ASUS Sabertooth X99 motherboard, however upon inspection the four holes where the block gets screwed into are solid! It seems ASUS did the same thing as Gigabyte and ASRock, by not adhering to Intel's standard for socket 2011 mounting as well. This means this water block is completely useless to me since the mounting screws are too long and will hit the motherboard, due to this combined socket 1150/55/56 and 2011 mount system EK came up with. And it's even listed on the EKWB site as compatible with my motherboard. Worst part is I can't even return this as I bought it 18 days ago (only got 14 days return).

So what can I do now? According to Coolerkit, there are no optional mounting accessories for this block available.

Um... the mount locations for socket 2011 and socket 2011-3 have a sort of "stop thread" feature. The holes for the mounts aren't supposed to go all the way through the board. Refer to the socket 2011 mounting instructions. They will show you that you don't use a backplate. Intel standards on socket 2011 don't have the threads all the way through the board.

No the backplate isn't being used at all, but the screws are longer than normal 2011 screws so they fit in socket 1150/55/56 mounts as well (thinner thread on the tip), which means that thread will hit the base of the motherboard unless I actually saw them off (and I don't have the proper tools for that). It's the same problem with the EK Predator AIO right now, which will not mount on most X99 Gigabyte, Asrock, or ASUS boards.

- EK-Supremacy MX is not compatible with LGA-2011-3 motherboards that do not have mounting holes through the circuit board

That's too bad. @d0mmie are you sure the mounting holes doesn't go through the circuit board on the Sabertooth? Sometime they just put a thin film there to cover the holes which make you think the screws are going to hit the circuit board. You should be able to confirm this if you check at the back of the motherboard.

So I have both a EK-RES X3 400 and 250. I have been using them with a DCP 4.0 so far. But now I want to change to a D5 for aesthetic reasons. But I can not find the bottom part that connect the D5 to the res?

Couple of questions for you awesome ppl.

I was planning on buying the following components.

https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-kit-x360

To that I was going to add

https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-coolstream-xe-240-double

and a

https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-fc-r9-295x2-acetal-nickel

Question 1. With the added radiator and the GPU block, am I only going to need to add 4 additional compression fittings?
Question 2. The 295x2 backplate is end of life! How do I get one? Isn't it kind of needed?
Question 3. How come when I use the configurator it shows the 295x2 cheaper than the main page?

I JUST did this but with a L240 kit and a titan x block.

1. 4 additional fittings yes, 2 for the new radiator and 2 for the block. the other 6 should be included in the kit (2 for rad, 2 for cpu block, 2 for pump/res combo) total = 10
2. i'm not familiar with the 295x2 but if its like the titan x. backplate is more of a cosmetic thing. it adds passive cooling and can shield your gpu if you leak from above it. but functionally speaking not required.
3. im guessing one of the 2 is outdated.

I'll try answering a few of those for you:
Question1: The kit's usually include all the needed fittigns for a basic loop, which means you have everything you need for the CPU loop with the radiator, reservoir, pump and CPU block. then if you want to add more components you will need two fitting for each of those, and since you wanted a block and a radiator then that means 4 fitting. So yes, you don't need more than 4 more compression fittings to go with those components, just remember to get the same size as the ones in the kit since that will let you use the tubing from the kit in the entire loop. You may want to look at some angled adapters though if you have some runs in mind, but they are usually not needed and are mosly an aestetics thing.

Question2: The blocks work fine without the backaplate, the screws that come with them are designed to fit without a backplate mounted (the backplate comes with seperate longer screws usually).

Question3: I have no clue... My guess though is that the coolingconfigurator shows the original price while the sore has a lower price since the product is closing in on an EOL status and they want to clear the stores of them.
