EKWB Announces Supremacy MX High-Value Water Block

 

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce EK-Supremacy MX - a brand new cost-reduced variant of EK-Supremacy EVO flagship performance water block, introduced in 2014. It has been designed to lower the production costs yet still offer premium hydraulic- and thermal performance at the best price.

EK-Supremacy MX is a reduced cost CPU water block, available in both AMD as well as Intel variants, which comes with pre-assembled, error-preventing mounting mechanism. The result is a perfect installation which results in optimal performance every time.

 

 

"Since the release of EK-Supremacy EVO our main task was to bring the same performance level to the entry class", said Niko Tivadar, Chief Technology Officer at EK Water Blocks.

EK-Supremacy MX brings exceptional value for the money by providing the best in-class cooling performance. Built upon the same cooling engine as EK-Supremacy EVO it offer the same great hydraulic performance and almost identical thermal performance - maximum performance at two-thirds of the original price. The key features are:

 

  • - ultra-high thermal performance - only slightly simplied copper base allows EK-Supremacy MX to achieve almost the same cooling potential as EK-Supremacy EVO.
  • - very high-flow design - low hydraulic restricion allows this product to be used in setups using weaker water pumps.
  • pre-assembled mounting mechanism - blazing fast installation, especially on Intel LGA-2011(-3) platform.

- The EK-Supremacy MX uses the same cooling engine as the EVO variant. The cooling liquid accelerates through jet plate's nozzle and turbulently continues its path through numerous very thin channels, which provide extreme heat dissipating surface area.

- Specifically designed and carefully machined copper base (sometimes referred to as 'cold plate') is made from purest copper available on the market and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of EK-Supremacy MX.

The base of this water block is made from CNC machined electrolytic copper while the top and insert are made from injection moulded (M)ABS polymer. Top is covered by black anodized brushed aluminum aesthetic cover. Translucent top variants have two slots for easy installation of 3mm LED diodes.

Mounting mechanism comes pre-assembled to the CPU water blocks and is secured with a circlip to hold it in place. Such design allows for a blazing fast installation, especially on Intel LGA-2011(-3) platforms!

Due to commonality of parts, the EK-Supremacy MX offers the potential for an upgrade to full EVO standard.

CPU socket compatibility - Intel variant:

  • Intel LGA-1150/1155/1156
  • Intel LGA-2011(-3)

CPU socket compatibility - AMD variant:

  • AMD Sockets: 939, 754, 940
  • AMD Sockets: F, C32
  • AMD Sockets: AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+

Enclosed:

  • EK-Supremacy MX series water block with pre-installed mounting mechanism
  • EK-Supremacy MX Backplate (for Intel LGA-115x platforms)*
  • TIM / thermal grease: EK-TIM Ectotherm (1g)
  • Torx key T20

My Thoughts

What EK have done here is produce a cheaper variant of the EK-Supremacy Evo, which maintains a very pleasing aesthetic look and feel. The block can be used with LEDs to illuminate the block. According to EK's own data the performance delta between this model and the Supremacy Evo is minimal, which is great for those on a budget, or those who like the looks of this particular block.

The block is currently available in 4 variants  with pricing in the table below. The EK Supremacy MX will be available to purchase from EK or their partner retailers.

Sorry but I think this looks far nicer than their EVO (I have an EVO)

Add some LEDs and the light is forced out of the sides providing a nicer glow. Considering there will only be a few degrees difference in Cooling between their low and high end variants, they are going to sell these like hotcakes.

i can already see many customising the faceplate.Quote
