EK Velocity AMD AM4 block, very quick question

Inside the box of this said WB, they supply a single additional metal "plate".. what is this for? I remember back in the day, the EK SUpremecy block shipped with multi different "Plates" for different cpu configs like 2011-3 and 115x cpu's. But I cant see why they include an additional "plate" since this is only for am4 cpus... Clue me in please

It's probably for a FMx motherboard, I know some of the Velocity blocks shipped with AM4 & FMx parts similar to how they ship their Intel kits like you mentioned.

Jet plate blocks like EK and Heat Killer focus the stream of water at the middle for a focused "cooling" on the middle of the block. This is good for single die cooling such with intel CPU's. While I'm sure the difference in minimal, I'm guessing the EK blocks come with a jet plate designed to cool a multi chip CPU better by spreading out the flow pattern across the entire CPU block.

That's just a guess, I've never used and EK block and I've never seen a picture of said jet plate or read up on it.

Here is the reply I got back from EK;

"Thank you for contacting us.
The additional JET plate included with the block is there in case you decide in the future to change from the AMD to Intel and after you purchase the Intel mounting plate and backplate for the Velocity, then you can as well change this jet plate in it and you have Intel ready block.

Best regards, Ales"

And there we have our answer!
