I allready have a EK-XTOP Dual D5 Serial which I love and it performs great. But I need a new dual top for my new rig

I just installed the Revo in my build. It definitely pushes the water at 100%. I have it at constant 100% with the fan pins not plugged in to MB. I currently push through a 360 and 480 EK 60mm res and evo cpu block, with my titan x pascal block to be added once it ships.

I made a rookie error and accidentally ran it dry for a second when messing around with other stuff and forgot to unplug it,, but didnt kill it /phew.

That's great thumb.gif But I still wonder how it is compared to the older one. Did a search but couldn't find anything

At the end of the day it comes down to what works for you. There will always be someone with a bad experience from s said product. Everyone has there on comfort levels with certain products. Alohacool fittings leaked on me and the brand rubbed off in a few weeks of handling them. Would I try them again probably as there new glass tubing looks nice. But I really don't care about brands. To me it's whatever works and looks nice. Price does have some sway to but I ek won't sacrifice build quality for a few bucks saved. That being said I'm itching to change my loop up. Having two kids one 6 mi the and one three makes finding time for building hard

I'm thinking of putting post in my system to support the wight of my RX 480 block. The reference 4x 480 is very flimsy and I'm getting a lot of pcb bend making me nervous. I think that's throwing off the contact with the block a bit. I don't really want to drill into my power supply, but that may be the only. If I just let the wieght of the block put enough pressure to hold the post in place that should be fine. Any suggestions on material?
post #16855 of 21093
I'm using EK and Alphacool material since 2003( EK "Wave or Nexxos HP"..I still have an EK Full cover WB for Ati X800XT here)..A long ago before they were know in the US..
When there was only Dangerden and Swiftech or Koolance there.
It was 2 differents worlds beetween US and EU..
Innovatek was the first to introduce 8/10 G1/4 compression fittings and made the things a lot simple for us(at least in EU),then came Alphacool,Watercool,Aquacomputer and..after came EK.
I will not mention Asetek,cause this company always made only crap since 2000...and worse of all they introduced the AIO concept..

Anyway,who cares about the "brand",except for fashion?

Alphacool was N°1 in EU for years ,then they felt and EK took the leadership..Also EK was the first to go on US Forums and ask people what they want,what they like and bla bla..Good marketing,good commercial vision..
Now EK is so well implanted in the US that there' s no competiton with others..even with the reborned Alphacool(thanks Aquatuning).It's too late.
Watercooling is not a passion anymore, it's fashion ,it's bling bling..Moonsoon or Blingspower,so much overpriced that it becomes indecent...Really, 20/25 euro for ONE fitting..woaw so cool..rolleyes.gif
And when things becomes fashion it's only question about money..The richs can and the others just look at..

Not anybody can spend 500 euro just for a set of fittings(without being sponsorised)..So thanks to XSPC to make affordable stuff,thanks to Alphacool and EK to make some innovative and not too expensive stuff..
Also "Watercool" is for me the "best" balance in terms of quality and price;quite the same with Aquacomputer..

Even Bitspower rotary fittings sometimes don't rotate or leak( i have some)not only the Alphacool ones..Same with EK stuff,same with every one...

UT 60, Monsta(wich is just a concept),XE,PE,SE...They all come from China..aren't they?

PS; please excuse my bad English..I'm French.smile.gif

EK blocks are not more expensive in the US...maybe 5 euro difference..
And all the other brands are less expensive then it is in EU..
And for the "choice"..no competition ,you can buy what you want in the US,with great prices..Here in EU ,no Phanteks,no TT,no Swiftech anymore,no Koolance..even not the XSPC Blade (cheapest WB for GTX 1080)..
Bispower WB ?..here in EU..no way never..

Europe is dead brother...
post #16857 of 21093
@musammi84 I'm sorry if I misread you. I Know I went with EK not because of marketing but because they were first to market with an rx480 block other than a chinese company. It looked like there were dead spots in the flow over the ram on the Chinese block. Might have been fine, but EK has a good reputation here. Maybe that's marketing as you say, but I've had good support from the company reps too. I also think it's reasonable for a member of the EK club to think that the other people in the club like EK products best. Just saying. Know your audience.

For the price, a blade might have been a better choice on a $220 video card. It's only $66 on performance pcs. I paid $117 for my ek block. XSPC was a couple of weeks late to market though.

edit:

some say the VRM cooling isn't very good on the xspc block. I don't know though. I'm not having the greatest EK temps yet. but that's a lack of trying on my part ^NOT on on EK's part.

In my opinion, every manufacturer has their own ''expertise''.

And i mean by that, some manufacture's their CPU block is 2 degrees better than the other manufacurer, but their rads perform a little better for example.

Ain't that all part of the game? of being an enthousiast, the persuit of every last bit of performance? there is no such fuzz in the EOC world, some use Kingpin, some der8aur, some their own made stuff. They dont pick up their pitchforks and go ham on other users using other brands. and saying mine is best. thumb.gif

Ooh ooh, let me throw unnecessary, fuel, Asus makes the best mobo, everyone else is garbage. Yes you are entitled to your opinion, but F your opinion. I am right if you do not agree with me it is because you use an inferior product and are jealous. Moreover, I have only owned 2 asus products in my lifetime or 20 years, so I have sufficient life experience to make this statement. Any that you claim are better, are clearly *copying* asus and have no originality. Any sites you link stating otherwise, are not reputable......hahahahaha I can't keep this up. These disputes over who is better are gold. End of the day it's personal preference, remember brand loyalty isn't something that can be bought.
