First up we’re going to take a look at the pump. Packaged in soft foam to keep it protected during shipping, the EK-DCP 4.0 has two G1/4 threads, alleviating the need to purchase a Pump Top. Capable of pumping up to 4 meters high, the DCP 4.0 is more than capable of powering through even the most demanding loops.
EK provide their Advanced series of tube reservoirs with the HFX kits, which is great – it means that they COULD have added a basic reservoir model, yet opted to provide one with more options for you, their customers. A huge amount of ports on both the cap and base allow a variety of installation methods and tubing direction.
EK’s XTX 360 radiator is huge. I mean, absolutely massive. At 64mm deep, this radiator is going to take up a lot of room. If you’re interested in this kit, make sure your chassis has enough clearance to take the radiator and fans required without overlapping too much of your motherboard – some VRM heatsinks or RAM modules may be too large to accommodate it. The CoolStream XTX 360 has 11FPI (fins per inch), allowing tons of surface area to dissipate heat effectively. A total of five ports on the radiator, again, offer you flexible choices for tubing management.
The EK Supremacy CPU waterblock is currently EK’s flagship. It comes in a variety of designs such as copper/plexi, acetal, nickel, nickel/plexi, full copper and full nickel. This design variety ensures that EK cater to all of their potential customers. Featuring interchangeable jetplates (that silver metal plate you see in the pictures) allowing you to get the best cooling potential from your current socket, as well as a full copper base (with a mirror finish too!) The plexi top allows you to see your coolant flow through the block, and with colored coolant this looks incredible. EK’s logo is visible in one of the blocks corners, and the inlet/outlet ports are G1/4 threaded, which is the industry standard.
