EK offer waterblocks to gpu, motherboards, RAM and cpu as well as radiators, pumps and reservoars. They are simply a too strong brand with competitive prices to just leave out. I feel you are a bit stuck in the 2000 era and your inventory lacks the popular products of watercooling. For example you really only have 2 significant brands of radiators which are alphacool and phobya, watercool and aquacomputer rads I wont count since the are not the mainstream people are going for. What about Xspc, EK, magicool, black ice radiators? They all come in different shapes and sizes and most vendors carry more then 2 brands of radiators.
Its great that you have some unusual brands such as aquacomputer, watercool, koolance etc. but you must also focus on the main stream brands because that is what majority of people will be looking at due to brand recognition.
There's been some history between these brands and AT, to the point where reseller contracts have been cancelled. So it wasn't like they simply refused to stock parts. But that's really out of the scope of this thread to be honest, a search on the relevant party association will tell you more.
